Mora’s July Spirit Tasting

Food & Wine, Spirits of the month Clubs, Wine & Spirit Events, Wine & Spirits in The News? Comments Off

 

Mora’s is having a FREE Monthly Spirit Tasting on July 19 from 4-7 – and you’re invited!

LAGAVULIN: This limited edition 8-year single malt Scotch whisky is a special 200th anniversary bottling – when it’s gone, it’s gone. Don’t miss out on your chance to sample its light, pleasing aroma and layered, smoky flavors!

DON JULIO ANEJO CLARO: An incredible, crystal clear Anejo tequila. It starts with a lively aroma of citrus fruit and caramel notes. The flavor is sublime: fresh honey with notes of peppercorn, lemon and tobacco. It ends with a long, clean finish!

BLADE & BOW BOURBON: Fruity but not too sweet, warm but not too toasty – this new Kentucky bourbon is one to remember. It’s aged using a unique Solera system.

This Father’s Day, Get Dad What He Really Wants

Whiskey Wednesday, Wine & Spirit Events Comments Off
This Father’s Day, Get Dad What He Really Wants. 

At our FREE Monthly Spirits Tasting on June 15 from 4-7.

“Dad, this rum is as old as you!” Well, not quite, but it is pretty old. (Just like dad! Just kidding. Don’t tell him we said that).

This is Gosling’s family reserve recipe – the ultimate sipping rum, reminiscent of a fine Scotch or cognac. Enjoy its luscious, complex flavor while enjoying dad’s company. 

These bottles are hand-packaged with care – definitely a great gift. 

SHOP NOW >>

See the rest of our whiskey deals below!
Have you ever tasted a rum that’s rated a whopping NINETY SIX POINTS? Seriously, a sip of this is worth the price of admission (and in case you’ve missed it, the price of admission is FREE).

It’s hard to overstate how awesome this rum is. Dark amber with a medium body, it’s not a rough-and-tumble pirate rum – quite the opposite! We love its smooth, round taste and elegant finish.

And it’s on sale for under $20? Seriously. Best Father’s Day gift ever.

Jefferson’s is great for the dad who’s a bourbon enthusiast but also for the dad who’s just getting into bourbon (what’s taken him so long?!).

For this whiskey, Jefferson’s takes four straight bourbons of different ages and marries them together, meaning layers and layers of delicious flavors.

SHOP NOW >>

How to become dad’s favorite kid: get him a bourbon that was AGED ON A BOAT. You can’t get a cooler gift than that. 

Jefferson’s Ocean Bourbon is packed into barrels, brought onto a ship, and rocked gently by the waves as it travels five continents.

This dark, rich, and complex whiskey sells out quickly - we’re lucky to have a few bottles, so snag yours now!

SHOP NOW >>

This elegant Irish whiskey is a great gift for the dad who wants to try something different.

With clean, bright citrus on the nose, it has malty, vanilla flavors. Well-balanced and slightly sweet, it’s a kinder, gentler Irish whiskey.
