TINCUP American Whiskey with Dan

TINCUP American whiskey! It comes with a tin cup on the top! We’ve been enjoying the wider American whiskey movement. Kentucky Straight Bourbon, moonshine and Tennessee Sour Mash are great, but if they’re all you know of continental distillation, you are missing out. Colorado whiskeys are a nice blend of rye & bourbon tastes, coming

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Dark Ale with Dan

Our last post before Christmas, here’s a solid gift tip: The Innis & Gunn Holiday Pack. You get a heavy duty steel bottle opener and four bottles of beer – Original, Toasted Oak IPA, Rum Finish (review out soon) and this guy, the Bourbon Dark Ale. Part of Innis & Gunn’s Limited Edition range, there’s

Bowmore Legend with Steve, Goran, Dan & Matt

Post 301 y’all! Haven’t done back to back articles in a while.  Since we’re starting on a new day, with a new theme, I figured we should do a proper single malt scotch to mark the occasion. Bowmore Legend. We’re known as big Bowmore fans – before the price went up, their 12y was *the best* budget-range

Evan Williams Extra Aged with Dan, Steve & Alex

Evan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon Extra Aged. What is it with bourbons and using their full name? Must be an American thing. There’s another Evan Quentin Williams the fourth or whatever bottle at the LCBO right now, a White Label that is “bottled-in-bond”, which I have discovered is kind of a weird thing. Bottled in bond

Dead Crow Bourbon Beer with Matt, Dan, Brian & Al

Hat-tip to Colin for pointing me in the direction of Dead Crow Bourbon Beer. Not necessarily a ringing hat-tip, but a good lead nonetheless. Dead Crow Bourbon Beer is a… drink from a UK beverage company in Gloucester called SHS Drinks, whose motto is “a thirst for creating great brands”. Not “drinks”, “brands”. There’s no

Preview! Innis & Gunn Bourbon Pale Ale with Dan & Alex

Gotta love Twitter. I saw a promo for the Bourbon Pale Ale from Innis & Gunn’s UK account, so I tagged the Canadian account and asked if there were any samples available in Ontario. A couple of direct messages later and we received these two bottles express shipped. They’re not available in Ontario yet, but they

Traverse City Whiskey Company 4y Straight Bourbon with Dan & Julia

The second review from my business trip to Michigan! I was going to be pretty disappointed if I didn’t find something local in MI, USA. It’s a working state, and working people need good booze to keep them from thinking about how much work they still have to do. And let me tell you, Traverse

Labatt Prohibition Series Bourbon Barrel Ale with Brad

I spent a few days down in (relatively) sunny Michigan for a Michigan Municipal League tradeshow, and stumbled across another Canadian. Well, not… not Canadian beer, like Molson Canadian Beer, but a lower-case-upper-case-C Canadian beer…ugh. Let’s try this again – I was down in the States with my buddy Brad for work and we found

Blanton’s Single Barrel with Goran & Davey

Blanton’s Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This has been on the to-try list for a while now, so this was a great Christmas present. Great bottle. Good website. Excellent product placements on Bored To Death (a personal favourite), House Of Cards & Justified. A Sazerac brand related to the Buffalo Trace lineage, Blanton’s has

iScotch Bourbon Slurry with Dan, Goran & Ryan

And now for something different, again. Yeah, it’s different in almost exactly the same way as last time, but slightly different from that. This time, we’ve created a concoction of… um… well, I can’t honestly remember if this is just bourbons, or all American whiskies. But yeah, Project Pour Stuff Together Over The Course Of
