New Riff Kentucky Straight Bourbon Bottled In Bond
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 23, 2021To be honest, I was underwhelmed. I loved the presentation (the bottle is attractive in an ironically trying too hard kind of way), but the taste was just… nothing special.
MB Roland Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (Batch 52)
Bourbon — Kentucky , USATasted July 21, 2021Gives me a Heaven Hill-like vibe with the nuttiness and the darker cocoa-type of note. This bottle gets some bias points as well since it is “local” to me and since the first time I tried some, my wife and I were having a great evening. Kudos.
The Glenlivet 15 Year French Oak Reserve
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted July 8, 2021The oak comes through on the nose and the tannins hit the pallet. I prefer this over the 14-year cognac-finished Glenlivet offering, but honestly, I would rather have a pour of Glenfiddich 12 over both.
The Glenlivet 14 Year Cognac Cask Selection
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted July 8, 2021The cognac finish really comes through on the nose. Initially, the taste is smoky and the flavor dissipates pretty quickly. It’s a smooth, approachable drinker that can be appreciated by cognac enthusiasts.
Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 5, 2021Classic bourbon notes that coat the mouth well. My rating may be biased because it was the celebratory pour after my sister’s engagement with my brother-in-law and father, but it doesn’t matter. Still a great bourbon with a special significance now!

Bourbon — USATasted December 31, 2020Good lord, I love this Wheater. Special Reserve, but turned up in terms of flavors and proof.
