Willett 4 yo, Family Estate SB 101 Rye, 55 %

Review #241
This is a single barrel and comes from cask 101, which is a white oak barrel. The smell is very calm and doesn’t reveal much. Some vanilla and hints of honey sweetness is coming through.

Not at all what I expected in the taste. Sweet honey and vanilla with some burned oak and caramel. The finish is very warm and the oak doesn’t dominate too much. Some coffee notes mixes quietly in with the rest in the end.

A funny acquaintance. First I didn’t expect much, but the taste and specially the finish surprised me. I love it when it goes that way! Actually, some water opens up the smell quite a lot, so go for it! I will give this 83/100 (19/21/22/21).
