Fighting Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon (NAS)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted September 4, 2022I want to like this a lot, and I think I like it enough. It does what it’s supposed to do and tastes like what it is for what it is.. Maple and grains. Very one dimensional, not in a bad way but not in a great way either. Ice helped it along but then ran away with any flavor. Miss the 6 year age statement
Old Forester Single Barrel Bourbon 100 Proof
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted July 24, 2022Cherry throughout on the nose and taste. Some teddy grams or honey. Vanilla. Medium pleasant finish and another good old forester single barrel
High West Bourye (2020 Release)
Blended American Whiskey — Indiana (bottled in Utah), USATasted May 12, 2022Lots of vanilla and cherry on the nose. Very mellow and smooth. Plenty of vanilla throughout. Medium finish. Very easy sipper with flavor
Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon 2016
Bourbon — USATasted April 30, 2022Ginger bread, clean and pleasant nose. Dark fruit, plenty of baking spices. Longer lingering finish.
Bourbon — Illinois, USATasted April 22, 2022Smells and tastes young. Getting past that there is grain and fruit. Very soft early but lingers late. Not a wonderful after taste. Tastes like earth day
Bardstown Bourbon Co. Distillery Collection Triple Blended Stave Finish
Bourbon — USATasted April 20, 2022Nose is wonderful. Sweet, oaky, everything you want. Taste was heavy wood, oak. Revisiting gets a burnt vanilla caramel - like if you brewed a vanilla caramel coffee, it sat for an hour and then microwaved to heat up - sounds rough but taste better than it sounds. It’s too one dimensional (wood). Good, but not something I’m reaching for all the time
Sagamore Spirit Barrel Select Rye
Rye — Maryland, USATasted April 10, 2022Nice nose, sweet fruit. Taste is very grainy, it’s definitely a rye. The proof doesn’t seem to help it. Ice helps to mellow and bring out some vanilla. Without the ice is a little astringent. Medium long finish.
Penelope Barrel Strength Bourbon Toasted Series
Bourbon — Indiana , USATasted April 8, 2022Smells like ethanol. Tastes better than it smells. Lots of wood, spicy, medium finish.
Blended — IrelandTasted April 1, 2022Nose-apples and sweet. Very fruity and do get the honey. Short finish
Elijah Craig 18 Year
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 30, 2022Nose is very sweet. Lots of vanilla and caramel comes through. Plenty of oak but not too much. Shorter finish than I expected. Good but hurts at the price
