Bourbon

New York, NY
Let’s face it: you don’t just drink “whiskey” anymore, on the rocks or poured in a shaker as the strong base for a lip-smacking concoction. Rather, not only do you drink Bourbon, the quintessential American Spirit, but you... read more

Cognac: King of Brandy

Bourbon and Rye

New York, NY
With a few worthy exceptions, Bourbon wouldn’t be much of the Whiskey Star it is today if rye –the grain- did not give it its flavor backbone. Would it even exist if our forefathers did not make liquor from a rye mash to b... read more

Cask Strength Scotch Whisky

Cask Strength Scotch Whisky

New York, NY
This class requires prior knowledge of Scotch Whisky… this is geeky: staying away from “mass consumption” of the regular alcohol levels! Most blends and Single malts are bottled at 80 proof or slightly above, but the connoisseur knows there is more pleasure to extract from a non-reduced release. ...

The New Face of Scotch Whisky

The New Face of Scotch Whisky

New York, NY
In an increasingly competitive Whisky market, Scotch has tried many ways to re-invent itself...successfully it seems.

18 and Gorgeous

18 and Gorgeous

New York, NY
The whisky is firm, fresh and yet it shows a confidence only brought by maturity. 18 seems to be the sweet spot for fine Scotch: vibrant, with a lot of personality and character. Wait...when it comes to Scotch, most of the whisky produced is either used in blends or consumed right passed its 12th...

Bourbon: Big and Small

Rare & Precious Japanese Whisky

Japan is the second largest Single Malt producing country in the world...and some argue it stands ahead of everybody else when it comes to quality!

Bourbon and Rye

New York, NY
With a few worthy exceptions, Bourbon wouldn’t be much of the Whiskey Star it is today if rye –the grain- did not give it its flavor backbone. Would it even exist if our forefathers did not make liquor from a rye mash to begin with? Indeed rye whiskey was first in our cups, and the spicy taste of...
