Green Spot Single Pot Still
Single Pot Still — IrelandTasted August 10, 2022Musty rich smell. Complex and aged. Smells fantastic. Flavor is mellow at first, then develops into a dark, aged blend of wood and subtle sweetness. Tastes metaphorically like an old mahogany desk. My favorite Irish whiskey, which says something, because I don't typically like those.
Compass Box Spice Tree
Blended Malt — ScotlandTasted August 10, 2022Heavy grassy aroma. Green and floral. Complex flavors, grassy and sweet, but with much more kick than Irish. Spice with the tail burn, medium rich, I like the layers of flavor. Wood, sweetness, spice. Well done.
Blended — ScotlandTasted August 10, 2022Dark toffee aroma, molasses. Lighter flavor though. Sweet, caramel, some light peachy fruit. Medium body. Vanilla sweetness is good but a little overpowering. More sour on the tail.
Black Bull Kyloe (Duncan Taylor)
Blended — ScotlandTasted August 10, 2022Rich and fiery, high proof. Aroma is cereals. Mostly young oak on the tongue, good amount of bite. Rich, but lacking in flavor.
Heaven's Door Double Barrel Whiskey
Other Whiskey — Tennessee, USATasted August 5, 2022Powerful bourbon aroma, smells high proof and deep. Rich flavor, pretty spicy along with your standard bourbon fare. More cinnamon than pepper, good body and excellent balance. Well done, cinnamon commands a touch too much attention.
Bourbon — Washington, USATasted August 5, 2022Light toffee aroma, faint. Initial hit is a little sour, like green apple. Slowly evolves into a more fiery Carmel like you'd expect, a bit of a journey.Stack 571 Burger and Whiskey Bar - Kirkland
Koval Single Barrel Oat
Other Whiskey — Illinois, USATasted August 5, 2022Definite oat aroma, mixed with syrupy sweet. Heavy caramel flavors, super sweet and rich. There's an herbal tail that's interesting and bright, contrasts the sweetness well. Overall falls flat for me though.Stack 571 Burger and Whiskey Bar - Kirkland
Double Mountain Hopped Whiskey
Flavored Whiskey — Oregon, USATasted August 5, 2022Aroma is super hoppy as you'd expect, lots of pine tree. Flavor is just as sharp as the aroma, acetone, pine needles, hops, and green. Tastes super artificial, and much closer to bad aquavit than whiskey. I kinda hate it. Original at least.Stack 571 Burger & Whiskey Bar - Bothell
George Dickel No. 12
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATasted July 24, 2022Dark caramel, tobacco, some fruit. Fiery, but with enough richness to cut it. Love the power, competes with 101 at the price point for me, they give me the same vibe.
Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 23, 2022Some oak and spice, underlying vanilla sweetness. Groundwork is all there, would do well with richness to carry everything. Burn comes in a little strong. A little above average and great for the price.
