  • Putnam New England Rye Whiskey from Boston Harbor Distillery – Offers a sharper, earthy finish that you can only get from Rye and it wraps the whole experience up for an unforgettable silky, smooth whiskey.
  • Nor’Easter Bourbon Whiskey by Triple Eight Distillery – The climate and geography have a noticeable impact on the taste of the bourbon. The distillery’s proximity to the ocean and marine haze (Nantucket is nicknamed “The Grey Lady” ) add a touch of salinity to the bourbon.
  • Rowan’s Creek Bourbon Whiskey by Willett Distillery – On the palate you are treated to sweet caramel, vanilla, dusted in floral notes… Finishing notes of oak and a lingering spiciness.

We’re always so thankful (and excited) when Hugh Hamilton personally comes to Mystic Wine Shoppe (from Australia) to host a wine tasting.  This weekend was no exception, and we had a great turn out for our Saturday tasting with Hugh. We encourage you to visit the Hugh Hamilton Wines website to learn more about their delicious wines, which can only be found at Mystic Wine Shoppe (out of the US)… How lucky are we?!
