So, you know when you're hung over and you just have to get some "hair of the dog" to chase away all the "screaming of the cats"? Well, that's what happened after our IrishFest 2022 Episode when we woke up with cotton mouth and a pounding headache, and then discovered that we had two more Irish whiskeys to try. So, did we get sick of the Irish? Or …

Irish coffee is a classic combination of coffee and Irish whiskey, so it seems fitting that the first coffee-flavored whiskey would come from the classic Irish whiskey distiller, Jameson.

As you know there are a ton of new "distilleries" out there that call themselves distillers but don't actually distill anything. That's not necessarily bad, but it's basically lying. However, Starlight is not one of these. Their unique situation allowed them to ferment and age whiskey using their own grains on their own land and according to their …

So, Season 6 has finally come to an end, and it was filled with a few setbacks, a new sponsor, some strong whiskey-centric content, and a whole lot of nonsense. And yet we still have one last thing to talk about. Ok, several last things. So, join us for a look back at the past six months and a glimpse forward at Season 7. Last Things: Whiskey group…
 
Several months ago, when we tasted Pinhook's Vertical 5-Year Bourbon, not only did we enjoy the whiskey, we were intrigued by the promise of their concept: Take a set of barrels and bottle only a portion of the spirit once a year, every year, for 9 years. So, here we are, expecting greater things from their 6 Year. Did a single year make a differen…
 
We've finally returned! It's been a long time, and we were all in person, and we had a special guest! Joining us was young Miss Gaby Penaherrera, star of the short film Move On.

By now everyone knows we belong to the Local Lounge in Mt. Holly, NJ, which is managed by frequent guest host Anders the Master Mixologist.

We're back with a new episode, and we are going old school!

We consider regular old Larceny Bourbon to be the best wheated bourbon you can buy under $50. So, what happened when Heaven Hill decided to release a barrel strength expression only 3 times a year?

In 2020, as an extension of our first Whiskey Madness blind tasting tournament (where the whiskeys were all $25-$60), we performed a double-blind tasting on four high-end expressions ($60-$100+). However, for 2021, we've done the opposite and picked four low-end expressions ($10-$25) to see if we can find a hidden gem on the bottom shelf. But this …
