Bulleit Manhattan Cocktail

If you recall, not too long ago I wrote about the Bulleit Old Fashioned ready-made cocktail (bright orange bottle you can’t miss). Now Bulleit’s Manhattan ready-made cocktail (in a bright green bottle) is being tasted and reviewed. Using their own whiskey, this Manhattan is made with straight rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters. Nose: rye…

Father’s Day 2022 Whiskey Gift Guide

We are officially 19 days away from Father’s Day. If you don’t have a gift yet and have a whiskey loving dad, I am here to help. Let’s get started, the list below is broken down by price range. Most of the prices below are a range of costs (+/-), as prices may vary depending…

Elijah Craig Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup

Now here’s a non-alcoholic Elijah Craig product I came across by chance. This little bottle which cost me just around $4, is simply a syrup to make an Old Fashion with. Unlike ready-made cocktails, you need to have a whiskey to use this one with. The bottle indicates it was specifically to highlight the notes…

Bulleit Old Fashioned Cocktail

Now here’s a bottle that’s hard to miss if you’re perusing your local liquor store shelves. It screams to pick me up and with the warmer temps just around the corner, who doesn’t want a ready-made cocktail. Using their own whiskey, Bulleit now offers two ready-made cocktails. This Old Fashion and a Manhattan Cocktail (in…

Elijah Craig – Toasted Barrel

Here’s one of those whiskies we would always search for but could never find. Until we visited friends in Virginia. We not only got a chance to taste it but also got to take home the bottle (Thanks Kevin A). For this expression, Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon is used as the base. After the…

Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Sour Mash

Very recently a friend of ours sent us this little gem. Thank you, Mike! ETL is an allocated bourbon and has a msrp of $54.99 but sadly most must look to the secondary market to find it. Nose: vanilla, leather, and clovesPalate: spices, vanilla, and honeyFinish: spices and warming finish This whiskey is solid. It’s…

George Remus Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

This George Remus bottle was the last bottle I got through my Flaviar membership which ended last month. It’s named after renowned prohibition bootlegger George Remus. Although the label indicates that it’s a Kentucky Straight Bourbon, this whisky is MGP and is distilled in Indiana. Nose: vanilla, oak, and sweetnessPalate: vanilla, caramel, and pepper/spicesFinish: lightly…

Rabbit Hole Boxergrail Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

The saying goes “don’t cry over spilled milk,” I counter however that you do cry over spilled whiskey. Out of all the years of being an amateur whiskey blogger this is the first time I’ve broken a whiskey bottle. Yes, this went down as I tried to take product pictures. But… after a few tears…

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch B521

Before I get into it, this is a 12 year bourbon. The letter “B” indicates the order it was released that year. The first number the month it was released and the last two numbers indicate the year. If you thought batch A121 was unusually low in proof at 123.6 compared to other batches we’ll……

On The Rocks Premium Cocktails: The Old Fashioned

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…
