Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 5, 2021A sentimental one for me, but in all honesty, it’s awesome. Tastes like EH Taylor Small Batch or Eagle Rare. For its msrp, it would be hard to beat.
Larceny Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch B521
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 4, 2021Indulgent and hearty. It’s a great supper to really relish.
Michter's US*1 Barrel Strength Rye
Rye — USATasted November 3, 2021Extremely rich, like candy that somehow turns to cream of corn. It’s think and interesting.
Lagavulin Offerman Edition 11 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted November 2, 2021This is one you have to leave on your tongue a bit, but if you do, you do get some of that chocolate and Guinness influence. I’m not sure a pleated scotch would have been my choice for this, because you have to really look through its assault to get those notes. With that being said, it does mellow quickly, and is a good pour overall.
Calumet Farm 15 Years Old
Bourbon — USATasted October 24, 2021Fruity and rich with tannic richness. Just an all around great bourbon. Get at Costco if you can, but I don’t think you’d be upset getting at $125. It’s good and it’s well-rounded.
New Riff Malted Rye Bottled in Bond
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted October 22, 2021A robust flavor. You can taste the malt (obviously), but the rye doesn’t get lost either. This is one that will add a pleasant variety to a collection of ryes, with its apple sweetness mixing with the rye earthy tones.
New Riff Balboa Rye
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 22, 2021Light and sweet, like eating a strawberry or an apple. Great citrus and mouthfeel. Very nice for a rye.
Bomberger’s Declaration 2021
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 20, 2021Awesome. Cherry and caramel is nearly electric through your sip. Strong flash of flavor. It’s a drink that is immediately interesting. Very impressive.
Knob Creek 12 Year Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 20, 2021A very strong example of a bourbon. Caramel, viscuous, flavorful. Great to have on the shelf for a solid pour.
High West A Midwinter Night's Dram Act 9
Rye — Utah, USATasted October 18, 2021This really is like a Christmas ale incarnate into a whiskey. Some light spices and a campfire presence. It really is just Christmas.
