Adelphi Distillery

Breckenridge Distillery

reserve Blend Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Color of black tea. Nose of apple, oil, paint, crayon, lemon tea, and minty. Taste is spicy, yet quite sweet from caramel, and grapefruit zest. Quite smooth. Overall, combination of simple yet delightful flavors (spice and sweetness, bittersweet zest), not too complex but straightforward, and easy to enjoy. — 3 days ago

Balcones Distillery

Mirador Single Malt Whisky

@Delectable Wine this is the Balcones Mirador Single Malt Whisky. Could not find it in the system.

The marathon of liquor continues! This is a lighter whisky with a hint of oak barrel on the nose. Pours almost a lighter amber. Honeysuckle notes up front. Sweet influence. This starts off with a bit of a bite. A little unidimensional. Good oaky character to it. Finishes with a really nice pleasant pine resin note. Really intriguing. The finish alone made up the difference between the 9.0 I was GOING to rate this, and the 9.2 I ultimately rated this.

Stitzel-Weller Distillery

Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Color is quite deep, like concentrated black tea. Nose is powerful, oily, crayon, aldehyde, spicy, apple cider, and a bit oak. Taste is spicy, minty, oaky, zesty, and drier than I pictured in the first sip. Ginger and more zest in the following sips. Still quite dry until finally caramel like sweetness comes out. Powerful and Anot for faint heart. — 2 days ago

Kurayoshi Distillery

Aged 18 Years Malt Whisky

Never seen this before. From Matsui shuzou, Tottori! Said to be a blend of Scottish -Japanese malt. Very pale straw color, surprising for 18 years old / whisper of smoke / hint of white peppercorn & spice / very clean on palate, almost like a bone dry fino. I wonder what is the mystery Scottish ingredient? speyside? — 10 days ago

This afternoon/evening was our first of two baby showers. Not only were we surrounded by friends & family, but we were also surrounded by some good wine & other drinks. This was one of the selections at our whisk(e)y & cigar bar.

Very smooth; paired nicely with a maduro.

12 Years Old Double Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Great Scotch! More honey notes and a longer, hotter finish than the Sherry Oak Cask 12 Year. Hard to pick a favorite, but I'd go with SC... It's just so smooth. — a day ago

Very peaty! I would have guessed, if I were blindfolded, that it was a Laphroaig. — 13 days ago

Wow. Fig notes are apparent here. Sweeter oak and fig nose. Entry has great weight. Toasty and a hint of smoke, hint of honey. This is a 94.49, could not put it to 95. This is a great "go to" or everyday drinker. Impressed!! — 20 days ago

@Arden Barnett I completely agree. Had this one and the rumble, and they were both extremely well done.

Haven’t caught the Bourbon bug yet, but your notes are pretty compelling, Mark!
