Woodford Reserve Distillers Select Straight Rye

This bottle was labelled #3031 from Batch 0887 and bottled at 45.2% ABV.  The nose was very nice, herbal tea with mint and sweet vanilla notes.  The mouthfeel is fresh, light and oily, bittersweet on palate with more vanilla, candy, black coffee and dark chocolate.  The finish has peppermint, wood and grassy rye notes.  With water it gets sweeter, even honeyed, while heat builds in the finish with chilli spiced dark chocolate.  Overall very delicious; a light and subtle of straight rye.

    Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon

    I like this and I only found out after I made that decision that this is another wheated bourbon (like some of my other favorite bourbons Makers Mark and Pappy Van Winkle).  The nose has corn and fresh baked wholemeal bread.  The taste is spicy, with more wholemeal grain, some nutty toffee corn and a peppery finish with a hint of black fruits (plums, cherries).  Sorry Balcones.... but this is my favoriteTexas whiskey so far.  Must visit this distillery soon....
