WhistlePig The Boss Hog IV - The Black Prince  •  8/30/2018  •  5.0

Black Prince: Wow. The finish on this is out of this world. Armagnac really sings through this. Long spicy complex.

WhistlePig The Boss Hog V - The Spirit of Mauve  •  8/30/2018  •  5.0

Mauve: Oh man. This is crazy good. Calvados finish reminds me of Apple and pear cider. Damn.

Rhum J.M. Vintage 1999  •  6/28/2017  •  3.5

great fun nose of Nilla Wafers, more nutmeg and vanilla. Not as much dried fruit as I was expecting. Really great taste with more of the same but you do start to pick up some black licorice and a tiny hint of cereal or maybe caramel. After tasting I'm convinced that this has to be a used whisky barrel my 3 guesses are Bourbon, Madeira or an unseated Scotch barrel. Fun drink for sure.

Bowmore The Darkest  •  10/26/2017  •  3.5

Big phenolic nose and taste. Yes you get that classic Islay complexity but it's much drier than I was expecting. As it warms up in your mouth the phenols fade and your left with loads more notes to think about. This is a fun one.

Kavalan Sherry Oak Single Malt  •  10/26/2017  •  3.5

Mmmmm. A little smokey and oaky for sure. I like this. Not as thick or as elegant as its big brother but much much easier to drink. Good dried fruit notes. Maybe some fig? Either way. This is a sessionable Kavalan sherry cask.
