So many labels and so few age statements! Pure Kentucky is a terrific bourbon that gets no love from the whiskey elite. It has the wonderful pedigree, being made at the Willet Distillery, and there is plenty of aged, wheated whiskey in the blend showing depth and character befitting a 6 to 8 year-old spirit. – Erik Guzinski, Wine & Spirits Consultant
These days Bourbon is becoming a little too esoteric. Four Roses Yellow Label always reminds me that good bourbon doesn’t need a flashy label, humongous age statement, or a lofty story. Good bourbon needs to satisfy and make you want to tilt the glass again. – Sam Davies, Wine & Spirits Consultant
Rich aromas of plum, tobacco leaf, wildflower honey, and pencil shavings on the nose preview the complex flavors delivered by this smooth, single-malt rye. Coppersea uses heritage malting methods and grain sourced locally from Hudson Valley farms to achieve an impressive level of quality and sophistication with this rye. – Keyana Shaw, Wine & Spirits Consultant
Here is an exclusive Astor Single Barrel bottling from our friends in the Hudson Valley, Black Dirt Distilling. Bottled cask-strength, this Bourbon is rich, and dense with classic vanilla, spice, and a hint of fruit—something like fresh, farm apples. – Josh Mizrahi, Wine & Spirits Consultant
Tasting this bottling of Coppersea Rye conjures images of walking through a grain field on a warm afternoon just before the bounty is reaped. With a kiss of honey, warm spices, and a touch of hot cinnamon on the finish—what more could you want from a locally made spirit? #DrinkNY – Bambi Ray, Wine & Spirits Consultant
