  1. E & J VS Brandy

    American Brandy — California, USA

    Bought some of this to use in sangria, so I'm "tasting my ingredients." I've been tasting lots of 4-plus-star spirits lately, so...this is not one of them. It's instructive to try something mediocre. This is fruity and almost syrupy. It's not hard to drink, but it's not a joy. (It is smooth, at least...)
  2. Johnnie Walker Black Label

    Peated Blend — Scotland

    Smooth with a solid flavor that I first IDed as smokey but is apparently the peat. :) Easy drinking, with a nice rich flavor.

    So, this is one of the best Scotches I've ever had. (Oh the irony.) Smoky, peaty, complex, but smooth. A flavor explosion. This is amazing.
  4. Green Spot Château Léoville Barton Single Pot Still

    Single Pot Still — Ireland

    Very "Irish-y" (so smoky?), really smooth, rich from the Bordeaux and just a tad sweet. I really like this.
  5. Bushmills Steamship Collection Sherry Cask Reserve

    Single Malt — Ireland

    This is tasty and easy to drink, but flavors are all over the map, leaving nothing to really stand out. Has smokiness, and a sweet sherry finish, and something makes me think of honey. Smooth, almost silky, but a somewhat plain landscape.
  6. Bulleit Bourbon

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    Esp for the price point, this is a smooth and tasty bourbon.
  7. Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock & Rye (84 Proof)

    Herbal/Spice Liqueurs — (bottled in) Pennsylvania, Multiple Countries

    Tasted

    This is like candy. Sweet and orange-forward. It's not a complex and subtle masterpiece, sure - it's just really easy to drink and really tasty. Careful!
  8. Ardmore Port Wood Finish

    Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland

    Quite good. Sweet and smooth, I'm getting some peat but it's hard to say if that's from the Bunnyrabbit (whatever) that I just sampled (although I deliberately cleared my palate). At any rate, this is pretty good, but there may be better for the price.
  9. Bunnahabhain Ceòbanach

    Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

    Peatey. Hmm. If I think of it that way, it's complex and interesting, makes me think of peat (yes) and the smoke of a well-banked coal bed. If I don't specifically keep that context in mind...first smell was "dry erase marker," first taste was "that smell when gluing a carpet seam." I think this ain't my thing.
  10. Jameson Irish Whiskey

    Blended — Ireland

    This is what I think of as archetypical Irish Whiskey. And as an everyday, keep-in-the-cabinet staple, I quite like it.
