WhistlePig The Boss Hog VIII: LapuLapu's Pacific
Rye — CanadaTasted November 26, 2021The Boss Hog VII is one of my all time favorites so far his has a lot to live up to. Molasses, alcohol vapors and spices permeate the aroma. Fully body with nice balance of molasses, spices, smoke and pepper. Finish is smooth and lingering with some heat. Very delicious, but not quite as good as the previous version.
WhistlePig RoadStock Rye
Rye — Vermont, USATasted November 26, 2021Light smoke, green pepper and butterscotch on the nose. Body is on the thinner side. Pepper and light brown sugar come through in the taste. Good, but maybe a little pricey for the flavor.
Garrison Brothers Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey

Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandTasted June 13, 2021Love that what makes Highland Park doesn’t get lost here, but gets some added complexity from the aging in wine casks. There’s plenty of smoky peat, but vanilla, oak and some dried fruit come through as well. Full review here on my YouTube! https://youtu.be/tCfxH5xC-tw
Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Barrel Proof Rye (2020 Release)
Rye — Tennessee, USATasted June 12, 2021Caramel, maple and pecan on the nose, but not too sweet. Good amount of heat, but that gives way quickly to so many wonderful flavors. Burnt sugar, pecan and fruit. Surprisingly smooth for the proof. Wow.
