Johnnie Walker Red Label
Tasting Notes Nose: Heavy alcohol wafts up to the nose, mixed with some pine needles. Palate: Sweet, candied like those gum balls you buy your child or niece at the local mall from those coin operated machines with the glass jar standing on stainless steel legs. Following the sweetness, it is chased by some peat that is very pleasant, but then comes some heat and burn. Finish: Some peat and more sugar. If only the peat was stronger.
Jack Daniels No. 7Jack Daniels No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey
Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey Mellowing drop by drop through ten feet of sugar maple charcoal. Mr. Jack arrived at work early one morning and tried to open the safe in his office. He couldnt recall the combination, so he gave that safe a good, solid kick. The blow broke his toe and infection set in, leading to the blood poisoning that killed him in1911. Sarah is avoiding this by not going to work at all!
Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Tasting Notes Jason's Scotch Whisky Reviews Nose: Damp leaves; big American oak; a whiff of turned over earth with a spade in the early morning in search of worms to take brook fishing; big time vanilla. Palate: Starts on sweet, that's the corn. Moves to oak, charcoal and vanilla. Finish: It's short. The sweetness leaves and it dries across the palate. Flavors of oak and vanilla dissipate almost instantly. Nothing lingers very long.
Jameson Irish Whiskey Blend Triple distilled Stored in sherry and bourbon casks Sine Metu meaning Without Fear is the Jameson family motto, awarded for their bravery in battling pirates on the high seas back in the 1500s.
Jameson Irish Whiskey Tasting Notes Nose: Flower like smells dominate Body Very light and smooth Palate: It has tastes floral in nature. The flavor immediately reminds me of the alcohol in Irish cream. The flavors are faint at best. Finish: Oaky, spice, grass, malt, clean, short, cool

Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon Americas name Brand Jason Debly On Bourbon Countless great, as well as utterly forgettable, westerns have actors like John Wayne or Clint Eastwood saddle up to the bar and order a bourbon that came in a little shooter glass. They would gulp it down and promptly wince in pain that would flash momentarily across their face. That is to say, Saddle up!
Wild Turkey Bourbon Tasting Notes Jason's Scotch Whisky Reviews Nose: Classic bourbon bouquet of big time vanilla and sweet corn rising up from the bottom of my brandy snifter. The scent of red licorice also makes an appearance. I like this! Palate: A rip roarin' entry of sweet corn and warm caramel, reminiscent of the hardened top surface of crème brûlée explodes across the palate. Rye, and hickory smoke too. Finish: The longest lasting flavors left lingering are of spicy rye, uncrushed peppercorns and, to a much lesser extent, vanilla. The flavors hang upon the palate for a considerable amount of time, about as long a rodeo cowboy on a bucking bull.
Bowmore Legend ScotchBowmore Legend Scotch Single Malt Islay Scotch
Bowmore Legend Scotch Islay – Highland – Lowland The barley goes through a germination process by being soaked in warm water. To stop this process the barley is put into a kiln that is heated by burning peat moss. The island of Islay is covered with peat bogs, so it is an ideal fuel.
Bowmore Legend Scotch Tasting Notes Nose: Gentle peat smoke, a little barley, touch of the coast. Palate: Gentle, a one dimensional malt with a vibrant youthfulness, lots of pep, but not too much in the way of complexity. Finish: Good malty sweetness, maritime, a touch of pine.
