Ron del Barrilito Three Stars
Aged Rum — Puerto RicoTastedI had my sister bring me back a bottle from Puerto Rico. I had heard good things about it. This is not your typical spiced/flavored rum. It has an overwhelming flavor of something, but I can’t pinpoint exactly what. Maybe something like licorice? Whatever it is, it’s not what I was looking for.
Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond 6 Year
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedExcellent for the price. Not one of my favorites for drinking on the rocks. It’s got some burn to it. But it is an excellent mixer. It’s comparable to the best in the $25 range but at half the price.
Kraken Black Spiced Rum
Spiced Rum — Trinidad & TobagoTastedI was looking for a break from bourbon. This is excellent on the rocks!
Admiral Nelson's Spiced Rum
Spiced Rum — Multiple CountriesTastedLow end mixer. Nothing special at all.
Jack Daniel's Old No. 7
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATastedIt’s just okay. There are a lot of better choices in this price range.
TINCUP American Whiskey
Other Whiskey — Indiana (bottled in Colorado), USATastedDecent enough. Nothing exciting but it also didn't make me cringe.
Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedTried it for the first time last night. I thought it was really good. I wouldn't hesitate to order it again.
Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey 7 Year
Wheat Whiskey — Kentucky, USATastedI was so much looking forward to this one. I had determined that I like wheated bourbons over high rye bourbons. I thought "the more wheat the better". Well, maybe not. I really wanted to love this one, but I didn't. I just didn't care for it. I'll finish the bottle, but I won't return. There are several other that cost less that I like a whole lot more.
Walking Stick Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedFirst taste: Good, not great. I need to try it again. Not my favorite.
Weller Antique 107
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedIt's got some heat but I like it! Very nice.
