How to Drink Rye Whisky in The Glass Punjabi Club Rye Whisky displays a golden straw color, and when the whiskey glass is tilted and twirled, stubborn legs forming, some of which refuse to drop back into the whisky. The nose is full of clean oak and rye spice with obvious notes of fresh grain and straw accompanying the spice. As the glass sits, orange peel and citrus fruit notes begin to climb out of the glass as well as some fresh ginger and coriander spice, a wonderful aroma from a beautiful Canadian whiskey. There is also a firm underlying sweetness, which may remind you of cotton candy and marshmallows. The oak and grain scents seem to grow a little stronger, the rye whisky offers a lot of promise on the nose.
How to Drink Rye Whisky Neat Upon sipping this whiskey neat you will find the flavor of rye in the foreground is surrounded by oak spices. In the background, but growing in intensity with each sip of this tasty whisky, is a sweet and sour fruitiness, which seems to be trying to overtake the hard rye and oak spice (and does so after just a few sips). The fruit-like flavors have an exotic flair with bits of mango and grilled pineapple mixed in with orange and sour apple juice. There are sweet minty menthol-like undertones and a firm grassy (and spicy) tobacco lurking underneath. All of this makes for a very unique and interesting rye whisky.
The finish after every swallow of this delicious rye whisky is spicy with an almost gin-like accent of pine and coriander combined with ginger rushing through the exit.
