Golden Moon Distillery Receives a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) – American Whiskey News

Golden Moon Distillery Receives a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) – American Whiskey News

Golden Moon Distillery Receives a Double Gold Medal at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC)

Golden, CO (23 April, 2021) – Golden Moon Distillery, founded in 2008 by Master Distiller Stephen Gould and Karen Knight, received A DOUBLE GOLD Medal for Golden Moon Triple – A Colorado Single Malt Whiskey.

Golden Moon Distillery has now taken major awards (i.e. gold medal or above at one of the most respected spirits competitions in the industry) with every single grain-to-glass product we’ve produced at Golden Moon (and by that we mean mashed, fermented, distilled, matured and bottled at Golden Moon Distillery).

Golden Moon Distillery was given “Highly Commended” for Distiller of the Year (i.e. first runner up).

According to Mr. Gould “It’s been a busy few weeks. Taking double gold and gold medals at the the San Francisco World Spirits Competition … We’ve been very fortunate this spring to get this level of attention and number of accolades from the spirits industry. Golden Moon has survived the pandemic and is headed in a great direction.”

Review: One Eight Distilling Untitled Whiskey No. 17

Review: One Eight Distilling Untitled Whiskey No. 17
One Eight Distilling Untitled Whiskey No. 17

Drew Beard May 15, 2021

Washington, D.C.’s One Eight Distilling is out with another edition in their Untitled whiskey line, No. 17. Fans of the brand may be wondering how No. 17 was released after last year’s No. 18. No, distiller Alex Laufer isn’t bad at math (I don’t think). When asked, he told me there was no good reason why they chose to release No. 17 now. It’s been a year, folks, so we’ll consider that a perfectly acceptable answer. As for the makeup of this release, Untitled No. 17 is a combination of 10-year-old wheated bourbon finished in rum (three different kinds), Calvados, and Cognac casks and a 14 year old high-rye bourbon finished in an Amontillado sherry butt. That sounds like quite the marriage of flavors. Let’s dig in!

The nose on this whiskey is deep and sultry, with savory notes of worn leather, old books, and antique furniture accented with a bit of golden raisin and bitter dark fruit, bordering on aromatized wine. There’s lots of damp basement here, but in a good way. It’s soulful and complex. The palate is rich with stewed red fruits, both sweet and sour, alongside a bit of tinned orchard fruit. Clove-studded orange and berry compote ad brightness, while a contrasting bit of baking chocolate and light roast coffee bean introduce richness and a touch a taste-bud puckering astringency. All those different cask finishes have really come together in a unique and surprisingly harmonious way to offer a whiskey that is quite wine-forward yet still retains the spice, sweetness, and sizeable body of the underlying spirit. The finish is generous and smoldering with berry pie, a bit of sweet pipe tobacco, and more of that bittersweet balance, almost reminiscent of a fine whiskey cocktail. One of my favorite Untitled releases to date.

115.8 proof.

Review: Indeed Brewing Flavorwave IPA and Mexican Honey Light Lager

Review: Indeed Brewing Flavorwave IPA and Mexican Honey Light Lager
Indeed Brewing Company Mexican Honey Light

Rob Theakston May 15, 2021


Minneapolis comes correct once again. Any city which can stake claim to Mary Richards, Prince, Michael Cina, and Rod Carew gets a massive thumbs up from this fella. Expectations for these Indeed Brewing releases were high, to be held at this same level of excellence of notable residents both real and fictional. We received two beers for consideration. Let’s see if either of them turn the world on.

Indeed Brewing Company Flavorwave IPA – Aesthetically hitching its wagon to the Vaporwave music trend, Indeed’s IPA does not flex towards trendiness, nor does it recycle anything from decades past. Flavorwave stays well within the boundaries of a classic, fruity IPA: surprisingly clear and brilliantly gold in color, with a giant burst of grapefruit and peach on the nose. On the palate there’s a heavy dose of tropical and citrus: pineapple, mild guava, and ripe peach that never gets too complicated or hop-heavy. There’s a little bit of malt on the finish, but it only serves to complement the fruit-heavy notes of passionfruit and grapefruit that are long and lingering. This could be one to have at the ready all summer long. 6.2% abv. A-

Indeed Brewing Company Mexican Honey Light – This is very much as advertised. A light orange, nearly copper pour with a little bit of haze that is sweet honey and citrus on the nose. This runs straight through the palate and finish, where it’s all orange and honey with a good measure of bread and malt influence somewhere in between. It is quite light and easy drinking, making it both easy on the waistline and taste buds. However, it makes me most curious to experience the non-Light iteration to experience the brew’s full punch. Not exactly a Sign O’ The Times or Purple Rain-level of housequake, but not Carmen Electra’s solo album or 20Ten either. 5.2% abv. B [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Wine coffee from Sumatra? You must try it says island native turned entrepreneur

Wine coffee from Sumatra? You must try it says island native turned entrepreneur
image

I had a hard time finding coffee that had the special flavors that I used to drink in Aceh, so I decided to bring my own specialty coffee to Seattle.”

