Sagamore Spirits 6yr Single Barrel Rye r/Bourbon Select
Rye — Maryland, USA, USAReviewed August 20, 2022This brand (Sagamore Rye) is one of my favorite Rye's. The barrel strength is one of my favorite bottles and among the most underrated bottles on the market. This is good. It's the baby brother of that item. Great flavor, classic Sagamore. Just the body and finish are toned down. Walk to buy this. Run to buy the barrel strength.
Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 20, 2022I actually drink more ECBP than this expression. Had an opportunity to sit and enjoy this Small Batch version and I was really delighted. I'd say a classic mid-90's proof Bourbon. Lots of caramel with a great deal of fruit notes. A touch sweet, but a couple drops of water helps with some increase spice. Almost a cracker note on the finish. More depth and intrigue vs Woodford or Maker's. I really did enjoy
Heaven Hill Bourbon Experience 8 Year Barrel Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 13, 2022This was a beautiful Bourbon and one I'm blessed to have enjoyed. Bottles no longer available.. Or else I'd have one. Great depth & complexity. 129 proof that brings depth and changes in the glass as you make your way through.
Very Old St. Nick Estate 8 Year Reserve
Bourbon — Bardstown, Kentucky , USAReviewed August 13, 2022I've toyed with buying this bottle several times. Frankly, glad I didn't. My experience at Preservation is two fold. Their lower proof items are watery and uninspired. The full proof items are worth a visit. Here I get coconut, vanilla, mint & black pepper. But overall, watery with a finish that was lacking. Especially for an 8 year Rye. We've all over watered our glass once or twice and there is no going back. Well, that's this whole bottle.
Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond 7 Year
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 13, 2022Vanilla & caramel dominate with good spice on the palate. More toasty after the water is added. Easy drinking and a bottle I'm pleased to have added to the collection
Old Bardstown Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky , USAReviewed August 13, 2022Was not my jam. Not interesting in the front and falls off the table at the end. Some caramel, vanilla & Willett spice, but not much complexity.
Old Bardstown Estate Bourbon 101 Proof
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 13, 2022Seemed a bit hot for the proof. Quite spicy, even for a Willett product. Lots of cinnamon & clove I enjoy high proof, but this seems a touch out of balance for me.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 11, 2022Fairly sweet with the typical Willett funky flavor. There isn't much finish here. I'll stick with Noah's Mill for my liking
Johnny Drum Private Stock Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 11, 2022Sweet vanilla & caramel. Up front nice, but falls off the table with no finish to speak of.
Pure Kentucky XO
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 11, 2022Medicinal & Hot. Not too much appealing here
