John AP Conoley Bourbon
Bourbon — Newport, North Carolina, USAReviewed August 20, 2023On the nose it has a buttery caramel smell that is quite pleasant. On the palate it has a very harsh burn not sure if it is cinnamon, baking spice, or rye but it is extremely overpowering. When you add a little splash of water the profile on the palate changes completely and becomes sweet and vanillay with only a slight hint of spice at the very end.25.0 USD per Bottle
Frying Pan Shoals bourbon
Bourbon — North Carolina , USAReviewed August 20, 2023On the nose it has a heavy peanut scent with a slight medicinal undertone to it. On the palate it has a leathery, oaky, smokey profile that finishes with a sharp spice note that fades really quick. None of the flavor profile on the nose transfers over to the palate but the flavor profile on the palate is much better than the nose. It is a little thin mouthfeel wise. All in all a really nice pour in my opinion.45.0 USD per Bottle
New Southern Revival Jimmy Red Bourbon Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks
Bourbon — South Carolina, USAReviewed August 14, 2023On the nose you get subtle notes of dried berries, honey, and florals but they are very weak. One the palate the same notes are there but still very subtle and nothing really stands out. It does have a very oil mouth feel that coats your tastebuds but it may mask the flavors try to come through. I was very disappointed in this flavor profile as i have had bourbons done in a similar way that the flavor profiles explode on your palate this one just had no pop.
New Southern Revival Single Barrel Jimmy Red Corn Straight Bourbon (Seelbach's)
Bourbon — South Carolina, USAReviewed August 14, 2023On the nose it comes off very nutty, either peanuts or cashews. On the plate you still get some of the nuttiness but dulled down with the addition of some honey. It finishes really smooth with a very subtle baking spice or rye spice note. The only knock again is it carries a steep selling price
Jimmy Red Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon — Charleston, SC, USAReviewed August 14, 2023On the nose i could not really pick up any defined scents, on the plate it was very heavy on the baking spice and had a burn that lasted a while. For the price point ($90 a bottle) I have had much more complex and better tasting bourbons at half the price.
Other Whiskey — Multiple CountriesReviewed June 19, 2023 (edited July 4, 2023)On the nose it is sweet and vibrant; heavy floral and berry notes are present and roll into a smooth woody finish. On the front of the plate it has a heavy strawberry or raspberry flavor with some floral notes under; that gives way to an oaky leather flavor and that spice note is present at the end
New Riff Kentucky Straight Bourbon Bottled In Bond
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 19, 2023On the nose it seems light; I do pick up a medicinal note, and a hint of a floral note and it finishes with rye spice. On the plate that medicinal note is front and center overpowering anything else except the rye spice that it rolls right into. There is another flavor, maybe the floral note or vanilla, trying to fight through the strong medicinal taste. Still not a bad pour but lacks some complexity.
Basil Hayden Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 4, 2023On the nose it comes off very sweet with a strong fruity or floral scent almost like honeysuckle or peaches and not much spice. On the palate the fruit and floral note are much more subdued and give way to a much woodier oaky taste that finishes with a light rye spice note. It is a very delicious pour that is very complex.
Maker's Mark Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 4, 2023On the nose there is a very light aroma of a floral scent that is followed by spice or cinnamon but they are very light. On the palate there is still the light floral note but it is now accompanied by a more subtle note of honey or maple syrup which is followed by that cinnamon spice note which is now much more pronounced.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 29, 2023On the nose it has a heavy presence of baking spice and cinnamon with a light himt of fruit. On the palate it has a heavy caramel apple taste that finishes with a good cinnamon flavor.
