Bulleit Rye is widely available these days, and it’s even sold locally in Israel, and at a reasonable …

Elijah Craig 12 Year Old Barrel Proof

If you’re a Bourbon or whiskey fan, you’ve probably tried the 12 year old Elijah Craig, whic is brilliant and very well priced IMHO.

Fermented with a traditional ale yeast and distilled in copper pots, the spirit is aged in new charred oak for more than 2 years. I was given a sample of this whiskey …
