One of the best values on an award winning Zinfandel. ($4-6 usually). This blows away most French and Italian red under $20. Notes of vanilla, oak, blueberry, and possibly fig.

Tito's is made in small batches in a copper still and distilled six. It is nearly flavorless and tasteless, costs $14.99 at bevmo, and it twice as good as Grey Goose.

Spritz this in any place (car, room, closet) that needs a little "refreshing" and you will be pleasantly surprised with an aroma that is outta this world. While I purchased the Signature Scent based on their wondeful shaving cream, I'm sure their other aromas are of the same high caliber. Available in the following scents: SIGNATURE a fresh clean mix of rosemary, lavender & peppermint. CITRUS pink grapefruit, lemon and bergamot SWEETGRASS lemon, lemongrass, cedar and rose geranium SPA...

I am a big fan of rum, in all shapes and varieties, but the anejo especial put almost every other rum in my collection to shame. It is without doubt the finest rum I've ever laid my hands on. It might be a local thing, but I found it to be rather pricey compared to most other rums of similar stature. The flavour is not as sugary as some rums tends to be, also it is just incredibly smooth, I can not emphasise that point enough, definitely a rum of choice for me.

Well, gentlemen, I won't get into a big long shopping list of various notes, tastes, hints, and overtones, but I will tell you this: I have been drinking single malts for many a year, and have tried all the classics you might care to mention... None of them compare to this lovely Irish sipping whiskey. It is subtle, aromatic, and smooth beyond compare. It doesn't have the huge peat aroma and taste of Islay malts, but for my money it is the tipple of choice. As an added bonus, it has...

Price: The price of this product seems a little high upon first examination. I discussed this with Sue and she said that the price was driven by the expensive ingredients in the product. Most other products contain large amounts of ingredients such as menthol that give the odor and feeling that something should be happening but are in fact rather inexpensive. Quality: Based on quite a few months of use, the Atlas Sports Rub is top notch. What drove me to write this review was the fact...

Glenkinchie 10 is the lowland representative of the Diageo's Classic Malts. It is a very pleasant malt, one of the easiest drinking that I have. 86 proof and 10 years old. Appearance: Very pale gold, delicate color. Very few, stout legs. Very thin. Nose: Sweet malt, honey, caramel, grassy notes, some acid after the grass, lime perhaps? Palate: Very light bodied. Very smooth. Sweet gentle entry. Round. Lots of grassy notes, mild herbal notes. Mild zest and spice. Grows...

I'm not a big red wine drinker. While I usually keep my pantry's stock full of amber ales, commandaria, and Liebfraumilch, my wife and I usually don't consume a lot of dry reds. But I was surprised by this one. Yellow Tail Shiraz is the flagship wine of Casella Vineyards of Australia. I received this wine as a housewarming gift from my in laws after I purchased a new apartment with my wife. Price - After looking online, you are going to pay around 7 to 12 USD for a bottle. Not bad for...

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 20 years old, extrodinarily refined and elegant. This 20 year old, 90.4 proof bourbon made at the now defunct Stitzel-Weller Distillery is one of the enjoyable on the market. The average price of a bottle is around $100, I've seen it as low as $80 up to over $120. Appearance - Deep, Rich Caramel Amber Color with strong tones of a shimmery red, gold. Long, thin legs. Excellent Clarity. Nose - Sweet, Rich and Satisfy. Dark brown sugar, molasses...

Old Rip Van Winkle 15 is no longer availabe and has been replaced by Pappy Van Winkle 15 year old Family Reserve. Van Winkle claims that these two bourbons are identical, I along with many others active in the bourbon community, disagree. This bourbon was created at the famed Stitzel Weller Distillery and was discontinued several years ago. When it's found the price often ranges from $50 to $75. This is the grown up sibling of the Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year, and the extra five years do...

Highland Park 12, according to Michael Jackson is "the greatest all-rounder in the world of malt whisky." I absolutely concur. Makes a wonderful after dinner malt or with dessert. Without a doubt one of my favorites Scotches I will never go without having at least one member of the Highland Park lineup in my liquor cabinet. A bottle runs around $40. Color: Deep Brownish Amber Nose: Honey and heather, faint puffs of smoke, tiny traces of sherry, malty sweetness. Mildly floral with...

Cragganmore 12, the Speyside member of Diageo's Classic Malt series, is readily available, famously aromatic and quite tasty; an excellent dram. Michael Jackson credit's the nose as "the most complex of any malt."A world renowned complexity and very reasonable price tag. Very gentle, both sweet and dry, malty and smoky, a beautiful study in contradictions. Color: Honey Nose: At a quick whiff, the nose is very sweet, but upon further inspection it dries down almost immediately...

Laphroaig 10 year old Cask Strength, the Red Stripe, is the more recent of the Cask Strength offerings. 114.6 proof (57.3% abv), Isle of Islay, it's a smoky powerful, bold, brass and unapologetic. Color: Deep gold Nose: Bonfire smoke, sweet malt, slowly drying as aroma develops, faint iodine and sea spray, a kiss of salty oak. Palate: Very sweet, candied entry slowly warms for a second or two then an explosion of smoke, medicinal iodine, algae, barbeque, salt and pepper...

Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year old 107 proof is one of the most intense wheated whiskeys I have ever had, it's a powerhouse. Pound for pound the strongest in Van Winkle's lineup, but without the complexity, subtlety and poise of it's older siblings. More raw strength than Wild Turkey's Rare Breed, but without Rare Breed's complexity. This bourbon runs around $34. Nose: Hard caramel candy, toffee, spicy oak, caramelized nuts, dried molasses and dried summer fruits. Palate: Brown...

Black Maple Hill 16 is one of my favorite bourbons. It's tremendously rich and considering it's small batch, single barrel, 95 proof and 16 years old, very fairly priced at $62 a bottle. Simple elegant packaging with a rustic black label and black wax on the cap. Nose: Undeniably rich. Wood, earth, plantlife, some citrus and herbs, primarily mint. There are also traces of leather, oriental spices, honey, and molasses. Rustic, rugged and complex, the aroma takes me to a cabin in the...

Talisker is primarily known for their 10 year old and 25 year old malts. But the 18 is a forgotten gem. I looked for this one for over a year before I finally tracked down a bottle and I glad I did. Talisker hails from the Isle of Skye and was a favorite of Robert Louis Stevenson. The 18 yo is also used in Johnnie Walker Gold. The 18 year is 91.6 proof and runs from around $50-$55. Nose: Sea Spray, black pepper, lemons, fruit candy, nuts, oak driftwood and mild smoke...

Wild Turkey Rare Breed, Blend of Six, Eight and Twelve Year Old Batches, Bottled at Barrel Proof, 108.4 proof. Runs around $35. Nose: Oak, Dates, Mild Citrus, Leather. A walk on a path in rural Kentucky with an Orange Grove in the distance. Palate: A very intense whiskey, possible the most powerful in Wild Turkey's lineup, definately the strongest in it's weight class. Oranges, Toffee, sweet nuts and dates, all combined on a layer of light maple syrup, mint and honey, followed...
