The Dads see what's going on in Fort Collins, Colorado as they sip on Old Elk Bourbon and Dry Town Gin from Old Elk Distillery. The Master Distiller is Greg Metze, whose reputation is already stellar from 38 years at Segram's/MGP and a list of distilleries he's consulted for, so we're really looking forward to this one.

2/6/2019
More
Proving yet again that we're not afraid of trying some new things, this week we set our sites on Ireland and Powers John's Lane 12 Year Old Irish Whiskey.

We love blind tastings. They are the best way to remove bias and truly hone in on your palate. We love them even more when our friends send them to us and we have absolutely know idea what could possibly be in the glass until we try it. This week, we have a 7 whiskey blind tasting from our friend Alex (better known as @bourbonandbeerri on Instagram). All we know is that these are most likely store picks from MA/RI.
