Four Roses Small Batch Select Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 15, 2022Rich amber liquid and sweet fragrance greets you. I took a double on the rocks. The initial taste was a tad sweet and ended with a slight harsh aftertaste which kept my ratings below 4. I couldn’t quite make out the individual notes because of the sweetness. Not a bad drink but would go to others first.Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted September 13, 2022Nice light, sweet aroma and soft amber color welcomes you to this smooth bourbon. Notes of caramel and cherry hit the palate as the ‘bourbon kiss’ warms you inside. Nice char lingers without a harsh alcohol finish. Great over ice. Worth the taste.Gecko’s Grill & Pub
Basil Hayden Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted August 20, 2022Nice aroma with a subtle taste. The long aftertaste of alcohol prevents me from rating higher. I’ll drink this solo with a lot of ice.
Angel's Envy Private Selection Single Barrel Bourbon Finished In Port Wine Barrels (Binny’s, 2021)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted June 2, 2022Notes of warm vanilla and leather greet your palate. The nose hits with a sweet, vanilla aroma. The finish is a little harsh from the higher alcohol percentage but doesn’t detract from the nice flavors. All in all a nice bourbon.Gecko’s Grill & Pub
Redbreast 12 Year
Single Pot Still — IrelandTasted June 18, 2021Smooth start with a slight harsh finish. I usually stick to the 15 year but this is what they had, still worth the sip.McGrath's Irish Ale House
Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandTasted June 18, 2021I didn’t pick up much flavor from this whiskey but at least it didn’t have the harsh alcohol taste of cheap liquors. I’d buy this again but only if the selection was sparse.
Midleton Very Rare 2018
Blended — IrelandTasted June 18, 2021I was expecting a more smooth experience from start to finish but this has a very harsh experience at the beginning which led me to rate this lower.McGrath's Irish Ale House
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Special Barrel Release
Single Malt — IrelandTasted March 14, 2021You get an almost syrupy odor when you uncork this bottle. The initial taste is harsh before settling on flavors of caramel and vanilla. Too pricey for me given the taste.
Jameson The Blender's Dog
Blended — IrelandTasted July 24, 2020Beautiful color and aroma welcomes the drinker when the bottle is unsealed. I like my whisky over ice and this sample was outstanding in them at form. Initial flavorful and creamy taste was followed with vanilla and butterscotch. Definitely worth exploring further.
