Knob Creek Rye

I was recently in the mood for some classic whiskey cocktails, and realized it’s been a while since I tried a new rye whiskey. And, after having a generally pleasant experience with their bourbon, I was eager to checkout Knob Creek Rye. Knob Creek Rye is bottled at 100 proof after being aged for seven years, making it the youngest in Knob Creek’s line of whiskies. Although it’s a rye whiskey, its high corn mash bill adds notes commonly associated with bourbon. BOTTLE SPECS ❖ Spirit: Rye Whiskey ❖ Distillery: James B Beam Distilling Co. ❖ ABV: 50% (100 Proof) ❖ Aged for Seven Years ❖ Moderate Price TASTING NOTES ❖ Color: Amber ❖ Nose: […]

Glenfiddich 12 Year Scotch Whisky

Following the review of Batch & Bottle Scotch Manhattan a few years ago, I kept telling myself I should properly experience a Glenfiddich Scotch. And since I recently saw Glenfiddich 12 Year Scotch Whiskey available in 325 ml bottles, I no longer have any excuses. At this point, I’ve experienced a handful of products from William Grant & Sons, but Glenfiddich is where the story begins. After a year of manually building a distillery alongside his children, William Grant was finally ready to realize his dream of creating his own whisky in 1887. He named it Glenfiddich, the Gaelic word for Valley of the Deer, and it’s one of the few remaining […]

Angel’s Envy Bourbon

Now that I’ve experienced many historically significant bourbon whiskey brands, I was looking to try a more contemporary bourbon. And since I recently noticed this brand came in a 325ml bottle, I thought it was finally time to check out Angel’s Envy Bourbon. After a lengthy tenure in the Bourbon industry, which included the creation of iconic brands like Woodford Reserve and Gentleman Jack, Lincoln Henderson was finally ready to build his first and only independent venture. He was eager to experiment with various barrels and finishing techniques and enlisted the help of his son, Wes Henderson, to create Angel’s Envy in 2010. Their signature […]

1800 Blanco Tequila

Although we’ve tried a lot of blanco tequilas at this point, I’m still always on the look out for other affordable options for making cocktails. And since I’ve always been curious about 1800 Blanco Tequila, and the weather has been perfect for some refreshing cocktails, I thought it was finally time to check it out. 1800 Tequila gets its name from the year they began distilling and aging tequila. They still use the same recipe, and all of their tequilas are made from 100% Weber blue agave. 1800 Blanco Tequila is made using a blend of blanco tequilas to maintain a consistent flavor. BOTTLE SPECS ❖ Spirit: Blanco Tequila ❖ Distillery […]

Gentleman Jack

Although I wasn’t too impressed with Jack Daniel’s No. 7 last year, a few friends of my have mentioned they think other Jack Daniel’s products are worth a try. So, when I saw that Jack Daniel’s offers Gentleman Jack in multiple bottle sizes, I thought it was a great opportunity to see for myself. The production of Gentleman Jack is nearly identical to No.7, but with one additional step. Before bottling, the whiskey undergoes a second round of charcoal mellowing. BOTTLE SPECS ❖ Spirit: Tennessee Whiskey ❖ Distillery: Jack Daniel Distillery ❖ ABV: 40% ABV (80 Proof) ❖ Low Price TASTING NOTES ❖ Color: Amber ❖ Nose: Spice, Caramel, Vanilla, […]
