Hennessy VS Cognac
Cognac — Cognac, FranceTasted December 31, 2020A proper New Year’s Eve beverage. Starts off strong with flavors of vanilla, butter, and clove. Hennything is possible tonight.
Jameson Black Barrel
Blended — IrelandTasted December 25, 2020It’s like Jameson but better
Nut Liqueurs — Washington, USATasted November 16, 2020An interesting nocino. I get an almost overwhelming amount of umami on the nose and palate. Soy sauce, cinnamon, clove, maple- it’s not.... bad? I think?
Ron Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva Rum
Aged Rum — VenezuelaTasted November 10, 2020Don’t put ice in this- instead put in all of your unmet expectations from past lovers, former jobs, parents.... because this won’t let you down.
Bacoo 5 Year
Aged Rum — Dominican Republic, Dominican RepublicTasted November 9, 2020I enjoyed this with a bottle of coke on the side. Good winter evening sipper and goes splendidly with the fried chicken/waffle fries combo (pro tip: ask for the bbq sauce)Sneaky tiki
Monkey 47 Dry Gin
Modern Gin — GermanyTasted November 4, 2020Rarely would I ever consider sipping neat gin (not for lack of appreciation, I just love a martini) but this gem deserves a stage of its own. Bright lemon and floral notes lead the way for a smooth herbal finish. Delicious.
Sparkle Donkey Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — MexicoTasted November 4, 2020If sparkle donkey reposado was a colonial style musket, deliciously smooth vanilla and maple notes would be the gunpowder lovingly shoveled into the barrel. Shoot this at your enemies and turn them into friends.
