December 12, 2012

My father-in-law asked if I would like to try a new whiskey for a review. I don’t know why people keep asking me that. They know what I’m going to say! YES! So he hands me the last pour of McKenzie Rye Whiskey made by Finger Lakes Distillery in Burdett, NY. Even though I am […]

Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream Review – 9 out of 10 Noses

October 27, 2012

Initially I was a little reluctant to do a Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream review for two reasons. 1. A very close friend of mine is a stakeholder in the company and 2. I don’t like cream liqueurs, e.g., Baileys Irish Cream. However, I was able to have a small sample at the Best Brands Holiday Trade […]

Angel’s Envy Cask Strength Bourbon Review 8 of 10 Noses

October 14, 2012

Last month while at the Best Brands Holiday Trade Show, I met Ryan Easterly from Angel’s Envy Bourbon. After taking a few sips of the original we started talking about, obviously, whiskey!

Review: Jim Beam Black Bourbon 4.5 Noses

August 19, 2012

I received an email that Jim Beam would be holding a tasting at one of my favorite liquor stores in the Nashville area, Red Spirits and Wine.

Wheeler’s Bourbon Praline Pecans Review

June 11, 2012

For a change of pace I decided to review Wheeler’s Bourbon Praline Pecans. This is made by Indianola Pecan House out of Indianola, MS. I grew up in southern Louisiana so I know a thing or two about pecans and pralines. When I was in grade school, my older sister would make batches upon batches […]

Review: Breakout Premium Rye Whiskey – 2.5 Noses

April 24, 2012

This is part 2 of the previous review on Jailers Tennessee Whiskey. Both Jailers and Breakout whiskies have been released by the Tennessee Spirits Company. Since these are put out by the same company, I had high expectations. Jailers was the first whiskey we’ve reviewed to receive a 5 out of 5 Noses so, again, high […]

Innis and Gunn Oak Aged Beer unofficial review

April 3, 2012

Ok, so it’s not whiskey. You’ve got me there. However, if you like beer, you owe it to yourself to try Innis and Gunn Oak Aged beer. I’ve had this a couple of times and thought it was worth mentioning. After all, whiskey is aged in oak casks, right? Well that’s what Innis and Gunn […]

Review: Corsair Wry Moon Whiskey – 3.5 Noses

February 3, 2012

Typically, I don’t like “moonshine” unless its mixed with 2/3 apple juice, has a stick of cinnamon and a big apple wedge in it.  “Heavy on the apple and light on the Tini, please.”  That being the case, I thought it would be best to have some help on this review.  Oddly enough, every one I asked […]

Review: Cabin Fever Maple Whisky – 4 out of 5 Noses…sort of

December 15, 2011

I first tasted Cabin Fever Maple Whisky last year at the Beer and Bourbon Festival in Nashville, TN.  If you’ve been to the Beer and Bourbon Fest (they are held all over the US) you know that it’s mostly like a big Frat party.  Without going into too much detail about that, let’s just say […]

Review: Jim Beam Devil’s Cut Bourbon – 4 out of 5 Noses

September 29, 2011

When a whisk(e)y is aged in a barrel some of it naturally evaporates.  This is what’s referred to as the Angel’s Share.  Since its trapped in a closed container, read – the barrel, the whisk(e)y evaporates into the grain of the wooden barrel and is thus lost forever.  “Not so fast!” exclaims Jim Beam.  Continue […]

Review: Lismore Single Malt

September 20, 2011

Lismore Single Malt Whisky – 4.5 out of 5 Noses The best contact info I could find for Lismore or for the parent company, William  Lundie & Co., was through the Whisky Portal.  Lismore Single Malt is a Speyside whisky.  They need a website, or I need to get better at using the Google. Packaging: Pretty […]

Review: Ardbeg Uigeadail

August 7, 2011

Ardbeg Uigeadail – 4 out of 5 Noses There’s a reason this whiskey was named “Whisky of the Year” in 2009 in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.  It’s an unbelievably smooth sip, followed by the usual heavy hit of smoky, rich flavor that Ardbeg is known for. The best way I can describe tasting Ardbeg Uigeadail […]
