Seagram's Five Star Whisky Tasting Notes
Vanilla jumps out with the initial sniff. Further air contact leads to dustings of cocoa and whispers of spice. There's a delicate freshness to the nose but overall it comes over as more barrel than grain so not a distinctively rye aroma by any stretch.
Finishes with a surge of soft spice, vanilla, and mildly anise-like, fruity cereal flavours.
Pristine, bright gold colour
Entry is light and gently sweet followed by a relatively hollow mid palate
