Fremont Mischief Whiskey
Other Whiskey — Washington, USAReviewed November 4, 2018Middle of the road, spicy tail. Nothing really jumps out, but there's minimal burn. Enjoyable, lighter than most ryes I've tried
Woodinville Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Washington, USAReviewed November 4, 2018All spice kick at the beginning, caramel after. Caramel tastes fake, but smells amazing. Lots of barrel burn, but not alcohol burn, the spice makes it pleasant. Pepper? Cinnamon? Smells like heaven.
Pendleton Original Canadian Whisky
Canadian — CanadaReviewed November 4, 2018Thin, but sweet and balanced with minimal burn. I taste caramel. A bit of barrel burn but the balance is really good.
Auchentoshan American Oak
Single Malt — Lowlands, ScotlandReviewed November 4, 2018Vanilla, oak, and with a hint of smoke. Wonderfully balanced, with all of the flavors mingling perfectly. Love it.
Maker's Mark Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed November 4, 2018Thinner than I prefer, mostly burn and spice. Pepper and cinnamon hits late, and continues through the tail. Pleasant in how it lingers, but ultimately unimpressive.
Evan Williams Black Label
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed November 4, 2018Flavors are prominent, richer than I'd expect for the price. I don't particularly care for whatever flavor it is though, oak I think. Too much bite on the tongue and the nose, and the flavors taste a little cheap or fake.
Glen Moray Elgin Classic Sherry Cask Finish
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed November 4, 2018Super light flavor, distinctive scotch taste but very sweet. Tail grows sweeter as it goes along, and has a woody sweet taste, I bet what Sherry tastes like. Doesn't taste fake or added at all, wonderful blend of flavors. Thin and light, needs no water. Minimal bite. Just short of 5 only because it's actually a little too sweet for me. Tastes like dessert.
Weller Antique 107 Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed November 4, 2018Tons of intensity and kick, burns, but it's a good burn. Spice and sweet mostly, sweet first, then spice. Once you add some water it balances wonderfully. Still some bite, but that's to be expected with the proof. Rich, thick, super long tail end. Fantastic.
Laphroaig 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed November 4, 2018Smokiest smoke smoke smokin. Kicks really hard, almost a little too hard. Doesn't need any water, little bit thin. Could do with a touch less smoke, otherwise magnificent.
Old Grand-Dad 114 Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed November 4, 2018Incredibly strong and aggressive, needs water. Light spice present in it somewhere, clove or something. Cinnamon? Needs to be a bit richer to balance the strength.
