Here’s a quickie because I’m on the road. A few weeks ago Dan picked up this interesting bottle of straight rye whisky, something we thought was a rarity but is proving to be less of one. Lot No. 40 is part of the Corby super-brand of mid-range booze. Here’s what we thought:
Dan – ginger, flat ginger ale, no burn, soft fruits
Simon – sweet, burnt sugar, pear
Dan – felt like sucking on cinnamon hearts (good thing, interesting mouthfeel)
Simon – spicy pop, settles quick, candy, sugar
Dan – creamy, not thick, thin syrup, delicate
Simon – much more balanced, nicely nuanced
Try it? Yes! Buy it? Yes!
