Oregon Spirit, Absinthe Original
Absinthe — Bend, Oregon, USA, USATasted July 27, 2020Bought a 50 mL bottle to try. Very spice and alcohol forward. Smacks you in the lips and tongue. Taste of cloves lingers for a while. Made an OK Sazerac, too, but not worth the price point for me.
Courvoisier VS Cognac
Cognac — Cognac, FranceTasted July 26, 2020This VS has a fruitier and sweeter taste than Hennessy’s VS, which is drier and more oaky. I prefer the Courvoisier VS.
Coffee Liqueurs — MexicoTasted July 25, 2020A necessity for White and Black Russians, but this classic coffee liqueur is over-the-top sweet and is best used sparingly.
Baileys Original Irish Cream
Dairy/Egg Liqueurs — IrelandTasted July 25, 2020The chocolate and alcohol flavored creamer that makes for an excellent addition to hot chocolate or coffee.
Chopin Potato Vodka
Unflavored Vodka — PolandTasted July 24, 2020Very smooth and not too much alcohol burn. Just the right amount of earthy and oily flavors for a potato vodka. Good neat or in a dry martini.
Pimm's No. 1 Cup
Fruit Liqueurs — ScotlandTasted July 24, 2020Drinking straight is not recommended, as it has a consistency and aftertaste of cough medicine. Our family’s Pimm’s Cup includes ginger ale, cucumbers, lemon, mint, and strawberries and is a signature of the summer. Makes more a delicious, refreshing, and not-too-boozy midday drink on a hot day.
Bitter Liqueurs — Lombardia, ItalyTasted July 23, 2020The bitter and citrus flavors are incredible. Negronis and boulevardiers are my jam.
Flor De Caña Centenario 12 Rum
Aged Rum — NicaraguaTasted July 23, 2020Well-priced, but would have liked more complexity.
Plantation 3 Stars White Rum
Silver Rum — Multiple CountriesTasted July 22, 2020Strong banana and vanilla flavors. Good value, but works better in cocktails than neat.
Genepy le Chamois
Herbal/Spice Liqueurs — Chambery, FranceTasted July 20, 2020Herbal and sweet in all the right ways. Delicious chilled and neat.
