          Dominican Republic Island Rum -
 
     3) Ron Gran Reserva 1888  doblemente anejado rum, only 613 barricas, from BRUGAL in the Dominican Republic, On Special for $49.99 a bottle : the top level of flavor and taste, so much power and yet a smooth silkiness as well, a silvery shiny golden fire that elicits a positive appeal and pleasure with some nice burn, some added distinct layers of flavors that take several sips to define and realize are there as you settle back for a wonderful Dominican Rrepublic magic carpet ride. Recommended.
 
 
          Japanaese Whisky -
 
     4) Toki SUNTORY Whisky from the House of SUNTORY , whisky established in 1923  : almost their 100 year anniversary! On Special for $41.99 a bottle, with 43% alcohol, glad to have this back. It was missing in action for a number of years, and with all the fascination of what Japan adds to the whisky category, this is great to have back here once again. Cheers.

     5) Royal SEal Vodka from Jos A.

Like a great song, like a great tenor - the middle range notes are so expressive and alive, and the swallow and end flavors just linger and linger!

     6) Checherbark American Dry Gin from District Distilling Co. , made by master distiller Matt Strickland , On Special for $30.99 a bottle, with 47% alcohol by volume, this has more weight and texture, mouth-feel, and is a treat when you want some silk and bright polish and some extra creamy-dreamy layers of taste - like mille feuilles, going in that direction : like a fine croissant.
