WhistlePig Old World Cask Strength Whiskey Review

This is my first taste of a WhistlePig product. At 12 years, I’d say this is a pretty good one to start with. I didn’t have a lot of expectations for this product. I thought the color a little light for its age, but with a blend of finishes, there’s ample reasons for its unique […]

BULLEIT 95 RYE Whiskey Review

Most “rye whiskey” barely fits into the category by keeping the percentage of rye relatively low (by law it has to be at least 51% rye to call it such). But, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Sazerac Rye, for instance, which this blog loves–and boy do I mean loves–hits the minimum but delivers great […]

IRISH Blessing Coffee Stout Beer Review

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, we here at ManDay Monday are drinking Boulder Beer Company’s Irish Blessing Oak-Aged Coffee Stout. It’s kind of tasty, too! It’s hard to branch out from Guinness on Saint Patrick’s Day, but it’s harder still to turn down a coffee stout aged on Tullamore DEW-soaked oak chips. We sacrifice. […]

Eagle Rare (Big Red Liquors pick) Review

This is an Eagle Rare store pick from Big Red liqours (barrel 275). Eagle Rare is one of my favorite “cheaper bourbons” (it’s getting harder to find now, and not so cheap in some places). This store pick is out of this world. It is definitely older than 10 years. It has cherry on the […]

Sazerac Rye Whiskey Review

Sazerac, a bottle I’ve attempted to find in the Seattle-area for ages, and, of cousre, I could not. Thankfully the beautiful state of Oregon finally produced a bottle for me after many years. As a result, I call this one of my many “Unicorn bottles.” 90 proof of love, Sazerac Rye delivers on what I […]

2016 Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch Review

First of all sorry for the bad picture. I took it in a dimly lit bar that was only charging $12 for a pour of this. It’s Von’s 1000 Spirits in downtown Seattle (Since I knew you would want to know). This is an excellent bourbon. The 2016 Small Batch LE is a blend of […]

Evan Williams Bottled-in-Bond Whiskey Review

This gigantic bottle of EW love was something like a Value Meal cheaper in Nevada than it is in my state, Washington (the left one). So, naturally, on my last visit to check out the shiny lights and crazy people (no offense), I had to pick it up. A bargain in the Bottled-in-Bond world, this […]

Deschutes FRESH HAZE IPA Beer Review

I was super stoked awhile back when I walked through my local WinCo grocery store and found Fresh Squeezed IPA in cans. I’ve long been a fan, so it was just fortuitous that it came in a sweet, tasty 19.2-ounce canned offering for a whopping $2.59. Now, yesterday, I go back and as I head […]

Founders Barrel Runner Beer Review

Founders makes my all time favorite easy drinking beer–All Day IPA–and I’m a huge fan of a lot of their other offerings. Barrel Runner here, their aged offering, just doesn’t do it for me though. It’s a cross between a rum-tinged pale and a slightly fruity, less attractive rum-based cocktail. I don’t hate it, but […]
