Detailed Tasting Notes

Nose Review - Rating: 71

At 107 proof Lock Stock & Barrel 16 Year Straight Rye is a lot milder, all the way, around than I anticipated. I get simple whiffs of pine needles and mild vanilla on the nose. Subtle beer or hops notes too.

Palate Review - Rating: 74

The palate has mild malty notes of caramel and cocoa, but everything is very mild and this rye does not taste like 107-proof rye.

Finish Review - Rating: 70

Virtually no finish. Nothing to grab onto. Very disappointing.

Uniqueness Review - Rating: 75

Average. I've seen reviews of how great this is and it makes me think I have a bad bottle.

Value Review - Rating: 65

With an MSRP in the $129.99 plus range, this is a massive disappointment.

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
