Items of Note:

This article by Megan Krigbaum, in Punch, leads us down her path of attempts to discover what basic expenses are figured into the price of a single bottle of wine.  She was inspired by that $3.50 bargain wine her mom was so excited to bring home.  It just doesn’t quite add up!  

How Do You Make a Wine That Costs $3.50?

 

Here’s a quick article by Mike Dunne of the Sacramento Bee, where he talks about two of our favorite California winemakers, Anne and Michael Dashe.

Dunne on Wine: Dashe Cellars

 

Read this article by Simon Woolf, Decanter, regarding sulfites in wines.  See some of the pros and cons- flavors, safety, allergies.  A little known fact- the vast majority of wines have very little sulfites!

State Line Liquors Rated #3 Bottle Shop in the WORLD!

Max's Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Max’s Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Feb. 17, 2015 –By Steve Fogelman, City Paper. “Last month, just two establishments in Maryland were honored as “Top Places to Have a Beer in the World” by the crowd-sourced RateBeer.com annual survey. Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore and State Line Liquors in Elkton made the cut, which makes sense, as both are hallowed Free State beer grounds for aficionados. I caught up with the owners of both businesses by phone while they were coincidentally on separate and simultaneous vacations in Florida earlier this month. The traits these businesses share, such as family and dedication to the craft scene, are the underpinnings of their success… READ the FULL ARTICLE at:

What is a “Tap Social?”

Well, a Tap Social is similar to a “Rep Tasting”… a casual get-together for sampling beers from a single brewery and are generally held on Friday afternoons from 5pm to 7pm.  Most of the time we charge a nominal fee to “participate” in this 2 hour social. For that fee, you usually get a free glass along with unlimited sampling! The beers are generously discounted and often the reps will have giveaways on top of it!

State Line’s Selected Single Barrels:

Rhum Clement Cask Collection Vieux    $36.99  750ml

This rum hails from the French Caribbean island of Martinique in the Lesser Antilles. The French government oversees the production of Rhum Agricole which is produced from sugar cane juice that is pressed within three days of harvest in the dry season, This produces a dryer style rum with complex grassy and herbal flavors. This is a barrel we selected last winter that was bottled in July and it has just arrived!

Single Barrel Four Roses

OBSV 2016 Bottling

9 Year & 5 Month Old Barrel Strength Bourbon

$64.99

This is our third of three Four Rose’s barrels this year and it yielded 126 bottles for us and 141 for the Angels. The OBSV mash-bill consists of 60% corn, 35% rye and 5% malted barley. The yeast strain used creates a bourbon with light fruitiness, caramel, vanilla and a creamy texture. The high Rye content adds spice and intensity to the flavor. This has been bottled undiluted at 57.4% alcohol. Along with the OESK a virtual tie for our favorite barrel or the year!

 

Single Barrel Four Roses

OESK Recipe –2016 Bottling

9 Year & 7 Month Old Barrel Strength Bourbon

$69.99 / Bottle

This is our second of three Four Rose’s barrels this year and it yielded 150 bottles for us, and 117 for the Angels.

The OESK mashbill creates a Bourbon with a full bodied and lightly spicy flavor profile. The mashbill consists of 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% malted barley and OESK was a high portion of the whiskey used for the heralded 2015 Limited Edition.

This has been bottled undiluted at 57.7% alcohol. One of our favorite barrels this year!

 

Crown Royal Single Barrel  $54.99  750ml  This is a Coffey Rye Whiskey from a Coffey still that is among the finest components of Crown Royal and bottled at 103 proof to maintain its richness and body. This is the finest expression of Crown Royal we have ever had in the store!!

 

Two Barrels From FEW Distillery!

FEW Distillery is based in Evanston, IL, a suburb of Chicago that was once an international headquarters for the temperance movement headed by Francis Elizabeth Willard (FEW).
FEW Spirits is a craft distillery making whiskies and gins from locally grown grains and other ingredients sourced as close to home as possible, including Cascade hops grown in master distiller and owner Paul Hletko’s own backyard.
FEW Rye Whiskey was named Whisky Advocates Craft Whiskey of the Year in 2013 and its Bourbon Whiskey and Barrel Gin were both awarded gold medals by Beverage Testing Institute.

Bourbon Whiskey 60.05 %ABV Batch 15-56   $66.99

Spicy, nutty nose, soft caramel and toffee.  Bright butterscotch, toasty cinnamon, faint bittersweet chocolate, and a lingering, sweetish finish.

Rye Whiskey 60%ABV Batch 15-56   $79.99

Distinctive spicy rye presence on the nose, citrus peel, piney oak, which carry through with significant depth mid palate.  Lingering spicy sweet finish.
