Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Small Batch Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 7, 2022 (edited May 30, 2022)Solid overall bourbon. Much better than the first time I tried it. Hits all the typical tasting notes with a decent finish.
Mellow Corn Bottled in Bond Whiskey
Corn — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 7, 2022 (edited September 5, 2022)Not too shabby for an inexpensive bottle. Lots of corn sweetness on nose and the palate with just the right amount of ethanol burn.
Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 7, 2022 (edited June 3, 2022)No serious tasting notes as it was only a small sample, but I can say it was pretty incredible. Good flavor and long finish.
Weller Special Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 5, 2022 (edited May 17, 2022)Fruit, oak, leather, and ethanol on the nose. More fruit, tobacco, and a slight hint of bitter chocolate on the palate. Finish is short to medium. Overall very solid for a fairly young, 90 proofer.
Redwood Empire Lost Monarch Whiskey
Blended American Whiskey — USAReviewed April 29, 2022 (edited June 4, 2022)Nothing special about this bourye, good balance of oak, vanilla, caramel, and rye spice. The nose is great and the finish is longer than expected at only 90 proof, the palate is acceptable but is definitely the aspect that is the most nondescript and lacking overall. Solid daily sipper for sure.33.99 USD per Bottle
Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch C921
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed April 24, 2022 (edited June 1, 2022)Ethanol and oak on the nose with just a hint of caramelized sugars and molasses. The palate is leather and dark dried fruit with a nice good burn. The finish is lengthy and full. Overall, a great sipper when not compared side by side with A121 (which is the superior batch of the two)79.99 USD per Bottle
Booker's Bourbon Batch 2021-04 "Noe Strangers Batch"
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed April 20, 2022 (edited October 7, 2022)Lots of ethanol on the nose (almost a singes the nostrils) with plenty of burnt sugar, oak, and dark fruit, with just the tiniest hint of leather and tobacco. The palate is leather on the front with just a slight oak note along with some sweetness and maybe a touch or orange peel. The finish is loooooong with just the right about of burn. Very enjoyable for my first Booker’s taste.
Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed April 19, 2022 (edited May 31, 2022)Solid bourbon with a lot of banana notes on the nose and the palate. Also has the usual tropes of bourbon: sweetness, caramel, and a hint of oak.
Rossville Union Straight Rye Whiskey Barrel Select
Rye — Indiana , USAReviewed April 18, 2022One of the better ryes I’ve tried. No funkiness in this one, just a lot of spice, caramel, and dark fruit on the nose and palate with a medium-long finish. Just a great barrel selection by Someone Say Whiskey!
Templeton Rye 6 Year
Rye — Indiana (bottled in Iowa), USAReviewed April 15, 2022Very easy on the palate from start to finish. I try not to use the word “smooth” so I’ll instead say there are very few sharp peaks in the factor profile. Nothing spectacular, but a solid drinker.
