Belgrove Rye Whisky 47% ABV | 500 mLBelgrove Distillery - Kempton, Tas
Australian distilled. Bright gold appearance. Immediately appealing and distinctive with its dill / pickle opening scents. Second pass offers chamomile tea, hints of boiled lolly, cedary oak and peppermint. A light, silky entry follows through to a super smooth and quite delicate profile featuring medium dry flavours of chamomile tea, sour dough bread and unusual notes of dill and caraway. Dry, mildly tannic finish. Aftertaste is subtle but shows good length.
C: red gold, copper
N: creamy and buttery, ripe tropical fruits like passion fruit and durian, grainy, fresh dough, sultanas, soft Xmas spices, jelly beans and icing for cakes, a little bit floral
P: grainy and malty, slightly peppery, green wood, milk chocolate and vanilla, spicy with a creamy texture, almonds, green walnuts and wet hey
F: warming, spicy, creamy texture, salivating, quite long and intense with grainy attitudes
C: Drink this Rye Whisky neat! No ice, no water, no mixers! You’ll be surprised how soft and tasty it is!
The relationship to the un-aged rye cannot be ignored!
