Michter's US*1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 2, 2019This is young, hot, and a disaster. It’s a very poor whiskey that shows no craftsmanship. Finish is brutal. Save your money.
Calumet Farm 10 Year Single Rack Black Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted January 23, 2019Hot and thin. Burns like a very young whiskey. Decent nose. Not much to it. Would not recommend purchasing or even ordering off a liquor list. Drinks much cheaper than it is.
Evan Williams Single Barrel
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted January 15, 2019Would be more special and enjoyable with a triple digit proof. This has a shallow pallet and its high rating is undeserved. But, it’s good Single Barrel for the money
Blended — JapanTasted January 12, 2019Bright and floral nose. Palate is soft and sweet. This whiskey isn’t for me as it doesn’t have any body or spice. It’s forgettable, but smooth. Worth trying, but at a bar. Don’t buy the bottle until after you sip.
Angel's Envy Bourbon Finished in Port Wine Barrels
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 30, 2018This bourbon is overhyped and can’t seem to figure out what it wants to be. It’s the Notre Dame of bourbon. For me, the wine barrel finish overwhelms the good bourbon character. Hard to stomach @ $50. 2 * because the craft and care is obvious, even if the flavor is not for me personally.
Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 22, 2018Woodford, but more so. The second trip into the barrel adds oak to the palate and the nose. This has an extra toffee vanilla note. Good enough to be dessert.
Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Small Batch Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 22, 2018Smooth sipping. Vanilla and brown sugar on the nose and up front give way to the warmer flavors of cinnamon and burnt sugar. Though not particularly high proof, it drinks easier than the proof would have you believe. Enjoy this full bodied whiskey neat.42.0 USD per Bottle
Weller Special Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 22, 2018Sweet and rich. Brown sugar gives way to vanilla on every full sip. Wheated bourbon is a personal favorite of mine. Though I prefer Weller Antique for the higher proof and complexity, this is a dynamite bourbon to enjoy neat. Never leave this on the shelf, you don’t see it often.25.0 USD per Bottle
Eagle Rare 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 22, 2018A fine, delicious bourbon. It is sweet and full-bodied. Nose has vanilla, clove, and oak. This is a smooth sipper. The finest whiskey on the shelf at its price point and well above. Buy it when you see it. Enjoy neat.32.0 USD per Bottle
Blade and Bow Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted December 22, 2018Decent nose. Tastes cheaper than it is and burns higher than its proof. Open it up with a splash of water or ice cube despite the 91 proof. Truth be told, this is too pricy to mix and too rough to enjoy neat or on the rocks. There are simply better bottles of whiskey down the line. This is a weak effort from Diageo, who blends Bulleit.50.0 USD per Bottle
