Review: Corsair Ryemageddon and Quinoa Whiskey

Corsair is probably the country’s most curious and experimental craft distillery (it makes one whiskey that has elderflowers in it), and the two whiskeys reviewed below should be proof enough of its oddball inspirations.

Review: Merlet Trois Citrus Triple Sec

Recently we took an exhaustive spin through Merlet’s fruit liqueurs… and then the company released one more.

Review: Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask 19 Years Old

Glenfiddich always puts out a special edition malt whisky around this time, and this year’s bottling is a curiosity indeed.
