New Southern Revival Jimmy Red Corn Bourbon
Bourbon — South Carolina , USAReviewed January 30, 2023Nose: sweet and slightly sour, like an old gym bag. Very young smelling. Past the slight funk is a prominent sweetness. Palate: definitely getting the corn forward sweetness but it lacks any distinctive body to the flavors Finish: really short lasting sweetness, slight vanilla pound cake on the finish. Why buy this when you have get mellow corn?

Remus Repeal Reserve Series VI (2022 Medley)
Bourbon — Indiana , USAReviewed January 11, 2023 (edited February 17, 2023)Nose: sweet sweet peanut brittle. If I didn’t know any better I’d say this was a Russell’s pick. Palate: some candied pecans, and some slightly bitter but pleasant barrel tannins, but I can’t seem to pull anything else out of it. Finish: the finish outshines the palate, oak is definitely here along with big red gum and some cayenne in the back of the throat. Not what I expected from the nose so it was fun!
Remus Repeal Reserve Series V (2021 Medley)
Bourbon — Indiana , USAReviewed January 11, 2023 (edited January 12, 2023)Nose: queen Ann cherries, pecan meltaway, pull n peel Twizzlers, candied orange slices Palate: gentle and oily at first but then a kick of black pepper/hot tamales punches mid palate. Finish: smokey sweet pipe tobacco, and the cherry/orange/nutty flavors are just dancing around FOREVER this is some top tier but gentle juice. I have to concentrate on the flavors because they are layered so nicely that if I wasn’t paying attention I would pound through this glass.
Knob Creek 18 Year 30th Anniversary
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 20, 2022 (edited November 28, 2022)Nose: very oak forward as expected, dark candied cherries, canned chocolate frosting, and that classic Jim Beam nuttiness Palate: oak is not out of balance even with it being 18 years old, plenty of sweet Virginia pipe tobacco, and leather, very rich on the palate Finish: slight bitterness (oak tannins?) are balanced nicely with the high cocoa chocolate, and a little nutty dryness that is a dead giveaway for Jim beam. Dryness disappears and I’m left with pipe tobacco and wood lingering for several minutes 85/100 or 4.25/5169.0 USD per Bottle
Larceny Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch A121
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 4, 2022 (edited August 5, 2022)Neat in a glencairn Appearance: golden copper with slow forming thicc legs Nose: baked apples and buttery cinnamon streusel Palate: slightly thin on the palate but then pops with dried fruit and nuts…like trail mix missing the m&m’s Finish: sweet nuttiness and red cinnamon candy, and the apple comes back through in the end. Solid 82 (converts to 4.1) this is an instant buy for me
Elijah Craig 18 Year Single Barrel Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 21, 2022 (edited July 16, 2022)Tasted neat in a glencairn Nose: smells like a werther’s caramel that has been sitting in the bottom of your grandmother’s leather purse for the better part of two decades Palate: ultra soft caramel fudge, rich mouthfeel and the creamy filling from a Queen Ann cherry. The oaky presence is bold and obvious. Finish: little burst of tart citrus, plenty of cherry, oak and caramel to last. Killer dram, thanks @LandryG for sharing!!
Pure Kentucky XO
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 3, 2022 (edited December 20, 2022)Sometimes my friends give incredible blind samples. Sometimes my friends are the worst. This was mixed in a set of blinds from @thechad Nose: honestly this smells like the bottom of a sweaty gym bag. I’m scared to taste it, but I’ve got to give a review to find out what this is. Palate: vegetal bitterness. As I swirled it around my mouth I was getting hints of black licorice but as soon as I swallowed I shuddered and the unmistakable taste of canned green bean juice hit me. I’ve only gotten this note in one whiskey before and this has got to be pure Kentucky. Finish: regret. 6.9/100
