Marble & Rye house Bordeaux. Nice — 3 months ago
One of the few Rye Scotches out there. Definitely got a dry, dusty, rye nose on it. Same in the flavor profile. Some said it tasted like a Whistlepig, I would say maybe more like a Piggyback than any of the others for me which also lines up closer age wise as well. Nice although I wouldn’t describe it to someone as a Scotch and therefore kinda see it more as a novelty. — 3 months ago
Radiant orange tint on garnet. Meaty with plum and fig, raspberry with pipe tobacco and pine tar with a sweet burnt rye aspect. There are subtle strawberries and black cherry, blood orange flambè, and dried violet on the nose. Dried raspberry and blackberry, cranberry tannin combo, wolf berry, red currant and smoke. Delicious with Bresaola!! .

Well now this is different. An oloroso from PX but it is merely off-dry. If I wanted Sherry to replace a piece of rye bread, lightly toasted and spread with apricot jam and sprinkled with walnuts, it would be this. Sadly oloroso in the morning probably isn’t a good idea but why not have breakfast for dinner? Actually I think this would pair very well with French toast with an ample pair of amber maple syrup.
Good for dessert tambien. — 3 months ago

This is the best bottle of $12 red wine I have ever had. Super smooth dark fruit of plum, black cherry and blackberry. A real winner. — 3 months ago

So judged after the rye Scotch Arbikie which people said was unfair since that flavor stuck around for a while. I describe it as non-descript. There just wasn’t a lot there in the nose or the flavor profile. Coming back to it later didn’t do much for me either. It was labeled a “down the fairway” Scotch. I’m obviously then been spoiled by these classes. Not bad. Not exceptional. — 3 months ago
