Are you ready for the holiday shopping season? True professionals know that now’s the time to browse the stores and check everything off the list. And if you have a Bourbon lover that you want to make happy this season, we’ve got you covered.
We have the best bottles to buy your friend, or even yourself. This selection has some unique picks that will make them giddy with excitement.
Right from the start, a glass of Eagle Rare will hit you with strong citrus scents mixed with aged oak that linger on the nose. The taste is fairly sweet, and you can almost pick apart a hint of honey and toasted brown sugar. It’s an interesting selection with a thick and creamy finish.
Eagle Rare is perfect if you want to dive into the world of single barrel Bourbon, and are looking for a well-rounded taste.
This bottle presents some subtle hints of new oak, grains, and raisins, and the taste adds a slight touch of vanilla into the mix. It feels like a slightly young whiskey but definitely gives off an exciting and lingering flavor at the end. We’d recommend you buy a bottle for yourself too, and bring it out on special occasions.
Ridgemont Reserve 1792
The first sip hits you with a pleasant sweetness, like caramel and vanilla, but then hints of rye and spiciness creep up slowly and overpower the palate, but in a good way. There are some citrus feels in it as well, to give it a fresher taste. The finish lingers around the mouth, just like you want a nice glass of Bourbon to.
Now, this is a bottle of Bourbon. Its aroma is filled with grain oak and toasted nuts, while the taste is rich, slightly sweet, and almost fruity, we’d say. Hints of woody aromas are also present, and the finish remains very rich and linger in the mouth, exactly like you’d expect a sip of Bourbon to do.
