More and more companies are now making it easier for people to have a cocktail at home without having the experience of a bartender. On The Rocks Premium Cocktails is one of those companies and I off course purchased their Old Fashioned. For the last couple days we’ve had 90+ degree weather. If you ask…

Michter’s 10 Year Rye Whiskey

This whiskey is not only one of their most limited produced products but it also took a three year hiatus. It was their then Master Distiller Willie Pratt who gave the go ahead in 2014 to re-release this whiskey and how grateful are we for this decision. The whiskey is bottled at 46.4% abv and…

Stagg Jr. Batch 15

Buffalo Trace went out with a bang last year as they ended 2020 with the release of this Stagg Jr. Batch 15 131.1 Proof. I’m here giving them a standing ovation because wow… this is super tasty. We were lucky enough to have a friend who gifted us this bottle, I know crazy. The retail…

Garrison Brothers Small Batch Boot Flask

Now here’s a Texas Whiskey brand I’ve not tried before. The distillery is located in Hye, Texas and was granted a distillers permit in 2006. I mean, who wouldn’t want to carry a flask in their boots. If I had cowboy boots, I’d definitely carry a flask in it, because why not. Nose: leather, oak,…

Ezra Brooks Distiller’s Collection

One of my favorite bourbons just happens to be Old Ezra 7. It’s a cask strength, quality bourbon that is completely affordable. In fact, that affordability in itself blows me away you should be able to find Old Ezra 7 in the wild for $35 -$40. Ezra Brooks Distillers Collection was just $34.99 and was…

Elijah Craig Small Batch

So, I was pleasantly surprised to see all the bad reviews for this small batch. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that! The whiskies I enjoy will not be enjoyed by others and vice versa. That is the beauty of whiskey. Here’s what I have to say, this whisky is not revolutionary, it’s no frills…

Maker’s Mark 101 Proof

You no longer have to fly to Kentucky and visit the Maker’s Mark distillery to try their signature bourbon at a higher proof. For a limited time only… or so they say, Maker’s Mark is releasing this bottling during their annual holiday release to liquor stores. Maybe we can thank Covid for that. The whisky…
