Broken Barrel Reserve Oak Series Finished with Stout Beer Barrel Staves
Bourbon — Kentucky , USAReviewed August 31, 2022Tried at a whiskey bar. One of the more complex bourbons. Nose is the sourness of the stout beer, with citrus, chocolate, and leather. Palate is a rich sweet desert of salted dark chocolate, caramel, oranges, leather, earth. This thing has layers. Finish is long and full with the citrus and bitter dark chocolate. Going to have to find a bottle to explore more
Whiskey Del Bac Dorado Mesquite Smoked Single Malt
American Single Malt — Arizona, USAReviewed August 31, 2022Tried at a whiskey bar. Wow. Nose is rich smoke and meat. Makes you think of barbecue! Palate is smokey and deep. Reminds me of some sort of sweet baked desert but I can't place it right now. Creme brulee maybe(the charred part). Finish is medium but the smoke lingers. The mesquite is at the front but works!
Compass Box No Name No. 3
Peated Blended Malt — ScotlandReviewed August 31, 2022Tried at a whiskey bar. Nose is all briny peat. Laphroaig is dominant (obviously). Palate is briny and fruity and the same time. A soft peat and leather of the Bowmore tones the brine down on the palate and finish. Finish is long and complex with peat, earth, and fruit.
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 9, 2022Tried in a modified Gelncairn from WanderFolk Spirits. Surprised by the citrus in this! Oak and sweet citrus. Palate is light, citrus, woody sugar. Finish is long and pleasant.
Weller 12 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 9, 2022Tried in an altered Glencairn from WanderFolk Spirits. Nose is sweet and spicy. Palate is rich and sweet. A seeet ripe fruit like a dark cherry. A lot of depth but I prefer the 107. Both are hard to get.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed August 2, 2022Nose is rich brown sugar and syrup. A bit of cinnamon. Sweet corn. Palate is more sweet brown sugar and spicy cinnamon. Red apple peel. It's pretty hot at 50% abv but not overly so and I prefer it. Finish is medium and complex. More brown sugar and cinnamon with an almost malty flavor. Water cools it down but does nothing for the flavor but dilute it. I prefer it neat. Good bourbon overall but there are others I would take at the price point.
High West High Country American Single Malt (2021 Release)
American Single Malt — Utah, USAReviewed July 29, 2022All I get on the nose is dried bales of alfalfa. Some sugary caramel or pastry sweetness in there but dried hay is primarily what I get. It's more of an earthy sweetness that reminds me of barns and round bales. Palate is along the same lines with some chocolate almond mixed in. After tasting for a minute more of the chocolate nuts comes out in both; along with some cinnamon and spice flavor. Finish lingers for a surprising amount of time and is light, sweet, and grassy (in a pleasant way). This is a good whiskey I was excited to try as a High West fanboy, but it's far from my favorite American Malt.
Jim Beam Bonded Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 28, 2022Nose is sweat corn. Dusty oak. Palate is thick and spicy with molasses. Ok finish that has some oak and iodine in it. Good whisky that's hard to find. Old Tub is the label you can find...
Weller Antique 107 Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 28, 2022Sweet and and dusty corn, brown sugar. Palate is all brown sugar and sugary oak. Deep and complex but not so much that it's hard to enjoy. Finish is very long and spicy. Amazing whisky.
