Henry McKenna 10 Year Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted June 7, 2022This is my kind of bourbon. Classic, balanced, good on the nose with a finish that lingers. I’ll savor this bottle slowly on special occasions.75.0 USD per Bottle
Old Elk (The Mad Scientist)
Wheat Whiskey — USATasted June 6, 2022The wheat comes through along with the classic bourbon caramel notes. It’s well balanced and the finish lingers. I’ll enjoy this bottle but I’m not much of a wheated fan and probably won’t come back.75.0 USD per Bottle
Port Askaig 110 Proof
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted January 27, 2022Peaty Scotch sample. I’m a novice to the powers of peat. Gonna be honest, smells like a bandaid on the nose. But it opens up more enjoyably on the pallet which warms all the way down and ends up pretty enjoyable.
GlenAllachie 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted January 26, 2022Enjoyed this sample. Didn’t knock my socks off but an enjoyable single malt. Balanced, with floral notes and a pleasant mouthfeel.
Macallan 12 Year Sherry Oak Cask
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasted January 25, 2022This is a solid Scotch. Good on the nose, nice mouthfeel, and a pleasant finish.70.0 USD per Bottle
Stronachie 10 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasted January 25, 2022Sample. Nothing really special in this for me. It’s fine and I wouldn’t turn away another pour but won’t be buying it.
Kilbrin 10 year single malt irish whiskey
Single Malt — Ireland, IrelandTasted January 13, 2022I like this just fine. I wouldn’t call it special, I wouldn’t call it trash. It tastes like a blend between a typical Irish whiskey and Scotch. It’s got that triple distilled smoothness with just a hint of smoke. I’ll happily sip on it if gifted to me as this was but probably won’t go out of my way to buy it.
Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve (Total Wine & More)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted January 10, 2022New to barrel proof. Took me a few pours to get the ratio of water to taste. But once I did I enjoyed the heck out this bottle. Such good flavor. Really really good.
Widow Jane 10 Year Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — USATasted November 20, 2021Had my eye on this for awhile. This was a sample. It has a nice nose, some citrus hints along with the usuals. It’s a dry bourbon, and quality. The finish is nice. Left me wishing I had more.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 18, 2021Probably overhyped but a solid bourbon. Classic on the nose, good flavor with depth, just enough heat. Very well balanced.39.0 USD per Bottle
