Basil Hayden, neat.
Alright… my alcohol tastings are long overdue. Time to try another Irish Whiskey!
Since I finished off the John L. Sullivan a few weeks ago, I wanted another Irish Whiskey back in my collection. With Ben’s help, I purchased the Redbreast 12 Year Old Cask Strength.
And oh boy, this packs a punch! Weighing in at 115.4 proof, you definitely feel the potency!
This whiskey is a flavor explosion in your mouth! Flavors of banana, caramel, oak, spices, and vanilla. It is sweet yet spicy, a wonderful combination to sip. Definitely a new favorite!
The Gil Pender - Invented August 24th, 2013
Bourbon - Aperol - Sweet Vermouth - Allspice Dram
A Boulevardier is defined as “a frequenter of the Parisian boulevards.” By taking the classic cocktail and adding Allspice Dram, it gives it an almost romantic spice that you would want to enjoy on a rainy night. Enter Gil Pender, the protagonist from Midnight in Paris. A man who walks the streets of Paris at night, hoping to be transformed to a magical time (Paris in the 1920’s) and thinks the city is most beautiful at night and in the rain. He is a hopeless romantic, a man who spent time in his golden era and learned how he could improve his life from it, a modern Boulevardier: The Gil Pender.
