Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 14, 2023 (edited November 10, 2023)Nose: cinnamon, bitter oak, graham crackers, vanilla, and ethanol. Palate: very delicate and sweet with notes of honey, baking spice, and oak. Got some good bite that an older aged bourbon normally would. If you could bottle liquid snickerdoodle cookies, that would be what this bottle is. Delicious.75.0 USD per BottleJAX Fine Wine & Spirits
Widow Jane Decadence-Batch 38 (2023)
Bourbon — USAReviewed September 30, 2023 (edited November 10, 2023)Nose: very sweet with notes of a sweet oak, maple, chocolate fudge, and molasses. Palate: soooo smooth; notes of oak, spice, and chocolate, followed by a long and sweet maple syrup finish. Normally with some bourbons, a long finish entails progessing flavor notes; this, however, is just a lingering essence of maple syrup and oak. Delicious and quite decadent as the name would imply. I was honestly expecting something like Penelope Rio since this is a finished bourbon. However, Penelope Rio is delicious yet almost overpowering in it’s honey flavor….I said almost. This Decadence is not that way, it’s more of a naturally sweet bourbon that has distinct notes of maple syrup…but maple syrup isn’t the only prominent note. A good comparison, in my opinion, would be a Woodford Double Oaked or an Eagle Rare finished in maple syrup barrels. Great pour. ￼124.99 USD per Bottle
Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed September 21, 2023 (edited November 10, 2023)Nose: light oak, citrus, honey, herbs, very fresh smelling. Palate: coats the mouth very well, I get notes of oak, caramel, rye spice, honey, and some sort of unique sweetness that I can’t quite pin point, this is delicious. I can’t wait to try it again in a couple weeks, I’m sure this will get much sweeter.

Bourbon — USAReviewed August 26, 2023 (edited October 14, 2023)Nose: vanilla, coffee, caramel, light ethanol. Palate: butterscotchy, with notes of coffee grounds, chocolate, leather, and oak. Delicious bottle, can’t wait to taste in again in a week or so and give a more in depth review.
Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky , USAReviewed August 20, 2023 (edited November 10, 2023)Nose: sweet corn, light caramel, light honey suckle flower. Palate: sweet corniness, with notes of caramel, vanilla, and oak. Not super complex. I don’t normally enjoy the more corn flavor forward bourbons, but the sweet adds a very nice balance to this. I can see now why this is the first bourbon I ever enjoyed.
Smoke Wagon Uncut Unfiltered Batch 168A
Bourbon — Las Vegas, USAReviewed August 10, 2023 (edited November 10, 2023)Nose: super sweet butterscotch with notes of smoke, leather, brown sugar, vanilla, and honey suckle. Beautiful nose, this would make an amazing candle. Palate: so smooth and oily. Coats the mouth very well and leaves a creamy mouthfeel afterwards. I get HEAVY notes of butterscotch candy, leather, oak, smoke, and maybe some creamy vanilla. This is another bottle that is just the spitting image of my ideal palate. So delicious, I need another bottle of this batch. It’s going to suck when people discover how good this stuff is and it turns into a $200 bottle.
1792 Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 3, 2023 (edited November 10, 2023)Nose: pepper, salt, woody. Palate: tastes like a cheap bourbon. I love a lot of low dollar bourbons but this just tastes cheaply made. Vanilla, cherry, and wood. Not much there. Super short finish. Booty.
