Booker's Bourbon Batch 2019-02 "Shiny Barrel Batch"
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedOutstanding!!! Incredible balance of oak, leather, brown sugar and baking spices. Literally explodes and coats your palate with all of its goodness...Spice hits you at the front and mid while the sweetness then provides a wonderfully long finish. One of my favorite Booker’s offerings in a long time. Best enjoyed neat..Cheers!
Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2019-03 “Country Ham”
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedPhenomenal yet slightly different offering from Booker’s. Very smooth, easy drinking, brown sugar and cinnamon bomb! Some usual oak and a bit of tobacco as well with a medium long finish. Neat (IMO) is the perfect way to sip this terrific bourbon. Cheers!
Foursquare 2004 Single Blended Rum
Aged Rum — BarbadosTastedAs a full fledged Whiskey/Bourbon drinker for more than 30years, this Rum is truly a masterpiece. Rich, viscous and not overly sweet. Balanced notes of vanilla, molasses, spice and oak on the nose. On the palate it’s cocoa, spice, oak, and caramel. Finish is long and warming but not overpowering. Fantastic pour and should be enjoyed neat (IMO) I enjoy all my whiskey at high and or cask strength so this is right up my alley. Cheers!
New Riff Kentucky Straight Rye Bottled In Bond
Rye — Kentucky , USATastedA truly well done and enjoyable Rye. Nose and palate deliver rich spice, vanilla, oak and caramel. None overpower each other, all in balance with a viscous mouthfeel and medium long finish. Cheers!
Chattanooga Whiskey Cask 111
Bourbon — Tennessee, USATastedFantastic whiskey produced by this distillery...Already have a back up bottle on hand. Nose is intense with sweet spices, charred barrel, leather and tobacco. On the palate, much of the same as on the nose but with a smooth, mouth coating, long finish. Ridiculously smooth for cask strength and truly a spirit to be savored. Cheers!
Papa's Pilar Marquesas Blend Rum
Aged Rum — Multiple CountriesTastedWow! The perfect marriage of rum and bourbon...Buttery sweet, spicy and oak. Need to find another bottle of this very well done Rum. As a traditional and almost exclusive Bourbon drinker for 30 years, this spirit is fantastic! Cheers to the Papa’s Team on a job well done.
Papa's Pilar Bourbon Barrel Finished Dark Rum 95 Proof
Dark Rum — Multiple CountriesTastedNot a usual Rum drinker as Bourbon has been my spirit of choice for more than 30 years. However, this rum is OUTSTANDING! Perfect balance of sweetness, spice and oaky goodness. Very satisfying mouth feel with a medium, long finish. Delicious in all aspects! Cheers
George T. Stagg Bourbon (Fall 2017)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedAn incredibly rich, powerful, balanced and oh so good whiskey! The nose is amazing with sweet, woody, spicy notes. On the palate it’s a cavalcade of spice, oak, tobacco and leather up front and then coats your palate with sweet vanilla and toffee. The finish is eternal! Truly a whiskey to be savored neat although with one big rock it still remains bold just sweeter. Amazingly smooth with its high proof. Cheers!
Hudson baby bourbon single barrel
Bourbon — New York , USATastedPicked up a store pick single barrel bottle yesterday. I find it to be better than the “regular” Baby Bourbon. Lots of CORN on the nose upon pouring then opens up to sweet, salty caramel, oaky notes. On the palate it is thin but all aforementioned notes discernible. Finish is somewhat short and dry...Easy drinking, neat sipper.
Wild Turkey Master's Keep Cornerstone Rye
Rye — Kentucky, USATastedHappy that I finally found and purchased a bottle of this exquisite whiskey, and at MSRP. Phenomenal nose of bold baking spices, vanilla, pepper, oak and of course rye. On the palate, the above mentioned explodes in your mouth. All notes are in balance and in rich, viscous harmony with an incredibly long finish. This is a fantastic whiskey to be enjoyed and savored everyday. After all, we should celebrate each day. Cheers!
