Treaty Oak Ghost Hill Texas Bourbon
Bourbon — Texas, USAReviewed June 14, 2022Some char and caramel on the nose with just a hint of spice and leather. It has a typical Texas taste on the palate: kinda grainy and grassy with a hint of apple from the wheated mashbill. Decent overall, but nothing spectacular.
NULU Reserve Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Kentucky), USAReviewed June 6, 2022 (edited September 15, 2022)Very solid overall pour. Charred oak and caramel along with a hint of cherry on the nose. The palate is a bit more fruit-forward along with a slight heat and burnt sugar. Finish is medium-long and warm.
Four Roses Small Batch Select Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 6, 2022 (edited June 17, 2022)Sweet and floral on the nose. Same flavors with some honey and oak continue through on the palate. The finish fills your mouth and is medium-long. Solid pour for sure.
Horse Soldier 13 Year Barrel Select
Bourbon — Ohio, USAReviewed June 6, 2022Almost a sour funk on the nose. The palate is like damp, peanuts that almost taste like they’re rotting. I’ll be honest, I’m glad I borrowed a sample of this bottle, because there’s almost nothing redeeming or enjoyable about it.
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 3, 2022You can definitely tell this is a pot still bourbon instead of a column still bourbon as there’s a quality on both the nose and palate that is atypical of column distillate. Kind of an oaky, fruity funk on the nose that also carries through on the palate. Maybe a hint of caramel too. Lengthy finish that seems hotter than 94 proof.
Witherspoon Straight Bourbon Whiskey Port Cask
Bourbon — Texas, USAReviewed May 30, 2022A little sweetness with a decent amount of port/wine as well. Drinks a little above it’s proof. Fair amount of port and ethanol on the palate. Finish is medium-short.
Monopolowa Whiskey 1782
Other Whiskey — Austria , AustriaReviewed May 30, 2022Almost a slight coffee note on the nose with a hint of fruit. The palate is grainy with some slight new oak flavor. Finish is fairly bland with some ethanol.
Blackland rye whiskey
Rye — Texas, USAReviewed May 30, 2022Grain and slight spice on the nose with a hint of leather maybe. Palate is thin with a lot of spice on the backend.
TX Straight Bourbon Cognac Cask Finish
Bourbon — Texas, USAReviewed May 27, 2022Interesting overall. Not as good as the sherry finish and definitely not as good as the tawny port finish. Has a sweetness to it, but overpowering. Same oakiness on the nose.
TX Straight Bourbon Tawny Port Finish
Bourbon — Texas, USAReviewed May 27, 2022Sweet and syrupy on the nose with a fair amount of oak. A higher viscosity and more dark sweetness than the rest of the TX offerings and much better than the standard shelf Angel’s Envy. TX did a great job with this port finished bourbon.
