Review: Wines of Bonny Doon, 2021 Releases

Review: Wines of Bonny Doon, 2021 Releases
2020 Bonny Doon Picpoul Monterey County Beeswax Vineyard

Ever looking for a way to delight its customers, California’s Bonny Doon has priced all of its 2021 main-line releases at $15. Today we look at the quartet of releases, including three blends and one solo varietal, a picpoul.

2020 Bonny Doon Picpoul Monterey County Beeswax Vineyard – Salty and sharp up front, this wine eventually settles into a creamier groove that evokes melon and some coconut. Best served very cold, where its natural salinity is more obviously evident. B

2020 Bonny Doon Le Cigare Blanc White Wine of the Earth – A weird blend of 60% grenache blanc, 32% verminto, and 8% clairette blanche. Sure enough, it tastes like a weird blend, a doughy but also rather green wine with notes of honeysuckle, white pepper, broccoli rabe, and a notable green bean character. The finish is on the dank side, hinting at fresh tobacco and mud. All of that may sound bizarre, but the wine is curiously drinkable in its own way. C+

2020 Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare Pink Wine of the Earth – Rose made from 79% grenache, 5% grenache gris, 5% grenache blanc, 5% vermentino, 3% cinsault, 1.5% picpoul, and 1.5% clairette blanche. Very dry, with a huge floral element to it. Things get a bit mushroomy as the wine develops in the glass, the finish going from grassy to vegetal, with a rather unripe character that lingers on the back end. Notes of lime leaf add a citrus pop to brighten things up a little. B-

Review: Milagro Tequila, Core Lineup (2021)

Review: Milagro Tequila, Core Lineup (2021)
Milagro Tequila Reposado (2021)

Robert Lublin May 22, 2021

The Milagro line of tequilas has expanded, but its original, core lineup continues to be a popular, affordable, and widely available option that we last reviewed in 2015. Let’s try the most recent bottlings and see how they compare to earlier ones.

All expressions continue to be 100% blue agave and 80 proof.

Milagro Tequila Silver (2021) – The vegetal agave note and touch of sweetness that appeared previously show up again on the nose and are joined by a touch of brine and antiseptic. On the palate, this tequila is unexpectedly harsh and closed off, with mild sweetness and pepper coming through. The finish is fairly short, once more introducing an antiseptic note that lingers. There appears to be some inconsistency in the bottling because I remember enjoying this more when I tried it in the past. C / $23 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Milagro Tequila Reposado (2021) – Rested in American oak barrels for 2 to 4 months, this is an improvement over the Silver. The nose includes light agave, sweetness, and a touch of brine as well as some sandalwood, which we noted in 2015. The harshness of the palate has been mellowed by the time it spent in wood, and some agave notes on the nose and palate mix with cinnamon, pepper, and a bit of green pepper. The finish is still rather short, but the antiseptic note is largely gone, at least. B- / $26 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Review: Stellum Bourbon and Rye

Review: Stellum Bourbon and Rye
Stellum Bourbon

Drew Beard May 22, 2021

It already seemed like Barrell was sitting on a large supply of whiskey, what with its rapid-fire bourbon releases and frequent special editions, but now comes an entirely new whiskey line from Barrell Craft Spirits, dubbed Stellum. What does Stellum mean? Apparently, it’s a derivative of the latin word for star. So, there’s that. The initial portfolio includes a bourbon, rye, and single barrels of each, all bottled at cask strength.

How does Stellum compare to Barrell’s other products? Well, the whiskeys are still made from sourced bourbon and rye from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, but they’re less complex blends according to the press release and reportedly include more Indiana-sourced juice. While some older stock is used, the core blend for the bourbon is 5 to 6 years old while the rye is 4 to 10 years. The biggest difference may be the price point which clocks in at nearly half of a typical Barrell batch release. We received a sample of both the bourbon and the rye for review. Let’s dig in!

Stellum Bourbon – The nose is exceptionally gentle for a cask strength whiskey, with a subtle aroma of brown butter and dark brown sugar. It’s not overly complex, but there’s a nice depth to it. On the palate, the cask strength is more apparent with a bit of red pepper heat that builds across the sip and lingers well into the finish. Notes of caramel sauce, apple slices, and subtler dark fruits make for an engaging palate, although that peppery heat does tend to get in the way a bit towards the end, drying things out prematurely. A few drops of water help to dull some of the chili pepper and broaden the aroma. 115 proof. B+ / $55 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Stellum Rye – This is reportedly built around the 95/5 MGP mashbill with some Kentucky and Tennessee rye for accent. On the nose, there’s definitely that familiar sweet, dilly spice, but it’s not nearly as domineering as some MGP ryes I’ve encountered. The more vegetal notes are well-balanced against a sweet sawn wood element and some soft baking spice. It’s extremely approachable at cask strength with an easy, even heat and an oily palate showcasing a nice balance of black pepper, clove, and buttery cinnamon toast. The finish is a touch shorter than I’d prefer, but there’s still a lot to like about this one. Ideal for neat sipping or in an elevated cocktail. 116 proof. A- / $55 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Locogen and Logan Energy help Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery move towards Net-Zero Dram – Scotch Whisky News

Locogen and Logan Energy help Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery move towards Net-Zero Dram – Scotch Whisky News

On Burns Night (January 25th) we were delighted to announce that Locogen’s client, the Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery, had won Phase 1 funding from the Green Distilleries competition run by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to investigate switching from gas oil to hydrogen for their primary process fuel.

