Daniel Bouju Tres Vieux "Brut de Fut" Premier Cru de Cognac Grand Champagne Cognac 750ml
Review Date: 01-15-2018
This Cognac has a deep dark color that reflects the extended aging. Delicate aromas lead to a Cognac that is complex and full bodied with concentrated dried fruit flavors that are not sweet but lively and tasty. There is a lot going on here. This is one to sit down with, sip and think about.

Daniel Bouju "Royal" Brut De Fut Grand Champagne Cognac (750ml)
Review Date: 01-15-2018
I tasted this Cognac once straight out of the bottle and once with a splash of water. I enjoyed it most with a little water. There are soft and delicate aromas with a hint of sweetness. In the mouth it is round and rich but not heavy, with hints of dried fruit flavors that are delicious, on the dry side and inviting. This is for those looking for a classic Cognac but one without out too much sweetness.

George Dickel "K&L Exclusive" 9 Year Old Single Barrel #L7234K1004 Tennessee Whiskey (750ml)
Review Date: 11-03-2017
I just tasted barrel 1004 and barrel 1008 at the same time. The difference between these single barrels is pronounced. Barrel 1004 has a nose of caramel but it is nuanced and subtle. In the mouth it is on the drier side with the influence of the wood aging showing, adding subtle spice and savory notes. While it is fun to taste the different barrels and how they all age differently, I think that it is good to remember that they are all delicious from a great distillery.

Paranubes Oaxacan Agricole Rum (1L)
Review Date: 07-14-2017
Interesting and delicious, this rum is a real surprise for me because I never thought that I would be tasting a rum agricole from Oaxaca. The nose is intense and expressive with grass and herb smells. This leads to soft fruity flavors with a hint of sweetness but over all this rum is on the dry side. Tasty alone ( if you like the agricole flavor profile) it should make great cocktails.
