Wilderness Trail Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Wheated Bourbon, Single Barrel, Barrel Proof
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted June 2, 2022Great whiskey. My bottle is from Superfine Wine in Canton MI. Just over 5 years old. Really nice, well balanced, but drinks it’s high proof. If you’re okay with a hot whiskey, this is great. For me, maybe 1/10 times it comes out too hot until my palate adapts60.0 USD per BottleSuper fine Wine & Liquor
Chattanooga Whiskey Single Barrel Riverstone pick
Bourbon — Tennessee , USATasted February 25, 2022Very light nose, pleasant, but not as potent as I’d like. I get a bit of the malt on the nose and it’s just not my favorite aroma. Palate is very nice, it doesn’t taste as high malt as the other Chattanooga expressions I’ve had. This tastes much more like a traditional bourbon to me. Bright and fresh. Finish is medium long, flashes of caramel and stone fruit pop.
Chattanooga Whiskey Bottled in Bond Spring 2017
Bourbon — Tennessee, USATasted February 25, 2022The nose on this is a bit odd to me initally, after it sat a bit, I warmed up to it.The high malt comes through across the palate feel, very reminiscent of scotch. I get loads of chocolate, & a good level of rye spice. Finish is ultra short.
William Larue Weller Bourbon (Fall 2015)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 24, 2022Really nice. Tasted with a few other heavy hitters and this was the least favorite. It’s got a great wheat flavor late in the palate
Old Forester The 117 Series: Warehouse K Barrels
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 22, 2022Fabulous overall. I think the oak is a little heavy, the tannins seem to shorten the length of the palate a bit, but great whiskey.
Weller 12 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 21, 2022Not much nose or finish. Palate is subtle. Very easy drinker. Nothing offensive, but nothing that makes me want to come back either.
Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond 11 Year (Fall 2021)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 13, 2022A good wheated bourbon. The second Old Fitz I’ve had, I had this next to Maker’s 46 cask strength and found that more flavorful and enjoyable. This pour reminds me of the other Old Fitzgerald pours I’ve had. Nothing fancy, nothing jumps out as dominate flavors, just a well balanced, easy drinking whiskey.
Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond 8 Year (Spring 2021)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 13, 2022Just a well executed wheated bourbon, nothing that blows my mind. Well balanced and good flavors. I’ve had it twice now and had the same impression both times. most recently side by side with OWA. It was pretty similar to that, but a bit more earthy on the nose and palate. Good drinker, beautiful packaging.22.0 USD per Pour
Saint Cloud 7 year
Bourbon — USATasted February 12, 2022123.3 proof local pick. Ethanol on the nose, very faint hint of caramel. Palate is the same, not a lot going on. Soapy. Slight caramel. Finish is the same. Not much happening. Residual soap and a little caramel. This was a sample from a friend in a sample bottle, possible the soap flavor came from that, but I received other samples and no others had the soapy taste.
Russell's Reserve 13 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 11, 2022Not bad, but unremarkable. Not as good as store picks or Rare Breed. I think it’s too old and has lost some of the flavors that make WT products so great.65.0 USD per BottleSuper fine Wine & Liquor
