Waldviertler Whisky J.H. Original Rye, 41%

Price: $52 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Jasmin Haider-Stadler is the second-generation distiller at Austria's most-visited distillery. The distillery is particularly noted for its rye whiskies and this is their best seller, made from 60% rye and 40% malted barley. The nose has nutmeg and cinnamon spices, milk chocolate, and dark fruits. An ever-changing spectrum of flavors delights the palate: vanilla, crisp cinnamon, dusty cocoa, hot chocolate, pepper, and bramble jelly. Any keen importers reading this? €47
