Whiskey Review: Gentleman Jack

Picked this whiskey up last week at BevMo and decided to give it a try. Light amber in color, it smells of typical bourbon. The aromas in the glass give hints of floral notes but the taste that comes through is overwhelmingly smooth when sipped. Some caramel and floral notes bounce off the palate with a medium finish.

Serve warm or with two ice cubes. This is definitely a sipping whiskey, with a minimum bite that disappears after the first taste.

It’s charcoal filtered twice for extra smoothness and that comes out in the taste profile. Subtle hints of oak help smooth out the finish.

Definitely a whiskey I’ll be adding to my stock on a regular basis! Oh and for those interested, I’d pair this with a Don Cervantes Masterpiece Gold. The woodsy taste on the palate along with hints of pine marry well with the floral notes.

Cigar Review: Tatuaje Black Tubo (verocu)

The shag foot cigar rolled by master blender Don “Pepin” Garcia for Pete Johnson starts out with spicy earth flavors that continue down the length of this well constructed puro. Flavors blended into light earth with a good mix coffee that reminded me of drinking a cup, rather than smoking it. The only other cigars that have captivated my palate so well are the Padron 1964 Anniversario and the Don Cervantes Masterpiece Platinum.

The Tatuaje Black finished with an exquisite taste and easy draw that will leave you wanting more.
