So I got a bit busy, and haven't had a chance to actually sit down and do some good tastings of anything recently, so I'm going to recap everything I have tasted recently, basing the reviews on what was going on at that moment.
Ancient Age 90 proof - sitting in a kitchen, all I remember is the smell of alcohol. But hey, it was $12.00. Need to explore more budget bourbons to find something workable.
Hudson Bay Baby Bourbon - nice surprise. DJing a party filled with cheap beer, and some guy walks in with a small bottle of this. It was a party for the Kentucky Derby, and we had been drinking Mint Juleps made with Bulleit since 3pm, and I'd switched to drinking it neat by the time this came around. Also, I should mention, Nashville was flooding, and the basement of the house I was in was had flooded. Shit was crazy.
They poured me some of the Hudson Bay, which I flipped out on the guy when I saw it, since I didn't know we had it around here. Really, my tastebuds were shot, and I was kinda drunk, so I can't really comment on how it actually tasted, except that it was sweeter than I expected, and pretty tame, short finish.
