Togouchi Blended Japanese Whisky

Togouchi Blended Japanese Whisky

Not only does this stuff flat-out suck, it absolutely strains the limits of credulity to call itself Japanese whisky for reasons I can’t wait to let you in on.

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.

Bushmills Red Bush

Bushmills Red Bush

Ugh. Sometimes you think you have enough information to figure a product out, and then the rug gets pulled out from under you.

Tullamore DEW

Tullamore DEW

An underachieving whiskey for sure. If you're wondering if the alternative to Bushmills and Jameson is any good, it really isn't.

El Dorado 5 Rum

El Dorado 5 Rum

A fair mixer and a serviceable sipping rum if you're not paying too close attention. The rum rub: you can get a lot better than the ED-5 for not very much more.

Pendleton Canadian Whisky

Pendleton Canadian Whisky

Unless something worse comes along, this is the biggest stinker of maybe 300-some odd whiskies I've tried. Let me lead you by the hand into an explanation of why Pendleton is simultaneously terrible and ponderously dumb.
