Celebrating World Whiskey Day (May 20, 2017)

We recommend the following.

Bull Run Distillery

Celebrating World Whiskey Day (May 20, 2017)Bull Run Distillery was established in 2010 in Portland, Oregon and this particular product is a new one for Bull Run. What's wild and great about Bull Run is that when they tell the story of how they came to be, they talk about the principle officers. It tells a lot.

The quality of the product is remarkable as well. But, don't believe us. Seriously. Try it for yourself.

(1) 750ml Bull Run Single Malt Whiskey (89 Proof) SRP $61.00

Monkey Shoulder

Monkey Shoulder is distilled, aged and bottled in Scotland. Monkey Shoulder is also a term in the distillery business for those whose job it was/is to shovel barley. This led to one arm with a slight hang (like a monkeys). Fortunately, this is no longer an issue for the makers of Monkey Shoulder. However, the name has stuck. The distinction between this whisky and all others is that it's the world's first 'triple' malt. It's also extra smooth.
