Sonoma West of Kentucky Bourbon 2 Review

Sonoma West of Kentucky Bourbon 2 Review

  Sonoma West of Kentucky Bourbon 2 is the wheated mashbill bourbon from Sonoma County Distilling Company. Aged in small barrels for a short period of time it carries that “Craft Whiskey” profile stronger than most young craft whiskeys I’ve had to-date which we’ll get into more in the review below, but first a word…

Edradour 10 Years Review

Edradour 10 Years Review

Edradour 10 Years is the flagship malt for the Edradour distillery owned by Andrew Symington who also owns the Signatory Vintage bottling company as well. In addition to their standard Edradour releases they also put out a peated whisky under the Ballechin line which isn’t a totally uncommon practice. Tobermory does the same thing and…

Old Whiskey River Review

Old Whiskey River Review

This interesting little bottle of Old Whiskey River was found by a buddy on a dusty hunting trip and opened a few weeks later when we sat down to play some board games and enjoy some of our dusty finds. The brand is still around today, but it’s not easily found in Hollywood so I…

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 23 Review

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 23 Review

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 23 is stop number 4 on Rhetoric’s climb to 25. Another year older and another year… oakier. Which is biggest difference I noticed between this and the 22. They both have similar profiles, just this one is a bit oaken and drier and it’s the first release of the Rhetorics where I’ve…

Laphroaig Cairdeas 2017 Cask Strength Quarter Cask Review

Laphroaig Cairdeas 2017 Cask Strength Quarter Cask Review

Laphroaig Cairdeas 2017 Cask Strength Quarter Cask is a release I’ve been dying to try ever since I first tasted the lovely Laphroaig Quarter Cask which. Even though it’s NAS, like all Caideas releases, and notably young it carries a depth and poise that runs deeper than its 5ish years might typically muster. This is…

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse Review

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse Review

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse is a limited edition that was only available at the distillery. Luckily I know someone at the distillery who was kind enough to send me a sample so I could give it a taste. Made from a smaller batch than normal I was most interested to see how this compared to the…

Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength Review

Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength Review

Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength started as a KY only release focused on the on-premise market and with its success it’s expanded beyond the bar and into the home… namely my home. Which is where I tasted this sample of mystery whiskey and I have to say… I like it. They should make this a regular…

Early Times Bottled In Bond Review

Early Times Bottled In Bond Review

Early Times Bottled In Bond is a new, affordable, release from Brown-Forman and no it’s not the same recipe as Old Forester. They’re close, but Early Times uses a different ratio of grains to give it a bit of a differentiator. Often known as a bottom-shelf-brand it’s about time Early Times gets some love from…

Paul John Brilliance Single Malt Review

Paul John Brilliance Single Malt Review

Paul John Brilliance Single Malt is fun and interesting. It’s a malt heavy whisky hailing from India and like its competitor Amrut they’re doing things right. It’s tasty, aromatic and fun. Founded in 1992 this young distillery is making waves in the whisky world and helping to push the Indian Whisky category further out onto…

1990 Rosebank 18 years Murray McDavid

1990 Rosebank 18 years Murray McDavid

1990 Rosebank 18 years Murray McDavid is the second Rosebank I’ve reviewed here on TWJ and it’s a nice improvement over the Signatory. Closed in 1993 Rosebank has seen the price of its whisky skyrocket over the last few years. Sometimes it’s not warranted and sometimes, like this, it might be. In K&L’s Words: 1990…
