Basil Hayden Red Wine Cask Finish
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed March 24, 2023Strong red wine influence.
Basil Hayden Toast
Bourbon — USAReviewed March 24, 2023Extremely smooth and light almost to a fault. Nothing that jumps out as every taste comes across as slight hints of flavor.
Watershed Nocino Finished Bourbon
Bourbon — Ohio, USAReviewed February 4, 2023Christmas in a glass! If you like bourbon and nocino you will love the taste...the sum is far greater than the parts.
Two Georges High Corn Bourbon
Bourbon — USAReviewed July 22, 2022Strong corn notes on the nose. Semi-harsh okay taste that mellow over time. Pleasant finish that is reminiscent of corn nuts.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Mezcal Joven — Oaxaca, MexicoReviewed May 22, 2022Excellent mezcal. Nose hits you in the face with immediate notes of misquete and hickory smoke. Very smooth with some heat and anchovy taste. Finish lingers long after the last sip.
Compass Box Great King St Glasgow Blend
Peated Blend — ScotlandReviewed May 22, 2022Wonderful peaty nose but taste does not hold hold up to the nose. Slight maritime peat with hints of green apple on the finish.
Basil Hayden Subtle Smoke
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 22, 2022 (edited June 15, 2022)Immediate hickory nose with misquete elements. A definite step up from regular Basil Hayden. Taste has strong wood notes but not in a bad way. Finish is short but very pleasant.
Oban 18 Year
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed May 22, 2022Very subtle nose, not much smoke at all--not sure there is enough peat to consider use it as a descriptor. Very smooth. Goes down easy with the slight heat on finish. Some banana notes with butterscotch chip.
High Bank Whiskey War Barrel Proof
Blended American Whiskey — Ohio, USAReviewed May 21, 2022 (edited October 19, 2023)Nose is pleasant but hard to identify, somewhat green grain smell. High quality rye flavor but taste really blossoms with a few drops of water. Proof is surprising given overall smoothness. Almost a bubble gum flavor coming through. Finish is long and full.
Aerstone Land Cask 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — ScotlandReviewed May 21, 2022 (edited June 11, 2022)Nose is not pleasant, almost rotten bog smell... not as pleasant as traditional peated scotches. Almost damp boggy smell. Taste is decent for entry level scotch, but better as a mixer. Smooth and mildly peaty.
