Eagle Rare 10 Year Single Barrel
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedSmooth nose of golden butterscotch hard candy and real maple syrup. Velvety mouthfeel, full and rich and prominent mouth tingle but no negative burn, like the droplet of a freshly plucked honeysuckle flower or fresh squeezed sweet sugar cane. An unexpected minty and herbal aftertaste. Complex and easy to sip. Very, very good!!!7.0 USD per Shot
Tennessee — Tennessee , USATastedNose of those plastic glue bubbles from a small toothpaste tube that you blow up on the end of a little red straw and Isopropyl alcohol. The nose is so sparse that I think I can smell my ice cubes over it. Mouthfeel of a glycerin suppository. Palate is sterile and astringent. Vanilla and an oaken dryness slip in briefly, but quickly vaporizes into nothingness. Better mix this one with some soda and turn up the country music a little louder.
Stolen Whiskey Aged 11 Years
Other Whiskey — Florida, USATastedIve been waiting to see this whiskey added. One of my absolute favorites! Exceptional for the price point. Sweet, smooth, and smoky. More details to come when I drink it next...
Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedSmells like when you’re a kid and take an accidental coke hit of that pink powder from a cherry pixie stick or a like freshly unwrapped cherry cough drop. Tastes of the liquor from a dark chocolate covered maraschino cherry twisted with the flames off a charred oak stave. A perfect burn that takes a backseat to the imagination of how to creatively describe the white pepper finish. This is excellent!!!
Elijah Craig Small Batch
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNose of bitter red apple peel and fresh out of the box tennis shoes, flash of sugar cube sweetness on the lips, red popsicle on the tip of your tongue, with a hot but thin finish. Shines like a cubic zirconia on a MILF in a red dress.
Maker's Mark Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNot much to add to the already spot on expert reviews. The baking spices aftertaste without the burn is pleasant.
Hudson Baby Bourbon
Bourbon — New York, USATastedTASTE #1: (neat) Dang it, I was really pulling for that typical sweet corn nose, but all I got was wet cardboard box, sawdust, and airplane glue. Tastes like dirty dishwater thats mellowed in the sink all night, with a flash bang burn, that left me with the taste of an unleavened bread communion wafer and the feeling like I might have bad breath... TASTE #2: (a week later...over ice) Trying to be positive...nose of new Michelin tires mixed with pressure treated lumber like I just walked in the contractors door of the Home Depot. Taste: honestly the first thing that came to mind was a swig of the water from an unaerated minnow bucket that’s been sitting out all day. Reply with your address and I’ll mail the rest of this bottle to ya...
Angel's Envy Bourbon Finished in Port Wine Barrels
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedClose your eyes and you’ll swear you were sniffing red wine, with hints of cherry cough drop, and gold butterscotch candy. Silky smooth mouthfeel is followed with a tease of sweet “oh yeah!” but it finishes fast with a thin oaken dryness. In the words of Rick James “She’s a very tricky girl...”
Wild Turkey Longbranch
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedSimple nose of fresh baked sugar cookies and overly ripe bananas. Begins with shortbread and leather, then modulates into campfire smoke in the distance. Aftertaste of a chewed up aspirin in the best sense. Alright...Alright...40.0 USD per Bottle
Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNose of burnt brown sugar, vanilla bean, cinnamon stick, and old wood from Mamaw’s attic. Smooth full mouth feel with similar flavors but adds root beer, cherries, peppery finish. Love this one. Punches like Mike Tyson after snorting speed.
