World Whisky Day with The Whisky Exchange – World Whisky News


May 14th, 2021

World Whisky Day takes place every year on the third Saturday in May – a celebration of all things whisky that gives rise to tastings and events all over the world, and one we think is a fantastic opportunity to consider whisky as a truly global spirit. No longer just the domain of Scotland, Ireland and the US, the water of life is now flowing from almost every continent and there’s an ever-expanding list of countries for you to choose from.

In the spirit of exploration that has come to define modern whisky, we think this is the perfect opportunity to try some new bottles from across the globe. Check out our Top 10 World Whiskies for a little inspiration!

Review: Wines of Smith-Madrone, 2021 Releases

2017 Smith-Madrone Riesling Spring Mountain District

Christopher Null May 13, 2021

Damaged — but saved — during the horrific fires that swept through Napa in 2020, Smith-Madrone is finally back up and running at apparently full speed, despite having no phone service for more than 3 months.

We recently received three bottlings from the mountain-based winery for review, all of which are current vintages. Thoughts follow.

2017 Smith-Madrone Riesling Spring Mountain District – Fruity and floral but mostly dry, this riesling is a crowd pleaser with an exuberance on the palate that features lemons, figs, gooseberry, and melon notes. Lots of honey on the palate as the wine develops, sweetening up and showing more fruit and just a hint of oxidation. There’s also some saline minerality here, which is effective at brightening up the wine and giving it a sunny and satisfying sense of balance on the finish. A- / $34

Bar Review: Kokomo, Williamsburg, New York City



David Tao May 13, 2021

Sometimes, you just need to get away. And when a tropical paradise seems out of reach, we often find ourselves searching for the next-best proxy. For New York City residents looking for a more temporary escape, Williamsburg’s Kokomo is a worthwhile consideration — at least when cravings call for sweeter drinks and bolder, spicier dishes.

Let’s get right to the cocktails, though the establishment’s layout and vibe are more geared to dinner and drinks as opposed to just the latter. Beverage Director Rael Petit’s menu centers around fresh juice, and they certainly deliver.

The Pain Killer takes a base of coconut cream and punches things up with both orange pineapple juices, but a heavy nutmeg finish actually cuts what might otherwise be overwhelming sweetness. The Tiki Aperol Spritz is much tarter than you’d expect and carries well through an entire appetizer course. The Good Vibez — topped with a custom “street art” display of Angostura Bitters — melds passionfruit with egg white for something that borders on dessert in a glass.

More impressive was “We Limin’,” which finishes Grey Goose, St. Germain, lime juice, and guava cordial with a heavy crack of black pepper. It’s a smart choice to start off the evening that won’t coat the palate too much at the beginning.
