[Review] Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Strength

So when I was in Chicago last year I missed out on grabbing a few American whiskies I had my eyes on in favour of some clearance deals at Binny’s, which in hindsight was probably a mistake. One of those whiskies was a Binny’s pick of Jack Daniels Barrel Strength Single Barrel, a whiskey that I’ve heard great things about even with the reputation Jack … Continue reading [Review] Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Strength

[Review] Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel 2014

Thanks to fellow TWS member TOModera for letting me try this one! Of the many bourbons I’ve tried and enjoyed over the past year, Wild Turkey has definitely been one that I can come back to. One, because its inexpensive compared to the Heaven Hills and Sazeracs of the world and, two, because those inexpensive products like the 101 Proof Bourbon and Rare Breed can … Continue reading [Review] Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel 2014

[Review] William Larue Weller 2016

This series of reviews comes from a tasting held by my friend Mark at his place (Editor’s Note: This was held back in December 2019 before the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic happened. It is still VERY not safe to do large-scale tastings yet but hopefully that changes by next Christmas!), big thanks to him for hosting and putting out some great whiskies and to the individuals … Continue reading [Review] William Larue Weller 2016

Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel – Gates Circle Store Pick

Thanks to /u/blaw84 for this sample. I think. 90% of Canadians live within a small portion of the Canadian border. As such many Canadians who travel across the border on a regular basis find some stores near the largest undefended border. These stores, knowing that my country hates alcohol and needs to be big brother about it, pick their own store picks, showing us what life would… Continue reading Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel – Gates Circle Store Pick

Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition [Re-Review]

Thanks to?/u/devoz[+177]?for pouring a sample for me. A few years ago one of those “odd” moments happened with Bourbon. Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition, a special edition from a large company, was released in large enough quantities that most could have it. It wasn’t NAS, it wasn’t watered down, and it wasn’t bad. This was their anniversary edition. Taters… Continue reading Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition [Re-Review]

1792 Full Proof Single Barrel Select – Midway Discount Liquors

Thanks to a close friend for sending this bottle for myself and my father to enjoy. 1792 interests me. Fewer releases, not something I always had, and something I’m still learning about. Thus when a friend sent me a bottle of?1792 Full Proof Single Barrel Select – Midway Discount Liquors, I was very intrigued. It was added to a future tasting. I’ve said it before,… Continue reading 1792 Full Proof Single Barrel Select – Midway Discount Liquors

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Strength – 17-5593

Thanks to?/u/devoz[+9]?for pouring me a sample of this. “Hey guys, I bought a bottle of Jack Daniel’s” It’s one of those moments we all dread. He’s gotten the crazy. We have to take him outside, and shoot him. I joke of course. We’d bring him to doctors to properly put down. Or keep making fun of him. That helps one’s mental health, right? Alright, joking… Continue reading Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Strength – 17-5593

Yellowstone Select

Thanks to?@scotchguy.to?for sharing a dram of this with me. Yellowstone Select?is the flagship whiskey from Limestone Branch Distillery, a distillery established in Lebanon, Kentucky by Steve and Paul Beam. The distillery comes from the brothers who can link their families back to major Kentucky distillers, as you may have guessed based on their names. So we have two brothers who note they are seventh-generation bourbon… Continue reading Yellowstone Select
