Chivas Regal Mizunara

Chivas Regal Mizunara

A usually-boring scotch label tries out an exciting concept for a brand extension. Surprise! It’s still boring.

NOY 10 Armenian Brandy

NOY 10 Armenian Brandy

Another Armenian brandy today. Buckle up for a coke-versus-pepsi comparison I think is rather apt!
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 Rum

Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 Rum

An interesting bottle in that it comes to us with something of a (*gasp*)... storied reputation. And yet, I do think it's decently good stuff.
Overall Rating: ★★☆ 
 

Glenfarclas 21

Glenfarclas 21

We toss the word complexity around a bit without ever really going into it. Now's as good a time as any to see what all the fuss is about!

Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey

Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey

They could have called it anything else, literally anything, and been better for it. The whiskey itself is surprisingly not bad, and a huge step up from Bushmills' white label. 
Overall Rating: ★★☆

Ararat Akhtamar Armenian Brandy

Ararat Akhtamar Armenian Brandy

Armenian Brandy has a pretty rich and storied history. My Armenian friends might be wrong when it comes to System of a Down, but they're certainly not messing around with the Ararat Akhtamar 10.  Overall Rating: ★★☆

Bowmore 15 Darkest

Bowmore 15 Darkest

There's a lot about the Bowmore 15 "Darkest" that's fairly criticized for being inauthentic. However, I think it tastes great, so I'm conveniently looking the other way.  Overall Rating: ★★☆
