Tempus Fugit Kina L'Aero
Other Aromatized Wine — SwitzerlandTasted May 14, 2022Sensational perfumed aperitif wine. Starts with a sweet blossom and rounded berry fruits that evolves with a bitter finish. This and Cocchi Americano are my picks for a Vesper cocktail.
Other Brandy — GermanyTasted May 11, 2022Pure Cherry Bliss. No preservatives or sugar added just pure cherry distillate. Slightly sweet, slightly rounded and tannic from the skin of the cherry. A very fine Brandy great for cocktails or baking.
St. George Bruto Americano
Bitter Liqueurs — California, USATasted April 26, 2022Get ready for some major Rosemary
Mellow Corn Bottled in Bond Whiskey
Corn — Kentucky, USATasted April 22, 2022Not very interesting and very one note. Good for mixing though and incorporating buttery corn notes. Bottled in Bond and cheap can’t go wrong
Rhum J.M. Vieux Agricole VSOP
Rhum Agricole Vieux — MartiniqueTasted April 17, 2022Stupendous expression of Rhum Agricole. Will make a delicious Mai Tai. Very citrusy, bright, slightly grassy
Crown Royal Deluxe
Canadian — Manitoba, CanadaTasted April 12, 2022If the person you are trying to get into whisky says they don’t like whiskey then pour them this. Very bland and uninteresting but baby steps.
Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters
Bitter Liqueurs — USATasted April 10, 2022Artificial chocolate flavor and for some reason a strong black licorice note
Fee Brothers West Indian Orange Bitters
Bitter Liqueurs — USATasted April 10, 2022Back in the day when there were no orange bitters this brand was still pumping it out. To me Glycerin takes over the profile but there are sweet orange peel and flesh flavors here. Not bitter at all. Combine with one part Regans no 6 and you make Milk and Honeys house bitters. Combine equal parts Regans, Angostura Orange and this and you get Death and company’s House Orange bitters
Fee Brothers Grapefruit Bitters
Non-Potable Bitters — USATasted April 10, 2022Artificial Grapefruit flavor. Tastes like Bottled grapefruit juice
Fee Brothers Lemon Bitters
Fruit Liqueurs — USATasted April 10, 2022Artificial tasting lemon peel. Will add an oil zest almost like lemon candy to a cocktail
