Russell's Reserve Single Rickhouse Camp Nelson C
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 5, 2022Nose: caramel, oak, vanilla, chocolate, roasted peanuts, pencil shavings, red berries, orange Body: medium to big, nice slowly building Kentucky hug. Palate: sweetness hits me first. Citrusy. Some caramel and smoke if I really try hard to pull out more flavor. A little spiciness Finish: medium and more caramel spiciness. Note: neat from a glen cairn. It’s light, fruity. A little nutty. I think the nose is really interesting but the palate falls a bit short for me. The citrusy notes are nice. The finish is longish and sweet but it feels like it’s missing some body, some darker notes are not there for me. I was expecting blow the doors off and I got a measured door opening. Good not great.
Larceny Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch C922
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 4, 2022Nose: caramel, cinnamon, cherry cola, barrel spice. Later a nutty flavor wafted out like wall nut. Body: medium to large with a medium Kentucky hug. Palate: sweet and spicy. Caramel and barrel spice Finish: medium caramel and smoke. Note: very curious about this after the breaking bourbon review. My first bottle was good but not great. The review basically called this the pinnacle of LBP. This is drank neat in a glencairn. Take home. This is pretty big, sweat and smoky caramel with barrel or cinnamon spice. It’s nice but not blow my socks off amazing.
Wild Turkey 12 Year Old Distiller's Reserve 101
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 3, 2022Nose: cherry coke, cinnamon, caramel and oak. Vanilla. Later dark fruit/blackberry. Body: medium Palate: cherry coke, cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, and dark fruit. Finish: really long. No Kentucky hug. Delicious barrel smoke Note: got many ounces of this from don just because he’s a nice guy. So pumped to try this. This is drank nest from a glencairn. This is really an exceptional dram. In the range of Boone county 13 year. Exceptional in that all the flavors come in waves and while the palate matches the nose each sip and nose doesn’t match exactly. The length is great.

Pingree has impressed me with this and the 15 year, so good.
Murray Hill Club Blended Bourbon
Bourbon — (blended & bottled in Washington D.C.), USAReviewed October 20, 2022Batch 48 bottle 73 Nose: herbaceous with light caramel and vanilla. After the first sip more woodiness emerged on the nose. Later noses bring out oak and honey. Body: light to medium more on the light side Palate: first sip was subdued. It’s a very light and ephemeral dram. Light vanilla, light caramel, a little peppery spiciness. A little long lasting Kentucky hug. If you let the whiskey linger on the tongue and pull some air across it more oakiness emerges. Finish: medium Note: bought from 1010, open and tried during MEA weekend in Plymouth wisconsin on vacation. This is ok to good. It’s not earth shattering but it’s a nice bourbon whiskey with a basic bourbon backbone but not a lot of punch.
George Dickel 15 Year Tennessee Single Barrel
Tennessee — Tennessee, USAReviewed October 18, 2022Nose: caramel, orange starburst, vanilla and barrel smoke, delicious nose. Later a little woodiness like sawdust. Body: light and thin Palate: flavors exploded on the palate with sweetness, green apple, caramel, smoky chocolate Finish: long and smokey, caramel and orange starburst. The length of finish is surprising given the body. Note: this is a really tasty whiskey. A little confusing in that it’s light and thin but full of flavor. I would say no Kentucky or in this case Tennessee hug. Very easy to drink and has nice flavor. The palate follows the nose. The finish is long and smokey how I like it.
Mayor Pingree 7 year cask strength
Bourbon — ?, USAReviewed October 14, 2022Nose: caramel, oak barrel, malt. After a Qtr of an ounce it’s mostly oak on the nose. Body: medium Palate: sweet oak, cinnamon, little back palate vanilla. Finish: nice, medium length Note: this is going to be tough. I’ve got about half an ounce to taste from don after his pick tasting. Let’s see how it goes. What I could suck out of that 1/2 ounce was good
