Colonel E.H. Taylor 4 Grain

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample Elephants. They linger around the room. And the annoying thing is, as with elephants in small rooms, they come up. Someone mentions it. There’s a trunk that slaps you because it’s in musth. What am I blathering on about? A certain Bible that’s for whisky. Written by a cat eyed person […]

Heaven Hill 9 North Star

Every so often, I’m reminded of my most popular review on /r/bourbon. Wait… no, it wasn’t. Looking back it mostly just the one that, 2 year ago, did alright and had people talking. What am I blathering on about, you may ask? A Heaven Hill that was in Scotland released from Cadenheads. I declared it my […]

Woodford Reserve Malt

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample Woodford Reserve Malt is the fourth addition to the Woodford Reserve lineup. The idea? A malt whiskey, because that’s something some US distillers are doing.

Barrell Bourbon Batch 004

Thanks to a mysterious stranger for pouring me a dram of this whiskey. I’m kinda a hoarder when it comes to collecting things. It’s a downside of mine. Add to that my propensity to line up samples for review and I end up saving up drams for review chains that perpetually never come, and are […]

Booker’s Rye Big Time Batch

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. When Booker’s Rye Big Time Batch came out, I sadly couldn’t obtain some. Changing careers, not having children to sell, various other things that came up like needing food to live all got in the way. However, through some swaps, I was eventually able to get it. The idea behind it? Back in […]
