Willett Distillery

White Oak Barrel Aged 3 Years Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey

Warm vanilla and sherry trifle notes bordering on sponge cake with candied orange peel and cloves, as well as caramel apple, baked pear, baklava and bahri dates in this nose-feast. Hot entry with heavy oak that bites like a thorny rose stem, burnt brittle, toasted black sesame, leather whips, black pepper, vanilla bean, cedar, spicy tobacco with a squirt of grape seed extract, lingers on an wooden point that suggests cypress, but my mind returns to lac and wood stain, if they were edibles. There is also an igneous quality to the whole. The wooden Arrow of rye whiskey: Hot hot hot! #Willet #whiskey #whisky #rye #ryewhiskey #rarewhisky #barrel — a year ago