So it’s fitting that, on World Whisky Day, we can announce that after a successful Phase 1 feasibility study, Arbikie are applying for Phase 2 funding – and a share of a £10 million funding pot – to implement zero-carbon green hydrogen as their primary process fuel.

The Green Distilleries fund aims to help distilleries cut CO2 emissions by one million tonnes, contributing to Scotland’s national target to be carbon neutral by 2045, with each distillery deploying innovative green solutions in order to achieve these ambitious goals.

Arbikie Highland Estate Distillery are determined to find a low carbon alternative to gas oil to further improve their already impressive sustainability and environmental credentials.

Renewable energy specialist Locogen and hydrogen technology expert Logan Energy are therefore partnering with Arbikie to deliver an innovative solution, using green hydrogen produced onsite using electrolysis from wind and solar generation as the zero-carbon fuel for the distillation process.

K&L Exclusive Back In Stock: Michel Couvreur’s Inimitable Peated Malt Whisky – Whisky News

K&L Exclusive Back In Stock: Michel Couvreur’s Inimitable Peated Malt Whisky – Whisky News


K&L Exclusive Sherry-Aged Whisky: Michel Couvreur’s “Peaty Overaged”
Michel Couvreur “Peaty Overaged” K&L Exclusive Malt Whisky (750ml) ($79.99)
“…one of the most authentic and absolutely delicious malts on the market…This new batch of Couvreur is better than ever!” — David Othenin-Girard, K&L Spirits Buyer

In their constant search for the world’s most unique and compelling spirits, our buying team routinely discovers truly stupendous offerings exclusive to K&L. One of our favorites over the years has been the Michel Couvreur “Peaty Overaged.” What’s truly remarkable is where this inimitable dram comes from—a deep, dark cellar in the heart of Burgundy. The late Michel Couvreur arrived here in the 1960s and set about acquiring impressive stocks of new-make single malt Scotch and cultivating one of the most well-sourced sherry-cask regimens in the whisky world. Now produced by his long-time apprentice, this peated K&L Exclusive is, as spirits buyer David Othenin-Girard describes, a “wildly high-quality…whisky with a French sensibility.” For any lover of incredibly expressive sherry cask whisky, this is a must-try bottling that will leave you stunned, thrilled, and totally addicted to the style that is none other than Michel Couvreur.

Michel Couvreur “Peaty Overaged” K&L Exclusive Malt Whisky (750ml) ($79.99)

The chance to work with Michel Couvreur on a special K&L whisky project was something that we had been dreaming of for years. We had heard the stories. This innovative Belgian had moved to Burgundy in the ’60s, carved out a wine cellar inside a mountain, only to fill it with Scottish single malt whisky instead of Pinot Noir. He set up camp in Beaune, ordered new-make spirit to be delivered by tanker, and drove down to Jerez himself, selecting his own sherry butts to ensure the finest quality casks for his contracted spirit. Unfortunately, Michel Couvreur passed away in 2013 from pancreatic cancer, thus ending the career of one of the industry’s most courageous pioneers. Luckily for us, however, apprentice Jean-Arnaud has carried on after studying under Michel for more than a decade. When we visited the underground cave, we were all in total awe. The tunnels of dripping stone go on forever, and the amount of whisky stored in this secret lair is jawdropping. We put our trust completely in Jean-Arnaud and are happy we did. Our peated version of the incredible sherry expression is a seamless creation that drinks like the best version of Johnnie Black ever, mixed with the most supple and soft expressions of Macallan. It’s a lush, unfiltered, creamy, caramel-laden dream of a whisky composed only of malts 12 years and older. There’s a bit of peat on the finish, but the soft sherry is the star. (NOTE: do NOT cut the hard wax seal—use a wine opener to go through it)

Review: Runamok Maple Syrups and Bitters

Review: Runamok Maple Syrups and Bitters
Runamok Syrup Maple Old Fashioned

Runamok is a producer of traditional maple syrup in Vermont, and the company recently branched out into cocktail ingredients, where maple has long been popular. Today we take a look at six different Runamok products — four syrups and two types of bitters — all made with glorious tree juice at their core (and no refined sugar).

Runamok Syrup Maple Old Fashioned – This orange-laced syrup evokes the immediate essence of gingersnaps, with a slight fruitiness in the form of figs and dates underneath. The maple syrup character is present but less overbearingly sweet than you might expect, offering a touch of earthiness to a truly unique palate. It really shines with whiskey, melding beautifully with caramel and chocolate notes and bringing out the fruitiness in the spirit. A- / $17 per 250ml bottle

Runamok Syrup Maple Ginger Mule – A much different experience, this is intense with both ginger and lime, giving it a sharp acidity that rapidly washes away much of the sweetness underneath — although some notes of caramel emerge on the finish. I struggled to find the right balance with this one in a cocktail made with vodka and sparkling water, but you might have better luck. B / $17 per 250ml bottle

Runamok Syrup Maple Smoked Old Fashioned – Made with cherry juice (or orange essence, depending on if you believe the bottle or the website), and tons of smoked pecan wood. A bit of a butterscotch kick on the finish. While I love a smoky cocktail, the impact here is a bit overpowering, and in a mixed drink I might consider tempering the smoke effect by going half and half with the standard Old Fashioned syrup (or just plain simple syrup). Even then, I think the non-smoked recipe pairs better with whiskey. B+ / $17 per 250ml bottle
