Willett Family Estate Bottled Straight Rye (America, Rye Whiskey, 54.1% abv)
Nose: With the first sniff, it reminded me of its emollient scent. I can also say the smell of freshly washed laundry. Floral notes are very pronounced. These notes are followed by vanilla, caramel and oak. I was very surprised that ,1 degree alcohol did not feel at all.
Palate: The floral aromas that I get on the nose are also present on the palate. Red fruit, vanilla and oak notes are accompanied by sweet spices and very light black pepper. Creamy and aromatic. It does not feel the keg hardness, but still has a soft drink.
Finish: Medium to long, spicy and woody finish.
Comment: Willett Family Estate Bottled Straight Rye was an expression that surprised me. Although it has a high alcohol content of .1, it has a soft and non-tiring character (especially on the nose). In short, I can say the harmony of floral notes with oak and spicy flavors.
This expression is for the first time Gusto Whiskey Club we did together “Hidden Treasure of the North, Rye Whiskeys” I had the opportunity to taste it. In addition to Willett, we tasted successful rye samples such as Hudson Manhattan Rye and Sazerac Rye.
