Michter's US*1 Single Barrel Straight Rye
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted February 4, 2021Neat, this whiskey has significant barrel char notes and sweetish fruit notes. In cocktails, the barrel char is minimized while the fruit notes shine through. If only drinking it neat 2/5 stars, but in cocktails, 3.75/5.
Octomore 07.3/169 Islay Barley
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted February 4, 2021Reminds me of smoked ribs and grilled chicken with a little pepper. The higher ABV allows the full effect of the phenols in this whisky. Tastes less peaty than Ardbeg but more than Laphroaig. Great Islay if you can find it.
