  • NEW REVIEW!  I finally got my hands on a bottle of Old Ezra 7yr Barrel Strength.  Did it live up to the hype?  For my full thoughts on this bottle, click the link in my bio.

TLDR cliffs:  This is a good bourbon, one that I think everybody should try, but I was hoping for more.  I may have been swayed into unrealistic expectations by some of the other reviews I’ve seen, but I was optimistic this could go head to head with Elijah Craig Barrel Proof and other great BP pours, but at a lower cost.  In my opinion, it doesn’t quite live up to that standard.  It’s good, not great.  It’s a classic bourbon profile with plenty of heat, but there’s nothing overly complex or unique about it to make it really stand out.  It’s a great value at $40, and I’ll keep a bottle on hand for sure, but it isn’t going to knock any of my favorites off their spot at the top of my shelf.  #bourbon #whiskey

  • We’re doing a #battleofthebottles today for #taliskertuesday. ⁣
⁣
On the left, we have a 2013 Talisker 30 year old. On the right, is the 2007 Talisker 30 year old. ⁣
⁣
Both are right around 100 proof, and clock in around ~$700 each. ⁣
⁣
Only 600 bottles of the 2013 were ever made, while there are 2958 bottles of the 2007. ⁣
⁣
Both start out hot and with the classic Talisker taste: smoky, peaty, and briny intermingled with sweet and savory. ⁣
⁣
The 2007 neat was okay, but really opened up and was pleasant with a couple drops of water. ⁣
⁣
The 2013 by comparison was great right off the bat. I actually enjoyed it more neat than with water. ⁣
⁣
The 2013 beats out the 2007 in my opinion. It has a full bodied and oily quality that coats the mouth and warms your entire chest. In a side by side, it’s much more apparent that the 2007 is lacking in that overall quality.
⁣
Has anyone tried these bottles? What do you think?

  • Dram of the night: Johnnie Walker Green Label. Probably my favorite JW out there, which is the only 100% malt whisky in the JW line up. From where I'm sitting, it is better than the Blue Label at a fraction of the $$$.
