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.
Clyde May's Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Alabama, USATasted June 27, 2022Light caramel aroma. Some wood spice. Heaaaavy caramel sweetness, almost syrupy sweet. A little overpowering, a little bit of toffee tail. Medium body, richness works with the caramel, but too sweet for me.
Kirkland Kentucky Small Batch Bourbon by Barton 1792
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted June 20, 2022Lighter flavors, graham cracker and honey. Pretty standard Tennessee bourbon, above average but punching pretty well above it's weight for price.
Woodinville Bourbon Moscatel Cask Finish (2021 Harvest Release)
Bourbon — Washington, USATasted June 20, 2022Heavy caramel aroma, sweet and syrupy. Maybe some subtle wine tannins too. Caramel is there on the tongue, but with some grape and citrus blended in perfectly. Lemon is more noticable on the tail. Excellent balance, the proof and acidity might be a little intense together though. Tail comes off a little harsh, but still well done.Woodinville Whiskey Co.
