January 2014

Becherovka

Many spirits companies have released products they hope will siphon off some of Jagermeister’s thunder, but once-obscure Czech liqueur Becherovka might have a good chance at it thanks to Pernod Ric

Dos Maderas 5 + 3 Rum

Dark rum and rich sherry each make for a wonderful winter beverage, but in this product they share space in the same bottle: The rum is aged for five years in the Caribbean before it is transferred

Oskar Blues Old Chub

This malty Scotch Ale is flavorful enough to sip by itself, but also plays nice with your favorite winter fare.
