Kentucky, Louisville, Benromach
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.
Booker's 6 to 8 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 62.50% 8 Every time I taste small batch bourbon, this one comes out on top for me.
Booker's 6 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 63.25% 8 Wonderfully expansive. Seems to embrace the tastes of the south, all the way from Kentucky to Louisiana.
Balcones Baby Blue
Corn Whisky - U.S.A. - 46.00% 7 A lovely dram, balanced between fruit and oak. Leaves a pleasant fresh taste.
Dry Fly Triticle
Grain - U.S.A. - 42.00% 8 ?A big, rich classic Bourbon note to this one. Well played.
Balcones Brimstone Corn Whiskey
Non Bourbon - U.S.A. - 61.00% 6 For some reason I keep thinking of Gram Parson's immolation at Joshua Tree.
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.
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.
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 62.10% 8 Despite the 'Old', a new rye. The idea was to get closer to what the first American ryes might have been. I like the idea. Wins points for all-rye character and assertiveness.
Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Maple Wood
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 47.20% 7 Deep, rich. The final recommendation from a cracking bunch.
Jack Daniel's Single Barrel
Tennessee - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 An interesting interplay of Jack Daniel's house character and a more luxurious oakiness.
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.
Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey
Wheat - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 At an ‘all you can eat' buffet in Chicago, a woman piling her plate said to me: “isn't this sinful?” This is temptation in a bottle.
Dry Fly Port Finish Wheat
Wheat - U.S.A. - 42.00% 8 ?Hard to pin an age on this, as it has some lovely fresh youthfulness, but an elegant maturity too.
