- 100% rye, single barrel
-13 years old
Nose: Spicy with an aroma of pine trees, pepper, and oregano, emphasized by delicate sweet notes of caramel, vanilla, and maple.
Taste: Creamy with a lively entry of vanilla jellybeans and caramel. It's extremely bright with a delicious pine tree presence. Waves of spice absorb onto the palate, with notes of anise, black pepper, and tannin.
Finish: Rich and balanced. A sweet spice and oak tannin lingers for a long, mouth watering experience.
Conclusion: The Spirit of Mortimer will indeed live on, as this will always have a place in my heart. From nose to finish, it's a well balanced, complex, and delicious rye whiskey. No doubt it exceeded my expectations..so much so that I've started looking for another bottle!
My Rating: A (Great)
