An Exceptional Calvados that is a wonderful winter dram and also an exceptional ingredient for a special cocktail.
Spirit of the month
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!
Breaking & Entering Bourbon is a Juvenile Delinquent, with lots of promising showing but a bit of a lightweight
Much improved and cleaner taste than the previous incarnation. Highly recommend for a number of tasty cocktails or even by itself
If you are looking for a pineapple flavored white rum, this is it. Both flavor and price point are outstanding
If you love sweet drinks you will love this. Do not want to imagine what the hangover would be like. Mint Whiskey Sugar Bomb.
Nice 11-year-old corn whiskey base with an infusion of smoke and toasted oak stave that can be a very much love it or hate it proposition.
Interesting if not overly great young rye whiskey. Nice example of an early type of rye but not overly complex because of it.
A bit of a horror show of a rum, I don’t personally get it
Great, classic type of rum and cheap too boot! Fun, complex and odd, just the way we like them!
A young, cheap and decently made whiskey, just not a lot of age to it.
Damn fine Bourbon and Favorite of the Elijah Barrel Proof releases so far!
A damn manly yet gentlemanly bourbon.
