Gran Cava de Oro Tequila Extra Añejo
Tequila Extra Añejo — Jalisco, MexicoTastedVery sweet aromas with caramel and fresh prickly pear. Still sweet on the palate with prune and cracked pepper. Sweet on the finish as well with mild clove and vanilla.
Comopveda Extra Añejo
Tequila Extra Añejo — Jalisco, MexicoTastedVery soft nose. Light smoke and cracked pepper with red orchard fruit and soft vanilla in the nose. On the palate the pepper dominates up front. Sweet red plum and agave nectar rise up from under the pepper and carry through to a very long finish. A touch too sweet for my personal taste.
Gran Cava de Oro Tequila Plata
Tequila Blanco — Jalisco, MexicoTastedFresh citrus on the nose with faint green pepper herb and fresh agave notes. Smells incredibly clean. On the palate there’s an intense cracked pepper right away, fading to a soft very slightly sweet lime finish.
Calumet Farm Single Rack Black 12 Year
Bourbon — USATastedFairly soft nose of banana cream and black cherries with honeyed almonds. Again, soft on the palate with more prominent almond and raw hazelnut. Vanilla and oak tannins ramp up in the finish. A very enjoyable whisky, but at a price...
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedEverything about this is soft. Subdued nose of orange peel, toast, and oak with mild black cherry. On the pallet the fruit shows a bit more, but still very soft. A quick finish with mild spice is pretty forgettable. Certainly don’t see why this is a “must have” for most...
Johnny Drum Private Stock Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedBaked apple pie with vanilla and obvious toasted oak in the nose. On the palate there’s a sweetness that is decidedly caramel and vanilla dominated. Mild mint spice shows in the finish with medium length.
Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedBold nose of baked apples, spicy cinnamon, lanolin and soft campfire smoke. On the palate spicy nutmeg and roasted almonds reign supreme. Everything about this whisky starts big bold and intense, and continues to fade away down through a very muted and quick finish.
Bardstown Bourbon Company Château de Laubade
Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Kentucky), USATastedWow what a nose! Dripping with orchard fruit, worn leather, flint smoke and poached pear and apples. On the palate peach and spied pear sing with heavy influences of baking spice and the same worn leather in the nose. The finish lingers for ages and reinforces all of the wonderful notes from earlier. A terrific whisky that I cant possibly have enough of!
Bardstown Bourbon Company Copper & Kings American Apple Brandy
Bourbon — Indiana (bottled in Kentucky), USATastedNose of fresh pear and orange peel with strong apple and soft cinnamon. On the palate there’s strong oak influence with nutmeg and apple cider vinegar. Defiantly drinks on the hot side. Finishes with notes of worn leather and more dried fruit character.
Weller Antique 107
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedVanilla and honey nose with peach and cherry. More obvious oak influence on the palate. Soft sweet cinnamon and peaches with buttery pastry crust. Finishes strong and just a touch hot and a little unbalanced.
