  1. Weller Full Proof Bourbon

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    4.5 out of 5 stars
    Nose: burnt caramel. Heavy fruit. Some oak on the nose as well. Palate: at first very similar to OWA 107. But then a berry explosion happens in the middle. So much sweetness. Definitely drinks at 114 proof but the fruitiness shines through. Finish: oaky and caramel. Overall: like a very tame WLW. Really solid and glad it’s an annual release

    Nose: a lot of cereal notes. Much like a scotch. Not as fruit forward as Yamazaki or hakushu 12 years, but there is slight pear. Palate: a lot of pear and cereal up front with a tiny tiny smokiness coming through the middle to end. Finish: smoky with the pear fading out. Overall: fairly impressed. I wouldn’t sip this daily or need a back up but I do like this and it holds its own against the hakushu 12 & Yamazaki 12.

    Nose: popcorn and graham crackers. Kind of similar nose to Thomas h handy honestly. Creamy too. Palate: very creamy and earthy. Not too strong and not much bite being a rye. Super smooth. Very oily on the second sip and more flavors come out. That popcorn showed on the second sip. Finish: really really amazing finish. Lingering spice that literally lasts as long as a GTS finish. Really shocked at how good this rye is. Paid $160 and I could probably do it again. Definitely on par with Thomas H Handy too btw.

    Nose: apples. A lot of apples. Maybe some apricot. Nice velvet vanilla nose too Palate: more apples. Such a smooth mouthfeel. Like butter. Much smoother than the regular small batch. Reminds me a lotttt of Booker’s batch 2015-06 but not as full of flavor. Very unique as well. Could probably pick out in a blind. Finish: long caramel and vanilla. Very complex

    Sweet and spicy. Nothing complex about it. Get an orange and vanilla note to it. Would probably be great on an old fashioned.

    Nose: very unique nose. Lots of cherry with some baking spices. Palate: very full palate. Some rye spice shines through quickly and then vanishes. It was a very short bite and explosion then disappears kind of like a firework. Finish: spices and a bit of cherry left over. Short/medium finish.

  7. Knob Creek 15 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    Tasted

    4.25 out of 5 stars
    Nose: the nose is amazing. I’m a sucker for knob creek anyway, but still. Very oaky and caramel forward. Some cherries on the end Palate: lots of oak and caramel up front. Rich but light at the same time. I can see the store picks flavor within this but I think this lacks the punch. Finish: heavy vanilla finish and a pretty long one too As long as knob creek store picks, especially the older ones, are available I don’t think I’d buy another one of these for $100. But if those store picks go away I might buy some backups.

    First it’s 53.5% not 53% Nose: nice balance of caramel and vanilla. Has a creamy vanilla tone to it. Cherries a little bit. Little to no spice Palate: rich, honey. Spice is there. Honestly taste a bit of age, not sure what the estimated age is if anyone has guessed. Kinda reminds me of woodenville a little. Palate: creamy and soft butterscotch.

    Nose: vanilla and a bit of mint. Cherries lying underneath. Butterfinger note to it. Palate: cherries and vanilla. Kind of thin but a very very nice touch to it. I love it! Finish: vanilla and a bit of pepper. Medium length. This one is 113.6 proof and drinks like 90 proof. Very impressive.
