Day 20 of #30daysofbourbon Henry McKenna for tonight’s pour, a good bourbon at a great price. This is an all around solid pour, with slight sweetness,dark fruits and mild oak. This deserves a spot in any home bar. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #porchdrinking #awayoflife #bourbon #mainenights #henrymckenna
Day 19 of #30daysofbourbon and Wednesday, so an OWA store pick seemed appropriate. This is one of my all time favorites, if it was easier to find it would be my daily drinker.#bourbonheritagemonth

I was getting ready to post and realized I had not posted this one yet.  Day 18 of #30daysofbourbon todays choice is Elmer T Lee, a great all around bourbon. Not much I can say about this that hasn’t been said already. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #awayoflife #porchdrinking #bourbon #mainelife
Day 17 of #30daysofbourbon tonight is Rock Hill Farm, nothing really needs to be said about this bourbon. Damn good pour. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #porchdrinking #awayoflife #mainenights #bourbon
Day 16 #30daysofbourbon and it’s 1792 Full proof for me tonight. For me you can’t go wrong with any of the 1792 products. The nose on this is dark red fruit, vanilla and brown sugar. The taste is fantastic with cinnamon, brown sugar and slight citrus. The finish is a warm embrace that goes on for a while. There is nothing not to like about this pour. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #awayoflife #porchdrinking #mainenights #bourbon
Day 15 of #30daysofbourbon I just got back from our yearly Toys for Tots ride, 94 miles,we raised a fair amount of money this year. It always feels good raising money for kids. My after ride pour is Bulliet barrel proof, the nose is alcohol, but not in astringent way, vanilla and caramel. The taste is sweet to start with an immediate blast of heat, following that is brown sugar and oak. The finish is a nice lingering flavor with a Kentucky hug. I had my doubts about this at first but it has grown on me, if you haven’t tried this you should. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #awayoflife #porchdrinking #mainenights #toysfortots #widowssons #wsffws

Day 14 #30daysofbourbon High West American prairie bourbon sounded good to me tonight. Sometimes you get caught up in the allocated fever and only drink the higher end releases, I’ve been guilty of that myself. This High West offering is smooth, flavorful and everything a bourbon should be, and for the price could easily be an everyday drinker. I’ve liked everyone of their products, well, except for the campfire, but that’s just me, I’m not a fan of smoke in any of my whisk(e)y. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #awayoflife #porchdrinking #bourbon #mainenights #americanprairiebourbon

Day 13 #30daysofbourbon Russell’s Reserve store pick tonight. This comes in at 110 proof and is non chill filtered. The nose is citrus and green apples. The taste is a nice spice with vanilla and cinnamon. The finish is a little dry and spicy with oak. This bottle never disappoints. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #porchdrinking #awayoflife #mainenights #bourbon #russellsreserve
Day 12 of #30daysofbourbon tonight I’m revisiting one that I haven’t had in a while, Blood Oath Pact 2. This seems to be one of those bourbons people really like, or really dislike. I’m on the like side of that, the nose is light and floral with a hint of fruit. The taste is dry with oak, dark fruits and honey. The finish is warm and seems to linger on a while. While I like the pact 2, I think each expression has been better than the previous one with 3 being my favorite. #standishmaine #porchdrinking #awayoflife #bourbonheritagemonth #mainenights

Day 11 of #30daysofbourbon  Old Forester 1920 is the pick for tonight. I love this bourbon, it’s thick mouthfeel and rich flavors are fantastic. #standishmaine #bourbonheritagemonth #awayoflife #porchdrinking #mainelife
Day 10 of #30daysofbourbon  I’m a day late posting this, this pour is Jefferson Ocean voyage 11. The nose is light with vanilla. The taste is warm honey, not sure if I actually taste mild salt or if it’s my imagination. The finish is mild like I expect from Jefferson’s with more rye than I’d have thought. I drank this at #salvagebbq this is still one of my favorite places to have a bourbon, they have a good selection( not as good as they’ve had in the past) and very reasonable prices. #bourbonheritagemonth #portlandmaine #daydrinking #awayoflife

Day 9 #30daysofbourbon tonight’s is Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve N.H store pick “a hint of mint.” This is everything you’d expect from KCSBR and then some. The nose is dark fruit, honey and like the name says a hint of mint. The taste is viscous mouthfeel with oak and cinnamon. The finish has a nice warm lingering end. This is my favorite knob creek so far, I’m going to have to see if they have any left. What’s your favorite KC? #standishmaine #porchdrinking #arturofuente #mainenights #bourbonheritagemonth #awayoflife

Day 8 of #30daysofbourbon tonight’s dram is Chattanooga Whiskey Co. Cask strength. This comes in at 115 proof, but doesn’t seem that strong. The nose is brown sugar,vanilla and cherries. The taste is sweet with dark fruit. The finish is warm and lingering. I really like this bourbon, I picked this up a year or so ago here in Maine and have never seen a bottle since. I’m getting low, I’ll be taking it easy on this one. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #porchdrinking #bourbon #mainenights #

Day 7 #30daysofbourbon and it’s Friday, so it seems like a good day for Elijah Craig Barrel proof c917. I don’t think I need a review here, if you’ve had it, you know how good it it, if you haven’t you want to try it. I find myself going back to this more and more, definitely one of my all time favorite barrel proofs. #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #bourbon #porchdrinking #mainenights #barrelproof #ecbp
Day 6 of #30daysofbourbon tonight I’m trying Bib &Tucker. On the nose there’s alcohol, like it’s a young bourbon along with vanilla. The taste seems earthy,woody and maybe slight licorice. The finish is dry and quick. I’m not sure how I feel about this bottle, I know it won’t be an everyday drinker and at $60 a bottle I’m not sure I’d get another. I’ll have to try it in some cocktails and see if I change my mind. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? #bourbonheritagemonth #standishmaine #porchdrinking #mainenights #portlandheadlight #fortwilliams

Day 5 of #30daysofbourbon and whiskey Wednesday. Tonight’s pour is Heaven Hill 6 year old BIB, now I could ramble on about the nose,taste and finish, but I still couldn’t  express it as well as @sahlcoholic did in her post last night. So if you want a good review, check out her IG, I’ll just say this is another of my favorite lower shelf bourbons. #porchdrinking #bourbon #standishmaine #mainenights #bourbonheritagemonth #heavenhilldistillery
Day 4 of #30daysofbourbon and tonight it’s one of my favorite lower shelf bourbons Old Fitz BIB. The nose has vanilla and brown sugar, the taste is slight butterscotch and the finish is fairly quick. That being said it’s really hard to beat for the price, I’ve never seen it up my way but was lucky enough to have someone trade me a bottle. I’ll have to drink this slowly since it’s only available in Kentucky now. #porchdrinking #bourbon #standishmaine #mainenights #bourbonheritagemonth #heavenhilldistillery #oldfitzbib #bourbonbanter

Day 3 of the #30daysofbourbon #30daysofbourbonchallenge  Today was spent at the lake with family and some EH Taylor barrel proof. This is my favorite EHT, but really they’re all good. There’s brown sugar and butterscotch on the nose and a nice viscous mouthfeel, followed by vanilla and dark fruit. The finish is long and lingering. Truly a great pour. #porchdrinking #standishmaine #bourbon #ehtaylorbarrelproof #bourbonbanter #bourbonheritagemonth
