This one is absolutely delicious and a total crowd pleaser. One sip and you’ll know why I went for the 5-Year Single Barrel Bourbon above all else from these kings of the hill in Alabama.
Nose- Maple syrup, caramel, baked bread & brown sugar
Palate, caramel apple, roasted almond & ripe banana. Full mouth feel with a creamy finish.
Finish- long & lingering with just the right amount of burn.
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!

I have only one bottle left of the cult Whiskey series from High West. These things always disappear in a hurry! Because I just received this shipment from Park City and I have so little, I didn’t even get to taste this one. But here is what the distillery lists for tasting notes:
Nose: Brandied cherries, fig jam, sun-dried raisins, dried orange peel, baking spice, French oak toast
Taste: Quince paste, strawberry rhubarb crumble, vanilla caramel, molasses, toffee, leather
Finish: Mulling spices, candied dates, black pepper, hint of spearmint.
49.3% Alc. (98.6 Proof)
Selecting a barrel of Makers Mark is different from any other single barrel. With Makers you get to blend your own barrel using different different wood staves of varying levels of char & wood. In blending these barrels, there are 1001 possible combinations. For mine, I used 3 baked American pure, 2 seared French Cuvée, 2 Maker’s 46, 3 roasted French Mocha staves. It was bottled at 112.1 proof in December of 2020. For me, this is hands down the best Maker’s Mark that I’ve ever tasted. Fragrant notes of toffee, caramel apple and coffee. Despite being high alc., it’s crazy smooth and seductive with vanilla and caramel notes and a creamy finish that delivers a super enjoyable slow burn.
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.
I picked out this barrel in August and have been itching to bring it in ever since. This is my go-to. Dark chocolate and orange marmalade notes, with rye spiciness adding a bit of flair to the overall flavor profile. In two words, this whiskey is utterly delicious. On the finish it offers a long, spicy and satisfying finish. Hints of tobacco leaf, rye spice, and mint appear before giving way to oak notes and a subtle and elegant floral before leaving the palate.
One of the most unique private barrels of bourbon you’re gonna find anywhere comes from our friends at Wyoming Whiskey. They make their own whiskey in-house instead of getting it shipped to them and finishing it. In doing so, they use winter wheat to churn out a medium length whiskey with notes of honey, burnt sugar, cinnamon and caramel on the finish. Delicious — but only 200 bottles.
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.
