It starts with a nice spicy rye aroma. The palate comes on sweet, followed by spice and some acidic notes which lead to a finish that is drier than the palate with some nice spice.

 

I'm not generally a fan of Beam ryes, but this one is pretty decent with more rye character than Beam ryes typically have. It was a bit too sweet on the palate, but otherwise came together well.

Nose: Maple syrup, bananas, alcohol notes

Palate: Raw alcohol notes with a slight sweetness, some cocoa notes, and then a weird, strong chemical note, like a bad perfume

Finish: It ends on a sort of rotten fruit note.

 

This stuff is horrible.

Nose: Fuel notes (like what it smells like at an auto mechanic garage) and grapes

Palate:It starts with those fuel notes and coastal type flavors, then some of the fruity grape and malt comes out but it comes back to the fuel and a touch of peat.

Finish: A small amount of peat, a hoppy note, ocean breeze and grape pits.

 

Very nice, complex and tasty.

The nose has a lot of wine character; it mixes with the peat to produce some fuel like notes. On the palate there's that same dynamic - first wine along with some fruit notes, then peat, then fuel-like notes but with a bit of spice, likely from the Madeira. The finish is mostly peated with some spice on the palate.

The nose is very light with vague malty notes. The palate is a bit more forceful and quite nice, malty and lightly sweet with a syrupy mouthfeel leading to a malty finish with a slight fruit note.

 

Straight forward but quite nice.

The nose is malty with some perfume notes, sort of smells like a bath store.  The palate starts maty with that perfume note, then some cinnamon, ending on ginger, slightly soapy with some white wine. The finish reflects these same notes; it's pretty consestent but also pretty meh.
