Heavy on the peat (it’s in the name after all) and lots of barrel flavors. I don’t think I’ve ever had an Israeli whiskey before. This was a good first one for sure.
Day 2: a Catoctin Creek Rye. Very spicy/peppery in the nose. Lots of fruit in the mouth. The tasting notes suggest marmalade, and I can definitely taste that. I did *not* taste the strawberry that was suggested.
I don’t know that I’d buy it again, but it was very nice.
Day one is a Wyoming whiskey small batch bourbon. The booklet promised caramel, vanilla cream, butter, and floral.
It’s a lovely pale gold color. The nose is grassy and a touch perfumey. I do indeed smell the butter and caramel. Not so much the vanilla.
It is a bourbon, so it has a bit of the corn flavor, but not as strong as in some bourbons. So I guess that means that they were heavier on the barley.
Anyways, it is very nice, and a great start to what I’m sure will be a wonderful month.

I’ve wanted one of these – a Whisk(e)y Advent calendar – for years, but this is the first year that Kentucky has permitted shipping whiskey into the state. So, I’m pretty excited about this! Hopefully I’ll post one of the bottles each day until Christmas. Stay tuned!
Bloody awful. 2 bottles of ringboree.
With steak and green beans. Delish. 30 b.o.r.b.r. at least. Mmm.
Always wonderful even when I spill it because there’s a fly in it. Gah!
36 bottles of RingBoRee
