    I would love to join you all, and be part of this " working session". Just let me know when. I will send you a PM with contact info so we don't bog down this thread.

    Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    Cleveland Bourbon, Batch #1, 100 proof

    Nose: Pungent wood. Spray paint, sawdust, and wood glue. Table varnish with a touch of dry cedar. Am I in a wood shop?

    Taste: Raw, green, and vegetal right up front. An awful, chemical presence. Fingernail polish remover and paint thinner. Hot and full of ethanol for only 100 proof. A touch of pine and cedar. Notes of new make are evident throughout but pungent bark and fresh cut wood dominate. Unfortunately, these two undesirable notes don't cancel each other out.

    Finish: Lingering chemical compounds. Caulking glue and silicone. Short (thankfully) and dissipates quickly.

    Rating: One of the worst bourbons I have ever had second only to Wyoming Bourbon Batch #4. Loads of terrible chemical notes and overbearing, young wood. It's not often I would turn down a pour of bourbon, but add this one to that short list. Truly abysmal. Score is a 63.

    Willy Wonka can keep his "secret process" behind the curtain for all I care.

    I open this thread with much anticipation each time it gets bumped. That review definitely did not disappoint.

    Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    Sorry to disappoint guys but it's truly awful stuff. I call it like I taste it. Get your hands on a pour and you'll see what I mean. I dumped half my sample down the drain. :-/

    Well I suppose the Malort drinkers would like it.

    Does your scoring system go from 63 to 100?
