Stagg Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch 5
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNose = buttery, nougate-y, oaky Palate = oak, spice but some sweetness. Strong flavors Finish = more oak, long & strong I’m feeling the Jr!
Old Forester Classic 86 Proof
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNose = buttery, vanilla, oaky. Palate = smooth, light spice on the end, cherry. A pleasant experience - smooth and not overpowering.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNose = lots of leather, hard for me to pick up much else Palate = smooth, silky burn. Cinnamon, licorice.
Blanton's Original Single Barrel
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNose = Nougat, Vanilla & Honey. Simply delightful. Palate = Sweet, Vanilla, Caramel. No heavy finish at all. A really nice experience. Blantons has a lot of hype around it.. I wouldn’t say it’s life-changing but it’s a really good one!
Glen Elgin 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTastedYum. In an attempt to expand the whiskey footprint outside of the bourbon world, here we go: Nose = Fruity, Cereal, “Figgy” Spices Palate = Honey & Spice, slightly oaky on the finish.
Rough Stock Spring Wheat Montana Whiskey
Wheat Whiskey — Montana, USATastedNot our first knee jerk choice but Montana is near & dear to our hearts... so, here it is: Nose = maple syrup right off the bat, light & honey. Palate = light, soggy cereal right away. Dissipates to a little grain on the finish.
Maker's Mark Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedAnother one we’ve added to the “team” after moving away from whiskey ignorance. I wouldn’t sip this frequently but still deserves a spot on the shelf. Nose = definitely ethanol right off the bat but followed up with a welcomed sweetness (caramel, vanilla) Palate = oily/buttery feel with a vanilla, oaky flavor
Pure Kentucky XO
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedInteresting experience. An impulse buy Nose = toffee, caramel, maybe a fruit note in there Palate = very buttery/oily feel at the start, spicy cinnamon & mint flavors to follow. Heat heat!
Eagle Rare 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedYUM. Period. Nose = fruity gummies (yup!) Palate = vanilla, sweet followed by a spicy note on the finish. Pure enjoyment.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedA hidden, unknown gem for us! Nose = strong alcohol but arguably some caramel in there too Palate = weirdly enough, I get fruit (banana!), corn & a sweet butterscotch-y finish.
