While possibly a challenge to fully comprehend for a novice rum enthusiast, this is high art for a starving artist price.

Interview with Zamir Gotta on Making Moonshine Vodka in a War Zone
A lovely, sensuous, spice bomb of a barrel aged gin
Interesting variation from the Jim Beam Family but a bit overshadowed by the wood and lacking some finesse and balance overall.
Very informative, in depth analysis of the vodka phenomenon. As easy and entertaining to read as vodka is to drink.
Better than regular Captain Morgan ( yes, damn faint praise) but costs considerably more.
Very mild, pleasant enough but rather low proof and a touch too understated.
Interesting, conceptually and maybe morally a nice thing, but expensive and rather specialized
Whisky Dreams is not your average whiskey book, with endless reviews of various whiskies and a selection of (the same old) cocktail recipes – far from it. Easily one of the best whisky cookbooks I have ever read.
A well made,delicate but durable nosing, tasting, and cocktail glass all rolled into one.
A respectable blended Scotch Whiskey for a modest price.
An absolutely amazingly useful device you will suddenly find you need to use for almost any infusion, syrup, oleo sacrum, etc., Oh, and its great to cook with too !.
A further departure from a London Dry and towards a New World Gin by a respected maker of gin. Less experimental in a good way than many of the modern style gins out there.
A fairly restrained but flavorful London Dry type of gin but with more citrus and less juniper
A must have book for any Anthony Bourdain and/or No Reservations fan. Just wish it was in folio (coffee table book size) format.
Overall a very nicely done and somewhat understated absinthe of a slightly nontraditional bent.
Decently made,excellent for the price, if a little light in flavor (which may not be a bad thing)
Nicely done, natural, if a bit rustic.
Interesting, Very good on its own but does not play well with some ingredients in cocktails.
As complex and baroque as a steampunk creation of any kind we have encountered. Well crafted but makes Hendricks seem mainstream and tame by comparison.
A very flavorful aged applejack that is very smooth and not a lot of money for the quality you get.
