Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Chocolate Malted Rye Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 18, 2019The chocolate is not flavoring, which some have thought when I tell them about this, but happened as part of the distilling process. For me, I smell butter, wood, and some leather with mild sweetness on the nose, and the same on the taste. The finish is a very subtle cocoa nib / chocolate after the exhale, not super sweet and seems just right.149.0 USD per Bottle
Other Whiskey — Multiple CountriesTasted March 30, 2019Not a lot of heat on this one, but definitely sweet...almost like honey with a touch of pepper. Overall, this one is a bit light / thin, but has a pleasant taste. I love Metallica, but I was hoping for a little more with the Pickeral assistance...still a must have for any a Metallica / Bourbon fan.
Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Heritage Barrel (2018 Release)
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATasted February 25, 2019To start, admittedly, I have NEVER been a fan of JD until now...at least with this one. On the nose, it smells like something else completely; something better with more depth, leather, and charred oak. These scents transfer right on through to the taste. After some initial heat on the lips, a smoothness and full body settled in for some enjoyment. This is definitely not a thin, overly filtered and marketed whisky. Additionally, there is a touch of spice and maybe clove, perhaps. Overall, this was a surprising pour for me and one worth recommending...as a kid, I didn't like beets, but sometimes it's worth giving things a second chance. Cheers!100.0 USD per Bottle
Blaum Bros. OldFangled Knotter Bourbon 12 Year
Bourbon — Indiana, USATasted February 24, 2019For me, this one starts with a sweet, almost floral nose. The taste seems a bit thin at first, but settles in pretty quickly to give the right amount of heat with a mixture of fruitiness, wood, and a touch of spice, maybe a hint of clove. Overall, a good bourbon if you can find it for a fair price. Cheers 🥃
1792 Sweet Wheat
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 23, 2019Sweet is definitely in more than this bottle's namesake. From the onset, there's a nose that brings back a pleasant memory of Sweet Tarts or Jolly Ranchers. From there, while this bourbon is perhaps a bit thin, the candy continues with a taste. There's a little touch of heat on the back-end that lingers in a good way and the sweetness almost changes to a cherry flavored soda. Overall, it's a nice pour, which is probably much better if you're able to find it for retail pricing, as opposed to buying it on the secondary market. Enjoy, cheers!
Murray Hill Club special release
Bourbon — USATasted February 13, 2019While not inexpensive, it's still less than $100 if you can find it for retail and not on the secondary market. More importantly, this pour is nothing short of amazing with its strong caramel, vanilla notes and deceitful ABV, as it's very smooth without a lot of heat...highly recommend drinking neat...enjoy!!95.0 USD per Bottle
Joseph Magnus Straight Bourbon (Whiskey & Barrel Nite Private Barrel)
Bourbon — USATasted February 13, 2019A pleasant aroma and taste of nuttiness, almost like walnuts, with hints of chocolate and English toffee. A nice departure from the common vanilla, camel notes of most bourbons...really good stuff!!95.0 USD per Bottle
Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt
Blended Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted January 27, 2019This is one of my favorite scotch blends for the money, hands down. I keep it on-tap in a decanter for anyone stopping by who may like a drink, but is unable to appreciate others that are much more expensive / collectible. Plus, it was featured in a movie (Wolf of Wall Street, I believe), and the stories each one of our selections have is what makes them even more special.35.0 USD per Bottle
Usquaebach Old Rare Whisky Stone Flagon
Blended — Highlands , ScotlandTasted January 27, 2019Overall, this is a good blend without too much peat (not a big fan of when it seems to be overloaded) and the clay jug is pretty cool too have in your collection as well.190.0 USD per Bottle
Michter's US*1 Kentucky Straight Rye
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted January 27, 2019I have become a Michter's fan for its consistency in taste / flavor. From this bottle to the Toasted Bourbon to the 10 yr that I have, it's a great bourbon for a relatively easy to find, mainstay / daily drinker.
