Elijah Craig 18 Year
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 1, 2022I haven’t had this for a while; it was pricey and got it at a Virginia ABC store. On the nose Oak and Blackberry, especially the Blackberry. You get a little bit of red apple on the nose but I didn’t get that until my 3-4 sniff. After a few sips I picked up some strawberries and cream on the nose. The palate is OK, lots of oak and dark fruits. It just falls off so fast because of the lack of proof. You get some cherry on the second sip and some red apple. My only complaint on this is the proof. I wish they had bottled this at 105-110 and it might be my favorite bottle.
Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed October 26, 2022It is my favorite Scotch (I am a bourbon guy). It is sweet, fruity, lite compared to bourbon. Smells of green grapes and green apple. On the palate little smoke and fruity.
Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandReviewed October 6, 2022A pleasant and sweet Irish Whiskey, not my jam every day but once a month as a change in flavor.
Bardstown Bourbon Co. Discovery Series #7
Blended — (bottled in) Kentucky, Multiple CountriesReviewed October 5, 2022This remains my favorite bottle, excepting Bardstown Triple Staves. The sweet notes are everywhere and it is smooth as can get. It is great, that is why I have had three bottles.
Calumet Farm 16 Year Single Rack Black Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 5, 2022I opened this two months ago and simply loved it. Had some again today and felt the 15 year was actually a bit better. Regardless, both are fantastic.
Calumet Farm 15 Year Single Rack Black Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 5, 2022Opened this two months ago and had some again today. It’s fantastic, I also had a small pour from the Cal 16 and over time the 15 may be a bit better.
Starlight Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey finished in VDN Barrels - KCBC Pick
Bourbon — Clark County, IN, USAReviewed October 4, 2022Not sure why the rating 4+. It is good but not amazing. The Starlight Rye is far better but I wanted to try this one.
1792 Full Proof Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 3, 2022Best 1792 I’ve had. Way better flavors than the low proof. The nose is full of caramel, butterscotch and oak. The palate is rich flavors of oak and caramel.
1792 Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 3, 2022Yum! Way better than regular 1792! Much bolder flavors.
