Whiskey Dreams – Yellowstone

I am always looking for new whiskeys to try and found a good deal online for a trio of bottles. Which I promptly ordered, and which my wife of course signed for and opened the box.

She understands I like to true new things, but doesn’t quite understand why I have a shelf full of different whiskeys.

Last night I started with the Yellowstone bottle.

I did not plan on having as much of it as I did. It is a strange whiskey. I honestly wasn’t sure if I liked it on the first sip, which made me keep sipping, and then refilling my glass. It starts sharp, and spicy, and gradually mellows.

Overall Yellowstone earned a 78/100, and it is one of those whiskeys I can already tell is going to call to me sometimes. Some whiskey I just need to be in the mood for, and I already know that Yellowstone is one of those. Now I just need to find a another bottle to put on the shelf for one this one is gone.

Pros

  • Grows on you really fast.
  • If you like sharp and spicy with nice earthen tones you will really enjoy this whiskey.

Cons:

  • The opening salvo of sharp and spicy may put some new whiskey drinkers off.
  • Hard to find.
