The A-List – November 2014

Welcome to this month’s edition of the A-List, our compendium of the best of the best we’ve reviewed in the last 30 days. Lots of great stuff for everyone this month, including a very rare “A+” rating to the latest Tun offering from the Balvenie. Not seeing anything you like here? We’ve also just published the 2014 edition of our annual Gift Guide with a generous amount of high quality suggestions for your upcoming holiday affairs.

The Drinkhacker Shopping List – 11.14.2014

Welcome to another edition of the Drinkhacker Shopping List, our overview of the best and worst of the last several weeks of reviews on the site. Lots of wines to choose from this edition, and a rare surprise of zero bourbons (we’d need to look back at previous lists, but it’s been a while since that happened) from which to choose. However, we’ve profiled plenty to satisfy even the most discerning of palates, and we’re sure there’s something on the Shopping List for you to enjoy.

The A-List – October 2014

Welcome to this month’s edition of the A-List, where we look back at the best of last month’s reviews and ratings and compile them into a really useful, printer-friendly graphic you may take along during your next trip to the store. We’re winding down 2014 and there have been some really truly exceptional items released on the market. Much like his beloved San Francisco Giants, Christopher got way lucky and was able to taste a 50 Year Old Highland Park, and it seems as if someone finally got pumpkin spice vodka correct. All in all, another fine month.

(Rob’s note: Hibiki all over the place. The 21 year hasn’t arrived in my neck of the woods yet, but the 17 year was here and gone the same day and I was lucky to procure a bottle. If you find it, buy it. Outstanding stuff.)

The Drinkhacker Shopping List – 10.19.2014

It’s the weekend, and time for another edition of the Shopping List, our bi-weekly look back at the best and worst of new products we’ve reviewed. Lots to choose from this time, including a healthy survey of pumpkin flavored beers and some tequilas and whiskies receiving high marks. Whatever your palate may call for, we’ve something for everyone. We even have something for San Francisco Giants fans, who will no doubt be in need of a chaser to mix  salty tears as their beloved team suffers defeat at the hands of the Kansas City Royals in six games or less.

The A-List – September 2014

It’s the top of the month and that means it’s time to look back at the best of the best that we’ve reviewed this week. We’re still enjoying a healthy onslaught of bourbons and whiskies thanks to the special/limited edition release season that’s now in full swing, but we also had a very special tequila, Casa Noble Anejo, which received the rare and coveted “A+” rating.

(Rob’s note: this month I fell in love all over again with Four Roses. I just finished off the Single Barrel custom-picked by my local store when the general release arrived on the shelf. It’s just as good as anything else they’ve put out this year. By the time you read this, it will most likely be off the shelf. But should you find yourself in a position to buy one, do so! See you in line for the Antique Collection!)
