Korbel California Brandy
American Brandy — California, USATastedit's meh, definitely not aged long enough. light flavor, a little fruity in the beginning. not horrible for the price point but can definitely tell it's a leader quality whiskey ($12 for 750ml)
Jameson Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandTastedsmooth, but fails to deliver in the flavor department.
Crown Royal Bourbon Mash
Canadian — CanadaTastedhad a single drink, not too impressed. didn't have time to sit down and properly dissect this whiskey, but given my first impression I don't believe I'll give it a second chance.
Crown Royal Texas Mesquite
Flavored Whiskey — USATastedsmells like a bottle of BBQ sauce, but tastes more like mesquite wood chips than mesquite smoke, the finish is mighty bitter. I love BBQ but this bottle is a failure.
Crown Royal Salted Caramel
Flavored Whiskey — CanadaTastedstrong caramel (almost like a schnapps) with a little whiskey on the nose. the same is true for the taste; smooth, sugary (not as strong as schnapps) with a subtle whiskey finish. CR really does make some of the best flavored whiskeys on the market. would definitely rate lower if comparing to a something non-flavored, but for flavored not too bad25.0 USD per Bottle
Tomatin Cù Bòcan
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedthis scotch definitely needs to mature a bit more before making its way to the bottle. light smoke on the nose, not much flavor, with a campfire smoke finish and a nice long burn that leaves my mouth watering. too pricey for the quality.45.0 USD per Bottle
Rye — Indiana (bottled in Kentucky), USATastedNot bad, not very complex which makes it good for an everyday sipper. I can't find anything offensive about it, but can not find anything I especially like. this is about as average as you can get, which isn't a bad thing. . . almost a good thing
Don Julio Blanco Tequila
Tequila Blanco — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedI'm a whiskey and I wanted to see if I could get into tequila so I searched for a good quality dram. can't say I'm impressed but I just don't think tequila is my thing. although I will say it is smooth, very smooth. I have to rate it 2.5 stars based on personal preference, nothing wrong with it, just not a fan of tequila.
Paul Masson VS Grande Amber Brandy
American Brandy — USATastedsubtlety sweet and spicy. not too complicated, but enjoyable. I would rate it at 3.5 for taste alone but will give it a 4 because of the price, $12 for a 750 or $22 for a 1.75. this is a seriously underrated whiskey
Canadian — CanadaTasted2.5 stars. not good, but not bad either. this is a very bland whiskey. it starts if smooth, then that cheap whiskey flavor hits you very quick, and as quickly as that flavor hits it is gone and the Windsor finishes with a very mellow spice. I'm actually very surprised Windsor tastes as good as it does given how cheap it is.
