This week here on Instagram I shared a Reel on great whiskey stocking stuffers. Our good friend Dan (Thank you Dan!) gave us this mini trio of Clyde May’s whiskey and why not try it, to see if they’d make a good stocking stuffer.
The Straight Bourbon Whiskey I have written about before so won’t include the notes here. You can find that review on Instagram. The other two were new tries.
Original Alabama Style
Nose: caramel, pepper, and fruit
Palate: caramel, oak, vanilla, and pepper
Finish: smooth and lightly sweet
Straight Rye Whiskey
Nose: leather and oak
Palate: spiced, vanilla and citrus
Finish: strong with a bite
Out of the three, the Original Alabama Style was my favorite. It was the smoothest of the three and the one that had a better tasting notes. The other, well, not so much. If ranked, Original, Straight Bourbon and then the Rye. The Rye was my least favorite. It had a strong bite, and I couldn’t finish the dram.
The set is perfect for a person who truly loves this whiskey and a person that wants to try it without having to pay full price. Personally, I wouldn’t purchase a full bottle of any of these but I’m glad I had the chance to sample them these minis.
Note: The contents on my blog are solely my opinion. To me every palate is different! Although I may or may not like a product, I always recommend for people to try it and make up their own minds.
