A shave & haircut, a smoke & pancake, a scotch & a suit

Dewar’s already knows what a real Father’s Day for a drinking man is all about. They have done Father’s Day before, if you recall. This year, instead of just making your dad some pancakes or buying him a tie (unless it’s a Le Noeud Papillon “La Belle Dame” Bow Tie, naturally) set up your Distinguished […]

Ardberg, Macallan & more aged in sherry casks

Aged in the smaller casks that once held some of Spain’s finest sherries means whisky that is dark, brute, dark, bold, dark, dark and dark. Also, just to clarify, it’s very dark. The Darkness! is a series from Scotland’s finest, be it the 21-year-old Ardberg finished in the casks of Oloroso sherry or the Macallan […]

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. […]

Slow-food certified, 100% kosher & naturally gluten free

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, […]

Aged to perfection in delicately burnt oak barrels

If you ever thought the only real difference between whisky and moonshine was the bathtub your booze was brewed in and the letter of the law, think again. Ole Smoky, Appalachian hootch bottlers and the official moonshine of the Talladega Superspeedway (makes sense, seeing as NASCAR came from illegal moonshine runners), age their moonshine in […]

Masters Of Malt make you into consumer & understudy

The Reference Series is the next level of sophisticated drinking. This series of malted whiskey blends sets out for a bottle-paced experiential immersion into the long life of a whiskey, with each blend being bottled (and marked as such) at different points in the aging process. The taster’s experience is thus a deliberate sensorial study in whiskey […]

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 […]
