Evan Williams 1783 Bourbon

Evan Williams 1783 Bourbon

Quite honestly, a product in search of a reason to exist. If there’s a niche it fills, I’m not savvy enough to detect it.

John Barr Blended Scotch

John Barr Blended Scotch

I’ve had better, but I’ve certainly had worse. Compelling if you can find it cheap!
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum

Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum

An affordable and quality-made rum that doesn't need to bludgeon you with sugar to get its point across. A nice change!
Overall Rating: ★★☆

Chalfonte Cognac

Chalfonte Cognac

A totally rock-solid cognac and representative of the category. So much so, in fact, that it becomes hard to find something novel about this bottle to talk about.
Overall Rating: ★★☆


The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve

The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve

Offensively bad at the price, made altogether worse by being positioned as a capable stand-in for a much better product. A total skip.

Hardy VS Cognac

Hardy VS Cognac

Support your smaller producer with this lesser-known but fully-capable cognac. The Hardy VS is a solidly crafted spirit that would serve as a great entry point for the cognac clueless.  Overall Rating: ★★☆
