    I really dig the 100 proof. This takes it up a notch. Having it on the rocks tonight. My batch is 58.7% (117.4 proof) ABV. Getting an amazing dill on the nose even with the ice. Great taste that holds up well on ice.

    Day 17 of #30daysofbourbon for the #30daybourbonchallenge #bhm Balcones Pot Still Bourbon 46% ABV 4 Grain, Corn. Texas Wheat & Rye, and Barley Nose is vanilla and caramel. Palate is sweet, with a grassy note, I get a little oak Finish is a little flat. Short and a hint of dark chocolate. I have been waiting to open this bottle ever since I bought it on 9/2. I had high hopes after tasting the True Blue CS last month. True Blue this is not. 😒 I will let it sit and revisit. I've learned that neck pours aren't always the best judge of a bourbon. Rating 2.8/5

    Day 14 of #30daysofbourbon for the #30daybourbonchallenge #bhm Eagle Rare Barrel Pick. Tonight's taste came to me from The Rotgut Review and is my 1st Eagle Rare tasting. 45% ABV of Buffalo Trace low rye mashbill# 1 I decided to compare it to my Benchmark and 1776 Bourbon. (Realized just now I choose a high rye bourbon with 1776. DOH) Nose is oak, toffee, and spice Palate is spice and oak. finish is almost a dark chocolate. The bourbon is definitely darker from the longer time in the cask. 4/5. Great bourbon. Too bad it's a unicorn in Oh.
