Beverage of the Week
Leinenkugel’s Canoe Paddler (USA)
Leinenkugel’s offers over a dozen different styles including a collection of seasonable beers like their “Canoe Paddler”, a classically styled Kolsch beer. This beer was first released as a limited seasonal beer but we are very pleased that it is now available throughout the spring and summer… See the Beverage of the Week feature
Tyrconnell Single Malt Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Bright copper color. The nose offers a very pretty marriage of apples and pears, grain, and spice with accents of oak, honey, and citrus. The palate echoes the nose offering a balance between creamy malt and peppery notes. Citrus flavors abound on the finish as this dram becomes dry and crisp. $45 – 3.5 Stars
Bogle phantom Red Blend California 2015
Brilliant, deep ruby color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of black currant and blackberry with supporting notes of black plum, black tea, and cigar box. The palate confirms the nose delivering a black fruit-driven core with flavors of black fruits, baking spices, and sweet/tart pomegranate. The finish is long and lingering with supple tannins and vibrant mineral accents. Full-bodied and nicely balanced with a supple texture. $19 4 Stars/90 points
Bogle Essential Red California 2016
Brilliant, deep ruby color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of blackberry and plum with supporting notes of cassis, raspberry, and star anise. The palate echoes the nose delivering a red and black fruits-driven core with flavors of black fruits, dried herbs, and five spice. The finish is long and lingering with supple tannins and sweet oak accents. Full-bodied and nicely balanced with a opulent texture. $11 4 Stars/91 points
