Wow! It’s been about three weeks since my last post. I am sorry about not posting, the month of August has been a tad bit crazy, but I am back and today I am writing about a bourbon whiskey. A couple weeks ago my boyfriend and I, along with friends spent some time up in Lake George, New York. For our time up there I picked up a bottle of Noah’s Mill Bourbon Whiskey for us to try and enjoy.
Noah’s Mill Bourbon Whiskey is small batch bourbon produced in Bardstown, Kentucky by Kentucky Bourbon Distillers. It is bottled at 114.3 proof and it is a part of the Willett family. I wrote about Willett about two years ago and also included it in my holiday gift guide (click link to read more) because it was really delicious.
While in NY we had the bourbon two ways, straight up and in coffee.
Straight up Tasting Notes
Nose: oak, leather, tab bit of smoke
Palate: rye, oak, it’s a bit musty with subtle notes of spices
Finish: creamy but a nice lingering burn. It definitely has a bite to it
This whiskey is smooth and doesn’t feel like it is 114.3 proof, which to me is a very good thing, but watch out because it truly is 114.3 proof and it does have a bite to it. Online I saw this bottled priced at around $79 however, I purchased my bottle at $49.99 so pricing may vary.
I very enjoyed this whiskey and although I kept it to only dram in one sitting that night, we also enjoyed it in our coffee the next morning. We were on vacation so no judgment please; our spiked Noah’s Mill coffee was absolutely delicious. I do recommend this whiskey, but not to new whiskey drinkers. It is delicious but it does have a bite to it and to me, a long lingering burn after every sip. It may not drink like a 114.3 proof, but it is still very strong.
If you are new to drinking whiskey I suggest incorporating in coffee like we did or drinking it in a cocktail. If you aren’t new to whiskey drinking then I am certain you will enjoy it.
