The expert distillers at Bulleit offer us their sweet and fruity Rye offering, adding even more rye into the mix than their traditional bourbon. Bulleit Rye has a mashbill of 95% rye and just 5% malted barley and is produced in small batches, allowing the flavour to really bloom. The nose is awash with sweet cherries and classic vanilla and on the palate you’ll enjoy an intense heat that mellows into a mesh of peaches, cherries, cinnamon and orange zest. A smoky finish is just what’s needed to show a bourbon of true class.
A Canadian offering which celebrating a visit from King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1939, Crown Royal is a delicately smooth yet full-bodied offering, with oak and vanilla forming the heart of its flavour. On the nose is robust and welcoming, hints of vanilla and fruit urging you to taste. The flavour is delicate, smooth and cream-laden, with oak spice and sweet vanilla working in harmony. A gentle end note lingers.
A young Havana Club offering, this 7 year old Cuban rum gets its amber hues from the bourbon casks it’s matured in. The aroma is reminiscent of first thing in the morning, rich in roasted coffee with vanilla and gingerbread coming through too. Vanilla fudge is the prominent flavour when you take a sip and it’s soon paired with sweet dairy chocolate, fruit trifle and woody oak notes. The end result is a warm, rounded rum which is wonderful when mixed with ginger or lime, or both!
Classic Russian style of vodka. Lemon follows peppr, followers faint grain notes. The finish is medium bodied and has white pepper and lemon rind tang. Great stuff that never lets you down. Serve from freezer for best results.
Woodford Reserve is a very specific combination of corn, rye and malt creating a cereal-rich flavour. It’s unusual as its triple distilled and matured for six years, creating a smooth yet punchy flavour which is perfect for bringing out the best in your next Old-Fashioned cocktail. Thick and creamy both in aroma and taste, notes of honey, deep spice, fresh leather and cocoa come together to create a flavour you won’t be able to forget. Toast oak spice is your main reminder of the drink when you finish.
