A Focus on Speyside, Allt-á-Bhainne, Kentucky Visitor Centres, Golf and Whisky
Early Times 150th Anniversay
Blended - U.S.A. - 50.00% 8 Stylish, but the finish knocks it back a few points for me.
High West Whiskey Son of Bourye
Blended - U.S.A. - 46.00% 8 The world's only Bourbon/rye marriage. And it works.
Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection 12 Years Old Bourbon From Floor #5
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 9 The clarity of the rye is absolutely stunning. If it turns out that there's no rye here then I'm a Dutchman!
Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch 2010 Release
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 55.00% 8 Another unsung hero shows its quality. Excellent layering effect.
Balcones Baby Blue
Corn Whisky - U.S.A. - 46.00% 7 A lovely dram, balanced between fruit and oak. Leaves a pleasant fresh taste.
Koval Four Grain
Grain - U.S.A. - 47.10% 7 Indulgent and slightly dangerous - delicious.
Dry Fly Triticale
Grain - U.S.A. - 42.00% 8 A big, rich classic Bourbon note to this one. Well played.
Great Lakes Distillery Pumpkin Seasonal Spirit
Liqueur - U.S.A. - 45.00% 6 ?Not unpleasant, but just too far removed from the (already vastly cavernous) flavour profile whisky has.
Stranahan's “Snowflake” Mt. Silverheels
Non Bourbon - U.S.A. - 47.00% 8 The initial nose is off putting but stick with it.
Bowen's Whiskey Small Batch, Handcrafted American Whiskey
Non Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 7 Despite being quaffable, this seems like a work in progress, which needs a little more time in the cask to allow the spirit to balance out a touch more.
Lion's Pride Oat
Oat - U.S.A. - 40.00% 6 Young and gawky, but there's something stirring.
Lion's Pride Dark Oat
Oat - U.S.A. - 40.00% 6 This is weird.
Corsair Buck Yeah!
Pot Still - U.S.A. - 46.00% 8 Definitely left of centre. It has more than a passing resemblance to the Corsair Rasputin. For the record I love it!
Sazerac 16 Years Old
Rye - U.S.A. - 45.00% 4 A very very classy mature rye. Highly recommended for the decadent boulevardiers among you.
Thomas H Handy
Rye - U.S.A. - 64.50% 8 An unusual floral profile for a rye. But delightful. What a nose!
Sazerac 18 Years Old
Single Grain - U.S.A. - 45.00% 9 A superb bourbon. As neat and perfectly dressed and combed as Richard Paterson!
Forty Creek John's Private Cask
Single Grain - U.S.A. - 40.00% 7 Interesting contrast between nose and palate.
Corsair Triple Smoke Single Barrel Distiller Select
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 67.50% 9 It's a love or hate whisky and I love it.
Colkegan Single Malt Whiskey
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 46.00% 9 Like walking into a French pâtisserie in a small rural Gascony village.
Jack Daniel's Sinatra Select
Tennessee - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 ?A classic rye whiskey. Gains balance and sweetness with a dash of water.
George A. Dickel's Tennessee Whisky No. 12
Tennessee - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 Not as smoky and char-like as I remember. Very enjoyable, but less obviously Tennessean.
Parker's Heritage Collection Original Batch
Wheat - U.S.A. - 63.70% 8 This has alcohol, complexity and character in abundance.
Dry Fly Cask Strength Wheat
Wheat - U.S.A. - 60.00% 8 ?Some will say this is bottled at too high a strength – I might have to agree with them, but the core of this whisky is excellent. One to disagree over.
