Russell’s Reserve- “The Transition” (from Wild Turkey)

From Lawrenceburg, KY
Tyrone Rick E, 4th Floor
10 years & 10 months old | 110 Proof NCF

Tasting Notes: Juicy fruit gum, oak zest, vanilla, burnt caramel. Finish is med-long, juicy fruit gum, leading to white pepper and some heat. A dash of water really showcases the fruit and brings down the heat.

From Fredericksburg, VA
Buffalo Trace Mashbill 1 & 2
~9.5 Yrs Old | 100 Proof NCF

Tasting Notes: Dried fruit, baking spices, hint of tobacco and dusty notes. Transitions to a classic brown sugar profile that coats the mouth. Finish is med-long, white fruit, brown sugar, dash of heat. Classic JJB brown sugar profile that’s balanced and above average nose and finish. Won’t find this on the shelf at your local!

Blanton’s - “2022”

From Frankfort, KY
Buffalo Trace Mash Bill 2
~6.5 Yrs. Old | 93 Proof

Tasting Notes: Corn pudding, oak, tobacco transitions to chocolate, baking spices, and orange notes and dash of heat. Give this a few days of airtime and the heat on the end dissipates. While not overly complex it’s a very sessionable sipper. 

Rittenhouse Rye - “Rye Here, Rye Now”

From Bardstown, KY
GG “Deatsville” Rick, 4th Floor
~4.5 Years Old | 100 Proof Bottled in Bond

Tasting Notes: A bourbon lovers’ rye. Classic Heaven Hill notes of cornbread, vanilla with some spice on the finish. A blend of wood, spice, and candied citrus on the nose. Sweet and Spicy!

Weller Full Proof

Tasting Notes: Spectacular nose of caramel cremes & ripe fruit. No astringency on the nose and ripe fruit shines. The palate is coating and oily. Transitions to allspice and rock candy. Finish is medium with brown sugar, cherries, no heat, and hint of tannins. What’s not to like here? Great nose, balanced, and drinks like 95-100 proof. 

Old Forester Barrel Strength

131 Proof 

Tasting Notes: On the nose burnt caramel and spiced fruit cake. Palate is coating and transitions to toffee with a nose notes, leather, and oak. Medium long finish. This 131 proof drinks like a 100 proof and will improve even more with some airtime.
