Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
750ml bottle. Dark amber. Two fingers of head. Aroma is all rye whiskey at first and then joined by some lovely dark fruit notes. Cherry, tree bark and wood. Quite a flat mouthfeel and the taste has chocolate, fruit and wood. There’s a dryness that helps drinkability but feels a little harsh at times. Very good, and quite distinct from regular Old Numbskull.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
750 ml bottle. Cheers veliemboys. Pours a dark amber colour with a small white head. Aroma sweet toffee, burnt caramel, perfume and some fruitiness. Flavour of strong sweet toffee notes, some astrigent, strong stinging wooden tartness, raisins, bready maltiness, some mild floral notes and a fair amount of vanilla. Full bodied. Finish is quite strong on sweet dried fruitiness and wooden tartness. Complex. As a big fan of rye whisky this was quite a treat.

fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from Beer Monger, Portland
Brown color, dark, with thick creamy head. The aroma is noticeable even from the bottle as soon as it opens; the malt has an unparalleled richness, fresh, perfumy, creamy, intense. The body is thinner than expected; good malt flavor, but with the rye it gets a bit too boozy, and the feeling lingers on the tongue.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
75 cl bottle @ olio. Bottled 19.09.2013
Aroma is odd with old rye bread, some ripe fruits and caramel. Flavour has vanilla tones, some rye bread and sweet caramel tones. Also some harsh malt. Too sweet and sticky to be a slow sipper; not bad but the drinkability just suffers too much.
