Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 28, 2021Light nose, muted but sweet aroma. A different tasting rye, almost nutty. Simple and good sipper. Small but good rye burn and Ky hug after.
Russell's Reserve 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 1, 2021Nice traditional style bourbon. Heavy corn yields sweet on nose and palate and has nice touch of heat with the rye. Good spice given the low % of rye. Caramel and vanilla body. Pleasant aroma, warming sensation. Feels stronger than a 90 proof.
Old Pepper Single Barrel Rye
Rye — Lexington, USATasted November 30, 2020Sweet nose of molasses and caramel. Minty, spicey, peppery rye taste, upfront and expected, but well balanced. Also get some fruits which is surprisingly good. Finishes well, not too hot or alcoholic linger. Pleasant rye.
Remus Repeal Reserve Series III Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Indiana, USATasted November 5, 2020Tasting neat. Slightly alcoholic nose, rye coming through. Taste more of pepper, whether that's mint or actual pepper. Small lingering aftertaste but still good.
Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 5, 2020Tasting neat. Good solid nose with caramel or butterscotch and a very smooth finish. Nothing rough here, could drink this all night.
Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon (2018 Release)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 1, 2020Tasting neat. Unsure of the release year but is the toasted barrel at 86 proof. Pleasant nose, sweet tones, molasses perhaps. Mellow flavors, very smooth and creamy. For 86 proof, has a nice small bite with it. Sits well.
Booker's Bourbon Batch 2016-04 "Bluegill Creek"
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 29, 2020Tasting neat. (Unsure if this is the bottle in the distiller database but this is a 128 proof pour). At 128 proof it can feel long and heavy. May be easier opened up. Sweet tones both in nose and taste come through, especially after initial burn. Complex bourbon, would like to try again.
Wild Turkey Bourbon 101

Old Weller 107
Bourbon — USATasted October 29, 2020Tasting neat. Distinctly different from others I've had recently. Smooth, light. Very easy to drink. Makes other bourbons seem heavy and rough.
Old Forester Single Barrel Bourbon 90 Proof
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 29, 2020Tasting neat. Nice sweet nose to it, maple and molasses. Easy to drink, leaves a nice tingle and bite. More enjoyable than I would have guessed.
