Mary’s Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Nose- Butterscotch and vanilla with a soft nuttiness
Palate- Surprising spice that sizzles and fills the mouth, light body with subtle sweetness that can’t overcome that heat.
Finish- The fire settles down slightly on the swallow but leaves its spicy vapor lingering on the palate.
Josephine’s Flat Head River Straight Rye Whiskey
Nose- Light and airy, with smells of fresh dirt and new grass
Palate- On the tongue additional earthy notes enter the scene. A pleasant yet unexpected taste of clean brisk air coming in through your nose and mouth while walking on newly mowed wet grass on a warm summer morning. That sounds strange but that is literally what the taste combined into.
Finish- The aforementioned flavors swirl together with a new caramel/maple friend before a gentle spice rises up just after the swallow.
Berties Bear Gulch Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Nose: cinnamon toast, baking spices, light smell of fresh pancakes with the mix of butter, bread, and maple syrup. Very mild green apple smell.
Palate: Burst of Brown sugar followed by light pepper leading into a maple syrup and butter taste. Reminds me of Pancakes again.
Finish: Long smooth finish, slides down easy. Maple syrup lingers and transitions slowly into pepper and oak.
