Blade and Bow Bourbon Review

Blade and Bow Bourbon Review

Blade and Bow bourbon is kind of a unique animal in the bourbon world because it’s created using a solera system where liquid is mixed in large vats that are never fully emptied so that some of the first liquid in the vats is always in the vats (but less and less every cycle). This…

Cedar Ridge Single Malt Review

Cedar Ridge Single Malt Review

Cedar Ridge Single Malt was one of the standout whiskeys I tried at the 2014 Whisky Live LA.
