General description

If you like heavy, woody, nutty bourbons, this one is for you. Notes of molasses and nuts come through on the nose, the palate brings heavy, dark, sweetness, and finishes with charred wood. Nice transition of flavors, but the finish is shorter than I would like it to be

Nose

Nutty, molasses, toffee

Palate

Nutty, thick mouth feel, smoky sweetness, salted dark chocolate, easy drinking for the proof

Finish

Oak, sweet char, cinnamon

General description

Cinnamon and cloves on the nose, smooth and creamy yet spicy, caramelized brown sugar and cinnamon on the palate, long spicy oak finish. A splash of water adds oak to the nose, vanilla to the palate, and mutes the spicy finish a little.

Think Fireball if Fireball wasnt just a trashy white girl shooter whiskey. It's a bomb of cinnamon and spices, with a nice nutty vanilla finish. The alcohol heat is something to get past, though. Or you could add little water....but it also mutes the flavor as well with this one.

Color: Chestnutoloroso sherry

General description

Sweet, caramelised brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, wood spice and tannines. Rich and full bodied. The alcohol only shows up as warmth in the short aftertaste, when it comes to general burn it's surprisingly abscent. some dark fruit on the aftertaste as well

Absolutely outstanding neat. Surprisingly, adding one small ice cube lit it on fire.

Ich hatte die 1. Release des "Noah's Mill", die noch in der Willet Brennerei 1980 produziert wurde und Ewigkeiten später von " KBD" abgefüllt wurde. Der Whisky war leider total " überlagert". Ca. 10-12 Jahre wurde dieser Bourbon im Eichenfass geknechtet. D.h. die vorhandene Süße und Vanille wurde von derben, bitteren Fassnoten totgeprügelt. Faber-Castell Bleistifte in HB lassen grüßen...

General description

Operating as a non-distilling producer, Kentucky Bourbon Distillers (KBD) purchases bourbon from other distilleries, ages it in their warehouses, and bottles it from their extensive family of labels (Rowan’s Creek, Kentucky Vintage and Willett Distilling Company to name a few.)  Noah's Mill Distilling Company is a KBD company.

VITAL STATS:
Small Batch Bourbon
Batch No. 18-8
Age: NAS (Since 2012 the age statement is no longer reported)
ABV: 47% (94 Proof)
Distillery: Various and unpublished; made from sourced barrels (Bottle Notes indicate: KBD/Noah's Mill Distilling Company)
ABV: 57.15% (114.3 Proof)
Mash Bill: Unknown (sourced bourbon)

APPEARANCE:
Note: Sold in a light green glass bottle.  Light in color ... Tawny; The light color may indicate minimal barrel time. 

LOOK, BALANCE, BODY AND FEEL:
I wanted to like this bourbon as I enjoyed the Willet Pot Still Reserve and looked for the good in this one as well; I can report impressive legs in the glass and a creamy mouthfeel, but in the end this bottle of Noah's Mill, Batch No. 18-8 is unbalanced and unrewarding.

I will not likely purchase another offering from Noah's Mill Distilling Company and will be wary of other KBD offerings.

Nose

Alcohol hits the nose first on this release and is so strong it masks all other flavors.  After a short time in the glass, I was able to discern orange peel followed by a unusual cacophony of fruit: banana, prune and raisin. Subsequent sniffs coaxed caramel and vanilla, then yeast, baking spice, and cinnamon filled baked goods. Nut meat or wood of any sort was never detected throughout the four ounce tasting.  I am sad to report there is something amiss with this bourbon.

Palate

Because of the initial alcohol on the nose, I expected more of the same however the first sip was warming and mellow but with a grassy, citrus bite.  More sips brought out acidic orange marmalade and ginger spice.  There is a hint of bitter walnuts, and as on the nose, no woodiness whatsoever.  This itteration of Noah's Mill tastes unfinished, weak, and is quite disapointing.

Finish

Short with only a little lingering warmth and an unpleasent green vegatabley aftertaste.

A decent overall bourbon, but nothing stands out. Happy to have given it a try but won't buy again.
Best neat.

My new favorite, I went back and bought 2 more bottles. Excellent flavor, and very easy sipping consider it is 115 proof. Leaves an awesome after taste for a long time after.

peppery spice with caramel vanilla and butterscotch. higher abv gives some punch neat. water tames it and allows the flavor to favor towards the sweet notes. medium finish.

can't go wrong with the price. The heat is so subtle and effervescent of creamy, butterscotch, and caramel. just add a few drops water and it transforms.

General description

Has a lean, corn nose - a small dash of water broadens it up a bit. SUPER zingy from the 57%, spicy up front. After water it has a slow and warm roll that's rather simple. Dried fruit (apricots?) holds a lingering taste. Solid yet simple.

peppery brown sugar and vanilla. pretty thick on the oak which plays nicely. very mild corn for a true bourbon, tastes more like a bourbon aged malt.

With my love of Pot Still, I've been trying all the Willet line. This one is good but still a far 2nd place. Great oak smell and taste, vanilla and maybe a bit too much cinnamon.
