Chopin Potato Vodka

Chopin Potato Vodka

Potato vodka: turns out it's a hell of a lot like regular vodka. This stuff is serviceable, but it certainly isn't in the upper echelon of fine spirits.
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Oak Cross

Oak Cross

A direct hit when it comes to a company telling you what they want to do, then going out and doing exactly that. If you've never heard of Compass Box, start here.

Jameson Gold Reserve

Jameson Gold Reserve

Sometimes it's important not to let a distillery's mass-market offering color your opinion of their entire range. I really don't like the standard Jameson much, but I quite enjoyed this.

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: ★★★

Atlantico Platino Rum

Atlantico Platino Rum

White rums are pretty boring. At least I thought so before I snagged a bottle of this. Proving yourself wrong is rarely this enjoyable.  Overall Rating: ★★★

St. George All Purpose Vodka

St. George All Purpose Vodka

St. George shouldn't be able to do so many things well, but one of their standout products is this affordably priced and superbly crafted vodka. If you typically use vodka in lighter, fruitier drinks, you need a bottle of this.  Overall Rating: ★★★
