Door number 6 of the Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Michter’s US*1 Straight Rye, bottled at 42,4% is revealed!
For me a nose filled with flavours of spices, pecan nuts, vanilla and caramel. There is also a very present layer of coffee, sage, laurel, red cabbage with red apples, cinnamon, ginger bread and baking spices.
The palate gives me at first spices, creamy vanilla, liquorish and candied ginger. After some time I can find more fruits on this palate like banana, red apples, plums, redcurrant and strawberry. Also some chocolate, sugar coated almonds and maple syrup are between all these flavours…
The finish is soft and not very long. A soft vanilla sweetness and a hint of the maple syrup stay behind. Thanks to #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskeyAdvent !
