    I have a whiskey shelf which I call the remnant shelf. After I consume about 3/4th of the bottle, the bottle gets relocated from the bar to the remnant shelf. This is where I keep tasting samples of bottles to share with guests who had never tried the such and such whiskey. The other day I grabbed a bottle to share with some friends. It was “Rittenhouse, a straight Rye whisky, bottled in bond, 100 proof”. Bottled in bond refers to American made spirit which has been aged and bottled in accordance with US government's Standards of Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. In order to be labeled as "Bottled-in-Bond" or "Bonded," the spirit must be the product of one distillation season, which one distiller at one specific distillery. It must be bottled and stored in federally bonded warehouses for no less than 4 years. The bottle is one of the best values on the shelf averaging $28 to $35 a bottle. The color is a beautiful soft amber with a taste of vanilla, toasted marshmallows, brown sugar and caramel. It has a rich, bold flavor and not harsh going down. This is good to drink, neat, on the rocks and mixes well in cocktails. I highly recommend it, 5 stars.

    Not really sure where this bottle came from, a good friend must have thought I would like it and brought it as a gift to me. Well you may be my best friend, who ever you are. This is a semisweet with citrus, mild yet spicy vanilla. Don't know the costs, cause I didn't buy it but assume it's under $35. Check out your cabinet and see if your neighbor left you a bottle. It's gets four stars cause I don't know the cost and I didn't pay for it.

    15265, 9/2015 Batch. Very nice spice flavor, sweet with caramel and vanilla. It definitely needs to be over ice. Great price $23, so cost alone earns 4 stars.

    Found a bottle in the back room of the store, only had 1 bottle so I brushed the dust off and bought it. I like Angel Envy so I'm hoping they are similar.

  7. Russell's Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon

    110 proof, a little strong on first taste, but then the caramel flavor catches and takes you back to those caramel candy apples from the state fair! I like it!!

    I found Tatoosh Bourbon, Rye and Scotch brands on a Holland American Cruise from Vancouver to Alaska and fell in love with them. Tatoosh Distillery: Trying the Bourbon, 80 proof, first which has very subtle flavors of corn & oak, sweet dark cherries and vanilla. It has a soft and smooth warm light finish. The Rye, 86 proof, the mix is 70% rye and 30% corn! which cuts the rye flavor. Still having a very pronounced rye taste. This will become a staple in my bar. The scotch, 80 proof, I am not a scotch drinker but this seems to have a taste demanding of a scotch, but much less harsh. As luck would have it, I met one of the owners on board the ship, conducting a little training with the ships bartenders. The distillery is located in Seattle, Washington But the product is not currently available in my home state of SC, with GA being the closest. Please give this a try when you find it.

    Great bourbon for the price. Vanilla, nutmeg spice, smokey char that lingers. I can't wait to try it with a bacon recipe.
