Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch B519
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedFine on its own, but subpar in comparison to most other ECBP offerings. Less sweet, less spicy, shorter finish.
Foursquare 2007 Single Blended Rum
Aged Rum — BarbadosTastedSweet, spicy, and smoky molasses nose. Alcohol comes through strongly. The palate is the same. The alcohol builds in the roof of your mouth. Pepper on the finish. This could be habit forming.
Early Times Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedVery sweet slightly leathery nose. Super sweet and oaky palate turning to maple syrup and finishing hot in the chest. Not for the faint of heart but I like it. $25 for a 1L bottle.
Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Chocolate Malted Rye Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedMild earthy nose. Rich cocoa and tobacco hit the middle of your palate. Almost creamy. If you drank it blindfolded you might almost guess to was a liqueur. Shorter finish. No burn whatsoever. Extremely unique.
Heaven Hill Green Label 6yr
Bourbon — Kentucky , USATastedThe nose is sweet salted caramel. The palate is doughy with cinnamon and fruit notes The 90 proof is mild and there is very little heat. You could drink this all day long. This is a bourbon almost anyone could enjoy.
Evan Williams White Label Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedThe nose is very sweet vanilla and cloves. Take several sips before evaluating. I get pumpkin pie spices and candy corn on the palate with a mild pepper finish. Very enjoyable and under rated due to its inexpensive price ($16). I have done blind tastings of this against mid-priced bourbons with people and it always rates well.
Evan Williams Single Barrel
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedThe nose is mild with caramel, figs, and smoke. The palate follows similarly, with more caramel and fruit. The finish is warm with a slight bitterness at the very end. A good light whiskey.
Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch A119
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedAhh, Elijah Craig can do no wrong. Smoky, sweet and fruity BBQ nose. Strong, but not alcohol forward. The palate is at first fruity with lots of vanilla, fnishing spicy and finally a mild doughy pie. This is a particularly high proof even for ECBP but you'd never guess it. It does finish with a nice warm chest. Truly delicious.
Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2019
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedNose is sweet and fruity with a hint of cookie dough and molasses. At first soft on the palate but comes on strong. Classic Old Forester flavor, but more complex. Oily on the lips. Finishes strong and slow. A quick hint of menthol then cinnamon. Superior.
David Nicholson Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky (bottled in Missouri), USATastedLight fruit and brown sugar nose. Very cherry pie forward on the tongue. Light, not long.
