Review: Delilah’s “15″ rye whiskeyJuly 9th, 2009
Keeping the “American whiskey” postings going now for three days straight:
Delilah’s “15”, 15 year old rye whiskey, 50%, $150
Well matured, but still with a spicy rye mean streak. And there’s this lush sweetness that tames both the resinous oak and the bold rye spice. A harmonious balance between the three, actually. Warming cinnamon and cool mint meld with sweet corn, rhum agricole, honey-kissed citrus, pecan pie and cocoa powder, leading to a long, dry, spicy, leather-tinged finish. Bottled to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Delilah’s bar in Chicago. A worthy effort!
