Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    • Nose

      A classic unaged spirit nose. There's no overwhelming alcohol notes; instead, there's cream soda, white pepper, green apple and cinnamon.

    • Palate

      Richer, sweeter and more complex on the palate than I was expecting. A whack of cereal at the front turns into warming dry honey in the middle, with white pepper and clove bringing up the rear.

    • Finish

      Short to medium, with a lingering spiciness.

    • Comment

      A lot more interesting and complex than I was expecting from such a young spirit. It's full of flavour.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy

    • Nose

      Sour apple spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, with mineral touches and freshly milled grain. Clean and uncomplicated, but with more interest than many unaged spirits.

    • Palate

      Soft and sweet, with growing cinnamon and clove, cream and some of the stony minerality from the nose. Gets fruitier and spicier as it sits on the tongue, developing some resinous notes.

    • Finish

      Spicy but short, with a bit of apple and some anise.

    • Comment

      Surprising – from the nose, I expected something with a lot less complexity and flavour. It's got the spice, fruit and interest that you want in a sipper and it's got enough punch to work well in cocktails.

  • Producer's Notes

    • Perfectly clear to the eye, the spirit at 41% abv has impressively long legs around the rim of the glass.

      Very fresh but elegant on the nose, you are met by a wave of aromas, sweeter than you would expect from a rye spirit. First present are the sweeter characters of honey and butterscotch, which then give way to more savoury and spicy aromas of hazelnuts, fresh bread and white pepper.

      On the palate we are again first confronted by soft, sweeter characters as well as a lovely, more intense acacia honey flavour tinged with rich butterscotch, and a hint of liquorice. These initial flavours then give way to those more commonly associated with a rye spirit:- nuttiness, hints of malt and yeast, and a touch of clove.

      The finish is long and zingy and the spicy mouth feel is overlaid with the fresher characters of the initial tasting.

    @MattTheRhino,

    Not tried it, but as a fan of both whisky and rhinos, I feel I should point out that the illustration (Durer's famous rhino woodcut) is not of a white rhino, but a greater one-horned (Indian) rhino. What that has to do with french rye whisky is anyone's guess.

    Anonymous,

    Quite disappointing. Resembles grappa more than it does whiskey. If you like smooth and aromatic American rye, the French will surely fail to meet your expectations. Interesting to try once, that's about it
