• Grand Mayan Reposado, 100% Agave Tequila

    Brilliant golden color. The nose is filled with the scents of ripe tropical fruits that soon become overwhelmed with barrel notes offering accents of toasted nut, chocolate, and brown baking spices. The palate echoes the nose while offering even less fruit as the heavy-handed oak dominates smothering all of the agave notes. Medium to full-bodied with a dominating note of oak and oak astringency with no balance at all. This is everything that is wrong with far too many modern Tequilas – wood dominated with an astronomical price tag. $79.99 – 2 Stars

  • BiVi Sicilian Vodka

    Brilliant, crystal clear. The nose is soft and delicate with notes of chalk and mineral in the lead with citrus zest accents. The palate is not at all what the nose had promised delivering a hot and rather angular attack with pithy lemon notes married with white pepper. Subtle on the nose and fiery on the palate. $29.99 – 2 Stars

  • The Bitter Truth Pinkgin Spiced Navy Flavored Gin

    Very pale salmon color, crystal clear. The nose is very floral and fruity with waves of juniper and citrus and subtle notes of licorice. The palate is quite different than the nose as it delivers a bitter, pithy citrus core with tannic spice accents that fade on a thin finish. Medium-bodied and lacking a pleasing texture found in many Gins while highlighting citrus pith. We are not sure what they were aiming for in this Gin but we can't imagine that they hit the mark. $34.99 – 2.5 Stars

  • Tarantula Reposado, 100% Agave Tequila

    Pale golden color with perfect clarity. The nose delivers rich, ripe fruit with prominent wood notes including vanilla, brown baking spices, caramel, and toasted oak. The palate confirms the nose with a generous fruit driven core with wood accents and a big dose of black pepper. It finishes mildly hot showing-off the high proof spirit. $24.99 – 2.5 Stars

  • Spytail Black Ginger Flavored Rum

    Brilliant, deep mahogany color. The nose is filled with the scents of sweet Rum, cola, and brown baking spices, along with a generous dose of candied ginger and hints of tropical fruits. On the palate this flavored Rum becomes decidedly more angular with sharp spice and ginger notes and a strong medicinal flavors that overwhelms. Medium-bodied with compartmentalized and competing flavors. $22.99 – 2.5 Stars

  • Southern Comfort Fiery Pepper Liqueur

    Brilliant, deep mahogany/burnt orange color. Once you nose this spirit the new addition is quite evident as sharp pepper notes, courtesy of Tabasco, rises from the glass. On the palate the entry is equal parts sweet peaches and vibrant Tabasco flavors. Soon the pepper takes over and runs strong through the finish and beyond as the Tabasco heat lingers for minutes after the spirit has been swallowed. Medium-bodied and a bit disjointed with intense heat. If you are not in a college bar you will likely never have to encounter this product.$17 – 2 Stars

  • Allaire Privée Rum

    Crystal clear. The nose is quite interesting as it delivers sweet sugar notes alternatively with dense earthy tones and subtle tropical notes. The palate somewhat follows the lead the nose provided delivering a sweet and hot core with subtle mineral and earth notes that become dry and slightly woody on the finish. Medium-bodied with hot and dry notes that envelop the subtle fruit notes. $105 – 2 Stars

  • Belvedere Pink Grapefruit Flavored Vodka

    Brilliant, crystal clear. The nose is very lively with waves of ripe grapefruit and tropical fruits supported by accents of lemon and cream soda. The palate equals the nose offering bright fruit core flanked by notes of citrus pith and pepper with a sweet/tart flavor rising on the finish. Medium-bodied and fruity whil being both a bit fat and tart with citrus and spice notes. $40 – 2.5 Stars

  • Ron Matusalem Platino Rum

    Crystal clear. The nose is quite assertive with notes of toffee, vanilla, and molasses filling the nose. On the downside, there is also a persistent aroma of burning tires that at time masks the pretty tropical notes. The palate is quite viscous and it finishes very sweet, perhaps too sweet. This Rum is a puzzle as it has very pretty elements while it also offers some unattractive edges. $ – 2.5 Stars
