Unusual nose, the most unusual component of which I can't find words for, of course. Bubblegum, caramel, canteloupe. Tastes dusty. (This was tasted blind, and the note doesn't mean it tasted like dust, it meant it had characteristics found in old vintage whiskeys). Stone fruits -- peaches and nectarines esepecially. Bit O Honey in the finish.
The nose here is stellar, that's an A-. But overall B/B+.
On the nose it has those great sandalwood notes that old ryes have. The palate is syrupy sweet with grape juice notes and then more of than sandalwood from the nose along with spicy rye that's more familiar from current rye whiskeys. The finish is full of spearmint and spice.
A bit too sweet and the sweetness gets in the way of the nice sandalwood and spice notes.
Agreed, the nose on this is great. Nice sweetness, and the rye/spices really float out for me. It's very light on the palate, with the rye and some sort of menthol. I like the sweetness. Maybe some figs and other fruits? Not much of a finish, but I could nose this all day.
