Beverage of the Week

Slaughter House American WhiskeySlaughter House American Whiskey
The unique Slaughter House Whiskey is made from a mash bill of 85% corn, 8% wheat, 6% rye, and 1% malted barley then aged in American oak for nine years before being finished in French oak that previously held a red Bordeaux style wine. It is bottled overproof at 44% abv but it doesn’t show a hint of alcohol heat being silky… See the Beverage of the Week feature

Wine Reviews

San Osvaldo Frizzante Raboso IGP Veneto NV
See the Full BevX Featured Review
Brilliant, deep ruby color with a medium bead of bubbles. The nose is moderately intense offering scents of red cherry and hibiscus flower with supporting notes of wild strawberries and blood orange. The palate echoes the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of crushed red fruits and mineral. The finish lingers with soft/supple tannins. Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced with a slight bit of fizz and just enough sweetness (balanced by tart fruit) to add body and texture. $15 4.5 Stars/94 points

Plow & Stars Cellars Chardonnay Napa Valley 2017

Brilliant, medium gold/green color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of white peach and tropical fruit with supporting notes of nectarine, butterscotch, and blanched almonds. The palate confirms the nose delivering a tropical fruits-driven core with flavors of lychee and lemon curd. The finish is long and lingering with sweet oak accents. Medium to full-bodied and nicely balanced with a creamy texture. $34.99 4 Stars/92 points

Spirits Reviews

Whip Saw Rye Whiskey
See the Full BevX Featured Review
Brilliant, deep amber/mahogany color. The nose instantly reveals that this is not your typical Rye Whiskey. Beautiful scents of vanilla cream, red cherry, caramelized sugar, candied citrus zest, and hints of tropical fruits. The palate fully concurs with the nose delivering a core with sweet grains soaked with ripe red fruits supported by caramel, oak, fruit cake, and spicy rye accents. Full-bodied and damn intriguing as the wine casks essentially turn this Whiskey into a ready-to-drink cocktail tasting like a well crafted Manhattan. Made with Rye Whiskies aged up to seven years and then finished in wine seasoned French oak barrels. $49.99 – 4 Stars

Straight Edge Bourbon Whiskey
See the Full BevX Featured Review
Brilliant, deep mahogany color. The nose is wonderfully complex offering generous scents of sweet toasted grains, allspice, nutmeg, caramel, honey, and vanilla bean with hints of red fruits. The palate fully confirms the nose delivering a rich grain and fruit core (the red fruits really pop here) with supporting notes of brown baking spices, toasted oak, and honey. Full-bodied being silky while bold with a long and complex palate that is ideally balanced thanks to a bright dose of acidity. Straight Edge is made with a blend of Bourbons ranging in age from five to eight years. $49.99 – 4.5 Stars
