Glencairn Whiskey Glass Set
Any fan of whiskey needs a set of tasting glassware for their home bar. So what better pair of glasses to set the stage for their nightly sip than these Glencairns, hailed as the “Official Whiskey Glass.” They’re made from non-lead crystal, feature a tapered mouth for easy sipping, and a wide bowl for thorough inspection of the whiskey’s character and hue.
Whiskey and literature go hand-in-hand, especially if it’s you who’s scribing about the experience. Whiskey Notes offers just that, serving as a guide for personal exploration through the spirited drink. It hosts a hardcover journal with guided pages for tasting notes, a slim notebook complete with worksheets for the home distiller, and even a fold-out American Whiskey Family Tree poster.
Whiskey Soaked Campfire Jerky
There are two ways to a whiskey lover’s heart. More whiskey and beef. Luckily, ManReady Mercantile combined the two in the form of this whiskey-soaked campfire jerky, soaked overnight in Bulleit Bourbon before getting slowly smoked in a Texas smokehouse with Texas pecan wood. Each piece is also hand cut, measured, and inspected so nothing but the best makes it out of the Lone Star State for your enjoyment.
Keep you dram cool without watering it down thanks to the Whiskey Wedge from Corkcicle. The increased surface area from the wedge reduces the amount of melting that occurs, thus chilling the whiskey just right without losing its unique flavor and profile.
Angostura Classic Bitters
Nothing like the original. And if cocktails are your thing then it’d be wise to pick up some bitters for the bar. I mean, it’s one of the main ingredients to an Old Fashioned. Their unique blend of natural herbs and spices result in a one-of-a-kind addition to any craft cocktail scene. They even pair well with food preparation too.
Whiskey Wood Bar Stool
Any home bar requires bar stools. So why not pick up a set of all wood barstools made from reclaimed whiskey barrel wood from the Jack Daniel’s Distillery? They come in either a swivel for fixed setup and are finished to preserve the woods’ past life as an aging medium for some of America’s most well-known whiskey.
Stag Horn Whiskey Flight
Nothing like enjoying a flight of your favorite drams out of a genuine stag horn. Each Sir Jack’s Whiskey Flight is handmade in Scotland from a real deer antler, comes equipped with four 6oz tasting glasses and will certainly class up the home bar or library for the better. And in case you were wondering, yes, the antler is ethically sourced as well.
The Gift Of Great Whiskey
As The Luxury Spot says
Whiskey not only helps to prevent cholesterol from building up in your arteries, but it can actually help to get rid of any cholesterol present in your blood vessels at the moment. It will also help to relax the walls of your arteries, ensuring that your blood can flow without obstruction.
Having a cold or the flu is miserable. The scratchy sore throat. The shivers. The stuffy nose. It’s no fun at all. Thankfully, whisky can ease the symptoms. A hot toddy, which is made of whisky, honey, lemon juice, and hot water can provide some relief.
The alcohol also dilates your blood vessels, which makes it easier for your mucus membranes to deal with the infection.
Here’s a simple recipe to get you started
This is obvious, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention it. Plain and simple, whisky is absolutely delicious. The multiple layers of flavor, the initial burn of the alcohol, the hints of vanilla and caramel. It’s a true sensory, sensual experience. Perhaps this is why George Bernard Shaw said, “Whisky is liquid sunshine.”
Get the recipe here.
Spiced Apple Cider Of course, it’s much better to be drinking whiskey with friends then drinking it alone. So, here’s my pick for a autumnal punch that’s good for sharing with others…perhaps on Thanksgiving. I don’t have a consistent recipe; I just put a half gallon of cider in the slow cooker with a bunch of mulling spices then shake it up with ice, or serve warm. But, this recipe from Jewels of New York looks like they’ve worked out the portions just right, so I’ll be trying this as the turkey roasts this year.
The Maple Leaf This year, I’ve been learning and experimenting with how different sweetners affect the taste of a drink: white sugar vs. raw sugar vs. gum syrup vs. agave vs. honey, etc, etc. The results? A lot, especially if it’s the most distinguishable sweetner of all – maple syrup. You can’t ever hide its characteristic…um, mapleness, so you might as well embrace it.
Shake with ice, and serve in a mason jar. It’s basically a whiskey sour, but with a bit more character. And, if you want to enjoy one with your breakfast pancakes, we won’t judge.
Scotch Whiskey Punch.
Steep the thin yellow shavings of lemon peel in the whiskey, which should be Glenlivet or Islay, of the best quality; the sugar should be dissolved in boiling water. As it requires genius to make whiskey punch, it would be impertinent to give proportions. (see “Spread Eagle Punch”,No.39.)
Dissolve the sugar well with wine-glass of the water, then purr in the whiskey, and add the balance of the water, sweeten to taste, and put in a small piece of lemon rind, or a thin slice of lemon.
Fill two-thirds full of shaved ice.
