Type: Small Batch
Not only do you get the extra proof but a lot of subtle aging characteristics and aromas that would have been lost in the proofing down process!
Type: Bottled in Bond
Old Fitzgerald 15 Year Old is a nice whiskey, but I think it is a bit pricey for what it is.It lacks the complexity I would look for in that age and price range personally speaking.
Type: Bitters Type 2 Herbal/Fruit
Very much a further step in the right direction, with a bit more polished herbal enhancement and a far better package that celebrates its return to its roots both literal and metaphorical.
Type: Malt ( Barley)
Nicely done and very mellow whiskey, Highly recommend for the Whiskey Curious. Almost like a dry, aged rum but more subtle with less sweetness. Lots of flavor without the kind of flavors to scare people off, think of it as a gateway whiskey for the white spirits crowd and a bit of a break from the heavy stuff for the usual whiskey crowd.
Type: New York State, New York State apples, Pot Still
An exciting addition to Apple Countries Apple Jack portfolio.Proof that upstate New York can make decent apple brandy.
Type: Blended, Small Batch
Inoffensive, not in a bad sense just a bit simple. light in complexity and finish. Might be a gateway bourbon for people trying to develop a taste for brown spirits.
A very earthy herbal gin in the Genever style. Almost a Fernet gin
Type: Hand-Crafted New World Gin, New York State
Overall The Lakeward Spirits Evergreen Gin reminds me of a Vieux Systeme Genever with the lovely grain base expression of the distillate.
Type: Blended, Rhum Industrial
Very flavorful, complex and nicely structured, and not overly sweet. Just the way we like our blondes – of any kind.
Type: New World
Flower City Gin is a lovely blend of price and quality. Enough juniper to satisfy, without being overdone. Local gin quality at a mass produced price.
Damn fine for such a young whiskey.
An interesting and refreshing take on a London Dry Gin. Differently not your mothers’ old gin, but not so weird that you can’t recognize it AS a gin. Definitely recommend seeking it out!
Breaking & Entering Bourbon is a Juvenile Delinquent, with lots of promising showing but a bit of a lightweight
Much improved and cleaner taste than the previous incarnation. Highly recommend for a number of tasty cocktails or even by itself
Type: Organic, Rhum Industrial
If you are looking for a pineapple flavored white rum, this is it. Both flavor and price point are outstanding
If you love sweet drinks you will love this. Do not want to imagine what the hangover would be like. Mint Whiskey Sugar Bomb.
Nice 11-year-old corn whiskey base with an infusion of smoke and toasted oak stave that can be a very much love it or hate it proposition.
Interesting if not overly great young rye whiskey. Nice example of an early type of rye but not overly complex because of it.
A bit of a horror show of a rum, I don’t personally get it
Type: Pot Still, Rhum Industrial
Great, classic type of rum and cheap too boot! Fun, complex and odd, just the way we like them!
