Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedGreat replacement for the classic Jim Beam! Less oily and nutty, maybe a bit fruitier, definitely younger, but with the same corny comfort.
Unflavored Vodka — PolandTastedAn exquisite, sippable vodka. From sweet, candy-like fragrance, through airy, yet just enough oily texture, to spiciness at the end.
Baileys Original Irish Cream
Dairy/Egg Liqueurs — IrelandTastedA classic that cannot really go unchallenged, but... With all its yummyness it would be nice if it was slightly thicker.
Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATastedBanana, the fun part of the classic, is only exposed here, and so is the surprising nuttiness. But being too airy it lacks the same comfort.
Lagavulin 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedLiquid smoke, leather, beef jerky marinate and something chemical as a backdoor way to great sweetness. A beginning of a great adventure!
Bulleit 12 Year Rye
Rye — Indiana, USATastedNutmeg, a bit of clover, after a while even mint, and that's just the nose! Spicy, but not hot, herbal, but not medicinal. Simply superb.
J.A. BACZEWSKI OVOVIT
Dairy/Egg Liqueurs — AustriaTastedMaybe a bit too thick and could be boozier, but OMG, that's basically liquid white chocolate. And remember, Baczewski is Polish, not Austrian!
Queen Margot 8 year
Blended — ScotlandTastedNo miracles here. Pleasant on the nose, but a bit grainy and almost too smooth, to the point of resembling more of Canadian than Scotch.
Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask Limited Edition
Blended — IrelandTastedMore of booziness of overripe apples than tartness of cider. Overall, it's barely a hint, covered by long lasting sweetness.
The Dubliner Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandTastedSweet eggnog, some spicy booziness and even a little bit of smoke. Weirdly unbalanced, but any Irish with some character is appreciated.
