An absolute blast of whisky made from 100% malted rye! If that's not special enough, how about a double maturation on top? The whisky first matured for 4 years in a classic ex-bourbon cask and then for 5 long years in a cream sherry cask. The color of the whisky gives an idea of what to expect here.
Aroma : Grandma's jam jar has been plundered from the cupboard and now you're greedily sitting in front of it with a big spoon. Beautiful, thick, juicy plum jam. Squeaky sweet! Behind it a few Christmas spices, maybe the spice of rye? Once again, a feast for the sweet tooth... and that's just the nose. Rubbing on the back of the hand reveals a fresh crumble cake with plums, prunes. Boiled down dark fruit pure.
Palate : Spicy, sweet attack. First fruity aromas from the nose, but then clearly more spice. At last the spice increases along with an effervescent alcohol intensity to an earthy rye flavor, which doesn't last too long and soon promises more room for the sweet plfaume again. There's a decent amount of vanilla to it. As with the nose, the intensity of the flavors is stunning. A classic Cask Wizard bottling and yet different, thanks to the exceptional profile of the rye, which pleasantly counters and captures the otherwise probably mind-blowing sweetness of the bottling.
Finish : Laaang! This fruit-vanilla combo continues to persist. Over time, there is an interplay between dark fruit flavors with pithy spice and sweet vanilla. In the background is the tartness of the rye, but as is often the case, we have a finish to lick out there. The tongue has its fun clearing the last remnants of jam from the mouth. Even when that is done, at the back of the throat the jam continues to hang on and will delight you anew every breath.
