Knob Creek 25th Anniversary Single Barrel Reserve
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted$18 - 2 oz pour
Blood Oath Bourbon Pact No. 3
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted$99 This was a very well balanced bourbon. One out the best I've had, sweet, spicy and oak nose. Rich palate that's mellow and smooth with a nice finish as well. Definitely buy IMO, great one for the collection.
Belle Meade Bourbon
Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Tennessee), USATasted$39 One of my favorites. Very well balanced and a great sipper. Definitely a buy and one to have for the collection.
Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted$45 Awesome bourbon. Smooth bourbon I've had. Great nose and palate but lacks a long finish. Not as rich as some bourbons which makes it a great sipper IMO. Definitely buy it if you find it!
Jefferson's Reserve Old Rum Cask Finish
Bourbon — USATasted$80 Sweet sugary notes on the nose, not super complex. A little spice on the palate but otherwise super smooth and that same sugar. Finish is the same. So all in all a great sipper especially after a dinner but don't expect a complex 20+ year scotch or bourbon. If you can find it at retail a good buy if you have the money. If you like rum more than bourbon than this will be a good transition since it gets a lot from being finished in those rum barrels.
Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted$105 Sweet nose vanilla notes and butterscotch. Vanilla and sugar on the palate with some spices. Smoothish bourbon. Nutty finish. 3 days later this bourbon is changing. When I first opened it I would have said pass unless you can afford it and pay retail. It's gotten much smoother now so I can't wait to taste it again in another month. I'd say definitely buy if you can afford it and get it for retail but let it air out some.
Jim Beam Signature Craft 12 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted$40 Good but not great. Going to let it air out a bit and try it again!
Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted$80 Sweet vanilla and sugar on the nose. buttery smooth on the palate with just the right amount of spice. Slightly hot on the finish, the good kind with the same notes of sugar and vanilla. Man this stuff is sooo good and one of my favorites. Definitely a buy for the collection.
