Still Waters Distillery, Concord, Ontario, Canada
I realize that although I talked about their rye whiskey last month, I realized as I read through my notes that I forgot to mention an Ontario product. Still Waters at a crucial stage in its development. So here without waiting the Still Waters New Make Rye.
This is the rye whiskey of the distillery, but bottled for our pleasure even before it would be the shadow of a stay in cask. We must hail here a great translation effort worthy of "From Laws of Nature", with the name "New Make" ...
As the British mathematician and logician put it so well John Venn, renamed for designing the diagrams to which it left its name (1834-1923):
Unless I'm mistaken, I'm never wrong.
Clear as water of rock. Supergreen.
Ultra molasses of the new make. Flowers? Grass?
Rather bitter, with the rye spices well to go. A small metallic taste which is transported in the final to make it a little less pleasant.
Burnt sugar, forgotten candies behind the heating baseboard.
Yet we can not blame him for wanting to play on several tables at once. I'm not too fussy at this point, but I can not wait to see what a few years of maturation will bring.
