n:  Honeycomb cereal.  Mulling spices in potting soil.

 

p:  Machine grease and oats.  Bit thin and less sweet than the nose hinted at.  One dimensional.  

 

This is probably a good intro to peated whisky as the peat is obvious but this is a gentle dram (sorry, Tomintoul.) 

 

B-/B

The nose has dry sherry and a touch of sulfur. The palate comes on sweet and then moves to sulfur.  Sulfur dominates the nose and palate, but the finish is fantastic and fairly long with tons of fruit, cherries, red fruit punch.

n:  Marmalade and antique wood.  Fabulous.

 

p:  Evergreen and orange slice candy.  Great although it's a bit thin and fast on the finish, likely due to the dilution.

 

God save the Queen!

n: nice, warm and semi-sweet, without much alcohol vapor. A lot of warm caramel and wood char. Standard bourbon nose, but not predominantly corny; very pleasant.

 

t: caramel covered kettle corn, oak char, and maple. Dry black raisins and vanilla wood in the middle. The rest is standard faire for bourbon, but this does it rather nicely.  [solid stuff, B.]

  ABV: 45.00 % Region:

Breaker Bourbon is sourced whiskey from Indiana (even though it does not state that anywhere on the bottle - tsk, tsk). Each batch is aged a minimum of 5 years. Probably a mix of corn/barley/rye for their recipe.

must.resist.the."smoke & mirrors".rant

 

n: caramel and salt water taffy. Old box of Cracker Jacks with a bit of spice. Some warm corn sweetness and toasted oak.

 

t: Halloween candy corn, strong cinnamon, and bit of sweet mint. Like a spiced caramel popcorn ball at the State Fair. The oak influence shows in the nice finish with a bit of anise. Cohesive, but runs hot (especially in the middle).  [B-/B, reviewed: batch #3]

The nose has very light fruit and some floral notes. The palate has nice, sharp, very dry malty notes, which I like a lot. The finish has abundant hay on the nose (pastures, meadows) but not much on the palate.

 

Strong on the palate, weaker on nose and finish, but overall good.

n: kinda nondescript nose. Mainly waxed vanilla and honeycomb. Bit of wood spice and cinnamon bread dough. Nice but subtle. 
 
t: follows nose but with a cherry jam note that's strong in the middle; like a cherry pop-tart. Baked green apples and cloves in middle. Vanilla sugar icing and creamy malt finish. Very smooth, pleasant and flavourful for an Irish.  [B/B+]
