  1. Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Barrel Proof

    Nose comes across as sweet with honey and caramel notes. First sip takes you back as it brings the full heat of a barrel proof offering. Tastes of vanilla fade away as a strong cinnamon burn takes center stage. Long burn to the sunset. Overall not nearly as special as the JD single barrel rye.

    Starting off the nose gives off hints of banana bread. The first sip brings more spice then you would expect from such a high corn mash. It almost drinks like a high rye blend. It definitely brings the heat at 107 Proof and is not a smooth drinker. Overall the flavors bring more nut bread and bran muffin to the table, but it is a bit of a rough ride due to the heavy burn.

    Found this overall a little off. Had some sweetness followed by a bit if burn, but overall could have used some more time aging to mellow it out and bring in some more flavors.
  4. Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky

    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!

    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.

    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.
