Old Mcbrayer bottled in bond
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 20, 2021Ghill already noted the source + many details. Overall pleasant sipper. Nose needs some air to open up. Fairly smooth, with lots of caramel and butterscotch. No taste surprises. The longer I sit here and sip while considering this pour, the more I am enjoying it. Not a long finish, but that is when I notice some oak and cake spice. I like it.
Calumet Farm 15 Year Single Rack Black Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 9, 2021Nose is all sweet pancakes and syrup. You’ll notice a bit of heat from the 105 proof on your first taste, followed by a wide flood of warm, buttery pancakes and a tad of banana bread that lingers on for a nice long time. Really pleasant experience.
Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 3, 2021To me, B520 is about as good as it gets! Tried a C batch that I didn’t like at all, but B520, for those that enjoy higher proofs, has everything you want in bourbon: great nose, mouth feel, long finish, and such depth of flavor.
WH. McBrayer Bourbon Whiskey Small Batch Barrel Strength
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 3, 2021103 octane = a bit of heat up front. Brown sugar, caramel, tobacco, leather and a little vanilla and nut in the overtones. Fairly long finish where you get more tobacco and leather. Very pleasant overall and does not taste like a young bourbon = More complex than expected. Amazing first release. Second release should be around December.
Boone County Wheated Bourbon Single Barrel 7 year
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted September 8, 2020Super oily and busting with flavor: very smooth for such a high proof. Nose is caramel and butterscotch. Spice is the first flavor noticed.

Weller Full Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted August 24, 2020This is my favorite Weller pour to date. The hotter proof wasn’t that noticeable as the rich notes of vanilla, spices, and caramel coated my mouth and delighted my tastebuds with the most pleasant combination of taste. The finish was extra long and pleasant.
Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky
Canadian — CanadaTasted April 26, 2020Really smooth with lots of vanilla and carmel flavor notes. Sweet = yes. Little burn, as expected at just 80 proof. Finish is fairly quick. Great choice for someone new to bourbon because it is so enjoyable but not complex. First experience was a pleasant one.
Knob Creek Cask Strength Straight Rye

George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon — Indiana, USATasted December 10, 2018"Very surprising, as it is much more complex than I expected. You certainly notice the rye, but beyond that there is a wonderful combo of different flavors. Not hot, but there is multiple spice notes while also having a sweet edge. Was he the ‘king of the bootleggers’? I don’t know, but this MGP product is very pleasant to sip and enjoy all night long. "
