Bourbon H.S. -600x600

Food: Bourbon makes everything better and that’s true with this next item. This Chipotle Habanero sauce is infused with Jim Beam Black Bourbon and is full flavor. It is spicy and rich with a nice smoky flavor. Add it to almost anything to give a little extra kick. It’s especially good in Bloody Mary’s or chili with and extra shot of bourbon. Get it here.

Just a heads up. If you are heading out to a distillery on the bourbon trail, be sure to check the hours of operation as there are some delays to due weather this week. Cheers everyone.






Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey Review

IMG_9038

Name: Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey

ABV: 46%

Proof: 92

Nose: Vanilla, Molasses, Nutmeg, and Oranges.

Palate: Rich molasses, caramel, vanilla, allspice, and deep smoky wood flavors.

Finish: Moderate and floral with light spice and wood tones.

Overall: This is a creamy whiskey that is perfect for those wanting an easy mellow sipper. The flavors are distinct and play well together. This is a whiskey that could definitely be enjoyed during a heavier dinner rather than after as the flavors compliment a variety of meal options. I really enjoyed the finish with this one; it was nearly perfect in my book. My final thoughts on Teeling Small Batch was that it is a great whiskey for those wanting something very smooth, simple, and light. Neat is the way to go with this whiskey.
