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.
- Grows on you really fast.
- If you like sharp and spicy with nice earthen tones you will really enjoy this whiskey.
- The opening salvo of sharp and spicy may put some new whiskey drinkers off.
- Hard to find.
