I saw this on Etsy recently and fell in love. How about getting a set of PERSONALIZED BOURBON GLASSES ? Yes, it’s true. These are incredible. You can choose from a variety of designs and lettering to make them your own. I am into collecting different styles of bourbon glasses and these will definitely make it[…]
After nosing around the “Bourbonsphere” for a while I saw several posts about the limited edition rye from Bookers! At first I said…ok…. another rye. (Fast becoming the NEW whiskey….ugh) But then I looked at the proof… nearly 140%! Whoa! “Now you have my attention”, I uttered under my breath. It seems to be fact[…]
When I heard that the price point would be around $100 I was skeptical about this blend but as soon as you “nose” this one you are drawn into the curiosity of this drink. The labeling alone is worth $20 of the $105! It harkens back to a time when bourbon was young and our[…]
December 27 in 1909, President Taft decided how we would classify American whiskey this led us to our modern whiskey classifications.

Leave it to Esquire Magazine to come up with a list that I think is the absolute dead on, no holes barred, best list of winter libations this side of a hot tottie. (Which I tried to make once and failed miserably) Who knew that cognac and sparkling wine could make such a fine brain[…]
I ran across this recently on Amazon and felt like I had struck gold. This book has everything you need to know about whiskeys across the globe including Scotch and bourbon as well as Tennessee, Irish, Japanese, and Canadian whiskeys. What intrigued me is that you learn about all the different types of whiskey and the distilling traditions[…]
I haven’t actually tried this but I am dying to get a hold of these. Wait….. maybe I should reconsider that comment considering the product’s name. 🙂 Thes look awesome! So here’s what I love about this. If you’re like me your libation gets too watered down even with the giant ice cubes that[…]
