Woodford Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedLight bown sugar, thinner dram.
Reservoir Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon — Virginia, USATastedGiven its turbo charged in small barrels it not to bad but the strong cough syrup cherry flavour not for me.
Rock Oyster Sherry Edition
Peated Blended Malt — ScotlandTastedThe 18 was a very decent dram. This is a Jura, Arran and other combination...not so great.
Ailsa Bay Sweet Smoke Release 1.2
Peated Single Malt — ScotlandTastedThe 1st release i was not a fan of. I ordered this by mistake..so it was placed in the crap pile. It us a worthy member. Initial hit is a jumble of sweet lightish peat but the aftertaste..blargh
Michter's US *1 Unblended American Whiskey
Other Whiskey — USATastedNot one for me but well executed. Apricot mild cherry, I can see why people like it but to sweet for me.
Old Forester Statesman
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedSweet maple syrup bourbon and a lowly 83 is the expert review and I concur....
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedThe non-distiller reviews were poor but it's not a poorly constructed dram. Very light ethereal peat...only 11pm but not that bad albeit from low expectations...
Other Whiskey — Breton, FranceTastedOperation 'Clean out the crap' has commenced. First I herded all sub par crap into a pile. 30 most likely average/sub par samples into one pile with an occasional sprinkle of good drams I've already tried... the remaining 100 should be pretty good ones. Like my son who even at 5 is a big believer in delayed gratification (always eats the stuff he hates first and saves any treats he gets for an absurdly long time - seriously how many kids can holding off eating a stock pile of lollies for weeks?), I to am a big believer in tackling anything I don't want to do as soon as possible like painting the bathroom and ripping up the carpet today. I annoy my wife intensely by cleaning all the dishes and cooking utensils as we go sometimes before she's even finished with them.. Anyhow that was a very long winded way of saying this was a chore to drink. It was unusual and the completionish in me couldn't help but buy a sample...but I knew it'd be at best average and it was. The nose smelled like when you open a sterile medical supply, iodine but not in a good Laphroaig way. The palate wasn't terrible just odd..light sweet something or other. I think after tonight's run my sink is going to throw up..but rather it than me and my stomach...
David Nicholson Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky (bottled in Missouri), USATastedHmm..for the price decent effort but not really up my street taste wise. Sweet oakey candish.
Tomatin Five Virtues Series Wood Edition
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedTomatin can do awesome stuff... this is not one of them. Cotton candy and oak
