Door number 12 of the Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Knob Creek Rye is revealed!
On the nose I am getting a clear note of Dutch butter cake, pepper, woodpolish, nutty, marzipan, chocolate malt, honey and mint leaves. The palate has much of the same feeling as the nose but with some enhanced fruit notes.
Added to that is a creamy layer of vanilla and some spices. Getting some flavours of banana, red apples, caramel, blackcurrant, red grape juice, cinnamon and kurkuma. A soft finish with notes of wood spices, vanilla and honey. Thanks #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskeyAdvent !
