Staff Pick Notes

What makes a good American whiskey? Single barrel production? Limited availability? Sherry cask aging? Collectible bottle stoppers? Rhyming with "Happy Stan Crinkle"? HYPE? I don't think whiskey has to be "special" to be good. Drinkability, after all, is in the mouth of the beholder. And sometimes, I just want a Manhattan that won't distract me from my conversation. Or a Sazerac that doesn't have a triple digit proof. Old Overholt is perfect for cocktails that you want to sip with ease. Plus, it's quite the national establishment, boasting over 200 years in production. It's a basic, starter rye in every sense: bright, grassy, and subtly sweet, with a comfy 40% ABV. Sometimes it okay to be basic!
