Lagavulin 16 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedFor a peat-head, this is right in your wheelhouse.
Jim Beam Bonded Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedOn the nose the honey, baking spices, and Werther’s Originals. For me the pallet is all apple, charcoal, and tobacco with a very noticeable barrel bitter note at the end. The alcohol is definitely prevalent and presents with bold flavors.23.0 USD per Bottle
Sierra Norte Native Oaxacan Black Corn
Other Whiskey — Oaxaca, MexicoTastedYou can get a lot of tobacco, bitter dark chocolate, and hog feed corn cobs (worked on a farm and those corn cobs are on every corn whiskey I’ve had) on the nose. There is also almost like an apple cider vinegar note on the nose also which sounds weird but weirdly works. On the taste it’s all bitter dark chocolate, tobacco, and then a sweet (I think barrel) note. It is very rich and oily. It’s a funky journey and if you like outlier/weird whiskey.45.0 USD per Bottle
Teeling Distillery Exclusive Chestnut Finish
Single Malt — IrelandTastedThe nose jumps out of the glass with strong fig, dried apricots, dates, real maple syrup, and funny enough roasted chestnuts. Not a lot of the traditional Irish notes I was used too but could still place it as an Irish with the amount of rich butter. The taste gives you everything in the nose but the amazing butteriness, shortbread, cream, and little bit of spice that comes with Teeling. There are a couple flavors that are distinct but I still can’t place. Finish is long and unfolding more of the dark fruit and nutty notes.60.0 EUR per Bottle
