Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery

Family Reserve Rye

Very light nose of caramel, vanilla and gasoline(?). It’s much stronger on the palette with caramel, charcoal, tobacco, acetone, chocolate. The finish has an odd acidic/metallic note that isn’t very pleasant and lingers forever. Not as spicy as other ryes I’ve had. It’s very complex and interesting, changing multiple times over my 20 min tasting. I really like it. — 9 months ago

Midwinter Nights Dram Blend of Straight Rye Whiskeys

Joe Ho

This is just ridiculous. Act 7. Tastes of deep figs/plums up front as if grandma just baked a pie in your mouth. Finished smooth with a tiny bit of spice and more jams that make you want to cry. More of this please. — 4 years ago

Willett Distillery

Willett Family Estate Straight Rye Whiskey 2 Years Old

Twice this venomous viper has evaded review. She jumps out and thrashes, coils round and inculcates. A devil of a bite too! Seductive, deceptive nose of caramel creme, rosemary, bay leaf and cinnamon roll. Palatal acupuncture ensues, as you slowly succumb to the hot cinnamon oil and scotch bonnet burn of the first phase. Phase two brings cinnamon and grilled peach with brown sugar cobbles and scotch bonnet honey. And finally the nose and close converge in satin vanilla, cinnamon, cracked black pepper and ginger. .
