    We usually enjoy pistachio products but, this one didn’t live up to our expectations. It was quite earthy, thick and it sort of tasted more like the skin of the pistachios. Is it perhaps too “traditional“ for the international market or, is it really missing something?

    A good starter bourbon, not too much complexity, just enough sweetness and smokiness, smooth with a light burn, I finished it on the rocks.

    Much better than expected! It’s actually very smooth, just the right amount of sweetness, classic Dewar’s flavors blended nicely with the rum nuances.

    It’s a good basic Gin, it works well with cocktails but, it’s nothing extraordinary.

    Delicious Tsikoudia, or Raki from Crete, very aromatic and fruity, maybe a little sweeter than Babatzim Tsipouro (Without Anise), with a light burning sensation but still quite smooth palate.

    Delicious Woodford Reserve expression, smooth, good presence of wood, smoke and sweetness, perhaps, just a little too sweet but with enough complexity and spice to keep it interesting without being overwhelming.

    This a neat London Dry Gin, it covers the basics with an extra burst of citrus, definitely not complex but, smooth enough to make a clean cocktail enjoyable.

    Definitely citrus forward, you can taste the orange zest and it doesn’t taste artificial. You might even get the bitter aftertaste of the orange peel and it isn’t syrupy. It should work well on ice but, you can probably make nice cocktails with it too.

    Very nicely executed 12 YO. Good amount of peat and warmth with just enough oak and a hint of sweetness to keep it balanced.

    Very bold, lots of sherry, dry fruits and burnt caramel, no peat but, quite smooth. Almost like a Cognac?
