I decided for Christmas time I should get a nice bourbon to round out my usual fare. I’d seen 1792 around, but it wasn’t at some of the whiskey tastings I’ve visited. I will add though that I was not disappointed in my choice.
Our wine tasting store occasionally has a spirit or beer as a sidebar to their normal wine tastings. This week they had some Four Roses (which we don’t have the review since we tend to take a bit more time to appreciate a spirit that a public tasting can’t provide.) They did however have something else which we feel we can talk about.
We’re BACK! We’re back now as Honest Booze Reviews, giving you honest, bullshit free, non-paid reviews of Beer, Spirits, and Wine. To kick things off let’s start with Larceny Bourbon. A fairly new kid to the block, which while not bad in terms of taste and smoothness – lacks a completeness to it. Yes while this may be a new site, we’ve not changed our policy of telling it like it is, view more for the full breakdown.
When I think of Ezra Brooks I’m reminded of an old saying from a wise man “Bourbon, on the rocks please.” Now while all of us at the Buffalo Lounge have had their fair share of whiskey, our tastes (Mine especially) centered on Scotch. I sampled a vast amount of different varieties of Scotch, and I had tried Jack Daniels. It wasn’t until that fateful day though, when I was given just a small 375mL of Ezra that I thought the Americans could make a whiskey.
We’re back! Yes after a very drunken and plaque riddled holiday Honest Booze Reviews is back at it’s scheduled time. Now soon enough (Read: 2 months – actually half a year) DJ Lvl will post an exciting special edition where we review not only a wine we gathered from my basement, but some short reviews of a wine tasting we attended. However that’s just a bit too classy, and while class is expected at The Buffalo Lounge it’s second only to manliness. As such this week we review a bourbon whiskey, with a turkey on it.
