    Every smell, every sip it gets better. Friendly but not simple. Classic Scotch, but in no way predictable Nose: pear and apple, honey, Christmas sugar cookie without the frosting, slight saltiness Taste: salty, corn flakes, honey, but spicy with a sparkly finish
  2. Old Forester Classic 86 Proof

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    This bottle is dirt cheap and SO good for the price. It’s kicky and springy and characterful at $16 Nose: oak first, but not overwhelming, caramel and honey with a hint of orange and cinnamon. Taste: cinnamon banana muffin. It’s not thin and not strong, but it punches above its weight for sure. Finish: not long, but very friendly with a little spice

    Other Whiskey — Kentucky, USA

    Woodford is classy. It’s just really well made. This is like visiting someone’s home you know well, but they’ve done some redecorating. Nose: Oak first, then pudding - maybe banana pudding, cherry coke as well Taste: Honey, milk chocolate, spice and pepper, little minty Beautiful with a short, oak spice finish

    This thing is ridiculous. If I were camping, this is the only thing in the world I’d want. I think that’s because it’s kinda like trail mix. Nose: granola. Like one of the Quaker chocolate chip granola bars. Little bit of cinnamon, but mainly sweet, oatey, touch of chocolate Taste: honey. Gentle. Like it wants to be my best friend. It’s just so kind with the slightest little bite. Gorgeous

    I love this. It’s becoming familiar. I can smell it in my memory before I smell it. I think, “Wait a minute, this is my s’more whisky” and then it is! Wow. Nose: graham cracker and marshmallow, vanilla and chocolate, hint of citrus Taste: honey, creamy, cereal, the lightest, slightest little spice bite. It’s just alluring from beginning to end. It’s nearly perfect for a non-fussy, non-dramatic, but lovely drink. My goodness!

    I had completely forgotten how complex and rewarding this pour is. So good. Nose: Starts with the campfire smoke. (Someone grab a guitar and start singing Tom Petty) Then there’s a salty meat thing, but it’s not bacon. I think it’s the ham you get on pizza. Then citrus and sweetness emerges - orange peel and banana bread Taste: This is where you find the malt. Cereal, sweet, honey. It’s creamy Finish is peppery and long

    I’m a little sick, so my nose is not working well, but this was still a banger. Need to come back to it when I’m healthy Nose: plum and red apple, vanilla cookie Taste: savory - like, salty, tea, ginger, citrus
