    Nose: Sweet brown sugar, a bit of a dusty grain barn smell and some peanut shells. Taste: More sweetness but no syrupy at all. Some vanilla and oak spice come through as well. Finish: doesn't offer much more. Is reminiscent of an aged rum but not as thick and syrupy on the palette.
  2. Chicken Cock 15 Year Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    Nose: Somewhat light nose for the age. Nice toasted oak with just a bit of that rye spice popping up. Palate: Cherry licorice, and cinnamon are met with a soothingly sweet caramel and vanilla. Dark chocolate cover orange peel brings up the rear. Finish: Long and lasting with more notes of cinnamon and cracked black pepper. A great offering from a brand with a long history!

    Nose: Sweet and smokey with a meatiness there too. Some brininess as well mixes with fresh cut green apples. This is smoothed out by a nice vanilla note. Palate: Woodsy spices with smoked sea salt take the lead. Just a touch of peat and more fresh cut green apple, but it's subtle. A sweetness rounds things off as you get to the finish. Finish: Oily and long the woodsy spice lingers not unlike that of a gingerbread cookie, more zing than “spicy”. Lovely dram!

    Nose: A lot of fresh malt mash. Just a bit of dark chocolate or cocoa powder. Some old leather polish but in a pleasing way. Palate: Honey and a malty bread like taste at first sip. As it moves more to the mid-palate it develops more of a dried fruit and burnt sugar note. Finish: Some cinnamon and clove start the finish off but then a cigar box and sweet pipe tobaccos sneak in before fading away.

    Nose: Heavy vanilla and oak spices, fresh crushed peanut shells. A hint of green leaves as it opens up. Palate: smooth with lots of vanilla and oak spices battling for dominance. A little bit of caramel develops out of the midst of the others. Finish: very short and dry like a tannic white wine. Cinnamon sticks and a little bit of char end things.

    Nose: Sweet ripe orchard fruits like a nectarine or apricot. Honey and vanilla creep in as it opens more. Palate: A lot more honey and vanilla develop. A bit of oakiness as well mixes with that ripe nectarine/apricot from the nose. Finish: The ripe fruit turns more to an orange like zest and cedar wood box like character.

    Nose: beach bonfire, think of great times at dusk at the beach. A bit of smoked honeyed ham. With a touch of pepper. Palate: a lot more of that seaside bonfire tasting, charcoal smoky. A slight medicinal taste that fades quickly to more of a vegetal/seaweed salad flavor. Finish: on the sweeter side of smoky, oily mouthfeel that lingers a while.
