Ridgeline Vermont Whiskey

This past weekend my boyfriend and I made a trip up to Vermont for the day. It was an impromptu trip that reminded me of two things: One, I hadn’t written a blog post in a while and Two, recently Frank (from the Omni Parker Hotels Last Hurrah) had us try a whiskey from Vermont…

Westland Whiskey Dinner and Q&A

Boston’s Omni Parker House is a hotel rich with history. Established in 1855 by Harvey D. Parker it is the longest operating hotel in the US. There are two main reasons why we always frequent this hotel: 1) The Last Hurrah bar in the hotel has the best whisky list in the city. 2) Frank…

Slow & Low: Rock & Rye 8-years

A Monday morning after staying up to watch Game of Thrones is always hard, due to that today’s review will be short and sweet so let’s get to it.

Jefferson’s Ocean Aged at Sea Cask Strength

If there was ever an award for the best traveled bourbon, I’d say that Jefferson’s Ocean would win that award. After being aged for about 6-8 years, this bourbon is placed on ships where it then travels for a few months. This means the bourbon further matures with the ocean salt before it is bottled….

George Dickel Superior No. 12 Whisky

My first tasting experience with George Dickel happened just a couple weeks ago and that was with their Superior No. 12 Whisky. I had heard do much about the brand that I finally had to try it!

Triple Smoke – Corsair Distillery

What does the way you walk say about you? To be honest, I have no idea what my walk says about me, but if a study was done on the way the three guys on the Triple Smoke bottle walked, I bet it would say that those guys are pretty cool dudes. I’ll be honest;…
