Received some samples at the beginning of the week from a fellow Sber (you know who you are, many thanks!), and sat down to them tonight for some head to head tasting. It was a treat to get my nose in, and my lips on, this beautiful juice: Hirsch 21 and Vintage 21 ryes. Similar ages, both bottled by KBD, but two very different beasts. I'm going to keep at tasting them for now, and revisit them one more time before I post some tasting notes, but the long and short is, nothing makes me happier than some seriously aged rye, and tonight is no exception!
