  1. Crown Royal Deluxe

    Canadian — Manitoba, Canada

    Tasted April 13, 2018
    3.0
    3.0 out of 5 stars
    Nose: It's sweet and smooth straight off the bat. There is vanilla and coconut and the longer I smell it, toasted marshmallow comes to the front. Taste: Like the Canadians who made her, she's friendly. Vanilla, honey, and graham crackers predominate with some lemongrass making a subtle appearance. The finish is smooth though not very exciting. Opinion: For those who aren't a fan of drinking whiskey neat, the classic Crown&Coke is a great option here. However, this whisky is so smooth and friendly it can easily be drank neat even by the novice. This is great beginner whisky and also one that experienced drinkers can come to for a smooth not complicated dram. Cheers!

  2. Jameson Irish Whiskey

    Nose: The nose has buttery biscuit and corn up front, with nuanced honey and straw notes close behind. Taste: I got tasty cereal grains, honey, citrus fruits and the "zing" that accompany them. Opinion: This was my first Irish Whiskey (said everyone ever) and I'm proud of it. There is nothing wrong with Jameson and as a mixer or sipping neat it's dependable and tasty! Cheers!

    Nose: The nose starts with corn notes and a sweet smell at first with a hint of exhaust then after a little while fades to nothing. Taste: On the pallet there is no complexity: there's a bourbon-like sweetness and slightly oaky, with maybe a slight note of berries, but that quickly vanishes. In its place however is left a growing unpleasant / bitter mouthfeel at the back of the throat. Opinion: It's not as bad as I was expecting. I'm glad I tried it, but won't be a go to except for perhaps a cheap mixer whisky. Cheers!

    Nose: On the nose is sugary candy and Hot Tamales. Taste: The taste is very cinnamony (Which I guess is what they were going for.) spicy and clingy. Opinion: I'd only buy it as a mixer personally. As well as neat, I had some in a cinnamon toast shot, and it wasn't bad. Cheers!

    Nose: The nose greets you as very friendly and sweet. Taste: The palate is also sweet with a smoothness that was very appreciated as this was actually my first whisky experience. Opinion: I really liked this whisky. It was smooth, no burn, and great paired with smoking a pipe on your porch with a friend. Cheers!

  6. Rieger's Kansas City Whiskey

    Other Whiskey — Indiana (bottled in Missouri), USA

    Tasted March 15, 2018
    4.0
    4.0 out of 5 stars
    Nose: The nose is sweet and fruity with grapes and prunes, probably from the oloroso wine that's been added. It's very unique, in a great way, much like the city in which she's made and after which she's named. Taste: It is a strong and bold taste that is sweet and fruity matching the nose, yet has the oaky notes that I love in a whiskey. Opinion: it's a beautiful whiskey. J. Rieger & Co. are doing great things at their distillery and their innovation and creativity are to be admired! I would buy it again and try anything else they make. Cheers!
