Hiram Walker Watermelon Schnapps Review

post icon

In honor of Easter, we are reviewing the Hiram Walker Watermelon Schnapps this week.  You might ask yourself, what does Watermelon Schnapps have to do with Easter?  Nothing per se.  But, its bright color reminds me of Easter eggs.  And, I couldn’t wait to dye Easter eggs as a kid.

When the flavored Martini craze hit in the late 1990’s, early 2000s, I was pretty excited.  I really love Jolly Ranchers and the flavored schnapps … Read more

Ketel One Citroen Vodka Review

post icon

Ketel One has a long and proud heritage.  It was started in 1691 in Schiedam, Hollland by Joannes Nolet and has been passed from father to son for over three hundred years.  We are looking forward to the day that it passes to a daughter as well given the increasing role of women in distilling and the industry.  Ketel One historically produced a dutch spirit genever, which reminds me of a cross between vodka and … Read more

Hiram Walker Creme de Menthe Review

post icon

In keeping with this week’s Mad Men theme, we are reviewing the Hiram Walker Creme de Menthe.  Creme de Menthe was incredibly popular in the 1960’s and for good reason – it’s delicious.  It makes me sad that we miss out on so much that is yummy and good by wanting to do the opposite of what our parents and grandparents did.  I really think that we lose out on some truly delicious food and … Read more

Glen Grant 10 Yr. Single Malt Whiskey Review

post icon

This scotch is the perfect spirit for beginning scotch drinkers.  It expresses the essence of scotch with its soft nose and palate expressions of dried fruit and kernal flavors, such as toffee, with none of the intensity or smokey peat that may turn off beginning drinkers.  This soft and approachable qualities also make it a great scotch to use in cocktails.  The Glen Grant 10 Yr. Single Malt Whiskey also clocks at an entry level … Read more

Luxardo Cherry Liqueur Review

post icon

Today, in the heyday of the cocktail renaissance, there is probably more adored spirit than the Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur. This liqueur is it’s baby brother and while the two share the same DNA with the use of the sour marasca cherry, they are very different. The Luxardo Cherry Liqueur is similar to a cherry brandy. The juice of the marasca cherries are fermented and then aged in oak barrels, which gives the Cherry Liqueur a … Read more

Vieux Carre Absinthe Review

post icon

This Absinthe is named after the famed and famous Vieux Carre drink invented in New Orleans.  Absinthe is the key to the Vieux Carre cocktail or at least the Absinthe rinse that gets the cocktail started.  The Vieux Carre Absinthe lives up to its vaunted namesake with its delightful qualities and beautiful bottle.

The Vieux Carre is produced by Philadelphia Distilling where it was the first Absinthe produced on the East Coast of the United … Read more

Absolut Miami Review

post icon

We recently received a bottle of Absolut Miami, which is the 6th edition in the Absolut City Series.  I absolutely loved the bottle upon seeing it.  From the Art Deco building on the back to the palm tree, flamingo and rising sun on the front, the bottle sums up Miami.  The Absolut Miami screams cool and fun.

Not only did I really like the bottle upon seeing it, I really liked the aroma of the … Read more

Zignum Reposado Mezcal Review

post icon

This is a different type of mezcal that what you might be used to.  Usually, mezcal has a smoky flavor that is imparted when the pina, which is the heart of the agave plants, are roasted in pit ovens dug into the ground.  This process has been used to make mezcal for over two hundred years, and it is this roasting that gives mezcal the smoky aroma and taste you associate with it.  However, the … Read more

Pau Vodka Review

post icon

This Vodka hails from Hawaii! I have to admit the fact that Pau is made in Hawaii and has an awesome bottle (more on that later) made me want to like it even before I even tried it. But, the good news is that I liked it just as much after I tried it. Pau Vodka is made by Haliimaile Distilling Company in upcountry Maui and distilled from Maui pineapples.

The Pau Vodka bottle is … Read more
