Blue Run Kentucky Straight Cask Strength Rye (2021 Holiday Edition)
Rye — USATasted December 24, 2021This comes in at a delightful 106 proof. The immediate when opened is apples and baking spices. A dessert in a bottle. I get notes of brown sugar, maple syrup, cherries, and everything great about the holidays. I really like what Blue Run has done with Rye Whiskey.
Blue Run Kentucky Straight Golden Rye
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted December 24, 2021Wow! Coming in at 95 proof this Rye is easy to drink. Wonderful sweetness followed by a lingering finish. This is not your dry run of the mill rye. This has a wonderful oak and maple syrup taste. Some hints of banana and cherries. A total different profile than cask strength rye.
High West American Prairie Barrel Select
Blended American Whiskey — Utah , USATasted July 6, 2021Finished in Vermouth. This bottle is really sweet. Initial smell immediately tells you vermouth. Followed by some oak and vanilla. This has all the markings of a sugar bomb. Pure desert on taste with all that sweetness and vanilla. It does finish with a long spicy taste left in your mouth. Oily and coats the tongue. Would be excellent if wasn’t so sweet.60.0 USD per Bottle
Weller 12 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 6, 2021Wonderful bourbon that is shamefully hard to get and then overpriced by wayward retailers. Nose is soft and hints of vanilla, oak, and of course brown sugar. Wonderfully sweet on the tongue and finish is mild but long. Notes of cinnamon and other spices complemented this bourbon nicely.42.0 USD per Bottle
MB Roland Single Barrel KY Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon — USATasted July 6, 2021Barrel A27.16 I bought this bottle from Bourbon Enthusiast group. I heard great things about MB Roland and that it compares to Dr Pepper. First, the nose is very distinct and somewhat earthy. There is oak and a hint of brown sugar on the nose. The taste is earthy and syrupy with definite caramel undertones. Finish is a little flat. Defined different than the standard bourbons out there. However, this left me a little disappointed.60.0 USD per Bottle
Redbreast 21 Year
Single Pot Still — IrelandTasted July 6, 2021This Irish is as good as it gets. A wonderful nose that is reminiscent of springtime fruits. The pour is light yellow with good legs. A mild sipping whiskey that tastes just like the smell of peaches/apricots. A perfect lingering of apricots but not overwhelming as in the 27 year. Definitely a favorite and priced ok when you can get a deal.220.0 USD per Bottle
