Bourbon Whiskey #1 (That Boutique-y Whiskey Co.)
Bourbon — USAReviewed December 27, 2021Sometimes peanuts, sometimes cherry, and all the time cedar blocks or chips in the aroma. Moderately sweet on the palette, with a hint of wallpaper paste. Despite the description, I actually do like this bourbon. 3 cl sample from The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar (2020 Edition).
Glenfarclas 21 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed December 21, 2021Initially, I got the aroma of banana pudding, but that was followed by that of strong gingerbread spices. The flavor is spicy, but only moderately sweet. Mint in the finish. 3 cl sample from The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar (2020 Edition).
Glenfiddich 21 Year Reserva Rum Cask Finish
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed December 12, 2021As a fan of bourbon, I don’t get most of the comments here. This scotch has a fairly weak flavor, with a bit of smoke, and I find it dry rather than sweet. Vanilla, brown sugar, raisins…nope, none of those are there for me. Just disappointment. 3 cl sample from The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar (2020 Edition).
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 2, 2021Very nice. Delicious. Vanilla and a touch of citrus in the nose. The flavor is rich, moderately sweet, with wonderful floral notes and a bit of rye spice. The finish is long and pleasant, and ends with the faintest tingle of menthol. Slightly pricey, but you’re paying for the cool bottle, too.54.99 USD per BottleTotal Wine & More
Coffee Liqueurs — MexicoReviewed November 30, 2021I was hoping that Kahlúa Especial would be better than regular Kahlúa, more like the Kahlúa I remember from two or three decades ago, but it’s not obviously so. People say it’s less sweet, but it’s still plenty sweet. It says “made for cocktails” right on the label. I’m sure it’s great in a Black Russian or White Russian. I added some milk. It’s fine, but nothing really especial.15.99 USD per BottleTotal Wine & More
Sheelin Irish Cream
Dairy/Egg Liqueurs — IrelandReviewed November 23, 2021Dirt-cheap knockoff of the original Irish cream, Baileys. It’s not made with Irish whiskey, but with “grape wine,” and it’s obvious even if it wasn’t written on the label. It’s not completely terrible at first sip, but then this gross, vomit-like flavor shows up in the finish. It might be okay in mixed drinks. My dad has no sense of taste and gave me this bottle; price is what matters to him. I think you get what you pay for, and recommend you spend more for Baileys or another, better knockoff.9.99 USD per BottleTotal Wine & More
Wow, that’s very nice. Sweet, with brown sugar, vanilla, and orange in the nose. Like an orange creamsicle. Spice, orange, and dark chocolate on the palette. Great, rich flavors. Well worth the price.59.99 USD per BottleTotal Wine & More

George Dickel Barrel Select
Tennessee Whiskey — Tennessee, USAReviewed October 28, 2021Somewhat sweet, then slightly tart. Brown sugar, caramel, and a hint of peanuts. I’m not really getting the banana that a lot of people mention, which is a good thing. Good, but not as good as the Bottled in Bond 13 Year (Spring 2007) that I recently tried.39.99 USD per BottleTotal Wine & More
Rabbit Hole Cavehill Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky , USAReviewed October 4, 2021Initially, I wasn’t fond of the flavor, but as I worked my way down the bottle, it grew on me. There’s honey, orange marmalade, even a hint of strawberry sometimes, and rye spiciness, but there’s no rye in the mashbill. Starts somewhat sweet but finishes dry. A bit pricey for what it is. There are other bottles I’d rather buy for the money.47.99 USD per BottleTotal Wine & More
