  1. Early Times Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon

    This reminded me a lot of Evan Williams Bottled-in-Bond White Label, which I enjoy. There is a lot of sweet vanilla and caramel on the nose and palate, but the finish is short and just "okay". Worth buying a bottle if it's released in your area.

    Mine is the 2015 bottling. Of the sherried scotches I've had, this is the best by far. The flavors are rich and full, and the nose is incredible. Highly recommended.

    The nose and palate remind me of a young bourbon but with a lot of strong oak flavor. There's a bit of cherry and more oak on the finish. After drinking Redbreast 12, I realized this one is simiilar on the nose and palate. They are both labelled as "Pot Distilled", which might be part of it.

    Intense vegetal notes on the nose and palate. Classic agave, olives, pimentos, and cucumber. Lingering, slightly salty finish. Wonderful!

    There's a lot of vanilla on the nose, and tangy, spicy/sweet oakiness. On the palate, more vanilla and an almost cola-like character. The finish is a bit short, but does leave the vanilla behind for a while. Overall, very enjoyable.

    Very fruity on the nose, with a nice essence of grapes. On the palate, it's a bit spicy and fruity, reminding me of a very good grappa.

    I really enjoyed this one. It's unusual, with some chemical notes on the nose and palate, but it complements the sweetness and fresh flavors.

    A bit of sherry influence on the nose. Fruit and sweetness. On the palate, a bit of peat, more sweetness. The finish is salty and has some bite. And the peat is there again. It reminds me a lot of the Clynelish 14, which I enjoy as well.

    A very nice brandy. Fruity and unique when compared to a grappa or grape-based aqua vitae.

    Very similar to a dram of the now-discontinued Mortlach 16 Flora & Fauna I tried the day before. Both have a big sherry nose, though the Mortlach seems to have a longer, richer finish.
