  1. Eagle Rare 10 Year Bourbon

    I know there are huge Eagle fans out there, I am just not one of them. This is a nice sipper with a sweet introduction that takes a marked ethanol burn before calming down for a sweet finish. Ok for the price, but not too the hype the brand has built.

    Full disclosure is that I truly enjoy Port and Scotch is not my first choice. I don't find much port finish to this to be honest. The Scotch smoke is there along with some leather notes. Finish is more sharp alcohol heavy than the slow burn I prefer.

    Wow. This is special. An amazing blend of brown sugar sweetness on the front with a slow burn to remind you it has chops at 104 proof. If you find this rarity buy it immediately. I promise you will thank me later!

    Recognize first that this is a young distillery and their in house barrels are just that. This is extremely corn forward which is not a bad thing and brings some lovely sweetness. However, the youth brings with it a heavy alcohol burn. Better to enjoy over rocks, but I am excited to see how these age over time and if they keep that intense sweet corn flavor.

    This is an interesting Rye. An initial rush of sweetness morphs into a more traditional Rye pepperness. Overall a nice sipper, but not on par with the best in industry.
  6. Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky

    Single Grain — Japan

    Very smooth and easy drinker with light sweetness. This is one that gets a little better after a few sips when the flavors of cinnamon and vanilla start to come through, but overall a bit of a let down on the hype of Japanese whisky.
  7. Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Chocolate Malted Rye Bourbon

    The cocoa finish is what makes this special. Almost like taking a small spoon of cocoa powder and letting it dissolve in your mouth. Definitely more typical Woodford rye with a light spiciness. Not sure it is worth $150 a bottle, but it is definitely a nice sipper.

    Brotherhood of the Barrel Selection. Very smooth and sweet. Brown sugar sweetness with a smooth burn. Very light pepper for a rye.

    A splendid rye blend with almost no alchohol burn. Excellent for someone toeing the rye waters. Spicey, but not overpowering as some ryes can be.

    This is a very special sipper. The slightest burn, but warm flavors of rye wrapped with the sherry sweetness.
