Always trying to stay in good spirits :) I’m searching for the ideal bottles of each spirit for my home bar. This is my opinion on what’s available in Ontario.

    I received this bottle as a very generous Christmas present from my boss, thank you Frank! I really haven’t had many cognacs but this is definitely the best one so far. Oak, a hint of vanilla, rich dark lingering stewed fruit and light grape tannin dryness. Again I’m not cognac expert but to me this tastes like a more refined Remy Martin VSOP, not nearly as dark a profile as 1738. Not available in Ontario.
  5. Tequila Ocho Anejo “Los Fresnos” 2013

    Tequila Añejo — Jalisco, Mexico

    Middle of the road in the Johnnie Walker range. Only slightly more richness than Black Label but not nearly as rich as the 18 Year. More floral/herbal/honeyed than most of the range. $86 in Ontario.
    86.0 CAD per Bottle
  8. Johnnie Walker Double Black

    Peated Blend — Scotland

    Regular Black Label should taste like this. It’s got the same profile but it has much more richness and weight behind it. It still doesn’t have a ton of depth but while Black Label comes off a bit thin this feels like it has purpose. Honey and soft floral spice, slight dark fruit sweetness and rich smoke. Not available in Ontario."

    Tequila Mixto Gold — Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico

    Over-sweet roasted agave overpowered by a huge hit of pepper and raw herbal spice. $30 in Ontario.

    2.0 out of 5 stars
    Oak, honey, soft sherried dark fruit depth, light floral spice and acidic tree fruit/citrus. I can see why people like it but it’s a bit acidic/spicy for my taste. $75 in Ontario.
    75.0 CAD per Bottle
    GRAND SPIRITS Distillery