Stir with a spoon, and ornament the top with fruits in season. (Use small bar glass.)
The brandy sour is made with the same ingredients as the brandy fix, omitting all fruits except a small piece of lemon, the juice of which must be pressed in the glass.
Shake with ice and strain into chilled sour glass.
Garnish with a half-slice of lemon and a maraschino cherry.
Nel ricettario Iba dal 198sotto il nome di Sours Whiskey con la codifica di 3/di succo di limone, 7/di bourbon o canadian whiskey, cucchiaini di sciroppo di zucchero e facoltativo alcune gocce di albume d’uovo.
For when you return from a family wedding.
Spending a couple of days answering excruciating questions about your love life can be trying. If you’re thinking life has given you lemons, this may be your go-to drink. After all, the trick to getting this just right is to strike the right balance between the sugar and lemon. To get started, fill a cocktail shaker with tons of ice, pour in 50ml of whiskey, about 20ml of both lemon juice and sugar syrup, shake it well and voila you’ve got your whisky sour. (Clockwise: coke and peanut cocktail, the whiskey sour, hot-blooded delight, classic suburban)
For when you want to show off your mettle.
Invite your crew for a house party and see who lets loose after trying this classic whiskey cocktail. A blend of parts rye whiskey, part dark rum and part port, it’s finished off with a dash of Angostura bitters. A word of caution though: this drink is not for the faint-hearted.
Skinny Jalapeño Watermelon Margaritas that are naturally sweetened with watermelon juice and a touch of agave. So easy to make and perfect sweet and spicy. The ultimate summer margarita! Options to make a small batch or a pitcher to share.

That’s a crazy cheap price. 750ml? posted 2015-Apr-6, 9:00 pm AEST ref: whrl.pl/RegBdy posted 2015-Apr-6, 9:00 pm AEST blergen writes…
For an Aussie whiskey, I second Hellyer’s Road. It’s pretty damn good. Fruity, a little caramel, and not bad value for the price. Sullivan’s Cove is obviously pretty good, but Hellyer’s Road is a very enjoyable dram.
Sullivan’s Cove –> Lark –> Hellyers Road > Starward (Vic)
Lark is a very beautiful drop. Even rivals the Sullivan’s Cove in my opinion. If you can, grab the cask strength one. I had one which was about 64% ABV and you would never know it drinking it. A dash of water and it was just sublime.
Found the 10yo Hellyer’s a ‘nice’ whisky, but ultimately not that fantastic. Lacked character and wasn’t as gentle as some of the others. The Pinot Noir Cask by Hellyer’s I found a little more interesting as it has a bigger flavour palate and more of a dark fruits flavour, but still wasn’t overwhelmed by it.
Glenlivet – if you must go down the blended route, this is ok.
This stuff is fantastic
I’ve tried the 1and it was awesome. Also alot of praise everywhere. Wouldn’t mind trying to upper stuff but that applies to all whiskies haha. (off topic: Starting to get into cognac as well.. Merkow VSOP being the first one. I love gentleman spirits such as whiskies and cognacs!)
Yes, and no ref: whrl.pl/RegCQl posted 2015-Apr-7, 1:1pm AEST bumwau writes…
I’ve tried starward and its so expensive!
But with whisky, given that there are so many other good whiskies are a cheaper price point i.e market is already competitive, it is rather hard to expect to be highly successful trying to sell super expensive stuff that’s not readily available.

Not related to whiskey but just got sent a promotional email that Dan Murphy’s has a stocktake clearance on at the moment but only applies to deliveries.
Not sure if this link will work ref: whrl.pl/RegEQi posted 2015-Apr-7, 9:5pm AEST
My list for fine whiskeys would be any of the the following brands: – Macallan: any age but I’ve only ever had the 1and 1year olds. The 2is out of my per bottle budget range
I prefer Macallan myself. I normally get the 1for everyday and the 1for special occasions. A friend of mine had a bottle of the 2and it’s excellent. A fuller version of the 1with a faint fruity darker taste. Too close to the 1to justify the price tag. ref: whrl.pl/RegNlO posted 2015-Apr-10, 10:0am AEST
Help me!!! I am alcohol addict
There comes a point where people find sanctuary in alcohol. That’s the point where it all starts to fall down. Despite the fact, we agree or not, that remains to be the truth. Our sensibility depends on our realization.
The times when one has a drink or two for unwinding or for pleasure would be gone when one becomes dependant on alcohol. You become so dependant that you need alcohol to function in daily life. This is where it starts to affect you very bad. All this has a very negative impact on your life, health, relationships etc.
First of all thanks for reading my article to the end! I hope you find my reviews listed here useful and that it allows you to make a proper comparison of what is best to fit your needs and budget. Don’t be afraid to try more than one product if your first pick doesn’t do the trick.
Most important, have fun and choose your Whiskey Sour Glasses wisely! Good luck!
