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. — 4 months ago

Butteaux Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2004

a wow wine. What do you want in a wine? It’s here. Lemon zest, minerals, acidity and lift, great intensity, super young wine that will last decades and has room to improve. Like licking the edge of a razor blade dipped in sweet lemon. — 7 months ago
