Tasted: Mar 2012
Initially the nose is a tad shy but thereís no mistaking the clarity of the sharp rye grains. Quite complex with caramelised citrus, burnt toffee and a touch of fat corn, but itís the buzzy rye that impresses. Relatively light with a touch of unobtrusive oak.
Soft on the palate, opening with the slightly burnt, sugary corn with the rye kicking in on the middle. Seriously mouth-watering with a long violet tinged finish. Still fairly young and displaying some youthful cerealy marc like notes and just enough oak to give it structure and a dry, wood spiced finish. Well balanced with the sweetness of the corn lingering enough to offset the bittering oak at the death.
