Before we get into what this whiskey is, let’s go ahead and start with the packaging on this bad boy. This stuff arrived in a cool box with slidey things and a door, and when you open it, the bottle is super classy with script writing and a little wax stamp. I wish we still […]Read more "Review: Blood Oath Pact No. 2"
Alright, it’s been a while since I had an oatmeal stout, it’s usually a style I can get behind. I didn’t start a bender with this over bacon and eggs, but I can use my imagination. Company: Dead Armadillo Craft Brewing Location: Tulsa, OK ABV: 5.82% ABV Style/Description: Coffee Oatmeal Stout Price: $9 (22 oz. […]Read more "Review: Dead Armadillo Morning Bender"
A rare India Pale Ale from the good folks at Prairie Artisan Ales! I love the label on this, very spooky. Before now, Phantasmagoria was only available in a very limited amount on draft only. Mostly in Tulsa too, lucky stiffs. Anyway, I’m looking forward to digging in to Prairie’s first double IPA. Company: Prairie […]Read more "Review: Prairie Artisan Ales Phantasmagoria"
The Lexington Brewing Company was acquired in 1999 by Pearse Lyons. (Hey! That’s the name of this whiskey!) They didn’t start distilling until 2008 when they purchased pot stills from Scotland. Since this is made in America and not Scotland this is considered an American Malt. This malt is aged in Bourbon barrels that have […]Read more "Review: Pearse Lyons Reserve"
Well this’ll be a couple of firsts for us here at Barrels and Mash. Not only is it the first official High West review, it’s also the first “Light Whiskey” review we’ve done. Hooray for new things! Light Whiskey became a thing in the late 60’s and early 70’s as a way for American whiskey producers […]Read more "Review: High West 14 Year Light Whiskey"
Ok, so this is kind of an odd thing to review. Why? Well we’ve kind of already reviewed it. Back in January, Roughtail released Batch 3 of their rotating Adaptation Series IPA and I reviewed it here. Well, much like us, everyone went pretty ape shit over how good that beer was and, being the […]Read more "Review: Roughtail Everything Rhymes With Orange IPA"
Here at Barrels and Mash, we drink our fair share of Bourbon barrel-aged beers… in fact, we drink some other people’s fair share too. Obviously we can say the same for Bourbon, so when New Holland dumped barrels of their Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dragon’s Milk Stout and refilled them with whiskey, we wanted to drink that […]Read more "Review: New Holland Beer Barrel Aged Bourbon"
Oh, a single hop double IPA made from a brand new experimental hop? Great! According to the brewery it is a new hop from the Pacific Northwest called 07270. This is a single hop brew, no other hops were used. There are 4 pounds per barrel! I’ve heard a few whispers that this isn’t your […]Read more "Review: Elk Valley Experimental Imperial IPA Batch 2"
You know normally these fields trips are pretty easy to write. We go to the brewery, I feel kind of awkward because I’m there in some kind of a weird journalistic capacity like I know what I’m doing (I don’t), then I go home and know exactly what I’m going to say when I sit […]Read more "Barrels and Mash Field Trip: 405 Brewing"
You know what’s good? A whiskey. You know what’s better? Three whiskeys! Pub W just rolled out their April whiskey flight and they were nice enough to invite us to help out with writing the tasting notes (the official sheet with our notes are at the bottom of this post). So last Monday we snagged a […]Read more "The Jack Daniels flight at Pub W"
