Heaven's Door Straight Rye Whiskey: a fantastic addition to the world of Rye Whiskey.
The Balcones Texas Rye 100 Proof: a very decent whiskey from Balcones; wonderfully balanced with rich flavours and an attractive price tag.
The Maker's Mark Cask Strength: a damn good Kentucky Straight Bourbon!
The Johnny Drum Private Stock: an intensely flavourful bourbon for a fair price.
The Westland American Single Malt Whiskey: a simple and very well made American single malt.
The Balcones French Oak Single Malt: an absolute cracker of a single malt. Grab as many as you can.
The Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Decades: probably the spiciest bourbon we've ever tried.
The Ironroot Republic Hubris Corn Whiskey: complex, strong and full of flavor; another home run for the Likarish Brothers down in Texas.
Heaven's Door Tennessee Bourbon; a very well made Tennessee bourbon. We had made some premature judgements about the seriousness of this brand but we were totally mistaken. These guys are out to make great whiskey.
Blanton's Original Single Barrel; a wonderfully smooth and intense bourbon. A bit more complexity (that's unfortunately not there) would have elevated it to a "must have" status.
The Ironroot Republic Promethean; a powerful bourbon from the Texas based distillery; once you add some water it really opens up and releases its wonderful flavors.
The Balcones True Blue 100 Proof Straight Corn Whisky; an exceptional corn whisky from Balcones with an intense and rich taste.
The Ironroot Harbinger Straight Bourbon Whiskey; a wild horse of a bourbon. It needs time and patience to tame it but once you do it will reward you with complexity big flavors. A beautiful bourbon.
Colonel EH Taylor Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon; a simple and straight-to-the-point bourbon with rich flavors.
The Tincup 10 Years Old; a solid American whiskey with rich notes of vanilla, caramel and spice.
