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 […]

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 […]

Elijah Craig Kentucky Bourbon Review

My Grandmother called me today. She’s pretty much the best thing ever. She informed me she has breast cancer. Naturally, this was alarming and distressing and… yeah. So in a way not to drown away the sorrows, but in a reflection-sort-of-way, I tried the Elijah Craig Kentucky Bourbon. It was just the right amount of […]

Glenlivet 12 Year Single Malt Scotch Review

ManDayMonday.com hasn’t been updated, prior to this post, since mid-2017. I’m sorry for that. But, that said, I’m not sure anyone has noticed since a lack of traffic was one reason for the hiatus. In any case, that has changed. I poured myself a glass of Glenlivet 12-year-old single malt scotch today and it reminded […]

Monkey Shoulder Scotch

Monkey Shoulder presents a little “different,” which is what was intended in its creation. It’s a blend of three single malts with a name that stems from an old ailment that used to come down upon those who worked so hard to make us the good stuff (God bless ’em). This is interesting stuff to […]
