Kirkland Blended Canadian Whisky
Canadian — CanadaTasted April 12, 2021Artificial caramel and acetone, just like all other cheap Canadian stuff I've tried. Maybe some rye spice. Truly terrible.
Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 4, 2021Sweet woody aroma. Oak is of course going to dominate here but it smells amazing. Flavor is rich and oily, with the oak balanced with a lovely fruit. Maybe cherry or some sort of berry. Much better than I remember, the hefty body balances the bold flavor. Some spice on the tail.Cask & Trotter / Lynnwood
Chestnut Farms Bottled-in-Bond
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 21, 2021Aroma is wood and banana. Pretty sweet. Flavor is an excellent balance of the aroma, I taste both banana and oak. Good burn from the proof, a little on the thinner side. Good tail though, lingers for a bit. Banana isn't my favorite whiskey flavor but it's certainly unique and fairly rare.
Shieldaig Islay Single Malt 14 Year
Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted March 21, 2021Sweet smoky aroma, faint pear. Flavor is lighter than expected. The peat is on top of a light barley sweetness. It's pretty thin and light, like a more tame laphroaig. Almost no tail, disappears pretty quickly. Great balance though.
Westward American Single Malt
American Single Malt — Oregon, USATasted March 21, 2021Dark and complex aroma. Maybe chocolate? The flavor is dark and chocolatey, pretty rich. There might be wood buried in there too. The tail spreads, and finishes with coffee beans. Reminds me so much of chocolate covered espresso beans. Absolutely wonderful.Stack 571 Burger & Whiskey Bar - Bothell
McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt
Peated Single Malt — Oregon, USATasted March 21, 2021Light smoke aroma, smells like a blend of peat and char. Flavor is mostly light floral peat, a little bit of campfire comes in on the tail. Pretty rich and creamy, tail lingers a bit. More wood would have balanced it excellently.Stack 571 Burger & Whiskey Bar - Bothell
Scratch Edmonds Own Whiskey
Blended American Whiskey — USATasted March 21, 2021Super distinct aroma, sweet but in a way I can't place. Rich and syrupy flavor, the sweetness is a little herbal. Reminds me of benedictine. Benedictine and oak. Bit of a pleasant botanical bite on the tail, overall nice.Kelnero
Bainbridge Yama Whiskey
Single Grain — Washington, USATasted March 21, 2021Super light Aroma, smells like banana bread and waffle cone. Amazing flavor, the burn and the wood go well together. Lighter wood, tastes really high proof, but some of that bakery flavor in on the tail, which is longer than expected from the medium body. Clear and interesting flavors.Bainbridge Organic Distillers
Bainbridge Battle Point Organic Wheat Whiskey
Wheat Whiskey — Washington, USATasted March 21, 2021Aroma faintly of wheat spice. At first on the tongue pretty mellow, but then the tail slowly opens into a tingling spice that builds over the finish. Love the blossoming that happens on the tail , super cool. Oak flavor before the wheat.Bainbridge Organic Distillers
Bainbridge Battle Point Two Islands Hokkaido Mizunara Cask
Wheat Whiskey — Washington, USATasted March 21, 2021Deep complex aroma, subtle sweetness. Super aggressive flavor, blend of molasses and barrel burn, super oaky. Love how strong it is, has a bit of richness to balance the burn as well. One of those liquid fire whiskies, love it.Bainbridge Organic Distillers
