    The Yamazaki 18 is an outstanding, award-winning single malt whisky that every scotch enthusiast should try…if you can find it. It is very much like a scotch, but from it’s from the Suntory distillery in Japan which has a history of it’s own. For those unfamiliar with this whisky, it is similar to a speyside…sweet malt, cereal,and sherry come through with vanilla and a hint of smoke. Try a small sip “neat” without water so you can taste it’s relationship to scotch.

      Yamazaki is great, but 18 is both hard to find and extremely expensive.

    I have the best Silver tequila in SIN RIVAL surpasses Avion by a long shot, you need to try it to verify.

      Sure send us a sample. But I think you are wrong about Casamigos, it’s a solid tequila for a very specific segment of the tequila market.

    • drinkspirits

      By the way, you never did send Sin Rival.

  • Dan Affalter

    Have you guys tried Dry Fly? Also you really need to try Suerte Tequila.

    • drinkspirits

      Yes, Dry Fly is solid. Will Put Suerte on the list.

  • drinkspirits

    Thanks for the catch. All Fixed. Haven’t tried Hangar One Raspberry, they never seem really interested in working with online press.
