n:  Cheap fake wood furniture.
 
p:  Well, this is pretty dull.  It's like wood finish lost its flavor (does that make sense?)  It's like a blander cheerio.
 
Pretty bold move making this the House Targaryen (possibly to spur sales on a hohum dram).  I thought I was getting Balerion but I got Puff.

Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon
Added on Tuesday, Apr 16, 2019 at 09:28 AM
  Bottler: Willett
  Age: NAS yrs Type: American
  Vintage: N/A Subtype: Bourbon
  ABV: 47.00 % Region: Kentucky
  Price: $52 Availability: Better Stores
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon is brand of a bourbon whiskey produced in Bardstown, Kentucky by the Willett Distillery. It is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey brand introduced in 2008 and bottled at 47% abv, with 8–10 year aging. 

Willett Pot Still Reserve bourbon started life as a single barrel expression of other distiller’s bourbon. For recent releases, the single barrel expression has been dropped in favor of small batch. In addition, while it seems likely that Willett’s own bourbon will eventually make its way into their namesake brand, current bottles likely still include sourced bourbon.

Breakdown: 72% corn, 13% rye, 15% malted barley

nose: dried floral and toffee in a leather sack.

 

taste: dried citrus, nutmeg, and caramel. Raw peanut and cherry cola syrup. Gets kinda hot, then morphs into brown sugar sweetness. The finish is nice and oaky with a bit of herbal spice and caramel.

 

I'm not into the awkward bottle design and not sure why this is allocated.  [B-/B]

Warm maple syrup and dank wood. Cooked mushrooms and charred marshmallows. Sour plums and peppers

Rye spice and herbal stuff. Very dry with a peppery finish.  Between B and B+ here but I'm a sucker for old ryes.

Parker's Heritage Collection 12th Edition - Orange Curacao

  Bottler: Heaven Hill
  Age: NAS yrs Type: American

  Price: $90 Availability: Better Stores
Barrel Finished marks the 12th edition of Parker's Heritage, a limited edition edition whiskey named in honor of the late Heaven Hill master distiller Parker Beam. This is the second Parker's Heritage release made in collaboration with master blender Alain Royer who assisted Parker in the creation of Cognac Barrel Finish. Barrel Finished is made from bourbons aged for 7-8 years on the upper floors of Rickhouse Q. The bourbon was then transferred to barrels that previously held orange curaçao liqueur for four months before bottling.

n: smells nice - full of orange peel and waxed wooden furniture.

 

t: overly sweet and sappy - the overall candy sweetness hits like a punch. Orange candy, caramel, and dried apricot in middle. Everything is drowned out by the orange Curaçao. A dense and oily mouthfeel is the best aspect of this release. Finish is just more of the same orange sweetness and a bit of sour oak.

 

Just get higher proof bourbon and add a bunch of orange bitters and save yourself a lot of time + money. Was not my thing at all...   [C/C+]

n:  Honey nut cheerios, melted parafin

 

p: Generically malty.  Plain wheat bread.  Finish is a bit hot and undefined.  It's nothing to get excited about, but you could sip a lot of this and not feel worse for it.
