Bowmore 18 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted September 23, 2022Such a smooth Islay. Different baking spices and bits of stone fruits up front. The mid palate presents a salty herbal brine; finishing the sip with loads of smoked fish. Lovely whisky!
Crown Royal Peach Flavored Whisky
Flavored Whiskey — CanadaTasted September 21, 2022Peach tea all day long!!!
Old Elk Straight Wheat Whiskey
Wheat Whiskey — Colorado, USATasted September 16, 2022This is a wheater is full of sweetness. An extreme desert whiskey. Very rich and full with loads of cane sugar, clove, cinnamon, and a touch of nutmeg. The finish is very grain forward reminding me a lot of Frosted Flakes. The whiskey finally lingers with a bit of spicy ginger.
Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2021-03 "Bardstown Batch"
Bourbon — Kentucky , USATasted September 16, 2022Loads of fruit!! Strawberries, blackberries, and honey crisp apples are on the front/mid-palate! Tobacco and peanuts (with the shell on) are present on the finish with a touch of an astringent burn! I personally enjoy the Booker’s line.
Bourbon — (aged further & bottled in California), USATasted August 5, 2022A very light whiskey up front and on the palate. I get a lot of burnt oak char. Some leather and fresh spearmint. Not a ton going on here.
Maker's Mark 101
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted August 4, 2022The nose was great, but the taste was very dry and rather astringent. Just wasn’t interacting with my palate well!! *Willing to try this again later.
High West Rendezvous Rye
Rye — (bottled in) Utah, USATasted July 14, 2022A lot going on with this! I get some blackberries upfront. The mid palate reminds me of a slice of coffee cake with loads of spices. The finish has a hint of minty and malty characteristics! The entire tasting is complex and could go in many different directions.
