A journey round Islay, visits to Maker's Mark and Penderyn, and the conclusion to our trip down the Rockies
Dry Fly Wheat
Blended - U.S.A. - 40.00% 7 Well made. Just needs time in cask to bulk up a little. Just hope they keep some back for longer term aging.
Early Times 150th Anniversay
Blended - U.S.A. - 50.00% 8 Stylish, but the finish knocks it back a few points for me.
Heaven Hill Trybox Series Rye New Make
Blended - U.S.A. - 62.50% Again well made and clean and interesting to know where a spirit start, but it's only as a reference point. Again cannot mark.
Heaven Hill Trybox Series New Make
Blended - U.S.A. - 62.50% Interesting, but why is it being bottled? I've not marked it because there is no frame of reference.
High West Campfire
Blended - U.S.A. - 46.00% 8 A blend of peated malt and Bourbon? Very odd, but it works surprisingly well.
High West Whiskey Son of Bourye
Blended - U.S.A. - 46.00% 8 The world's only Bourbon/rye marriage. And it works.
Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey
Blended - U.S.A. - 35.00% 6 This has the imprint of cold dead hand of marketing all over it. Avoid.
Kinnickinnic Blended Whiskey
Blended - U.S.A. - 43.00% 7 A dram for a sweet tooth. The nose is more complex than the palate though. But there is a some harmony about it.
Pendleton 10 Years Old
Blended - U.S.A. - 40.00% 7 Very drinkable, but does it have sufficient complexity to retain the drinker's interest?
Yellow Rose Blended Whiskey
Blended - U.S.A. - 40.00% 8 I liked the nose but the palate was a little sweet and simplistic.
