  • Whiskey Sour with Buffalo Trace Bourbon

    Whiskey Sour with Buffalo Trace Bourbon

    The Whiskey Sour is a beautifully elegant tasting cocktail with flavors of sweet and sour, almost like lemonade along with great oak flavors with a great body. This recipe worked so well I’ve had three more since recording the episode. This is what a great core cocktail should taste like without losing its identity as a whiskey.

  • Michael Collins Dublin Apple Recipe [video]

This brings a new flavor to the standard whiskey style cocktails such as the manhattan without being over-the-top.

    Tasty, the Red Snapper Shooter, a Canadian whisky style shooter that brings out a nice flavor profile from the whiskey: creamy oak with a bit of sweet tasting appeal.

  • Michael Collins Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review

    Michael Collins Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review

    I’ve had a chance to review Michael Collins Irish Whiskey Blend, but now it’s time to hit the single malt and see how she handles the palate. The single malt has a beautiful coloring, one could call it amber; I’m seduced by its rich dark gold coloring. I’m going to sip it both neat and with ice to see if I can find all the subtle differences in taste and scent. First, in a glass at room temperature I’m finding […]

  • Michael Collins Irish Whiskey Blend – Review

    Michael Collins Irish Whiskey Blend – Review

    This blend is aged in oak casks, Michael Collins Irish Whiskey presents as a dark copper but remains crystal clear. I’ve taken the time to start my taste testing neat, without ice and pour ice into it later after I’ve written down notes on its “neat” presentation. The bouquet of Michael Collins Whiskey Blend is that of sweet oak and light notes of coconut. My second sniff resulted in something I’m not used to picking up on the nose: a […]

    Buffalo Trace Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey Review

    Let’s sit down with a distillery that’s been making great bourbon’s since the 1800′s and launched the Buffalo Trace brand in 1999. This bourbon pours an excellent dark copper with perfect clarity and no cloudiness to speak about. The Buffalo Trace has a pretty vanilla scent with light notes of campfire smoke mingling with a rich black pepper wrapped in a lightly sweetened caramel candy. On a second swirl and sniff, I get a bit of darker Swiss chocolate with […]
