High West Bourye “Limited Sighting” Review

In American Whiskey Reviews by Kyle GeorgeLeave a Comment

Bourye is a beautiful whiskey with a great dark amber color. With a slight twirl of the glass, it gives off some nice thick legs. Past renditions of this blend I have not enjoyed, however, I have been very happy with this “Limited Sighting,” as High West is calling it. The nose, while having a little alcohol on it, gives off a beautiful bouquet. The more I sit and nose the glass; the more different notes keep presenting themselves. Would have to say my only real complaint with this pour would be the finish. Wish there was just a little bit more there; while the warmth stays with you, it just doesn’t coat your palate as some other whiskeys do. Overall this is a great product and would encourage everyone to try out.

Brookstone Iced Mule Mug Review

In Drinking Accessory Reviews by Jim KnudsenLeave a Comment

OK, I will admit, I am a gadget guy. Having a technical background I am fascinated by new ideas and clever devices. Also, since people know I’m a spirits guy when people look to gift me, it is not unusual to get some booze related stuff. That is how I ended up with the Brookstone Iced Mule Mug. Watching a neighbor’s pooch for the weekend, a nice little gift as a thank you (Thanks Jon and Jin).

Hancock’s President’s Reserve Bourbon Review

In Bourbon Whiskey Reviews by Lee StangLeave a Comment

Hancock’s Reserve is the poor cousin of the Buffalo Trace Mash bill #2 line. You won’t find much information on the bottle label, nor is there anything about Hancock’s Reserve on the Buffalo Trace Distillery web site. It can be found on the website greatbourbon.com, a site run by the Sazerac Company. Hard to find, I had once had a pour of it in Nashville a few years ago and recently came across it during a drive through eastern Tennessee.
