McKenzie Rye

Love this rye. It’s not too intensely rye forward, and has complexity due to being aged in wine barrels. — 20 days ago

Steiner Hund Riesling 2019

Straw golden in colour yet this is no Spätlese.
Puristic, pure and stony mineral in the nose - slate, warm stones, a salty whiff and only far in the back - a piece of white peach, a slice of underripe pineapple, a few drops of honey.
Clean as a whistle and so fresh.
On the palate this is tightly wound and with great focus & depth, yet this has some substance & weight, too.
White peach, apricots, white pear and some rye toast. And lots of stones. And some white tea like tannins. And a very long, mineral, pure, beautiful finish, that leaves a hint of creaminess in the after taste.
What a beautiful, complete & complex wine!

Château Duhart Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Another 2005. Magnum kept the oxygen in check, but reveals it still quite young. Magnolia in a warm breeze. Cherry blossom. Pine, chainsaw heated. Coffee rye. Violets, both fresh and dry, on this floral led bouquet. Rich blackberry in a medium-verging-heavy mouthfeel rich black currant, ripe cassis, sloes, rosemary, sweet mocha tobacco, black cherry and smoke. Relentlessly rich.

I don’t have many ‘05s. But ‘09s and ‘10s in excess. I may need to visit some auctions.

Buffalo Trace Distillery

Sazerac Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

How does anyone not hoard (regular) Sazerac at ~$25?!
Incredibly smooth, great sweet note to the finish. Again, why haven't I not been buying this for years...?

(BTW Kirkland Bourbon at $30 is worth the price of admission, earthy oak note on the palate is quite similar to Buffalo Trace.)

Counter-Clockwise from top left:
Buffalo Trace (single-barrel selection), Jefferson's Reserve Very Old/Very Small Batch, Knob Creek (9yo), Kirkland Bourbon (7yo), St George single-malt (SM 015), Hillrock (Ancram NY, solera aged, Barrel No. 174), Berkshire Mountain Distillers Shay's Rebellion and Wild Turkey Master's Keep (Batch 0001, 17yo).
