Ole Smoky Amaretto Whiskey Review + The Godfather Cocktail


We packed a whole lot of stuff into today’s video:

  1. A review of an Amaretto Whiskey from Ole Smoky Distillery of Gatlinburg, Tennessee
  2. A review of a very pretty and sturdy 17 ounce mixing glass from Barfly by Mercer
  3. We make and review The Godfather Cocktail

All that and a couple of bad Don Corleone impersonations in under 7 minutes. That’s some impressive stuff if we do say so ourselves. Which we just did!

Here’s a bit of information about all that we’ll be covering…
