Had my first taste of Old Overhold Straight Rye Whiskey...80 proof..no age statement..last night and now tonight....very nice.
Nose...typical rye spice, sweetness.
Taste...light, sweet, a mingling of spiciness..but very gentle.
I have not had the Ritt 80 for comparison...the BIB offers more complexity...but this rye is a nice, smooth drinking whiskey.
Aged 4 years...."It has a richer flavor than Jim Beam rye, and a tinge of sweetness which contrasts with the heat of the Wild Turkey rye."
I agree with that....it is a little smoother than the WT Rye.
Not sure why they titled it Old Overholt "Canadian" Rye....must be an error.
