Casa Noble Reposado

S1035-2

We’re on to the second round of Casa Noble’s most basic line of tequilas. We started earlier this week with the Crystal (blanco) which exceeded our expectations with a very pleasant sweetness and earthiness that was strikingly different than other blanco tequilas we’ve reviewed.

The Caribbean tends to get the lion’s share of attention when it comes to rum. I mean really, it does make quite a bit of sense if you take the time to really dig down in and look at it. The Caribbean is the fertile crescent of rum. Much like man is thought to have drug himself into being in eastern Africa, so rum heaved itself out of the hodgepodge of cultures that had poured into the “New World.”

George Dickel White Corn Whisky #1

If you only Jack, you don't know Dick... el...

There’s something special about moonshine. It’s the purest form of the liquid we’ve all come to adore so much. Unadulterated, unfettered, it’s the virgin expression of the base spirit that we all strive for. At least when it’s done right.
