Clase Azul Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTasted April 15, 2020Best tequila I’ve ever tasted. I normally drink bourbon, but my wife has started to drink this and I wanted to try it. It’s phenomenal. Has nice notes if vanilla that make it really interesting and delicious.
Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 15, 2020This is a “Hot One”. 110 Proof, so this guy packs a punch. I tried it neat and with a cube, and liked it with the cube better. Opens up the nose and is bursting with Oak Flavor, doesn’t finish with a ton of alcohol flavor. I liked it, not a daily drinker, but great for the nights you need to warm up. Fireside style.
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 2, 2020This is a hard one for me. Took me a while to find this bottle, so I had high expectations. Overall, not as smooth as I want it to be and leaves me with an unusual aftertaste. Has nice Smokey notes on the finish, but that smoke stays around for a while. Good, not great.
Basil Hayden's 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 1, 2020Really Smooth. Has a bit of a bite on the finish. Using a few cubes smooths it out. I say Oaky flavor for almost every tasting, but yeah, this one has a big oak flavor, not very sweet at all.
Henry McKenna 10 Year Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 31, 2020Doesn’t pack a punch on the front end or the finish. Really tasty, and smooth, but doesn’t seem to have the numerous different flavors that I’ve had in other 10 year Bourbons. Overall, I really liked it.
Blanton's Gold Edition
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 31, 2020Drank Neat, straight out of the bottle, did not let it breath. I haven’t tasted a smoother bourbon. Tons of oak and wood flavors up front. No bite whatsoever. Simply delicious. There is a ton a fruit on the backend as well. Tough for me to describe.
Weller 12 Year
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 25, 2020My favorite bourdon I have tasted. Open it, and let it breath. Smooth from start to finish. No bite at the end. Finishes incredibly light, with tons of Oak. Love it.
Michter's US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon (2015 Release)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 19, 2020Drinking this room temp nice. Has a full flavor and finishes with a nice oaky taste. With a large cube, it smooths out. For just an 8 year old, I really like it. (For the record, giving anything above a 4 will be tough.42.0 USD per Bottle
Eagle Rare 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 10, 2020Smooth from start to finish. I prefer to enjoy with one large Ice Cube, however, neat is equally as enjoyable, however, has a little bite at the start.
