Pikesville Straight Rye 6 year old 110 proof Review

Pikesville Straight Rye 6 year old 110 proof I was lucky enough to be gifted for review a Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar and this Pikesville Straight Rye 6 year old 110 proof is one of the drams from that calendar.

This is an interesting one for me, with spice straight away on the nose and then green peppers (Capsicum) both fresh and roasted, both notes i really like too, a hint of meatiness on the palate adds to this making it very interesting and for me quite tasty, i liked this.

Buy from specialists like Master of Malt

Thanks to Drinks by the Dram for the calendar.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Spices much more upfront here, PVA glue, green peppercorns, green capsicum, spiced barley sugars, the capsicum notes are becoming more like roasted/charred capsicum

Palate

This is more like how I expect a Rye to taste, doughy brown bread, roasted capsicums, gentle cinnamon infused sugar and crushed peppercorns, a slightly meaty note too

Finish

Really warming, thick syrupy
