Bourbon vs. Rye

Single Barrel Bourbon

Single Barrel Bourbon

New York, NY
2016 saw the barrel count of ageing Bourbon in Kentucky hit the 6 million figure…it’s a lot of whiskey, but the flavor map is far from being uniform: the final aromas and flavors depend on the conditions of maturation! Humidity levels, air flow, exposure to light, atmospheric pressure, cask condi...

You’re a geek if you’re reading this! Pinot noir, Sherry, Port, Cabernet Sauvignon, Madeira, Sauternes, etc…Started in the early 90’s by innovative people at distilleries such as Balvenie, Glen Moray and Glenmorangie, it was then only a way to create new products, taking the space others wouldn’t...

Bourbon and Rye

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...

Cognac: King of Brandy

New York, NY
You all look at this bottle of Louis XIII on the back bar as being Cognac’s best and most expensive example around, but how many of you have had it? What about Hennessy VS?

Bourbon

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 also stock your liquor cabinet with a variety of Bourbons: a wheatier, a r...
