Noah’s Mill, Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon has definitely been growing on me as a go-to drink. While my last offering to you, oh readers, was a soft and smooth 80 proof …
Noah’s Mill is a punch-you-in-the-face 115 proof. Drink it neat, or with the tiniest splash of water / one ice cube, to bring out some of its character. Hair-on-your-chest flavorful!
Aged 15 years, this is a small batch bourbon aged in wooden barrels and bottled by hand. You’ll be in the $50 - $70 range per bottle, but you’ll notice the superior flavor and taste, not to mention the smoothness, you won’t find in cheap or younger whiskey.
If you’re drinking it neat, the flavor is intense but not to the extent of being hot or burning going down. If you go back later and try it on different levels of water, you’ll have a pretty noticeable different in flavor. I recommend you give that a try: to me the flavors shifted depending, and I have friends that enjoy more water in it than I ended up with myself.
A big bourbon, robust flavor, great aroma - enjoy, my friends!
It brings me no joy (alright, some joy!) …
to be finishing up my last glass out of this bottle.
Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Straight
A great premium bourbon. Graceful on the taste buds, this is a very smooth American whiskey: gentle, with no burn going down.
Obviously if it’s the kind of night for a robust, spicy punch in the face, this is not your choice. There are other bourbons I drink to cover that mood.
Serve this with little ice in the glass, no water needed.
Smooth after taste, mild spice. Enjoy!
