Penelope Toasted Barrel Strength Single Barrel: OHLQ 1st Edition Toasted 6
Bourbon — USAReviewed July 13, 2023Penelope does it again with this silky and nicely balanced pour. A new permanent in my collection.
Smoke Wagon Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Nevada), USAReviewed July 13, 2023Gotta love it when high rye gets expressed as "smooth" but they did well with that. The rye flavor comes in without the punch and cinnamon and the result is a solid, creamy whiskey that's a respectable proof and a good overall sipper. A good cigar whiskey, too.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 13, 2023 (edited August 8, 2023)Think Noahs Mill but lighter, smoother, and with less punch, but also less complexity. Now one of my top bourbans but Noahs Mill is still a touch higher on my list. This will be a go to when i want something a little lighter and smoother, though. Well done.Texas Capitol
Lindores, The Casks of Lindores, STR Wine Barrique
Single Malt — ScotlandReviewed July 13, 2023Wow, much better than i expected. If you're expecting a typical Scotch its a 3.8. If you love when distillers do a different take on a Scotch its a 4.8. A new staple in my collection.Texas Capitol
Evan Williams White Label Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 26, 2023Great value for the money. Light on the nose, Like smelling silly putty from about six inches. Caramel and vanilla and baking spices dominate the palate. Nothing really stands out but there is nothing wrong with this at all, especially for the price. This will always be a staple in my collection.
Nine Banded Wheated Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky (bottled in Texas), USAReviewed May 23, 2023Sweet and light. Drinks more like a Scotch than a bourbon, but there are better Scotches and better bourbans in this price rang. Needs a few more years aging to make it onto my "buy again" list.
Still Austin The Musician Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Texas, USAReviewed May 23, 2023 (edited June 8, 2023)Good but for the price there's much better out there.
Smoke Wagon Uncut Unfiltered Bourbon
Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Nevada), USAReviewed May 21, 2023Salty caramel and buttery vanilla with toasted oak, embedded in a light rye cinnamon spiciness that fades into a long, oily creamy hickory-like smokiness. Sweet, but not cherry sweet or fruity. Perfect fit when I want a savory, salty bourbon rich in flavor.
Spirit of Texas Pfluger Single Malt Whiskey
American Single Malt — Texas, USAReviewed May 16, 2023One of my favorite American single malts. Sweet, light, but flavorful. Medium-short finish for most flavors except the grassy vanilla maple pineapple, which stays comfortably longer. A new staple in my collection.
Penelope Private Select Barrel Strength Bourbon (Junkies Pick)
Bourbon — USAReviewed May 14, 2023Wow, one of my favorites. Lots of flavor and complexity but a good balance of all. Not too much or too little of anything. When im in the mood for a lightly spicy whiskey with a full flavor but not all woody, this is my pour. For reference, Noah's Mill is a little more oaky, more full and complex, and a touch creamier, but simetimes is too full flavored for me. But it and this are similar and in my top Bourbons list.
