  1. Henry McKenna 10 Year Bottled in Bond Bourbon

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    Single barrel, so obviously each barrel will have a unique profile. I got a great bottling. Nose is sweet with the traditional bourbon notes of rich caramel and some vanilla and the oak is definitely present. Tastes older than 10 years. Palate is solid, coats well and the theme continues. This has a great long sweet tooth finish. Caramel bomb, but a hint of vanilla and at the very end I get cotton candy. The 100 proof also brings some spice as well. Solid pour, especially at retail (under $35). Because of the price, this is easily a 8.4/10.

    Nose reminds me of my Dad’s shoe polish and my high school old library with some dark dried figgy fruit. I could spend all night smelling this pour. Great mouthfeel, full body with a little heat. The figgy taste follows through to the finish that has a nice linger that revisits the nose. 8.1/10

    I get a ton of peanut brittle in this. Decent finish and good mouth-feel. Not much else though. 6.9/10

    Well, this is aged 22mo. This was rated highly by Jim Murray, but really this is just a young whiskey with grain-to-glass being the reason for the price. It tastes young, but does have depth that I wouldn’t expect for 22 months in the barrel. Corn is prevelant throughout. The finish does bring the most depth with some light fruit and sweetness like vanilla. But for close to $50, there are just way better options out there. 5.7/10

    Very smooth, as expected with a wheated bourbon. Definite caramel apple on the nose with light oak as well. The palate is smooth but actually has some light spice in there, which is surprising for a mashbill without rye. It’s a decent finish that balances with the nose nicely, same flavor profiles. Value-wise, I’m not sure if it’s worth the ~$60 tag, but you could do worse in that range too. 7.5/10

  6. Pinhook Bourbon County

    I LOVE the finish on this. Peach is definitely the theme but the finish brings me back to little league baseball and chewing Bazooka Joe bubblegum. The nose definitely is sweet, fresh peachy fruit and light vanilla. The youth does show as its apparently aged 3yrs, so you taste the corn. Spice definitely kicks in the palate and again it shows it’s relatively young age. But the finish is so unique. It lingers forever!! You get the sweet peach, peppery heat, and some light new oak. But it costs your mouth so well that you lick your lips and have some bubblegum taste. One of a kind here for a 3yr old bourbon! 8.2/10!

    Slight singe on the nose, but not overpowering as expected for a “young” 114 Proof bourbon. The high rye mashbill is present throughout but enough sweet/flavor profile on the nose through the finish to make this a fine sipper or a great mixer. This is fantastic in manhattans or old fashioneds. 6.8/10

    With just a splash of water or a small ice chip, this opens up to be one of my favorites. Coates the mouth well and has great complexity. This absolutely belongs in the same category as Old Forester’s Birthday Bourbon from 2018. A great value at under $65. 8.7/10

    The nose on this is amazing for how young I think it is. Could spend all evening with my nose in the glass. Sweet notes of toffee, brown sugar, mocha are very consistent throughout with a touch of heat on the finish. This is a very, very good pour for $40. This beats Henry McKenna BiB any day of the week. Complex, smooth, easy sipper. 8.9/10 - highly recommended!!

    Incredibly smooth and has a great transition from nose to palate to finish. Nose gives off a nice toasty oak with sweet caramel and vanilla. It’s very light in the mouth with a great balance of the sweet and toasty oak. The finish gives just enough spice to give a warm linger without losing its smoothness. This is a great pour. 8.9/10
