Readers I hope all is well with your December and it is rolling along well. I must say this Whiskey Advent Calendar is coming along pretty well. The best part about it is that I’m still reading Tasting Whiskey bu Lew Bryson as I expand my knowledge of whiskey. I have enjoyed the joys of craft beer, wine, mead but now I’m learing about whiskey with my advent calendar.
I just cracked my December 4 selection which came to be Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select. I picked up a variety pack of Jack Daniels whiskies to build this calendar and it’s time to enjoy this sample. I using a Glencairn glass I purchased on a visit to Great Lakes Distillery. With the beautiful copper color my sniff gives me a mild woody aroma with notes of citrus fruits. A simple orange smell floats by warming me up as I think to sitting on a beach with this little guy. The feel is Tennessee smooth going down as I’m not tasting what my nose introduced me to, I’m getting a mild taste of spices but the wood comes trough stronger with this one then some others I’ve tried.
Now I’m not going to write notes for everyone I have. Note that I write notes, if you take it as a review please know we are different people and that means a lot. No trolling but if you have sipped on the same drink let me know what you got out of it, that’s cool stuff. Also this week I have enjoyed a Jim Beam, Knob Creek and Jim Beam Red Stag. I’ll write every few samples and keep you listed on what I consumed. Thank you for reading and give me some thoughts on whiskey and what someone should try as they adventure into new territory.
