Patrón Spirits

Lifted Spirits

Wheat Whiskey

Caramel, vanilla, grain smell (obvious given it is a wheat whiskey but still there). Moderately smooth with still a hint of harshness. Got to give some props to a KS/MO distiller. Like it but still have a preference to a CO whiskey and of course, some Japanese whisky. — a month ago

En Cré Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Pinot Noir 2019

really great find from crush wine & spirits in NYC. $25 red burgundy with a lot going on. fresh, tart sour cherry, an earthy / damp leaves component, a thicker mineral backbone, a hint of eucalyptus maybe? there’s a bit of herbal tea on the finish. this ones a winner. — a month ago

Smooth Ambler Spirits

Contradiction A Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskies

Rhonda likes on par with knob creek, but it is different (and different than most bourbon) — 22 days ago

St. George Spirits

Breaking & Entering Bourbon Whiskey

I have long been a fan of St. George for a long time, and this confirms my high opinion of them. Nose of rye spice with vanilla and bananas foster, and on the taste, honey-sweetened tea with clove and pepper, masala tea spices, oak, and bitter chocolate. Orange emerges immediately on the finish with subsequent honey. — a month ago

Dow's

Vintage Porto Port Blend 2000

Still grapey and youthful, with spirits evident, even after 9 hour decant, but wonderful fruit that follows the Dow style towards moderate, rather than ebullient, sweetness, but super excellent with great complexity, needs 15-25 more years in the cellar. — a month ago

Sacred Spirits Company

Cardamom Gin

Last tried this at Guldbaren in the Nobis Hotel in Stockholm. Essentially made for the Swedish market because they love cardamom. And indeed this is all cardamom... — a month ago

G.D. Vajra

Barbera d'Alba 2018

Downtown Spirits, $23

I try not to be such a G.D. Vajra fanboy but every wine of theirs I have blows me away. This is the best yet. Beautiful bouquet of cherry with a spicy sweetness, maybe chocolate? Silky smooth berry on the palate that coats your entire mouth with just a touch of acidity that I can only describe as juicy. Finishes with a sweet creamy slightly spice note kind of like a mocha. I'm still new in my wine journey but so far this wine is as close to perfect as I've had.
