    Nose- Sweet with lemon and powdered sugar Body- The sweetness continues with a candy and tobacco sweetness and a hint of lemon tartness. Then you feel the heat of the 100 proof. Finish- Fairly simple. The tannins give way to a slight bitterness.

    Nose- Sweet smoke. Two sides of the spectrum mingle here as one balanced nose. Body- Smoke and sweet pit fruit. This then moves to a black pepper spice on the edges of your tongue. Finish- black pepper, smoke, and a light floral earthy pink linger with a medium to long finish. Notes- I have been hitting the bourbons hard lately but a few of my sipper bottles are getting some age on them so it’s time to finish them off. Tough life.
  8. Redemption Straight Bourbon

    Bourbon — Indiana, USA

    Nose- Lots of sweet vanilla and doughy bread notes. Body- This is a fairly simple pour but overall it is sweet and soft with vanilla, honeysuckle and sugar cookies. Finish- Vanilla continues giving way to a bit of mint. There is a bitter oakiness in the finish that takes away from the soft mid palate. While unremarkable. This is a nice bourbon all around. The relatively low Distiller ranking surprised me.

    Thesis Statement- (I’m going to start choosing one phrase to summarize a bourbon)- orange marmalade Nose- brown sugar and sweet tea with a hint of astringency Body- Sweet with cinnamon and black pepper give way to orange marmalade and a hint of ginger. Finish- The orange marmalade hangs there with some brown sugar as well. This thing is sweet! I really like this. It is an easy drink at 100 proof and has a strong citrus note. I’ll pick up some more next year when I visit God’s country.
  10. Copper Pony Rye Whiskey

    Rye — SC, USA

    Nose- Astrjngent with notes of syrupy sweetness like molasses. Body- Molasses and wet cardboard continue. Finish- Wet paper really comes out here. Note- This is a one trick pony (get it?), but it isn’t horrible. It’s mostly pleasant to drink and although really simple and flat, it’s okay for a rye aged for a “minimum or six months.”
