Aged brandy that will blow an arrow through your appleseed

Black Dirt Distillery is Warwick’s finest in fancy specialty hooch sauce. Apple sauce, that is, in the case of the Apple Jack for which the upstate New York distillery is known for. Carrying on the tradition of an American spirit with history predating Prohibition, each batch is a little bit different. However each bottle stays true to [...]

A red hibiscus & dragon wormwood tweak on tradition

Corsair Distillery describes their hooch as “hand-crafted small-batch ultra-premium booze for badasses,” which basically means that we not only like their style, but we’ve got our cups held out for the pour. While the distillery has an interesting mix of spirits available, there is something a little notable about the liquor-ishy whollup of a good [...]

Massachusetts-made Privateer Rum is kind of on the Plymouth Rock tip, priding itself as being a “true American rum”.  The claim is that the changing seasons [...]

Worthy of turning ordinary tasting notes into a rum diary

From stocks that range in age from 16 to 23 years, Paraíso Fucundo X.A. rum is the finest stock in the Bacardi cellars. 80 proof with a Cognac-cask finish, Paraíso proudly claims to be worthy of rivaling any scotch — a dubious statement, but a possible one for those who favor sugar cane spirits. The flavor is [...]

Because dead men tell no ales, but they love whiskey

Since opening their doors as a brew pub in 1988, Rogue has grown with the craft-beer revolution out of Oregon. It has since become one of the top ales to put hair on a man’s face, the Platinum medal-winning Dead Guy Ale. Dedicated to crafting fine booze, it makes sense that spirits be added to the pallet. [...]


Koval, a small distillery out of Chicago that’s been in the whisky biz since the 1800′s, knows how to keep things kosher — quite literally— when it comes to organic, fine-grain whiskies. While Koval makes a wide array of spirits, their millet whisky is a little something special in that it is an unusual, and thus notable, [...]

Taste buds be warned, this is a devilishly good 114-proof whisky

Dip your finger into the amber liquid (don’t be shy, you’re adventurous, right?), drop it onto your palm and rub. Now bury your face into your hands and smell the sweet, yet burnt almond notes emanating off your hands. The sensation almost makes you want to repeat again, until you realize that the Ardbeg Corryvreckan [...]
