Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedVery good. Lots of sweetness with baking spice. Very smooth with little burn.
Quarter Horse Kentucky Rye Whiskey
Rye — Kentucky, USATastedI do not like the nose on this. The taste is much sweeter than I expected. It’s not bad but not great either. I will try other ryes so I have something to compare to.
Horse Soldier Barrel Strength
Bourbon — Columbus, Ohio, USATastedMy first barrel strength. I like it. I expected it to burn my face off but it was smooth.
Angel's Envy Bourbon Finished in Port Wine Barrels
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedIt’s good. I get a slightly strange aftertaste that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe it’s the port wine. I’ll try it again tomorrow and see if it comes across differently. I tried it again a few days after opening and I like it much better than the first time. The strange taste I was getting is barely there and it’s much sweeter on the nose and taste.

El Dorado 15 Year Rum
Aged Rum — GuyanaTastedBurnt sugar and banana. Smokey with a dark chocolate and coffee note. Absolutely delicious! I can only drink small amounts of this. The sweet Smokey flavor can be a bit overwhelming.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedVery sweet brown sugar notes with hints of vanilla. Tingles the tongue a bit.
James Two Brothers
Dark Rum — USATastedSlightly sweet, with vanilla, brown sugary and molasses notes. Very nice sipper with very little burn. Goes down smooth.
Blended Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTastedSmelled of white wine, peaches, vanilla and floral notes. My first scotch and I’m quite impressed. I sipped it neat and with ice. I could sip this daily. A few days after opening the bottle the smell and flavor changed. Now it smells like banana laffy taffy in a good way. The flavor is pretty much the same just stronger and richer.
