    Re: Cleveland Whiskey revisited

    I ran out and picked up two bottles (I'm a sucker for low batch numbers and it doesn't get much lower than 001) and will be trying it out this evening. I'll post some tasting notes afterwards, but I'm not expecting a lot out of it.

    It was never easy for him. He was born a poor black bourbon whiskey. He remembers the days, sittin' on the porch with his family, singin' and dancin' down in Ohio.

    Some of those restaurateurs would love it if it were the color of a baboon's ass.

    Don't call them restrauteurs. Call them shitheads.

    Re: Cleveland Whiskey revisited

    I'm sitting here with my first pour of the Cleveland whiskey and I would agree with rndenks on most of his remarks.
    Nose: Smells like bourbon with the standard hints of maple and vanilla but not much else.
    Taste: First impression is nothing but heat. Mouth and tongue instantly start to tingle and that carries all the way through the finish. Once you get past the fire, you can really taste the wood (think EC 12) and very little sweetness. I will say that it does have a nice thick mouth feel.
    Finish: Keeps on burning with some dryness and it sticks around for a while.

    Overall: I would say that they nailed the wood flavor and mouth feel and I am actually surprised by that, but it still has too many characteristics of a young whiskey. I don't expect to visit this bottle very often except to give to friends who are interested in the fact it is "locally" produced.

    Re: Cleveland Whiskey revisited

    Good to see some more tasting notes on this, as opposed to more The Jerk quotes from Josh and I. If I find myself in OH soon, and see a bottle, I can't say that curiosity won't win out.
