Stellum Cask Strength Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
Review Date: 05-08-2021
The team at Barrel Craft Spirits have already made their mark as master blenders, producing some great batch whiskey and special releases. Now with their new project, Stellum Spirits, they show us their ability to produce a line of bottles with a consistent taste and drinking experience. A blend of 4-16 year bourbons from Indiana, Tennessee, and Kentucky, this expression is mature, layered and exciting. The nose shows heavy citrus, primarily orange zest, spices, and some roasted nuts. The taste continues with dried fruits, apple, and some vanilla. The finish shows off some nice oak and barrel notes. At almost 115 proof, this bourbon definitely brings some heat, and with that comes a flood of flavor. If the Barrel Craft line is a little out of your price range, good news...this bottle comes in at nearly half the cost. For their first expression at this price point, I'd call this one a home run.

Maker's Mark "Wood Finishing Series 2021 Release FAE-01" Kentucky Straight Bourbon (750ml)
Review Date: 04-25-2021
This latest in the Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series might be their best to date. Using only toasted American Oak staves in the finishing process added noticeable vanilla to this expression. We get a toasty creme brulee nose and some nice warm oak at the end, but the dominant flavor to the FAE should be no surprise to fans of Maker's. Cherry, Cherry and more Cherry.
