About

Booze Guru; where we don’t just write reviews, but also hope to entertain & educate.

Wit, wisdom, practicality, humor… and, let’s face it, impracticality.  All can be found here in one way or another.  This isn’t just about the booze, it’s about opinions, traditions, old ways, new views, seeking trends, bucking trends, and breaking trends.

More than just one man’s quest for the perfect Gibson.

Everyone remembers their first taste of hard liquor.  Eron Garcia’s was Jack Daniels.  And over 20 years later, he can’t smell the stuff without going into dry heaves.

Education, experimentation, and experience have managed to temper his palate.  Along with his super-taster wife and a small team of friends, the Booze Guru sets sail for new cocktail territories.

The Facts:

  1. All alcohol taste-tested and reviewed herein is done so by American adults age 30 or older.
  2. All alcohol is taste-tested and reviewed at room temperature (66 to 76 degrees Fahrenheit) and in one fluid ounce increments (or less) unless otherwise noted in the review.
  3. No one has been bribed, bullied, coerced, tricked, nor financially compensated for the reviews, recipes, opinions and advice contained herein.
  4. We do not taste-test nor review alcohol at bars.
  5. We will taste-test, review, and create recipes upon request.

  1. Well mate… I nominated your blog for a Liebster Award! Keep up the good work!

  2. Is 100 year old rye whiskey still good to drink?

    • It should be fine as long as the cork didn’t deteriorate. If it stayed nicely sealed, it should be quite smooth (just don’t shake the bottle!) The concern is whether or not it avoided contamination for the past 100 years. If there’s any chance that cork didn’t hold, don’t tempt fate!

      • Thank you. The level of liquid in bottle has dropped an inch or so and has no sediment whatever in it. The cap seems to be maybe lead? Not sure, but this particular whiskey was delivered via us mail to my great great grandfather. Seems that it should go to a museum and not consumed. Worth any $? Thank you Sam

      • You’d think this would be a booze question, but its really an antiques question. I’d wager it’s worth some cash, but: seek out an antiques seller.
