Still Austin The Musician Cask Strength
Bourbon — Texas, USAReviewed November 26, 2021Nose: some oak, bowl of candy corn and peanuts, cherry sours candy, sour punch straws, marshmallow fluff, fried ice cream Palate: cherry sours more on the palate than the nose, light oak, hint of warhead when it turns sweet, plantain cooked in butter and brown sugar like at a steakhouse Finish: the finish is hotter in terms of ethanol than any other phase, orange zest Overall a good dram. Been looking for one for a while and it did not disappoint. Glad this is theoretically here to stay on shelves.
Belle Meade Cask Strength Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Tennessee), USAReviewed September 10, 2021Nose: marshmallow in a jar (I’ve been informed this is called marshmallow fluff), cookies baking in the oven, vanilla, oak Palate: molasses, brown sugar, pear, cinnamon, ethanol hit but good flavor Finish: long finish with a taste that is similar to after you’ve finish a cherry/red starburst candy. Thanks again to @TravHernandez for a great pour!

Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed September 10, 2021Nose: apple juice, apple jolly rancher, cinnamon, baking spices Palate: toffee, almond, tiramisu, brown sugar, apple blossom, respectable amount of ethanol without it being overpowering. Finish: leather, peanut shells, spearmint flavored snuff, long finish Thank you @TravHernandez for the pour. This one is impressive!
Calumet Farm 15 Year Single Rack Black Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 9, 2021One of the best whiskeys I’ve had in a while. Just so rich and beautiful. Thank you @TravHernandez a taster of this. I’ve been putting off the tasting for weeks now because I didn’t want it to be gone but here we go!!! Nose: amaretto extract, luxardo cherry, vanilla, tobacco. From the beginning, I felt like I did not do this bourbon justice since I was not drinking it in a library with shelves made of rich mahogany containing many leather bound books. Palate: the tobacco is there and it’s beautiful. It reminds me of a pipe tobacco I love called mountain mist. After the pipe tobacco taste you get some almond then a quick ethanol hit. The ethanol is not overpowering. It’s like a quick humble brag that is 105 proof and then it shows off it’s flavor again. This gives way to deep cherry and even cranberry flavors. Finish: long finish that give you some leather and then gives way to dark roast coffee. This bourbon has layers of flavor and it is quite possibly the top 3 of anything I’ve tried.
Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 11, 2021Delicious pour on vacation. Wish I could find a bottle in the wild. Maybe vacation vibes are temporarily making me soft but I rated it pretty high. Nose: Honey, cherry, caramel Palate: As much fruit as it has on the nose, there isn’t that much on the palate. The caramel and honey flavor come through though which I really like. Some maple syrup as well but it’s more like the rich, Crown brand, bourbon barrel aged maple syrup. Finish: short finish with slight dusty peanut taste
George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon — Indiana, USAReviewed July 3, 2021Great MGP juice directly from MGP distillery rather than being used through a different company. I have to give mash and drum credit for leading me to this. A great whiskey that has incredible flavor. Although very different flavors, I would put this right up there with smoke wagon as one of my favorite MGP whiskeys. As a big rye fan, this is a fun whiskey with strong rye but also with plenty of fruity flavors rather than rye dominating throughout the experience. Color: amber Nose: morello cherries, brown sugar, Greek yogurt Palate: starts off sweet with morello cherry, graham cracker, maple syrup and brown sugar. This is followed by rye spice that carried through the finish. Finish: long finish with rye spices predominating, however, some of those sweet, fruity notes such as cherry are present throughout.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 3, 2021A good, middle of the road sipper. I feel like adding an ice cube might actually take away a ton of flavor since it is already somewhat low proof. Still enjoyed this, though. A good Pinkie’s select from Lubbock, TX. Color: amber, light gold Nose: Apple juice, butterscotch, light caramel, banana pudding, fresh zucchini bread Palate: hot apple cider, sweet corn, baking spices, leather on the back end and through the finish. Finish: I’m not going to call this a long finish but it was longer than I thought it would be. The finish was actually my favorite part. This is where I got the most leather which is one of my favorite flavors to get.
Weller Special Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 30, 2021A good, standard, everyday drinker. Kind of wild it is in high demand right now. That’s not to say it isn’t good, but it isn’t top shelf either. Appearance: lighter golden color Nose: fresh baked bread, caramel Palate: caramel and vanilla to start that gives way to a taste of dough and warm lager. I’m sure there is a touch of spice there but it was very little. Very little ethanol. Finish: short finish due to lower proof. An easy drinker for sure.
Knob Creek 9 Year Single Barrel Reserve
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed June 30, 2021This was a great whiskey. The most surprising thing was the lack of ethanol on the nose. It does get spicy and the ethanol hits when you taste it, though. Appearance: amber/gold Nose: really surprised there is not ethanol even when I got risky and tried to take a big whiff. picking up peanuts and maybe slight brown sugar. Also smells like damp wood. Not an overall impressive nose. Palate: the flavors make up for the lack of nose. You get punched by fresh ground black pepper and ethanol up front that gives way to molasses, brown sugar. Finish: long finish with a bit of dry dusty peanut shell as the burn fades. I mean this in a good way when you have been eating peanuts for 30 min while waiting at Texas Roadhouse and now you’re ready to crush a steak.
