Five O’clock on Friday: Knob Creek, Monkey Shoulder, or Bulleit Edition

Spread the love

Every Friday we try to end the week on a non-political note. Right when it’s time to leave work we post up something that showcases the good food, better drinks, and even better friends and family that we’re going to enjoy over the weekend.

This weekend, because of Facebook and Twitter demonetizing us, we’re doing things a little different. It takes money to run a website, not to mention paying ourselves a little something – so we’re getting creative with our fundraising and asking you to help us keep the site running by covering our costs for our nightly whiskey, plus you get to pick which bottle we buy with this week’s donations. Scroll down for some great memes, plus to learn about our 3 favorite whiskey brands and vote for which one we drink at our next get together.

Monkey Shoulder

Master of Malt reviews with the following:

Monkey Shoulder Scotch is a superb blended malt whisky from William Grant, made with single malts from three famous Speyside distilleries. The result is a smooth, creamy, supple and very malty Scotch which works superbly well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails (where it really excels).

Click here to make a donation and vote towards our whiskey bottle this week, (or feel free to buy us a full bottle so we can keep the memes coming!) Monkey Shoulder is probably the main thing we drink, but if you want more memes or vote for another whiskey, keep scrolling down.

Knob Creek

The Spruce Eats gives us this great review of Knob Creek:

Knob Creek Bourbon is 100 proof (50% ABV) and because of this, it packs a slightly alcoholic punch on the nose, but underneath the alcohol lies an impressive array of aromas. The full bouquet comes to life by adding a splash of cool water.

Rich wood notes, warm vanilla pound cake, maple sugar, fresh roasted almonds and fleur de sel caramel notes abound, creating a veritable gourmet banquet of delicious aromas to entice your palate.

Knob Creek is a great whiskey and definitely worthy of your vote. It’s 100 proof, so it has a little bit of a kick at first, but it tastes amazing. Vote once for a dollar or six times for $5. Click here to vote and make your donation.

We’d also be honored if you want to just buy us a full bottle!

Bulleit

The Whiskey Jug describes Bulleit Bourbon like this:

Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey has been something of a darling in the bourbon industry over the last few years. It’s cheap, it’s flavorful and it’s as versatile as a whiskey can be making it a favorite of whiskey drinkers and bartenders alike. One of the things that sets Bulleit apart from other bourbons is it’s very high rye content in the mash bill which gives it a spicy kick that balances nicely with the sweet bourbon notes.

Bulleit pairs the best with cigars, and it’s also the least expensive of the three. Click here if you want to vote for Bulleit, remember it’s $1 for one vote or $5 for six votes. We also wouldn’t mind if you’d like to just get us a full bottle as well in exchange for us keeping you awash in memes!
