Old Forester 1910 Old Fine Whisky
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted April 3, 2020The nose is so clearly green bananas it’s humorous. Followed by a sweet vanilla pipe tobacco smoke. The palate initially is light, with praline, vanilla and a nuttiness along with some of that banana coming thru. Reminiscent to a bananas foster. I agree that the oakiness is a bit harsh and feels rushed due to the second aging process, making me crave a smoother finish. All around a good bourbon to be sip’t neat or in an old fashion (done right)

Tamdhu Batch Strength Batch 002
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted June 2, 2019Lithe nose is very rich with toffee, smoke and stone fruit. The palate is absolutely at its fullest without too much alcohol burn, despite its steep strength. Chocolate, smoke and toffee. I would love this whisky after a heavy meal and coffee in the evening as it’s warming quality is superb.
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasted June 2, 2019The wafts of hot cinnamon raisin bread coming from this dram takes me back to my childhood. Spread with freshly whipped butter atop of a fluffy piece of toast that my mother would prepare for me. Additionally, the dates and caramel sweetness makes this a truly nostalgic whisky.

Journeyman Distillery Corsets, Whips & Whiskey
Wheat Whiskey — Michigan, USATasted February 18, 2019Deep root spice, such as licorice and anise. Almost like a sarsaparilla soda. Lingering Vanilla notes thru the finish with a faint blackberry sweetness. Makes a great Sazerac!
Old Bardstown Estate Bottled Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 10, 2018A dream of toffee and vanilla graze the nose, which is followed by a pleasant amount of heat from the 50.5% abv on this whiskey. The first taste will have you dancing thru orange groves, followed by vanilla sweetness reminiscent of an orange creamsicle. The finish is baking spice, which I am fond of in bourbon. Would recommend in an Old Fashioned.30.0 USD per Bottle

Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted June 7, 201872% C 13% R 15% B This single barrel bourbon is most likely Heaven Hill juice that’s been aged in old Willett barrels from the late ‘70s.
