Michter's US*1 American Whiskey
Other Whiskey — USATasted January 30, 2019Huge vanilla on the nose. At first I thought it tasted a bit young but after it treated a minute it calmed down. A bit sweet and creme brulee on the palate. Short finish but a very nice dram.27.0 CAD per Pour
Sonoma County Distilling Co. West of Kentucky Bourbon No. 2
Bourbon — California, USATasted January 25, 2019Far too young by any objective criteria. Corn is predominant and its harsh to say the least. I had visions of wheated bliss but instead I'm mixing the remainder of this bottle with Ginger Beer. I can't recommend this40.0 USD per Bottle
Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Barrel Proof
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATasted January 21, 2019I tasted this blind against Blood Oath Pact 4 and a Russels Reserve 30th and it came last by a long shot. It's just too unbalanced with heat and alcohol up front with a flat back end and not enough spice. I rated it an 83. You do get a bit of caramel and some minor vanilla notes along with oak but they are overpowered by alcohol.
Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in No. 3 Char Wine Casks (2018 Limited Edition)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 27, 2018The wine cask adds some depth but isn't overpowering. A nice blend though may be hard to justify the expense.
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 12, 2018Big toffee up front followed by pepper for a long finish.40.0 USD per Bottle
Ezra Brooks "Old Ezra" Barrel Strength Bourbon 7 Year
