The Very Olde St. Nick brand was designed for the export market only. It was originally supplied by Julian Van Winkle III (of Pappy fame) and then shifted over to Even Kulsveen (Willett). These were all bottled in the early to mid 2000s.
The nose has heavy rye notes and caramel. The palate has some dark caramel notes without being too sweet, then some spice which continues into a peppery finish. This one was great with a great balance of sweetness and spice.
