Whistlepig Boss Hog Ed. 7 Magellan’s Atlantic, Vermont Rye, 52.5 abv 73 "Like eating apple pie at your hippy friend's house." -in house tasting notes.
The aroma of this whiskey is rather unique with the teakwood bringing a musky almost incense like aroma. The spices found are more of the sweet nature rather than the hot/peppery ones. As you taste, the rye is moderately full and warming on the palate. The finish has almost a mulled wine quality to it. The length is long lasting and thought provoking.
Macallan 25yr., Speyside Scotch, 43 abv 300 Despite the age, the nose is quite fresh with just cut apples and oranges. Dark leather, maple syrup, and crushed nuts take over on the palate with wood spices and dried fruit following closely behind. This whisky stays with you for the long haul.
Hibiki 17yr., Osaka Japan, 43 abv 120 On the nose; honey, brown sugar, caramel, juicy pear and flowers. The taste is surprising and complex. Somehow light and rich, very warm with herbal notes, cocoa, and hazelnut. There is also an earthy, salty character, like a blue cheese or a Highland single malt. A bit of water brings out some chocolate. Finish is exceptionally warm and soothing.
George T. Stagg (2020), Kentucky Bourbon, 65.2 abv 49 The nose invites you in with caramel-stuffed chocolates, vanilla extract and sour cherries. The palate is rich and luscious, a slow-moving, sticky river of caramel, leading to peanut shells and coffee grounds. A sumptuous and lipsmacking, lengthy finish mixes indulgent milk chocolate with baking spices and oak.
Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2020, Kentucky Bourbon, 49 abv 149 Along with a healthy dose of oak, breakfast foods come to mind like oatmeal with brown sugar and apples; maple syrup and pancakes; and bacon and buttered toast. There's even a touch of cherry fruit here. As you taste, warm barrel spices come through which marries well with the aforementioned sweet notes. A nice bittersweet and savory finish is found with a bit of char smoke wrapping it all up.
Midleton Dair Ghaelach Knockrath Forest, Ireland, 56.5 abv 60 Irish pot still whiskey matured in traditional bourbon barrels and then finished for 2 years in native Irish oak. Vanilla cake, some leathery notes, and coconut shavings on the nose. With a palate of sweet baking spices, more toasted oak, and nice tropical fruits. A long woody heat finish with the spices fading away.
High West “A Midwinter Night’s Dram”, Utah Rye, 49.3 abv 60 The robust spicy rye notes are still present in the glass, but as it sits, red fruit tempers that just a bit. As you taste, the spicy rye comes again to the forefront along with vanilla and more red fruit. The finish is warm and spice filled with hints of chocolate and fresh whipped cream with a dash of white pepper.
Woodford Reserve Very Fine Rare Bourbon, Kentucky, 45.2 abv 43 There's a decent amount of char smoke on the nose, but it's coupled with significant amounts of cherry fruit and baking spices. And since there's also a bit of a buttery pastry thing happening, that is likely to bring cherry pie to your thoughts. On the palate the bourbon is fairly tangy with a medium body and a nice alcohol bite. The finish is pleasant and of moderate length with more of the cherry flavor shining through.
Blanton’s Gold Edition, Kentucky Bourbon, 51.5 abv 60 Right off the bat you get big oak, pencil shavings, tobacco, resin and sawdust. The nose develops into orchard fruits such as cherries. Vanilla, milk chocolate, honey, dried fruits and loads of pepper swirl in the mouth. Dry rye grass spices up the finish where these spices take forever to sizzle away.
Redbreast 27yr., Port Finished Irish, 54.6 abv 72 It opens with chestnut, vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon; it feels deceptively light at first, but then the port finish comes through with an unmistakably fruity, jammy note reminiscent of red currants. This is a spicy, high-proof expression, and a few drops of water can help open it up.
Four Roses 2020 Limited Ed. Small Batch, Kentucky Bourbon, 55.7 abv 32 As you taste, rye spice comes through as well as a moderate oaky flavor, but the bourbon isn't too chewy or tannic. You can still find those fruit and sweet notes too. A bit of leather shows up as well. The finish is lengthy with a tangy, bittersweet profile as well as a touch of green vegetal notes.
Old Rip Van Winkle 10yr, Kentucky Bourbon, 53.5 abv 70 You’ll find maple sugar, butterscotch, nutmeg, and red hots. Dried fruits and caramel continue through a long finish.

This is a lusciously rich dram landing sweetly on the palette with notes of toffee, pear, almond, and a bit of salt with a gentle floral finish.
