  1. Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Finish

    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.
  4. Belle Meade Bourbon Sherry Cask Finish

    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.

    This one smells amazing of strong vanilla notes. Initial taste is so smooth you almost question the cask strength, but it quickly warms. Honey, almond, and vanilla on the front with a strong cinnamon finish. I will definitely be trying more of the Belle Meade library following this.

  6. Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon

    Tasted side by side with the small batch. The single barrel is much smoother upfront despite the higher proof. Sweet on the nose and first taste brings cinnamon and vanilla. Finish builds to a long and slow cinnamon burn. Excellent for the end of a long day.

  7. Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon

    Decided to give this a try after the 2019 Whiskey Advocate annual ranks came out (I realize the select is the one in the top rankings, but I haven't found that one in stores yet). Tried side by side with the Four Single which I quite enjoy. The nose is sweet on this one. First taste is surprisingly spicy. Almost to the point it robs the dram of its potential. Once it mellows the corn starts to come through in a strong way followed by a red hot candy finish. Overall a nice pour for the price point, but I'd pay the little extra for the single barrel in my opinion.

  8. Angel's Envy Bourbon Finished in Port Wine Barrels

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    This is one of my preferred regular sippers. You immediately sense the port inspiration on the nose. The taste is a softly rounded sweetness of bourbon wrapped in a port blanket. The sip closes with a smooth burn begging for another taste.

  9. Knappogue Castle 12 Year Bourbon Cask Matured

    Single Malt — Ireland

    A bit of light nuttiness in the aroma on this Irish Whiskey. Tastes of subtle butter and almonds. Very light and short burn followed by an almost mint like refreshing finish.

    I have had a bit of a hard time getting into French Brandies. For me they have been better suited to cocktail making than sipping at an evening's end. This one has almost nothing on the nose. The overall flavor is very timid and light. There is something buttery about the finish with an amost nutty taste. Purchased this bottle on a recommendation, but will probably use it more for mixology than solo dram.
