Domaine des Hautes Glaces 100% Organic Rye (Cask #79), 53.1%

Price: $90 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Explore the layers of this malted rye. It is herbaceous and minerally throughout, with aromas of licorice, chamomile, ginger, tarragon, incense, cooked pears, bread dough, cinnamon, and soil. The flavors express grain, minerals, and earth—tarragon, licorice, peppercorn, roasted peaches, walnut shells, and assertive but not overpowering oak. This young whisky's flavors are from the field, fermenter, and still, not the barrel. Unique, complex, and exciting. (450 bottles)
