Roxanne: I couldn’t quite put my finger on the scent of this, however I figured it out and it smells like a car wash. Another sniff reminds me of a car wash that’s operated by heavy chain-smokers. Upon my first serve, I didn’t feel there was anything on the pallet but there definitely was a burning in my nose. Second step, because you know you have to get used to it, and I’m pretty sure I have lung cancer and I’ve never smoked. It went up my nose and made me shake my head to try and dissipate the burn. Needless to say, this gem is going into the “guest” section of our liquor cabinet (a.k.a. bourbon we think tastes like ass). This section is ‘special’ as we will bring it out only on ‘special’ occasions, like when we have no bourbon for other people to drink - it’s a win win - we get host points because they feel ‘special’ and we keep the actually good stuff for us. #winning Tom: We’ve been watching this vampire show on Hulu. Its kind of dark all the time (they are vampires, after all) and they all live in this old house on Staten Island. There are old things throughout the house, bats and an occasional dead body. This whiskey tastes like I image their basement smells. Bat piss, dead body and old furniture…pretty much sums it up.
