Ancient Age Bourbon

Ancient Age Bourbon

There's value here to be sure. But if you're the kind of person who can afford an extra topping on your pizza, Ancient Age is hard to recommend on merit alone.
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey

Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey

I hope I'm not going to bore you with a history lesson, but I think it makes for a good story. Or at least a better story than the one Cooley's trying to sell you with this bottle. 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: ★★★

Old Grand Dad Bonded

Old Grand Dad Bonded

Grand Dad wouldn't steer you wrong. Slap a twenty on the counter and run out of the store giggling when you think of what a gonzo value this is.  
Overall Rating: ★★★

Cutty Sark Blended Scotch

Cutty Sark Blended Scotch

You've probably seen this bottle at your grandfather's house. Odd that you probably know more about whisky at this point than your grandfather does.  Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Bernheim 7-year Wheat Whiskey

Bernheim 7-year Wheat Whiskey

It's close to a bourbon, but not quite: it's a wheat whiskey. There aren't many of them, and if Bernheim is representative of the category, it's a shame there aren't more.  Overall Rating: ★★☆
