1.0.1 Vodka Review

At around $20 a bottle, 1.0.1 Vodka is a good deal considering the high quality of the spirit. This grain vodka has a strong nose and soft, smooth mouthfeel.

The flavor is smooth, but with a bit more bite than most other American-made vodkas. But this is a good thing. The hint of spice makes it a good candidate for a great vodka and tonic.

If you’re a Ketel One drinker, 1.0.1 could be the … Read more

(ri)1 Rye Whiskey Review

Beam just introduced (ri)1 in the midst of rye whiskey’s comeback from more than 70 years in the shadows.

In the 19th and early 20th century, rye was the go-to liquor. Many traditional cocktails–like the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned–originated as rye cocktails.

But after Prohibition ended in 1933, American distillers turned all their attention to bourbon.

No one knows for sure why, but it could be because corn was cheaper than rye. It … Read more

Absolut Los Angeles Review

The latest in Absolut’s City Series, Absolut Los Angeles is a vodka infused with the flavors of açai, acerola, pomegranate and blueberry. In a continuation of both the city series and their Global Cooling campaign, Absolut is donating $250,000 to Green Way LA, a group dedicated to improving urban life.

I am not a huge fan of flavored vodkas, but this one is wonderful. The nose is fruity and sweet, but not too sugary. You … Read more

Crystal Head Vodka Review

Dan Aykroyd’s new Crystal Head Vodka is making its rounds on the Internets. Why shouldn’t it? Even if the vodka is no good, the bottle is a glass skull! Who would want to have few glass skulls around the house. The vodka comes complete with the story of the 13 Crystal Heads.

Aykroyd explains, ”Brought together, the Crystal Heads are said to contain vast knowledge and enlightenment capable of unlocking our most enigmatic ancient mysteries. … Read more

Sobieski Vodka Review

We recently got our hands on a bottle of Sobieski Vodka, a premium vodka from Poland. Made from Golden Dankowski rye and named after a Polish king, this is real deal. In fact, Sobieski is the best-selling premium vodka in Poland.

And they know their vodka in Poland. It is said to be the birth place of vodka, though, of course, this claim is contested by others.

They also know in Poland that good vodka … Read more

Chivas Regal 25 Year Old Review

Chivas Regal has recently recreated its original blend (also a 25-year-old) with Master Blender Colin Scott’s lifetime achievement, Chivas Regal 25 Year Old. Mr. Scott unveiled this luxury scotch whisky at the New York Public Library in a private tasting. We must have missed our invite?

At least the Chivas folks were nice enough to send a sample. So here it goes:

On the nose, Chivas Regal 25 Year Old, has hints of caramel and … Read more

Remy V.S.O.P Bottle by David LaChapelle Review

Remy Martin recently partnered with artist David LaChapelle to create
a limited-edition VSOP bottle that unleashed the youthful energy of Remy Martin VSOP. Remy also asked LaChapelle to draw on the cognac’s origins, the cabaret scene at Parisian nightclubs during the Jazz Age. What he came up is a stunning bottle featuring a sensual woman dancing in a vibrant, intensely colored jungle with a powerful leopard leaping through the air.

Only 150,000 of these bottle … Read more

Stoli Blackberi Review

One of the many product we had the pleasure to try in Vegas is Stoli’s newest flavor, Blackberi. I don’t think it is available yet, but trust me it will be worth the wait. I tried it over ice with soda, a what a delightful twist to straight vodka. As with many other Stoli flavors, the blackberry flavor does not over power or taste too sweet. It is almost an essence of the fruit.

I … Read more

Pinky Vodka Review

Pinky is a new vodka from Sweden. Made by master wine tasters, it is a super premium vodka distilled 5 times. Pinky is then blended with 12 botanicals (most notably wild strawberries, rose petals and violets). Each of these botanicals is distilled separately prior to being blended with the vodka. This gives Pinky its namesake hue and vibrant flavor. Unlike other flavored vodkas, the Pinky process yields a ton of flavor but no excess sweetness.… Read more
