Knob Creek 25th Anniversary

We spent last weekend with friends in Long Island when at the 11th hour our friend’s dad brings out the Knob Creek 25th Anniversary bottle. When this happens, you know it’s time to sit, drink but most importantly, you know you are about to share some great memories with great company. This limited edition Knob…

Kinsey 10-Year American Whiskey

Kinsey 10-year is an American whiskey produced by New Liberty Distillery which is located in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

It is barrel strength, bottled at 117 proof and it is distilled at Luxco’s Lux Row Distillers. Tasting Notes Nose: oak,…

Woodinville Straight Bourbon Whiskey

While out in Seattle earlier this year I had a chance to visit the Woodinville Whiskey distillery. The distillery was started by two friends Orlin Sorensen and Brett Carlile who were mentored by David Pickerell, former Master Distiller for Maker’s Mark. Although Sorensen and Carlile are still very much a part of the distillery, in…

Women Who Whiskey – Bourbon/Whiskey

Whiskey, cars and BBQ are things that simply seem to go together. Fitting enough, that was the theme of this past weekend’s Women Who Whiskey event. And, the whiskey gals were gracious enough to extend the invite to the fellas, so I was able to bring my guy along. If you aren’t familiar with the…

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…

Kings County Distillery – Peated Bourbon

A bourbon bottle that is very unassuming (thank you Frank for introducing it to us) and also very easy to miss if you were looking in the bourbon aisles where ever you shop. But, if you are a bourbon fan and you’ve not tried the Peated Bourbon from Kings County Distillery, then you are missing…

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….
