Jefferson's Presidential Select 21 Year Bourbon

I really miss my old bottle of the 17.

This is a whole different beast from the 17 and 18.  Jefferson's whiskey is all sourced.  This one is sourced from a rye influenced mash bill instead of wheat.  Thanks Sku.  It's pretty good but $120 is too much.

On the Jefferson's scale, it's a Mr. Bentley.

Captain Morgan Sherry Oak Finish

This product was received for review.  My favorite thing to read on a label is For Research Only.

Stretching my wings a bit here for a spiced rum review.  Fortunately, I have a Manhattan mixed up to cleanse my palate.

Compared to the regular Morgan, this Rum is both more and less.  It is more, because it does taste better neat.  The sherry finish is quite nice and I enjoy sipping it.  It is less because I have to wonder why anyone would bother to finish a SPICED rum since it mutes the spices.  If you like this sort of thing, and are curious.  Go for it.  It's only $20 and you are going to mix it with coke anyway.
