Willett Family Estate Bottled Rye 4 Year
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted February 14, 2021Nose is pretty interesting. Quite sweet with fruit tones. Palate and nose are both heavy with molasses. Fruit comes first and then warm cinnamon and sweetness. Never ever has any burn. Finish is long and amazing. Excited for this to open up.
Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2020
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 5, 2021Incredible. Nose and palate and finish are all really complex. Some Orange/citrus on the nose and palate. The spices are really balanced with sweet notes. I don’t feel like this is a “spicy” bourbon. The mouthfeel doesn’t feel heavy but is certainly somewhat buttery. Delicious. Will probably mellow out more over time.
WhistlePig 6 Year PiggyBack Rye
Rye — (bottled in) Vermont, CanadaTasted January 29, 2021Really like this. Tastes a little thin and sweet with perfect rye spice. Finish is somewhat short. Some really unique spices in there.15.0 USD per PourMitchell's Ocean Club
William Larue Weller Bourbon (Fall 2019)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 26, 2020Absolutely amazing. The nose is better than any bourbon I’ve encountered. Definitely hot and hard to handle. Has so much mouthfeel and flavor. Lots of similar flavors to OWA but times ten. Definitely spot on with the review. Spicier than anticipated. Water helps bring out the big flavors.40.0 USD per PourOliver's on the Cape Fear
Rhetoric 22 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 25, 2020Pure glory. Not too sweet or buttery. More spice and pepper and leather. The nose is fantastic. Finish is long and complex. Just opened the bottle!

Weller Antique 107
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 26, 2020Surprised I haven’t added a taste yet. Probably my favorite bourbon overall that is somewhat available. Big vanilla flavor with oily mouth feel and spicy finish. Still sweet and hot. Just the perfect balanced wheated bourbon.
Knob Creek 12 Year Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 26, 2020This one is difficult. Tastes hotter than 100. Probably the spice. Definitely has strong vanilla flavor and full mouthfeel. Not a bourbon to take lightly. Looking forward to trying more after it airs out some.
Very Old Barton 100 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 20, 2020Really good and balanced for the price. Smells of sweet syrup. Palate is sweet at first with an oily texture. Finish is pretty long and smooth. A little bit of spice and oak through the palate. My kind of simple bourbon.
Old Overholt Straight Rye Whiskey (114 Proof)
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted November 20, 2020The tasting notes are spot on. It’s spicy and a little thin. Fruity aroma. Cinnamon finish? Tastes a little hot with the 114 rye.
