Today I present a rye whiskey from Kentucky, the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye.

This is a classic rye with a mashbill that has 53 % rye, slightly over the required 51 %. The proportions of corn and barley used is not known to me.

You can buy the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye in Norway at NOK 670 (7880401), in Sweden at SEK 479 (8341701), and online in the UK at around GBP 42.

Nose: Creamy and sweet. Pepper - black and white. Orchard fruits and marzipan. Warm leather and milk chocolate. Red berries in the back.

Taste: Medium body and a fairly spicy delivery. Dry with a green touch.

Finish: Medium to short. Fades away quickly. There's some caramel, red berries, vanilla and pepper - then poof.

Comment: A middle of the road rye.
