santo_mezquilaSanto Pura Mezquila 100% Agave Spirit
Brilliant, crystal clear. The aromatics are quite complex and alluring with tropical-like fruits that signal baked agave with notes of citrus, smoke, soursop, and subtle earth and sea salt accents. The palate echoes the nose delivering a vibrant, agave fruit core with waves of spice, smoke, citrus, and baked root vegetable notes with a peppery smoke finish. Medium to full-bodied with complex and vibrant flavors and ideal balance thanks to a generous dose of acidity. 4 Stars

Milky, mocha/almond color. The aromatics are wonderfully seductive with scents of cinnamon, caramel, freshly grated brown sugar, and vanilla with hints of milk chocolate, cream, and subtle fruity Tequila accents. The palate echoes the nose delivering a silky creamy core with an explosion of chocolate supported by brown baking spices, rich cream, and vanilla bean. Medium-bodied with a lush, velvety center with intriguing spice notes and a pleasing balance. 4.5 Stars

benhams_ginD. George Benham’s Sonoma Dry Gin
Brilliant, crystal clear. The nose offers a bold but harmonious bouquet of bright botanicals ranging from juniper to citrus, ginger, and peppermint to name a few. The palate echoes the nose delivering a bright and bold citrus core with waves of galangal and flanking notes of coriander, juniper, and vibrant grains of paradise. Full-bodied and mind-blowing with a rich and silky texture and bold flavors with the peppermint rising on the finish. This Gin is not for the timid but if you love a powerful Gin this may soon become your favorite. 4.5 Stars

gtd_ole_george_ryeGrand Traverse Distillery Ole George Straight Rye Whiskey
Brilliant, crystal clear with a bright amber/gold color. The aromatics are complex with scents of ripe orchard fruits and toasted grain with supporting notes of black pepper, toasted oak, dried black fruits, caramel, vanilla, allspice, and pralines. The palate is full agreement with the nose offering a lush fruit-driven core with caramel, pepper, and brown baking spices that linger on the palate for minutes. This full-bodied Michigan Rye is for the hardcore Rye Whiskey lover as it delivers classic and bold rye flavors. 5 Stars

Brilliant, deep golden color with amber accents. The aromatics are so seductive that you can be satisfied nosing this Rum for hours. Rich red fruits mingle with charred oak, vanilla, caramel, honey, and hints of nutmeg, allspice, and white chocolate. The palate echoes the nose delivering a complex marriage of red berries with rich brown baking spices, oak, soft citrus accents, and lovely secondary notes that are unique to this great Rum. Although it’s lush and generous it’s also dry and vibrant on the finish as the fruit becomes tart and the spices lean toward pepper. Full-bodied with ideal balance thanks to a fresh dose of acidity and Don Q’s solid commitment to make Rum without excessive sugars. 5 Stars
