Review #10 – Alberta Rye Whisky Dark Batch

Review #10 | /r/WorldWhisky Review 2 – Alberta Rye Dark Batch

The Schtick: It’s Alberta rye with some sherry added.

Distiller: Alberta

Bottler: Alberta

ABV: 45% ABV

Age: NAS

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!
