Review #10 | /r/WorldWhisky Review 2 – Alberta Rye Dark Batch
The Schtick: It’s Alberta rye with some sherry added.
ABV: 45% ABV
Source: Bottle, Purchased
Nose: Like a raisen + dark fruit basket. I really like it though. Deep fruit notes with a little added sweetness. Very gentle for a rye nose.
Taste: Coats nicely on the tongue, more of that dark fruit although there is a tad bit of a plastic taste. Well blended, tastes like a grown up juicebox with almost none of that typical rye spiciness.
Finish: Medium to long, gently falling off with more of those dark fruit notes.
Overall: This is pretty interesting, but not really great. I use it a lot in some custom blends I’ve been experimenting with due to the dark fruit notes and I’m really impressed with the value. Tastes like a watered down MWND with a little less port and spice.
Thanks for reading!
