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.

Adictivo Whiskey

While there are thousands of whiskies from all over the world, I don’t recall ever encountering one from Mexico. However, given the increasing demand for whiskey, distilleries are starting to diversify. Adictivo Tequila is a recent example, and has recently launched Adictivo Whiskey. Adictivo Whiskey is a small-batch single malt whiskey produced and bottled by Vitro Tequilera in Jalisco, Mexico. This spirit is aged for 5 years in American Oak casks, and finished in Adictivo tequila casks. BOTTLE SPECS❖ Spirit: Small Batch Whiskey from Mexico ❖ Distillery: Produced and Bottled by Vitro Tequilera ❖ ABV: 40% (80 Proof) ❖ Aged 5 Years […]

Wayward Single Malt Whiskey

Since my home state of California isn’t typically known as a major whiskey producer, I always get excited when I come across a new California based distillery like Venus Spirits. And, it’s even better when it’s not too far from where I currently live! And, although they offer a wide variety of spirits, I was most excited to try this bottle of Wayward Single Malt Whiskey. After many years in the beer and organic food industries, Sean Venus was inspired to build Venus Spirits after falling in love with whiskey. The distillery first opened in in Santa Cruz, California in 2015 and offers many spirits that include gin, agave-based spirits […]

Glencullen 10 Year

My journey through the Scotch whisky regions continues! This time, I’m trying a bottle from a northeast region of the Scottish highlands called Speyside. The region is well known for single malt scotch with sweet and fruity flavors. It’s been far too many years since my last experience with a Speyside Scotch, so I thought a good place to start would be the reasonably affordable Glencullen 10 Year Single Malt. BOTTLE SPECS ❖ Spirit: Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky ❖ Distillery: Distilled, Matured and Bottled in Scotland and Imported my County Line Distillers, Louisville, KY. ❖ ABV: 40% (80 Proof) ❖ Aged 10 Years ❖ Low Price TASTING […]

Tincup American Whiskey

Tincup is a whiskey brand based in Colorado that takes inspiration from the miners of the 19th century. It is named after the mining town Tincup, and each bottle comes with a tin glass that’s modeled after the style glass miners would use to enjoy and share whiskey. Tincup American Whiskey is a blend of two whiskies which are both aged in charred oak barrels for a minimum of four years. One is a high rye bourbon that’s distilled and aged in Indiana, while the other is a single malt from Colorado. The blend is then diluted with Rocky Mountain water. BOTTLE SPECS ❖ Spirit: American Whiskey ❖ Distillery: Bottled By Tincup Whiskey in Denver […]
