A Spicy Young Rye
Reviewed by John Fegan on
A fantastic Rye Whiskey with a high(70%) Rye mash bill complimented by 20% corn and 10% malted barley this F.E.W offering doesn’t pull any punches and is an absolute steal at £45 if you like your whiskies on the raw side.
Aroma: Complex and fruity with an interwoven spice
Palate: Candied orange, interwoven vanilla and cinnamon
Finish: Lingering, spicy rye and wood notes
Produced by F.E.W
Average Price £45
A rye heavy whiskey, with just enough corn in the mix to give a spicy sweetness. As might be expected from a distillery company named after a figure head of the temperance movement (Frances Elizabeth Willard) this Evanston offering is an irreverent rye made with red wine yeast, aged in air-dried oak barrels, and well worth exploring.
