Clean, simple, floral, touch of sweet citrus. Surprisingly good for the price!

Noah's Mill Bourbon 750ml
Review Date: 8-22-2008
A 15-year-old small batch bourbon from Kentucky Bourbon Distillers. This elegant whiskey is complex, but not overpowering. Its soft yet distinctive aromatics range from citrus and stone fruit to forest, leather and smoke. A corn-driven front palate of caramel and toffee is followed by a pepper and spice finish owing to a significant amount of rye in the blend. For an over-proof (114.3-degree) bourbon, it is not at all hot.

Rowan's Creek Bourbon 750ml
Review Date: 8-22-2008
Incredibly balanced, its zesty aromatics feature some surprising honeysuckle and jasmine notes. The mouthfeel is supple but not thick; there’s also a subdued sweetness with just a touch of pepper and no detectable heat. Attractively packaged and reasonably priced, something this good can’t last forever.

Lillet Blanc 750ml
Review Date: 7-18-2008
This white wine-based aperitif was created in 1887 in Bordeaux and originally had a high quinine content (presumably to treat malaria). Quinine is synthesized from the Kina-Kina tree, hence the drink’s original name: Kina Lillet. The original recipe was made famous by Ian Fleming in Casino Royal as a key component in the infamous “James Bond Martini.” This blend of fruit liqueurs and fortified wine was originally marketed as a tonic of great medicinal quality. These days there’s a new, friendlier Lillet with less quinine and it still lends itself to making cocktails, like the famous Edith’s Fizz.

Domaine de Canton Ginger & Cognac Liqueur 750ml
Review Date: 6-18-2008
Popular with the French since colonial times, this Ginger Cognac Liqueur melds the subtle heat of baby Vietnamese ginger root with the depth of flavor of Grand Champagne Cognac. The addition of spices, honey, and Tunisian ginseng make for a magnificently complex handmade elixir without preservatives or colorants.

St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur 750ml
Review Date: 6-18-2008
A first-of-its-kind elderflower liqueur. Wild alpine blossoms are hand-harvested and macerated. Then, through a proprietary fermentation/distillation process the delicate aromatics are released from this wonderful gem, which has a supple but never syrupy texture.
