"Curb your En-booze-iasm" Tasting Notes:

Nose: Stroopwafel, maple syrup, cinnamon and an undeniable scent of honey.
Palate: This pour begins fruit-forward with suggestions of bramble berries and unmistakable cherry, like the bright red cherries you'd find in school fruit cocktail. The mid-palate has subtle cinnamon and nutmeg notes, which are followed by honey in back, accompanied by a nice surprise. There's some true age to this whiskey. While fairly subtle, it takes on the flavors often seen in the 15-25 year Heaven Hill and Stitzel-Weller releases, including rich dried fruits and just a little bit of grandma's attic, in a really good way. You'll have to dig a little bit to find it but once you do, it's what gives this one a place on the top shelf.
Finish: Medium in length, showcasing the sweeter notes

"Hennigan's" Tasting Notes:

Nose: Pink Mr. Sketch marker, etrog and cinnamon.
Palate: Bazooka (with the Hebrew cartoons, obviously), cherry candy, cinnamon start it off but then it gets really interesting. There are two mid-palate notes -- one is wintergreen and it's gentle but the larger one is green apple candy, like maybe a Jolly Rancher. The mid-palate lasts only long enough to leave an impression before it cruises towards notes of maple, burnt sugar and anise in the back.
Finish: Long. Persistent. Kinda like Saturday shul if you hit the bottle too hard on a Friday night.
