FA Gin Dry, juniper forward, a bulldozer of juniper  5 
FW Martini A really good dry vermouth  4 6

VT Russian Vodka Has a bit of a citrus sweet note to it, akin to drinking a sprite. Has a slight “kick” or “bite”. Has a slight “cooling” note 2 13 
VT Cherry Liquor Very medicinal, cherry very sweet cough syrup  3 18 
TFA Brandy Not boozy, oddly creamy, has a warmth with a fruity sweet cream with a vanilla finish 2-4 22 
FA Liquid Amber Makes a really good brandy, with a grapy sort of tart  23

VT Cognac Bitter taste in your mouth,   26 
INW Godfather Strong, bitter, fruity, almost jammy or syrupy .5-1.5 28

OOO Bourbon Whiskey A bourbon flavored crayon or candle 3 36 
RF Bourbon Decent oak note, a little bit savory, odd dry thin body  37 
FW Whiskey Like a bourbon with dog food mixed in with it. Specifically dry dog food. Will work to make warm bakery mixes. But not that well as a cocktail mix 1 38 
FA Whiskey More like a scotch flavor, has a bite, is a bit dry,   41 
VT Scotch Whiskey Leads with the booze, very warm, accurate, has some peat taste to it, tastes aged, and has a very strong alcoholic like kick to it 4 45 
MB JD Whiskey Very sweet, no boozy note, almost flavorless finish, old hamburger meat mixed in the middle 3 48 
German Flavors Whiskey Tastes like cotton candy dissolved in whiskey, and also tastes like dry erase marker dust 6 50 
FW Fire Whiskey Tastes like red hot cinnamon and cheap whiskey. Not a lot of boozy bite, slightly warm 2 52 
FA Jamaica Special Rhum Dark, but un spiced rum, has two shortcomings: not very boozy and it is way too sweet. Very dark brown sugar that ramps up faster than the booze does 1-3 58
