Give It A Try Taste Tests

Dragon’s Milk Reserve 2022 #2

Taste Test: Dragon’s Milk Reserve 2022 #2. This is the second release in the reserve line this year and is a bourbon barrel-aged stout with stroopwafel cookies, coffee, caramel, and cinnamon. It’s a nice combination but more a dessert pour for me.

15 STARS Bourbon 14 Year

Taste Test: 15 STARS Bourbon 14 Year Batch. This is a very enjoyable pour that’s not overly oaky like an older bourbon might be. Definitely worth a try if you’re okay with the price point.

Broken Barrel Whiskey Cask Strength

Taste Test: Broken Barrel Whiskey Cask Strength. This is a solid pour and I like what Broken Barrel is doing with the staves. I enjoyed this more than the Small Batch, but the California Oak might be my favorite so far of theirs.

Rossville Union 2022 Barrel Proof Rye

Taste Test: Rossville Union 2022 Barrel Proof Rye. This comes from MGP’s Ross & Squibb and brings a lot of flavor for me. I’ve definitely become a rye fan.

Herb & Lou’s The Cooper

Taste Test: Herb & Lou’s The Cooper Infused Cocktail Cubes. These mixers are for their Blood Orange-Ginger Old Fashioned. You freeze the cubes, add one along with 1.5 oz of bourbon/rye then shake or stir.. It’s pretty simple but surprisingly tasty.

Yellowstone Family Recipe Bourbon

Taste Test: Yellowstone Family Recipe Bourbon. This comes with a 6-year age statement at 100 proof featuring a recipe passed down generations. It’s a very unique pour that’s hard to pinpoint but it’s enjoyable.

Dragon’s Milk Origin Small Batch Bourbon

Taste Test: Dragon’s Milk Origin Small Batch Bourbon from New Holland Spirits. This new year-round offering brings a 5-year age statement and 95 proof. It’s a solid offering from the folks that bring you Dragon’s Milk Barrel Aged beer.

Wreckers Vanilla Creamsicle Rum Cocktail

Taste Test: Shipwreck Wreckers Vanilla Creamsicle. This ready-to-drink rum cocktail says it’s a blast from the past with an adult twist. If you enjoyed that popsicle back in the day, this might be what you’re looking for.

CoCo Vodka Cocktail

Taste Test: CoCo Vodka Original. This ready-to-drink cocktail is pretty straightforward with vodka and coconut water. The coconut really stands out and, if you’re not a coconut fan, this might not be for you.

Broken Barrel Small Batch Bourbon

Taste Test: Broken Barrel Whiskey Small Batch. This bourbon is finished in oak staves (40% French Oak Staves, 40% Ex-Bourbon Cask Staves, and 20% Sherry Cask Staves). I love what Broken Barrel is doing, but this one wasn’t my favorite. I enjoyed the California Oak more.

Broken Barrel California Oak Whiskey

Taste Test: Broken Barrel Whiskey California Oak. This bourbon is finished in oak staves (20% French Oak Staves & 80% Central Coast Cabernet Wine Barrel Staves). This is a solid pour and worth a try. Very impressed by Broken Barrel.

Siponey Royale

I taste test Siponey Royale. This canned cocktail features rye whiskey, honey, lemon juice and sparkling water. This is one of the better ones I’ve had and flavors come through nicely.
