I write about American liquor, especially whiskeys, and I have a soft spot for apple brandy.

  • Japanese whisky

    I wonder, as a fellow specialist whisky blogger, you want to think about writing a “knol” about US whisky. I just wrote the knol on Japanese whisky. I am hoping we can build a network of knols about whisky to try and inform a few more people about whisky.

    If you don’t know what knols are, they are a project by google (and therefore with the possibility of significant search engine coverage). Knols are like wikipedia articles except they are moderated by the initial author, thus allowing him/her the promise of not having their real knowledge destroyed by wikihooligans.

    Couldn’t help myself, Mr. Nathan:

    Wish I could have found the proper video though.

    Opened my first bottle of Buffalo Trace a few nights ago, blogged about it and ran across your blog. It is a great read and very well done. Keep up the good work!

    Great website, keep up the good work. Drink Sam Houston if you are looking for a quality sipper.

    Hi There,

    I just wanted to follow-up because I represent several wine and spirits brands and would love to send you more information on our clients.

    Can you please provide me with an email address?

    Thanks so much.

    Please review “Country Creek” bourbon. It is our favorite.

    I found your site online this morning and decided to reach out and tell you about my new venture Dark Corner Distillery, a micro distillery located in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. We will be producing South Carolina’s first legal moonshine by utilizing time tested recipes and methods including an 80 gallon copper pot still that I personally designed. Other product offerings will include unique whiskey and bourbon, brandy and grappa made with local grapes, and beer schnapps using made with local micro brews.

    Visit our website at http://www.DarkCornerDistillery.com and taste a swig of the finest Appalachian heritage and lore while getting a dose of Dark Corner history. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or want to do a story.

    Have you tried 1512 Barbershop Rye? http://www.1512Spirits.com. It is worth a taste and as an unaged 100% rye whiskey its the best I’ve tried. Period.

    Please don’t post this. I am a distributor in MD,DC and DE. I’ve been in the industry for 40 years . I was involved in the beginning of the California wine industry in the early 70’s. My company was the first Boston Beer distributor outside of Massachusetts and we have an admirable craft beer portfolio to this day. We have been involved with micro-distillers on a small scale and I want to expand it dramatically . We sell 209 gin,rogue spirits, 22vodka to name a few. Before I start making hundreds of phone calls I thought I would contact you for some info. After reading your stuff I thought you might direct me to independent entrepreneurs ( no big companies ) who make quality stuff that would like distribution in the nations capital and surrounding states. Thanks

    Loved the website. Lots of good tips and info on finding something that will work or you. I just started getting into the unaged corn whiskeys myself. I have a bottle of Georgia Moon which is ok, and a bottle of Midnight Moon I have yet to try but hear is pretty good. My favorite so far is Ol Smoky Moonshine. Good sippin whiskey. Keep up the good work on the website. Hope to read more

    Hello! I am interning for a bourbon distillery right now and trying to educate myself along the way. Found your blog and it helped a lot! Love the reviews. Would you happen to have an email address I could reach you at to ask you a quick question? Thanks!
