  1. Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky

    Canadian — Canada

    Tasted

    3.25 out of 5 stars
    Ok let's be honest. I bought this for the cool caribou topper! Nose is heavy on the alchohol side. Almost offputting to be honest. Taste is better than expected given the nose. Flavor is very subtle and smooth. Malty cinnamon with a hint of candied nuts. Overall a decent sip, but not something I would scour the stores to find.

    Happened to luck upon this bottle one evening on a Blanton hunt. Obviously this ran me more, but was a great score. Starts with a candied citrus nose that begs you to take a sip. Very smooth taste of honey and vanilla with sinter brown sugar thrown in. This gives way to a smooth cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Trying not too like this too much due to its scarcity, but not succeeding. This is really nice stuff.

    There are only 7500 ratings on this so I am sure everyone is dying to hear mine! So without additional fanfare: Nose is sweet. Candy and vanilla. Taste is pretty wonderful. Smooth with vanilla and honey almonds. A medium lasting cinnamon burn chases away the day's worries. Overall I like it. Took me a little while to finally track it down, but IMO it lives up to the hype provided you don't have to overpay for it.

    First time trying this as I hadn't managed to find a bottle. Had to pay $50 for it, but figured that wasn't too bad based on three hype. Nose starts off fresh baked bread to me. Taste is incredibly smooth. Light cinnamon and nutmeg on the front with a soft rye finish. Low burn, but a lasting one. At $30 list this is 5 star, but since I had to pay almost double I am knocking it down half a point. Still it is fantastic stuff and I would definitely pay $50 to $60 based on other similar Ryes out there. Hype confirmed!

  5. Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon

    Let's start with WOW. Nose just smells delicious. A little brown sugar maybe, but not sweet. First sip is a flavor explosion. You expect a significant burn from the barrel proof, but this is damn near perfect. Heavy brown sugar and vanilla with a hint of nuttiness. Cinnamon burn is strong, but smooth and not over powering. Biggest problem with this one is that my wife loves it more and I may find an empty bottle on the shelf.

  6. Buffalo Trace Bourbon

    Picked up a single barrel select of this one. Have generally stayed away from the sub $30 whiskeys since they tend to be too alcohol forward for me. Nose is sweet like bananas foster. Brown sugar sweetness comes through immediately with a mild finish. Almost no burn here. At the price point this is really smooth and I can see why it has a strong following.

    Butter scotch candy on the nose. Overall a rather light flavor here. Rum casking has given the whiskey a nice soft and sweet edge. I have generally been mixed on Irish Whiskey and this one comes out on the positive side. Especially nice at the price point.

    This really nice stuff! If you were blind tasting you might not even call this out as a rum. Nose is slightly sweet with the sherry finish. Taste is smooth butter and caramel with a very slight burn to close. This one and Penny Blue may make me drink more rum!

    Frankly I don't love wheat whiskeys. This one has a subtle sweet nose to it. The flavor brings thoughts of honey graham crackers with a spiced anise close. The finish is slightly sweet with a short mild burn.
  10. Belle Meade Bourbon Sherry Cask Finish

    Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Tennessee), USA

    Another solid choice from Belle Meade. A hint of brown sugar aroma. Taste starts smooth and mild, but evolves to a brown sugar sweetness with a bite. Taste dark chocolate cherry on the finish.
