Copper Pony Rye Whiskey
Copper Pony Rye Whiskey, 6 months, 45 %
Not sure I want to do this, but I guess I have to. OK, here goes. Time for another TerrePURE whiskey. Remember this stuff? No? The company behind TerrePURE is called Terresentia Corporation. You can read up on the technology here, or watch this video. It's all about chemistry rather than using oak for maturation...
Nose (16/25): Alcohol bite. Vegetables. Vanilla and wet planks. Smells like something fermented and left in the back of the fridge way too long. There's a strange sweetness seeping through here after a while - which does not really help.
Taste (16/25): This tastes like what I image cheap aftershave tastes like. Lots of raw alcohol and massive amounts of perfume. Pepper and a strange metallic taste.
Finish (16/25): Metallic, bitter and flat - completely flat. Dies before it ever comes alive.
Balance (16/25): Well, it is dead, and it is dead cheap. Not sure what else I can say at this stage.
