Clear & Brown File
I think likes and dislikes are important here as it can play a role in a review. My drink of choice is a peaty scotch like Laphroaig or Ardmore. I am still working my way through the shelves of bourbons, but on the whole, I find them a bit sweet — presumably due to the level of corn in the mix.

I like Tullamore Dew. I can’t say that it has a certain taste profile that will wow you — I can only say that for a bottle of Irish Whiskey in the low $20 range, it is worth having in your rotation of spirits. I kept it as my house whiskey for a long time — and only made a switch to shake things up a bit. All I can say is that it’s whiskey — it’s Irish — and it’s decently smooth.

Simply stated — I love this gin. I originally bought it on a recommendation from a friend and have kept it as my house gin ever since. It is one of three offerings from The Philadelphia Distilling Company (I will cover the other two products at a later date). It is extremely smooth and very reasonably priced (around the same price point as your Bombays and Tanquerays).
This is a small batch gin done in a hand-hammered copper pot still. It can be enjoyed in a martini or with tonic. Either way, I can guarantee you will enjoy it.More >
This is a delicious single malt made by the Admore Distillery. The palate is very peaty and as Ardmore suggests, really opens up with just a touch of water. Overall, it is something I will look to buy again
