It’s come to my attention that we really haven’t reviewed a gin for near 6 months now (I honestly keep buying New Amsterdam or get a special Tanqueray) So this whole thing aside from providing the internet with honest spirit information is to keep trying new things so let’s try an American gin.

Midnight Brett: 7.5 – It’s a great tasting wild ale, with a nice cherry/berry flavor that is just a little bit tart unlike some other beers which go a little too far. Another well received short-batch from Allagash.

Abita Restoration Pale Ale: 4.0 – Another substandard offering from Abita – I suppose I have to try other beers from them (they have to have done something right). Because even for an American Pale Ale this is kinda tasteless.

I think (confirmed) this is our first Anejo tequila – and if you go buy the ‘reviews’ on the bottle giving this 94/100 points from tequila.net, and being #1 in blind tasting of 164 anejos – it’s possible we have a really good one? Honestly though while this is certainly a bold and distinctive blend of flavors – it’s not exactly a fan favorite here.

Abita Turbodog: 2.5 – I don’t get why I dislike this beer so much, and while it may actually be closer to a 4 my distaste for it is palpable.

Colette Farmhouse Ale: 6.5 – It’s got a nice sweetness and hoppiness to it, but overall it’s a middling farmhouse ale. It is however very drinkable which makes it a good choice in my book.

So we’ve always discussed how proximity to Russia for vodka can often be a nice indicator of quality. This is why Ukrainian vodka can be better than Polish (most of the time). However there’s always one thing we ignore in this ruling – what if proximity to Russia can work the other way. While there’s no Alaska vodka in stores that I can find, I did find this vodka from Canada.
