Hold my beer… It looks like PBR is getting into the whiskey business and we are all probably scratching our head at this one. More likely than not, at some point in our lives we’ve all had a run in with a can of PBR. While I don’t drink beer much (or at all) these [...]

THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Grab your drinking straws because you are not dreaming. A truck transporting Fireball Cinnamon Whisky bottles crashed on a Massachusetts highway Thursday afternoon causing chaos for commuters. Ok, so maybe it WAS a drill, because unfortunately all of the bottles were empty…THIS TIME. But let this be a lesson to you, always be prepared.
The spilled caused quite the traffic jam for commuters in Mass. as it rolled over on I 495 about 45 minutes outside of Boston. The accident did cause minor injuries and temporary lane closures but was ultimately cleaned up over several hours. As if Fireball wasn’t already insanely popular, you can add this to some more free publicity for the brand. But this isn’t the first time this has happened! Last year in Arkansas a similar spill happened proving that it doesn’t matter where you are in the country, your time may come…
We’ve got new booze in this week and it comes courtesy of Vermont distillers, Stonecutter Spirits. So what do you get when you take a whiskey distilled like a bourbon, aged like an Irish whiskey (3 1/2 years), and finished like a Scotch in Cabernet barrels (4 months)? You get one hell of a confusing whiskey, but more importantly you get Heritage Cask Whiskey.
First Impression: If presentation is worth anything to you, you’ll like this one. A uniquely shaped massive bottle that reminds me of a decanter more than a commercial bottle design. If you’re one of those people who love to “hack” everything (like me because I’m cheap!), when you’re done with this one scrub off the labels (goo-gone is your friends!) and you’ve got a nice whiskey decanter for your mini bar.
Tasting Notes: When I first sipped this I immediately got a very subtle taste, almost like a whiskey that had been watered down with ice already and THEN the spices kicked in. I like it, it kind of sneaks up on you with fruity and sweet notes like peach, vanilla, and cinnamon. But the real balance is in the bite of black pepper that really rounds it out for me when it hits the back of your throat. It’s complex enough so that you feel like you’re sipping something special and yet not so complex that you worry if all the flavors will go over your head. Your taste-buds can appreciate this one.
ABV: 45% [90 Proof]
Price: $60 [750 ml]
Drink Recommendations: Neat, Sazerac,
Final Word: I’m pretty particular about what whiskies I keep for myself, which ones I serve to guests/friends/family, and which ones I serve when I want to impress you. This one falls into the “impress me” group. The flavor itself I’m a fan but I’m a bigger fan of how subtly the spices kick it up in your mouth. It’s a little on the expensive side for some, but for a good whiskey it’s well priced and would work well in any bar. Whiskey in Vermont, who knew? If you’re looking to get your hands on a bottle it’s currently available in Vermont, Massachusetts, and the NY Capital region.
