Belgrove Rye Whiskey. Image courtesy Belgrove Distillery. This Australian Rye has notes of dill and basil on the nose, along with a pickle juice-brininess, mint, and touches of pepper and allspice in the background. The taste is spicy and intense with black pepper, hints of lemon zest, and herbal notes of mint, dill, and basil that come out as the spices fade. The finish is spicy with a peppery touch that lingers along with the aromatic herbal notes. A splash of water lightens the spices and opens up the flavors on both aroma and palate, making it smooth, creamy, and excellent. (July, 2014)