— Cintha Putri

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Seattle coffee lovers will soon be able to fill their cups with new choices for gourmet coffee that have never been tasted in America before. Since moving from Indonesia to Seattle, local entrepreneur Cintha Putri has missed savoring the rich coffee flavors she’d enjoyed in her home province of Aceh, Sumatra. For the past year Putri has worked to find and secure fair trade deals with a women-owned coop in Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia to bring those memorable coffee flavors to her new home. Cintha Putri is ready to give Seattle and coffee lovers everywhere a coffee experience that it’s never enjoyed before!

On her inspiration for building her new company, Putri Coffee, Cintha Putri said, “I had a hard time finding coffee that had the special flavors that I used to drink in Aceh, so I decided to bring my own specialty coffee to Seattle. I want to share the smooth, Arabica coffee I had enjoyed in Aceh and the island of Sumatra with other coffee connoisseurs.”

Putri Coffee offers two highly unique coffees. The first is wild luwak coffee, one of the rarest types of coffee in the world. The coffee beans are harvested from the droppings of wild civets that visit the farms and eat the coffee cherries. The selective behavior of the cat-like animals, as well as the processing of the beans through their digestive systems, gives luwak coffee an exceptionally smooth taste.

Review: Milam & Green Port Finished Rye and Single Barrel Bourbon

Review: Milam & Green Port Finished Rye and Single Barrel Bourbon
Milam & Greene Port Finished Rye

Drew Beard May 15, 2021

Last year, we took a look at Milam & Greene’s Triple Cask Bourbon, a blend of sourced stocks and the distillery’s own bourbon distilled in Blanco, Texas. That younger, in-house bourbon is also now its own limited release, dubbed Distillery Edition, but the rest of the broader Milam & Greene portfolio relies heavily on sourced whiskey, primarily Tennessee bourbon and Indiana Rye, which are aged and finished in the harsh Texas environment. We received two samples of their single barrel bourbon and a Port-finished rye for review. Thoughts follow.

Milam & Greene Port Finished Rye – Since this is distilled in Indiana, we can assume it’s MGP rye. No information is available as to the specific finishing casks or the duration of finishing, although it is reportedly a batched product, so both may vary. The nose is subtle, but there’s a nice balance of sweet dark fruits and spicy, herbal rye. Notes of black pepper and ripe berries are accented with a touch of smoky barbecue sauce. On the palate, that balance continues with an even, gentle heat and a mix of mesquite smoke, stewed berries, and peppery burnt ends. The finish is generous and drying with tart, winey tannins, but that just keeps me dipping back into the glass. 94 proof. A- / $43 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Milam & Greene Single Barrel Straight Bourbon (Cask 370) – The nose here is burly and earthy with notes of boiled peanuts, pecans shells, and firewood. As it opens, a slight praline sweetness emerges, alongside more drying oak and some new leather. On the whole though, things stay rather savory. The palate is light with some welcome sweetness in the form of caramel candies, cinnamon sugar, and a bit of candied apple. For the modest proof, there’s still a nice smoldering heat reaching into the medium length finish, accented with pie spice and dried apples. 86 proof. B / $55 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Milam & Greene Single Barrel Straight Bourbon (Cask 335) – The aroma on this single barrel is less leathery and oak-driven, but it’s still on the drier side with peanut shells and some sawdust. As it opens, things sweeten with a bit of raw honey and a watery touch of butterscotch. On the palate, candy corn and some biting oak up front make give things a youthful edge. The mid-palate is a rather indistinguishable mix of baking spice and vanilla riding a thin, almost soupy, mouthfeel. The heat is softer as well, with a shorter finish and quickly fading notes of caramel and cherry candies. 86 proof. B- / $55 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 385: Caol Ila 9 Year Old 2010 WhiskySponge

We know WhiskySponge mostly from the wonderfully satrical blog in which he truly mocks everyone in the world of whisky. It comes as no surprise that the inimitable strong man behind the blog – Angus McRaild – finally brings whisky to the market himself. And the labels are fantastic: each and every one a hilarious cartoon. In the case of this young Caol Ila we see the Jedi Lord Sponge attacking an X-Wing piloted by an individual named Dave Bowman. If you have no idea what this is all about, nae worries. If you do  then you might, like Mark – certainly after reading the tasting notes on the back label – wet yourself a little bit with laughter. But for now, let’s focus on the contents of the bottle: a 9 years old Caol Ila.

Review: Lagunitas StereoHopic IPA Vol. 1

Review: Lagunitas StereoHopic IPA Vol. 1
Lagunitas StereoHopic IPA Vol. 1

Christopher Null May 14, 2021

The StereoHopic Series is a new endeavor from Lagunitas, an ongoing line of special release beers that will each feature a pair of hop varietals, to see if something magical happens when these hops appear in combination. First out of the gate with Vol. 1 is a beer made with suddenly popular plus the always reliable Mosaic hops.

Let’s taste.

Despite the reputation of both of the hops strains in this mix, this isn’t the most thrilling of IPAs, a rather ruddy, mushroomy beer that has a somewhat doughy, earthy composition, coming across as almost muddy at times. The purported tropical/fruity notes of Nelson Sauvin don’t really show at all here, though there’s a spritz of lemon peel up front that gives the beer a bit of life. I liked this less and less as I sipped on my sample bottle.
