Episode 2 of Three Cups Deep Warren Bobrow Behind the every cocktail there is a story. A bit of writing, a bit of prose, a bit of a thread of a narrative that each drinker or mixologist or author ascribes, enhances, and then deepens and expands. It’s that story, just as much as the recipe, […]

REVIEW – Papa’s Pilar Rum

Papa's Pilar Blonde and 24 Solera

Papa’s Pilar currently produces two different offerings – The Blonde and the Dark. Both offerings are sourced from several distilleries across the Caribbean, Central America, and Florida, and both are then blended with older rums via the solera method.

Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★☆

Worth a dram if only for the uniqueness of it. It stands apart, especially as a single malt American whiskey. It takes several times back to the draw for it to warm on you, but a lovely piece of Americana in liquid form.

This is a well-balanced aged gin that can really open up to both newcomers and gin veterans alike. It mixes well, and is an excellent addition to a still-small section of the gin world.

Between the sheer uniqueness of the base grains creating a creamier gin and the powerful wallop of the higher proof, this has quickly become one of our favorite Navy strength gins. It’s balanced, powerful, and beautiful.

REVIEW – FEW Bourbon Whiskey

Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★☆ Definitely not the ideal bourbon to introduce a newcomer, but for a small batch American, it’s a bit of brilliance, if not wholly balanced.

At first blush it came across as a sweeter than we prefer for a gin. However, revisiting the sample, the uniqueness began to endear it to ourselves.

REVIEW – FEW Rye Whiskey

Few-Rye

Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★★ This is one of the best ryes we’ve tasted at Cocktails, 365. It lacks some of the depth of a more aged spirit, but it’s that rawness that adds to the appeal.

Review – Cruzan Blueberry Lemonade Rum

Style: "Neutral"

Cruzan plays the flavored rum game as well, expanding their portfolio with the newest addition back in April – Cruzan Blueberry Lemonade Rum. We had the chance to get our hands on a bottle and put it through its paces.
