Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTastedNot sure why, maybe it's the oxidation that does it, but this was the last dram of the bottle and, to me, the best dram. Everything smoothed out a bit. Almost like a few drops of water were added. I actually got a little more of all the notes. I love how this lovely liquid changed as I progressed through the bottle. This was money well spent. Regardless the whiskey, I learn something with each tipple.45.0 USD per BottleService Liquor Store
George Dickel No. 12
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATastedMuch more complex than JD. For 21$, no contest. Buttery caramel on the nose...Buttered and Caramel popcorn combo on the front... Baking spices, char on the finish....Sweet oak when you breath in with your mouth post-finish. Drink it neat.
Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye
Rye — Multiple CountriesTastedActually very good. Think of it as a spicier version of Knob Creek Smoked Maple. The rum blends with the vanilla and oak to create a maple syrup note, both in the nose and on the front of the tongue. The rye spice and the bitter barrel char balances the sweetness very well. Very good under 40$ bottle.
Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky
Canadian — CanadaTastedA Manhattan in a bottle. 2 oz of the beautiful liquid, 1 barspoon of maraschino cherry juice, 1 cherry, 1 ice cube. One very good cocktail. This is a very good bottle of whiskey for the price.
Legacy Blended Canadian Whisky
Blended — CanadaTastedMakes a decent Manhatten, but stick with .5 oz of sweet vermouth and one dash of bitters.
