Paniolo Blended Whiskey Review

In Blended Whiskey by Lee StangLeave a Comment

A work colleague and friend from Hawaii, brought a bottle of this with her when she came to the east coast. We keep the bottle in a desk drawer for toasting contract awards. After reading the label and noticing the fact that it is three-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon I decided a more in-depth look was in order. While not available on the mainland US, they are looking for distributors. Those bourbon drinkers headed to Hawaii should give this a try.

Son Of Bourye Review

In Bourbon Whiskey Reviews, Rye Whiskey Reviews by Kyle GeorgeLeave a Comment

Some fellow bloggers told me to pull the trigger on this purchase while in KY and I am glad I did. There are not many bourbon-rye mixes out there to compare this to, so it is actually a unique product. Only a handful of other products come to mind that have done the same thing (Wild Turkey Forgiven, High West Bourye, and Jefferson’s Chef’s Collaboration). This is another High West product that I really enjoy. The blend of bourbon and rye works really well here. Has a nice balance of sweet and spicy; does great on its own or over the rocks. Another great bottle added to the bar if you can find a bottle now that it’s no longer produced.

Sweet n’ Tipsy Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

In Food by Chrissy MartinLeave a Comment

We all search for that perfect chocolate chip cookie, and when we find it we never want to let it go! Today happens to be National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day and what better day to share my ultimate favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Below you will find that one chocolate chip cookie recipe I never wanted to let go. Several years ago there was a cookie recipe posted in the New York Times, sworn to be the best chocolate chip cookie you will ever have. Naturally when you hear that something is the best you have to try it, so I did, and they were not kidding, next to my best friend Christy’s chocolate chip cookies (which she won’t share the recipe) these were the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had. They were simple to make and out of this world delicious!

Meet Your New Daily Drinker – Jim Beam Black

In Banter by Erin PetreyLeave a Comment

I wish I could say it was an endeavor into an odd type of social experiment. Sadly, it was merely the result of a long, tumultuous relationship with gravity and a front porch that my landlord needs to do some serious brickwork on. My loyalty to this universal force would, it seem, continue to go unrequited and landed me on crutches during my most recent trip to the Jim Beam Distillery in Clermont, Kentucky to learn more about the brand’s recently accoladed juice: Jim Beam Black.

The Best Mint Julep…. Ever

In Banter by Lee StangLeave a Comment

Now, I have had some good mint juleps. Most notably, one made by New Orleans bartender Abigail Gullo of Compere Lapin restaurant and formerly of Sobou, who in 2016 won the Bartender of the Year award, in a contest sponsored by Heaven Hill Distillery in Puerto Rico. The best mint julep I ever had however, was made by my Uncle Doyle.
