    Light amber color. Nose has vanilla cream, dark cherries, cinnamon graham crackers and a touch of oak. Rich, oily mouthfeel. Palate is hot with notes of cinnamon sugar, cherry cola, and oak.

    Amber color. Fantastic nose with pipe tobacco, caramel, cinnamon, spearmint and leather. Creamy mouthfeel. Palate has lots of oak, charred cinnamon stick, oatmeal raisin cookies, and a hint of black pepper. Finish is long, hot and dry, with more oak, tobacco, cinnamon and allspice. This may not be the best ECBP ever, but it's damn good!

    Gordon's Private Barrel Barrel 0275 Rickhouse A Floor 4 Deep copper color. Nose has a lot of burnt caramel, Juicy Fruit chewing gum, cinnamon and browned butter. Mouthfeel is a little lighter than I would like, but not watery. Palate is hot and spicy with a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg, and a big up-front dose of oak tannins. It's quite grain-forward with very little sweetness driven by a little brown sugar toward the back end. Finish is medium-long, dry and oak-heavy.

    Copper color. Tasting this while I have a head cold so not getting a lot on the nose, mostly caramel, vanilla and more alcohol than I would expect from a whiskey of this proof. The palate is quite sweet and peppery, with burnt caramel, ripe bananas, molasses, and vanilla bean ice cream, and reminds me more of a good rum than a whiskey. The finish is long and peppery, with caramel, some oak char, and a light citrus note.

    Deep rust color with a pinkish hue. Enticing fruit-forward nose with notes of apple juice, grape soda, cherry pie filling, green pears, mulling spice blend and hints of cedar. Thick, full-bodied mouthfeel. Strong port influence on the palate, with dried apricots, dark cherries, golden raisins, honey, hints of cinnamon apple pie, and peppery rye spices kicking in at the back of the palate. Long, dry finish with more black pepper and rye spice, herbal grassy notes, grape soda and a touch of oak.

    Dark copper color. Nose has a lot of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, leather and oak. Mouthfeel is dry and fairly thin. Palate has more vanilla, cinnamon and oak, along with notes of tobacco, pecans, caramelized plums, orange zest and white pepper. Finish is medium-long and peppery with lots of oak, notes of brown sugar and cloves, and a bright herbaceous, almost bitter, note that makes me think of wood chips. It's not bad, but my personal preference is for the higher proof and bolder flavors of the Antique 107.

    Nose is fairly weak and earthy, with vegetal agave sweetness, light honey notes, and wet potting soil. Palate is better than the nose, earthy and peppery with some black pepper spiciness as well as green bell peppers and sweet red peppers, along with hints of waxy honeycomb and a very faint sweet note like candy apples. Finish is short with more of the vegetal sweetness of agave and red peppers, and a very faint smokiness.

Mouthfeel is rich and warm, a little dry. Not as sweet on the palate as the nose suggests, with dark cherries, cinnamon graham crackers, honeysuckle, walnuts, and a peppery spice with oak tannins on the back of the palate.

    Lots of fruit and floral elements on the nose, with charred pineapple, candied orange peels, honeysuckle and a touch of smoke. Very rich, slightly sweet and smokey on the palate, with some toasted marshmallows, orange zest, cocoa nibs, browned butter, and campfire smoke. Long, satisfying finish, with more campfire smoke and light buttery sweetness on the back end. An elegant and complex mezcal.

    Light copper color. Heavy sherry notes on the nose, fruit-forward with lots of raisins, apricots and marachino cherries, hints of vanilla and marzipan. Light, dry mouthfeel. The palate is dominated by the sherry notes, with more stone fruits, light honey and spicy oak on the back palate. The finish is a continuation of the palate and is over pretty quickly. Not a bad dram but not very complex or exciting.
