Ancient Age (80 Proof)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 24, 2022For the money, this actually isn’t bad. Definitely a young, grain-forward flavor profile. But if you like Jim Beam White or Evan Black give this a try. The flavor is comparable and you might even save a few bucks.
Rye — Indiana (bottled in Kentucky), USAReviewed February 21, 2022I’m generally not much of a rye person but I’m enjoying this one. Fairly dry with the typical herbal notes. Probably a great introduction to rye for people who are new to the category.
Macallan Double Cask 12 Year
Single Malt — Highland, ScotlandReviewed January 16, 2022A great basic introduction to sherry cask matured scotch
Thomas S. Moore Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Finished Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed January 13, 2022Rich and well-aged with notes of spice, brown sugar, cherries, and oak. I knock it down just a little because I’m not quite sure it warrants a $70 price tag
Maker's Mark 101
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 14, 2021 (edited January 14, 2022)Nice rich notes of Carmel, wood spices, roasted nuts and milk chocolate on the palate. Not overly complex but definitely richer than regular Maker’s.
Russell's Reserve 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 26, 2021Nice sweetness with some citrus, oak and baking spices. Good value for money.
Jim Beam Original
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 16, 2021Sweet corn with a touch of oak spice. A little boring as a sipper but not flawed in any way. Definitely goes well with ginger ale or bitters.
Old Forester 100 Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 16, 2021Main tasting notes are butterscotch, rye spice, and a hint of chocolate. A little water or a cube brings out some cherry and leather notes. A little dry for my tastes, but a solid choice in the price range.
Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 2012
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 4, 2021Not bad for $29
Evan Williams Black Label
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed February 11, 2021I purchased many higher end bottles of bourbon before I bought a single bottle of Evan Williams Black. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how much flavor it offered for such a low price.
