High West 14 Year Old Light Whiskey Review

High West 14 Year Old Light Whiskey Review

High West 14 Year Old Light Whiskey… what the hell is that? If that was the first thought through your mind then allow me to shed a bit of light on the dram at hand. Light Whiskey is a TTB designation that refers to a grain spirit distilled to the point of being 80-95% ABV… Continue!

Pine Barrens American Single Malt Whisky Review

Pine Barrens American Single Malt Whisky Review

Pine Barrens American Single Malt Whisky is another addition to the list of whiskeys that have been distilled from finished beer. In this particular case the beer at hand is the Old Howling Bastard which is brewed by Blue Point Brewing in Patchogue, NY. Old Howling Bastard is an American barleywine that clocks in at… Continue!

Corsair Oatrage Review

Corsair Oatrage Review

Corsair Oatrage joins the Corsair Quinoa and Corsair Triple Smoke in my trinity of favorite, not-too-difficult-to-find (at least in LA), Corsair whiskeys. Made from a combination of oats, 6 row malt & coffee malt this unique little whiskey stands head and shoulders above its closest competitor the High West Valley Tan which is is a… Continue!

Corsair Triple Smoke Review

Corsair Triple Smoke Review

Corsair Triple Smoke is among my favorite Corsair whiskeys. Like almost everything else they do it’s a unique and interesting take on a standard whiskey, which in this case is a single malt whiskey. Though unlike most single malts, even from Islay, it’s not just peated, it’s smoked. They start by malting 3 batches of… Continue!

Corsair Quinoa Whiskey Review

Corsair Quinoa Whiskey Review

Corsair Quinoa Whiskey is one of my three favorite whiskeys coming out of Corsair today and is a great example of Corsair’s dedication to doing things differently. Typically aged for about 5 months and made in 8 barrel batches the Corsair Quinoa Whiskey is made from 80% malted barley and 20% quinoa which begs the… Continue!

Corsair Buckyeah Review

Corsair Buckyeah Review

Corsair Buckyeah is one of Corsair’s whiskeys that’s rooted in non-traditional grains. Comprised of 51% buckwheat and 49% malted barley, this buckwheat whiskey stems from one of their many experiments which have included uncommon grains like quinoa, spelt, triticale, blue corn, sorghum, oats, millet and 6-row brewer’s malt to name a few that I saw when visiting… Continue!

Orphan Barrel Gifted Horse Review

Orphan Barrel Gifted Horse Review

Recently I got to taste the Orphan Barrel Gifted Horse at the Los Angeles launch party and soon after I got to taste a sample at home which I sipped on while formulating this review. Like the whiskey itself this post is going to be a mix of several things. A quick Orphan Barrel Gifted… Continue!

Balcones Texas Single Malt Review

Balcones Texas Single Malt Review

Balcones Texas Single Malt is called such because it’s Balcones’ Single Malt and they’re located in Texas… it’s a pretty self explanatory name. Though unlike Scottish single malts, and most single malts around the world, this one is not aged in barrels previously used to age other spirits. It is instead aged in new charred… Continue!

Corsair Rasputin Review

Corsair Rasputin Review

Corsair Rasputin Hopped Whisky starts out life as a traditional Russian Imperial stout that is crafted by one of their talented brewers. A talent I can attest to after doing a flight of everything they had on tap and then spending the afternoon chatting with some of their brewers and distillers when I did a tour… Continue!
