Rhetoric 24 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky (bottled in Tennessee), USATasted September 2, 2019Great bourbon with a ton of depth and flavor. I get a lot of cinnamon/red hot throughout! Vanilla notes that linger. Great heat. I Iove this bourbon and wish I could keep it stockpiled.
Green Spot Single Pot Still
Single Pot Still — IrelandTasted September 2, 2019Better with ice. It is very smooth, but I’m not much of a peat guy. More than what I would expect from a whiskey. A little woody and late warmth.
West Fork Whsky Co. Rye-Ter’s Block
Rye — Indianapolis, IN, USATasted August 19, 2019Late warmth, but otherwise very smooth. Lots of coffee flavor and some chocolate. Flavor is pretty subtle overall, especially upfront. This is the 3rd batch and I love the Indiana roots. High hopes for this rye.
Monkey 47 Dry Gin
Modern Gin — GermanyTasted August 19, 2019This is the best gin I’ve tried. Surprisingly warm. Very smooth. Floral up front with a sweet and long lasting finish.
Peerless Kentucky Straight Rye 3 Year
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted August 17, 2019Very warm up front. Lots of butterscotch and vanilla followed by smoke. A little sharp and a little bitter back of tongue after taste. Big fan.
