Clase Azul Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedThe gold standard. In my opinion it’s nearly flawless. Rich, fruity palate. Just enough of a late burn to remind you that it is actually alcohol but hen it finishes so sweet and smooth that you forget again.
Don Julio 1942 Tequila
Tequila Añejo — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedIt’s really freakin good. My wife likes it better than Clase Azul Reposado, I think it’s a close second. Best chilled but neat. Hits smooth like you’d expect for a $100 bottle of tequila but finishes deliciously sweet. 2nd best tequila I’ve had.
Don Julio 70 Añejo Claro Tequila
Tequila Añejo — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedDamn, this shit is sweet liquid platinum. Second only to Clase Azul. Incredibly smooth and sweet. Going to keep this one stocked.
Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedMan, for such a high proof this is some good shit. Enters almost sour in a good way. Mid pallet is mellow and smooth, and the spice finishes but it’s brief. Great bourbon.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedHonestly not my jam. Hits rich with a lot of spice, but there’s nothing smooth or sweet to mellow it out.
Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedMellow on the palate, then a good spice enters and then the bourbon finishes sweet. Really good journey, solid bourbon.
Casamigos Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedOne of the sweetest tequilas I’ve ever tasted. I personally love the perfect blend of vanilla bean and fruit that dominates this tequila. So easy to sip on ice. Not a “try once” type of tequila. Keep it stocked.
Don Julio Añejo Tequila
Tequila Añejo — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedWhile neat, this tequila is what happens when smooth and spicy meet. It enters smooth with a vanilla flavor, then the spice kicks in intensely but briefly, and then it mellows out to a nice smooth finish. Over ice, the spice is less prominent and the smooth is more so, over a short period of time the spice nearly vanished and your left with a ridiculously smooth tequila.
Wild Turkey Rare Breed 116.8
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedHas that expected wild turkey spice to it, but despite its high proof has a unique sweet note to it that balances out that 116 proof. The sweetness is very vanilla focused, and over a cube of ice this is a great drink to enjoy for the better part of an hour.
Tullamore D.E.W. 12 Year Special Reserve
Blended — IrelandTastedNot a huge irish whisky fan to start so I am a bit biased. I’m not a big scotch drinker and I feel like all Irish whisky has a scotch profile to them. That being said, this is a very sweet sippable Irish whisky. Very smooth on both the entry and the finish. Definitely fruity and vanilla notes. Aside from the general Irish scotch profile I am a big fan of everything else. If you like Irish whisky, you will enjoy this.
