Michter's American Rye

Michter's American Rye

Life is hard enough as it is. So when a good thing comes along, why talk yourself out of enjoying it to the fullest?
Overall Rating:   ★★★

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey

It ain't bourbon or scotch, that's for sure. This is a very good thing in my book, and I hope it holds true for you as well.
Overall Rating: ★★★

Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon

Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon

Brash, aggressive, and as subtle as a punch to the mouth. All that said, Wild Turkey 101 is a well-made bourbon and is totally worthy of a purchase even for a sissy boy like myself.
Overall Rating: ★★☆ 

Mellow Corn

Mellow Corn

Do you want to know a secret? Mellow Corn might be the absolute best spirit bargain out there. It's so surprising and so cheap that you might as well pick up a bottle even if you don't drink whisky. Overall Rating: ★★★

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

What if I told you that what people widely promoted as the most manly, ass-kicking kind of spirit was actually formulated to be rather sweet and gentle? You might think you're getting Motorhead, but you're actually getting REO Speedwagon.  Overall Rating: ★☆☆

New Amsterdam Gin

New Amsterdam Gin

If you're basing your understanding of "New American" gins based off of what's in the New Amsterdam bottle... uh, don't.  Overall Rating: 

Aviation American Gin

Aviation American Gin

Aviation is something of a paradox: a "light" gin. It's the forefather of a New American gin style that's tasty, but certainly not for everyone or for all applications.  Overall Rating: ★★☆

Tito's Handmade Vodka

Tito's Handmade Vodka

Tito's might be questionable with respect to whether it's handmade or not. It's unquestionably a good mixer at a price point that makes it a no-brainer when it comes to choosing a house vodka.  Overall Rating: ★★☆
