That time of year again folks. And standing on the other side of this glass cabinet is probably the closest I’ll get to #Pappy this year. Nice to window shop though...especially when it’s vintage Stitzel-Weller bottlings. 😬 🥃
Booked! 📅 🥃👍•

Happy hump day and day 19 of #30daysofbourbon people! Today my bottle of Henry McKenna arrived from a raffle win and after I took this picture I got straight into it😂 This bourbon has a triple bingo: it's Bottled-in-Bond, bottled at 100 proof and features a 10 year old age statement🤩 Featuring Heaven Hill's classic bourbon mashbill this bourbon gives drinkers a taste of this mashbill at 10 years old and at a higher proof than both Evan Williams Single Barrel and Elijah Craig Small Batch.
The nose is faint at first but then yields sweet caramel, vanilla bean, earthy peppery rye, and a touch of barrel smoke.
The palate is very thick and viscous, almost like an actual light syrup. It opens with caramel, folliwed by vanillaa wave of rye spice, dark chocolate and smoky charred oak.
The finish opens slightly bitter with burnt caramel, a wave of rye spice, roast nuts, smoky char and an aftertaste of spicy earthy oak.
This is an excellent every day bourbon. It's gives you a perfect bourbon profile at a proof and price that you just can't argue with. One thing that stood out in particular for me was how viscous it was on the palate. It almost reminded me of drinking a light syrup it was so thick and creamy with every sip. Ordinarily I wouldn't say that this is something I like but in this case it carries the flavours so well I can't help but love it. It has that typical Heaven Hill bourbon profile but everything is really well balanced and the oak is kept in check by the rest of the flavours. Definitely a bottle I'm glad to have added to my collection and I can see why it Best Single Barrel at the SFWSC this year. 🥃

It’s #turkeytuesday , what better time to crack my first Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Pick? I’ve heard nothing but good things and am excited to crack it open. This is the first of these I’ve found, but it looks like this might be a generic pick done by a larger distributing group? Can anyone confirm? #bourbon#whiskey#russellsreserve
