    10 Kinahan's Blended Irish Whiskey
    81
    Sweet
    If you'll notice on the bottle there is small print above the Kinahan's brand with the words "The Lord Lieutenant" above it. This refers to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland who loved this whiskey so much, he demanded that a vat be set aside exclusively for him and the letters "LL" signified his allotment. This sourced blended Irish whiskey is aged between 6-10 years and is non chill-filtered.

    9 Hankey Bannister Original Blend
    82
    Sweet & Fruity
    This unusually named whisky is derived from the wine & spirits merchants that created the blend in the West End of London, Mr. Hankey & Mr. Bannister. They were some of the first to take Scotch whisky out of Scotland and blend it elsewhere which they did over two hundred years ago. It is a blended whisky comprised of Lowland grain whiskies and Highland & Speyside Malt whiskies.

    6 Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon
    84
    Rich & Spicy
    Aged on average 6 to 8 years this replacement for the Turkey 80 was brought about for a couple of reasons. It has an ever so slight higher proof and a different blend for the 'mixology' crowd and some speculate that it was a way for Jimmy's son Eddie Russell to make his statement on the company. For whatever reason, the end result is still Turkey in the bottle, rye forward and properly priced. Formerly known as Wild Turkey 81, a package redesign and straightforward name change to Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon occurred in 2016. Done so to highlight the difference in formula, as many mistakenly thought it was an 81 lower proof version of the brand's famous 101.

    4 Monkey Shoulder
    86
    Fruity & Sweet
    The name Monkey Shoulder originates from an injury that the maltmen (those that hand turn the grain in a malthouse) would get as it would leave one arm hanging.

    1 Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon
    88
    Sweet & Rich
    Larceny is a brand extension of Heaven Hill's Old Fitzgerald line. According to their story, back in the day, John E. Fitzgerald used his privilege of holding the keys to Pappy Van Winkle's bonded warehouse, where the Old Fitzgerald bourbons were kept, to steal the best casks for himself. These became known as the "Fitzgerald Barrels." Larceny is a wheated bourbon made from a blend of selected barrels made in honor of this legend. It bears no-age statement and is bottled at 92 proof.
