I’ve been on a bit of a rye kick lately and realized that we didn’t have much in our collection, so we picked up a couple of things I’ve been wanting to try and instead of reviewing them one-by-one, I thought it might be fun to do a blind tasting since watching Kate do her bottom shelf […]Read more "Blind Rye Showdown"
Mustang came out with a peanut butter stout and just in time for the holidays! I drank this on a low key, post-Christmas afternoon with the fire going and the first snow of the year starting to fall. Peanut butter stouts have exploded around the country in the last few years, with a wide range […]Read more "Review: Mustang Udderly Awesome Peanut Butter Milk Stout"
Updated 12/27/2015: Tasting notes from 12/20/15 and 12/27/15 are below. We revisited Festivus a week after the original review and holy crap is this beer already developing into the delightful treat we remembered from last year.

This Bourbon was a Christmas present from my wonderful husband, Kris. I saw a present that was wrapped like a giant candy that looked an awful lot like an E.H. Taylor container and got super excited.

I’ve reviewed every Four Roses Bourbon I’ve been able to get my hands on since I started writing reviews 6 months ago. Here they are in all their glory! If you are particularly curious about this year’s (2015) Small Batch Limited Edition, you can find that, here. It was probably the best Bourbon I’ve ever had (so far.)

The internet is fun, and there are fun things on it. Some of those things happen to be groups of people that love the same thing you do, like whiskey and craft beer. It was in one of those groups where we scored some tickets to the Prairie Artisan Ales Gnome Dome, a small collection of […]Read more "The Prairie Gnome Dome and Review of Coffee Okie"
Woodford Reserve has released a different Master’s Collection expression every year since 2005, with the first being a Four Grain Bourbon. This year’s release pays homage to Oscar Pepper and Dr. James Crow by using white corn, obviously, instead of yellow. Due to the tools available back in the times of Pepper and Crow, converting the grain starches to […]Read more "Review: Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 1838 Style White Corn"
While I’m well aware that marketing (especially in the Bourbon industry) is generally just a bunch of bullshitty fluff, I’m also quick to admit that I love a good story. The following is the story of Wild Turkey’s Master Keep which piqued my interests and got me all excited to drink some. “The story of Master’s […]Read more "Review: Wild Turkey Master’s Keep"
I was perusing the liquor store the other day for something to review, and decided I wanted to do a bottom shelf tasting. Then, I figured it would be more fun to do a blind bottom shelf tasting. So, here we are! Come on down, the price is right! A: Color: Yellow Gold. Nose: Very […]Read more "Blind Bottom Shelf Showdown"
