When an unexpected parcel arrived in the mail room of the Whiskey Tangent Studios, we were a little puzzled but excited. And upon opening the package, our excitement mounted as we realized that the sample we thought we were getting, was actually the most beautiful whiskey-related thing we'd ever held in our hands. The octagonal black container is i…

This was a complete surprise when it came out to very little fanfare back in February. We saw it on the Benash liquor store shelf and literally said "What the hell is that?! A new single malt?! From Bulleit?!" So, we bought it, and we were so exicted to try it, that we immediately opened it like kids on Christmas, and we really enjoyed it. But we w…

We first tasted the regular Barrell Seagrass almost two years ago during a Last Call recap episode (Winter 2022), and we loved it. Recently, though, Brian the Whiskey Explorer came over and brought along its older brother, the Gray Label Seagrass. So, does 16 years of aging and a higher proof justify its higher price over the regular? Or are we in …

So, our Jack Daniel’s episode (Episode #56) is by far our most popular download, and if you’re listening to this, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ve already listened to that. But to recap, on that episode, we highlighted their two new (at the time) Bottled-in-Bond expressions—Tennessee Whiskey and Triple Mash (a mix of Tennessee, Rye, and Single Ma…

Once again, Shavonne and Sue join us for an international Christmas extravaganza of whiskey and weird nonsense Scott saw on the internet. First, we try an Indian Single Malt that supposedly tastes like the holidays. And then we get grossed out by all the f’d-up foods people eat around the world at their various end-of-year festivities. So, how good…

Even though it sounds (and looks) like some legendary, newly revived, pre-Prohibition whiskey brand, Old Carter is actually only 6 years old, with virtually no backstory and zero ties to the history of whiskey in America. But you wouldn’t know it from the prices they charge or the cult following they’ve achieved. So, that begs the question: Is the …

Everyone knows we’re not Scotch guys. We do our best, and we do like it, especially expressions that tend toward Speyside or Highland varieties. And when we were sent a sample of a unique spin on a Scottish Single Malt from a venerable brand, we jumped at the chance to expand our palates and continue our long journey into Scotch. So, just click pla…

So, completely contrary to his nature, Scott got sucked in by an ad on Instagram to purchase a pretty special (but also pretty expensive) bottle of a new rye from the mind behind Angel’s Envy Rye. Now, it did win some awards, the bottle’s cool as hell, and it was made in the spirit of a famous tough guy author. But is it any good? And is it worth t…

Often when you have a just-ok experience with a particular brand that has a bit of a generic name, you might end up ignoring all other versions of it because you figure if one isn’t that great, the rest probably aren’t either. And yet, sometimes if you take a chance on a different whiskey from the same brand that’s a bit longer aged and a bit more …

And here we are once again tasting another one of Ed’s expensive retirement gifts—and frankly, it's a brand that we’ve been avoiding, mostly due to its price, undisclosed source, and an attractive label that just seems to be trying too hard.

So, here we have yet another new brand that was named after yet another an old brand that was named after yet another pre-Prohibition-era dude who got into the whiskey business.
