This is a special bottling from Barton 1792 that whiskey collectors always are itching to get their hands on. Rich creamy notes of french vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and whipped caramel. On the mouth, candied pecans, walnuts, rye spice and gingerbread with butterscotch notes on the finish that is dry, very lengthy and silky smooth.
1792 Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a non-age statement bourbon which fits the criteria of the Bottled in Bond act that was established in 1897. This was #9 in Whiskey Advocate’s Top 20 Whiskeys of 2018 and they hit the tasting note on the head: “The high-rye recipe delivers the requisite cracked pepper and baking spices on the caramel-laden palate laced with licorice. This widely available bourbon seems to dwell in the age sweet spot, is nicely balanced with oak, and comes at a price that leaves little cause for hesitation.”
After a long wait, our own barrel of top-shelf Codigo 1530 Resposado. I’m very excited to release this one and those of you who know me know that I don’t get excited very often. This one is different. This barrel was aged 6 months in a medium char barrel previously used for top quality Napa Cabernet. 90 proof, the nose has that wonderful cooked agave smell with honey suckle and vanilla. On the attack, fresh citrus, black pepper and roasted pineapple. I’m not sure if this one can go into Margaritas. Maybe if you get more than one bottle. What a treat.
El Tesoro is one of the oldest family run Tequila distilleries still around. Most of the big houses are using a mechanical press now instead of the “Tahona” stone (A huge volcanic stone that is turned by mules). Usually this method is only reserved for the most expensive tequilas. To find one under $60 is pretty rare. This is my second of two barrels. The first one sold out in a few days. I tasted these side by side and think this one might have the edge of the two. All those lucky enough to score the first barrel, I’d love to hear if you agree. Don’t wait too long on this one with Cinco de Mayo around the corner!
This Single Barrel vintage barrel was put into oak in 2007. It’s bottled at 86.6 Proof and it has a ton of zest to it. It’s a bigger and bolder expression them some other years, bottled after only spending 8 years in barrel as opposed to some which are 9+. This was already showing exceptionally though which is why it got pulled early. Caramel, cinnamon, butterscotch notes with a long middle a good burn that leaves a little honey behind with the heat.
Most Very Old Very Small Batch bottles you see are from vintages much newer than this one– this one hasn’t been out in the market for quite some time. But years ago, I set aside two dozen for a cool project. That time has come. The signature bourbon comes from only 8-12 barrels of four different blending types with barrel aging as long as 20 years! This rendition has seductive aromas of honeycomb, leather, baking spices and caramel with toffee and chocolately notes and a nice smooth finish.
This Barrel was born in July 2016.
Proof- cask strength 113.2
On the palate it will smack you in the face with vanilla, pancake batter & maple. The finish is long & shockingly smooth for 113 proof. I would guess no more than 100 proof. I always think that’s the mark of a great barrel.Good luck, act fast & buy more than one because it will be gone for sure when you try to get another later.
There’s not much to say about this one other than it’s one of the best bottles of Bourbon in the world at any price and also one of the harder ones to get your hands on. This is actually from the last barrel that Eddie Russell and Wild Turkey ever made at 107 Barrel Entry Proof for the 16-year (switched to 110 proof in 2005). Eddie Russell had raved to me about his 2003 16-year, so I asked him for a few bottles to make sure I wasn’t missing out. I started with just 3.. the first one I’ve been working on slowly myself.. the other two are up for grabs!
100 Point Wine Enthusiast: Among all other distilled spirits, vodka stands alone – it is the cleanest tasting, most versatile choice for sipping neat, on the rocks or in a ZYR Vodka Martini. The ZYR recipe is velvety smooth with a clean, fresh and slightly sweet finish. Like many of the world’s other closely guarded formulas, ZYR is the result of select ingredients, recipe, process, controls and tradition. Because of ZYR’s proprietary 9-5-3 formula and the highest criteria for only the best raw ingredients, vodka has never tasted so clean or so smooth.
