    Ulele, Tampa FL (Columbia Restaurant Group Batch #1), 108.0 proof 3 Baked American Pure 2 1 Seared French Cuvee 2 Makers 46 2 Roasted French Mocha 2 Toasted French Spice Frankly, not overwhelming. Lacks distinction. Nose is light and floral. The palate was a bit flat to me, at first spicy, oily, and woody but some bitterness and fades fast.

    Another classic Booker's. Slightly milder and fruitier than most. The nose is sweet with a hint of clove.Well rounded on the tongue, running the gambit of sweet and spicy that Booker's always brings. Not a long finish.

    Very light fruity nose. Sweet, slightly medicinal palate. Not overly flavorful, but distinctly rye.

    Traditional rye nose, lots of clove and anise. More of the same on the palate. Brings some heat and the back of the tongue and throat.
  6. Woodford Reserve Bourbon

    Mild, slightly woody nose. Spicy but not over the top. I get cloves, so this must have a high rye mash. Not a stand out. Their double oaked is worth the extra cost, much more distinctive.
  7. Booker's Bourbon Batch 2019-01 "Teresa's Batch"

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    Under rated batch to my thinking. Not a strong nose, slightly smoky and yeasty, but it hits the tongue strong, full of spice and sweet vanilla.Nice burn in the back of your throat.

    Sweet, briney nose. Flavor makes me think this is a high rye bourbon. I get a burnt sugar taste, bit also a distinctive rue/clove flavor. Overall, very mild.

    Gomers Liquor, Kansas City 109.1 proof, 1 baked#2, 4 french cuvee, 3 Makers 46, 1 french mocha, 1 french spice. Light figgy nose. Light smoke, spice and fruit on the palate. Slightly peppery finish. Good but not memorable. I should have guessed from the stave selection, which was to broad leaving the effect less distinctive. This is the only Private Select I've come across in KC, however.

    Leathery sweet nose. Palate is spicy and sweet and slightly pruny. The high alcohol level is present from beginning to end. Very warm chest. Ice mellows the spice and brings flavor depth forward.
