  3. Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon

    Actually surprisingly good! Almost get a sweet like almond candy or a walnut nutty type of candy vibe on the palate ! The nose I kind of a honey and grass /earthy mixture that reeks of a pot still ! Honestly I was probably more harsh on Balcones at first when I started getting into whiskeys and bourbons but a few of their lines have changed my mind! Such a rapid difference between most distillery’s and at this point idk if they can be considered just a crappy craft distillery.... I’ve had a few store picks and all have been sublime! From the DFWWC pic to just the plain pot still . This distillery is slept on but won’t continue to be! I’ll happily buy pot still for $30 with no regrets for that change of pace But you’re either gonna love their stuff or hate it 86/100

    So I’ve been drinking this off and on usually when on sale but felt the need to review it on here. Nose: so upfront there’s a little bit of ethanol that kind of helps keep the fact that you’re sipping a 60%+ bourbon in mind. When pushing past that I get hints of almost orange pledge or peels with after hints of a sweeter scent maybe hints of honey ? Palate: so surprisingly there’s hardly any burn it’s more orange , rye spice and Caramel. The finish is nice and long but gentle nothing too too harsh for the proof but you’ll taste it on the exhale for a few breathes for sure. Overall I always usually take price into account with overall product because I rarely spend over $60 on a bottle unless I KNOW it’s worth it! This is a solid 86 given price account and flavor profile ! It’s affordable,packed full of flavor and always available! I prefer rare breed over this but not always and sometimes this hits the spot better!if never tried is solidly recommend !

  5. Templeton Rye Barrel Strength Straight Rye (2019 Edition)

    Rye — Indiana, USA

    Nose : some signature dill pickle, grassy notes maybe a hint a oak Palate: it’s got a good amount of mint to it, tastes fairly young my guess is under 4yrs or right at that if, a little bit of rye spice and that grassy note again. The finish is long and minty as well Overall I’d give this one about a 81 it’s pretty young but well done. Sometimes a youthful rye hits the best notes. Although for the price point I’d rather have James e pepper rye or the James e pepper cask strength for a fraction of the price.

    So I’ve been drinking but I’ll keep it short and sweet ! So the nose is sweet got some caramel and a hint of oak The palate: oak is present immediately with tons of caramel and butterscotch !honestly it’s surprisingly good and smooth! I know smooth isn’t a word to describe something however this is such a caramel and butterscotch bomb it’s anything but harsh ! Finish: sweet as hell and amazingly butterscotch that hugs you the whole way If price isn’t included this is a very rare 92!!!!! I can name on one hand the bourbons that hit the 90’s

    I’m a big fan of this one lots of orange and citrus through the nose but still has that rye spice I love and is the 80proof jammed up volume and taste wise to about an8! The finish is long spicy and desirable with hints of vanilla citrus that linger through! For $23 I can complain and I’d readily available it’d be a coin flip on whether I’d choose this or OGD 114 honestly ! What the 114 brings it lacks in what the BIB offers! I’d advise ppl to try both and make a decision for ones self first

    Honestly if tasting this and basil Hayden’s blind I hardly tell a difference and at 12.99-14.99 a 750 I always choose this! Yeah maybe the basil Hayden’s is “aged longer” however I’m yet to believe it since basil isn’t age stated and in blind tastings the two haven’t been picked apart correctly more than half the time. What can I say it’s 80 proof and I hold 80 proof stuff in low regard taste wise but this atleast has some flavor

    I’ll keep this short and sweet on this review! Nose: corn,nutmeg and flu stone vitamins Palate: corn up front ,some creaminess, and a hint of spice . Almost a nutmeg spice. Finish: is more of the same but pleasant 82/100 For the price it’s a solid pour that is slept on for whatever reason! Makes a nice decanter whiskey

    This review is on the NAS version . But I’ve had my fair share of 9yr age stated ones before. Any who let’s begin... Nose: so it’s a little less deep in the nose as to the age stated as it smells more corn forward a little less oak and lighter all around, I do get hints ofalmost a cinnamon and orange slice vibe going on. Not too bad. Taste:corn again, spice that has hints of that cinnamon and orange zest vibe going on. It’s got a decent mouthfeel not too thin about just right as 100proofers are my sweet spot. Nice oak char coming through that lightly reminds me of charcoal grilling with my dad as a kid. The finish is nice still get that almost old fashioned but a bourbon vibe the whole way . You can tell it’s a corn heavy mashbill as its defining characteristics are short and sweet and lack complexity . Overall I’d give this probably a 78-80 range it’s affordable and I’ll never complain if someone brings it over. However if I have the chance I will always scoop the Single barrel especially store picks over this everyday! It’s not bad it’s not great it’s middle of the road and that’s fine! Things I like more in the same price range:early times BIB, Wild Turkey 101, OGD BiB and OGD114 Things I like less: Jim beam black, old forester signature 100proof, Evan Williams bottled in bond Note: bottle sampled was a pint
