If humankind were as subtle, smooth, and balanced as this gin the world would be a much finer place.
Spirit of the month
An altogether much drier version than the A120 Release.
At $60 a bottle for a barrel proof it is a bit of a deal and a decent whiskey but maybe not a must-have. Decent, but not stellar. Buy it as a solid bourbon for mixing.
Another release of a full and robust Barrel Proof Elijah Craig to enjoy and add to your whiskey archive!
A very nice Pennsylvania Rye, drier and more spare than other types of rye. Price is excellent for the quality
A Damn Manly kind of whiskey.Large, intense, and worth getting to know. A man or a woman who wants to try a old school rye needs to try this one.
Gateway rye at best. Great for newbies of rye but too light in character to recommend to anyone else
Always a great whiskey, unlike many over the years they have not changed the age or found a way to cheapen it at a cost to the taste, Was and still is a great whiskey.
Another Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Release. A bit lighter than some of the others but still good
Not only do you get the extra proof but a lot of subtle aging characteristics and aromas that would have been lost in the proofing down process! Worth the extra money for the extra proof and all the goodness that comes with it!
Old Fitzgerald 15 Year Old is a nice whiskey, but I think it is a bit pricey for what it is.It lacks the complexity I would look for in that age and price range personally speaking.
Very much a further step in the right direction, with a bit more polished herbal enhancement and a far better package that celebrates its return to its roots both literal and metaphorical.
Nicely done and very mellow whiskey, Highly recommend for the Whiskey Curious. Almost like a dry, aged rum but more subtle with less sweetness. Lots of flavor without the kind of flavors to scare people off, think of it as a gateway whiskey for the white spirits crowd and a bit of a break from the heavy stuff for the usual whiskey crowd.
An exciting addition to Apple Countries Apple Jack portfolio.Proof that upstate New York can make decent apple brandy.
Inoffensive, not in a bad sense just a bit simple. light in complexity and finish. Might be a gateway bourbon for people trying to develop a taste for brown spirits.
A very earthy herbal gin in the Genever style. Almost a Fernet gin
Overall The Lakeward Spirits Evergreen Gin reminds me of a Vieux Systeme Genever with the lovely grain base expression of the distillate.
Very flavorful, complex and nicely structured, and not overly sweet. Just the way we like our blondes – of any kind.
Flower City Gin is a lovely blend of price and quality. Enough juniper to satisfy, without being overdone. Local gin quality at a mass produced price.
Damn fine for such a young whiskey.
An interesting and refreshing take on a London Dry Gin. Differently not your mothers’ old gin, but not so weird that you can’t recognize it AS a gin. Definitely recommend seeking it out!
