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…

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…

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…

Three Chords Blended Bourbon Whiskey

A whiskey brought to you by musician and husband to Pat Benatar, Neil Giraldo. The bottle we purchased also happens to be a barrel pick by Julio’s Liquors in Westborough, MA. This whiskey blends 12 year old Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee whiskies. It is 73% corn, 20% rye and 7% malted barley. It was finished…

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……

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…

Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

My introduction to Eagle Rare was with their 17 yr which was exceptional but, let me tell, amazingly enough this one didn’t fall too far behind. This expression is aged for 10 years and has an abv of 45% Nose: oak, leather, honey and toffee Palate: oak, nuttiness, light sweetness Finish: spices, oak and sweetness…

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…

With Father’s Day just around the corner I joined Brandon Seier’s podcast Builds, Bullets and Brews to share gift ideas, any whiskey loving dad would enjoy. Now, if you’ve never listened to Brandon’s podcast before, then you are missing out. It’s a podcast dedicated to builds (DIY, fences, benches, tables, etc.); bullets (shooting, hunting, reloading,…

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…
