Willett Family Estate 4 Year Rye
The barrels that went into this small batch combined to make an amazing drinker. Nose- Beautiful layering of brandied cherry over a mildly tart cherry. It opens up with time and is reminiscent of cutting into your desert with your fork which releases cinnamon and baking spices with just a hint of oak to remind you that this is high proof youthful.
Palette- A robust rye with dark cherry, burnt vanilla, and spices for days. It's a delicious rye with a weighty mouthfeel.
Balance - It's insanely well balanced with the alcohol so perfectly integrated at 115 proof you'll forget its there, but you'll find yourself smiling more and happier with each dram.
Finish- the finish is long and the spices dominate this batch, while the cherry does punch its way through to the surface.
Timing and quality of delivery was spot on! I haven’t busted open the stuff yet; but look forward to it as well.
Despite being 110 proof it was extremely smooth for a four year old, with a hint of sweetness
I’ve bought multiple bottles of bourbon from Sip whiskey. Always prompt and fairly priced.
Prefect by the fire with friends and family, it’s not often everyone agrees on a pour like this one!
Nice and dry. Again another Willet year that came in strong!
