  1. Wilderness Trail Bottled in Bond Small Batch Bourbon

    Far better than I expected. A little bit of warm cooking oil rag on the nose, then a lot of toasted pecan and un-tanned leather on the tongue. Cherrywood through the finish, which was decently long. Especially for a craft distiller, this is a serious bottle.

    ...but still nothing special. Tastes young, less than 4 years. Not bad, but not something to go out of the way for, for sure.

    Undeniably good, but it also left me a little in the lurch - as in, I continuously felt I’d rather be drinking a Jamaican rum or Agricole rum. And I prefer the Jamaican/Agricole mix for my Mai Tais to the straight substitution of this bottle. So, it’s somewhat redundant for what I prefer to have in the cabinet, but it’s still a good dram.

    Classic bookers: charred peanut brittle, a little tobacco, a lot of burn when straight, but with a drop of water, some serious molasses and campfire. So good.

    Very good, but also somewhat unexciting considering the age statement.

    Last taste: s’mores. A familiar campfire with marshmallows and caramel, and a beautiful, viscous mouthfeel. A little saddle leather and pepper to finish it all out. A bracingly enjoyable pour. Decades, you shall be missed.

    As perfect as I’ve had. Every second of the sip explodes with flavors - berries and vanilla cream, slight cinnamon and oak, a little bit of tobacco on the very end. A complete journey from start to finish. One of the best bottle on my shelf.

    Such a good weekday sipper. A little more alcohol bite than I’d think from a 12 year, but the bananas and funk mixing with the vanilla from the wood gives such a satisfying finish.
