Knob Creek 12 Year Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 9, 2021 (edited October 18, 2021)One of the better bourbons I’ve had. Super easy to drink with a bit of depth to it. Raisin, cherry, of course chocolate but there is a bit of caramel to finish it off.Gomer's Northland Fine Wines
Benriach The Smoky Twelve
Peated Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed August 9, 2021 (edited September 16, 2021)This has vaulted to the top of my favorite peated single malts. From the nose or taste you know there is smoke but it’s almost gentle and get fruit, vanilla, chocolate, and almonds. This and HP 12 are hard to beat for everyday drams.
Virginia Distillery Co. Courage & Conviction Prelude
American Single Malt — Virginia, USAReviewed August 9, 2021An American Single Malt that really reminds me of unpeated Scotch. This has a slight alcohol heat to start but the you get apples covered in vanilla and honey before figs, oak, and almonds finish it off.Hy-Vee

GlenDronach Original 12 Year

Craigellachie 13 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed July 30, 2021 (edited October 7, 2022)Glad I tried this one out. Will be in regular rotation. Floral with a bit of ripe banana on the nose. The flavor is thick apples, pears, and some leather.Gomer's Midtown
Ardbeg An Oa
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed July 27, 2021 (edited September 15, 2022)I hate giving all the Ardbeg I’ve had so far the same rating but each one has presented something that I love and I can’t pick one over the other at this point. This is the most approachable at first before the Islay peat hits you for a wonderful finish. You can’t go wrong with the 10, Wee Beastie, or An Oa.Gomer's Midtown
Lagavulin 9 Year (Game of Thrones-House Lannister)
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed July 27, 2021 (edited September 10, 2021)Definitely has a younger feel than the 16 but still incredibly balanced. The smoke is the first thing to hit both the nose and palate but the barrel starts to come out with toffee apples and a bit of cinnamon finishing with smoked fish.Gomer's Wine And Spirits
Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack
Tennessee Whiskey — Tennessee, USAReviewed July 26, 2021 (edited October 12, 2021)Not my favorite. A get a lot of alcohol and I’ve tried a few times to get past that.
Teeling Single Pot Still
Single Pot Still — IrelandReviewed July 26, 2021This is so interesting. Feels very smooth and the flavor is complex. Cinnamon apples start you off before it finishes almonds and toffee. Definitely going to keep this on hand.
