Whiskey Dreams – Winchester Extra Smooth

I like to try new bourbons. Sometimes I find things that surprise me by how good they are, and other times I end up with something like this Winchester Extra Smooth Bourbon which left me feeling cheated that I spent $23 dollars on it.

The first sip made my eyes go wide as the whiskey slid over my tongue and hit the back of my pallet. It feels thin and has a strange aftertaste that is hard to describe, other than it reminds of me of my days working at a chemical plant and accidentally getting a whiff of petroleum products that made your throat burn.

Overall, Winchester Extra Smooth Bourbon earned its 15/100 score and I’m still shivering at the memory of the taste.

Pros

  • Maybe you can use it to clean tools?
  • Both my cats wanted to be in the picture.
  • Six points better than Hilly Billy

Cons:

  • Thin mouth feel.
  • Strange unpleasant aftertaste.
