Barrell Craft Spirits Dovetail (122.9 Proof)
Blended American Whiskey — USATasted April 14, 2021Not usually a fan of finished bourbons, but this is really solid. It finishes HOT.
Bardstown Bourbon Co. Discovery Series #2
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 14, 2021I will be adding the next bottle I see in store of this series to my collection. Fantastic pour I waited too long to try
Collabor&tion Straight Bourbon Finished in Muscat Mistelle Barrels

Benchmark Full Proof Bourbon (125 Proof)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 9, 2021This gets a 4 for the value to taste alone. Reminds me of a high proof Willett with remote notes of EHT. Finishes pretty hot, but a little flat. But this is comparing it to the bottles that are orders of magnitude more expensive with the same mash. If you see it, pick it up just to try this one. Glad Buffalo Trace is doing something interesting.18.99 USD per Bottle
Benchmark Bonded Bourbon (100 Proof)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 9, 2021For the price, this is a solid BiB. The nose is what you would expect from benchmark. The flavor is a bit more interesting. Since this is BiB, it has the same mash and age as EHT. This is what sparked my interest. Does it drink like EHT? No. Is it similar? Somewhat. The best part of this pour is the finish. Interested to do a side by side soon. Happy with this pickup18.0 USD per Bottle
Pure Kentucky XO
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 4, 2021To me this feels like a more refined Noah’s Mill. I can’t really decide which I like better. Side by side one day for sure
Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2021-01 "Donohoe's Batch"
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 4, 2021I love the Bookers line, and this was one of the best I have had thus far. I just had a sample when I was at a friends house. Going to hunt down a bottle and do a better review once I have it. These are going on secondary already for over $120. This bottle is worth $100 no doubt.
Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 20, 2021A particularly solid blantons pour with a little more pronounced orange note finish. If you are a blantons lover this needs a try
