The Melbourne beer scene has quickly become sophisticated and new varieties are emerging from super talented boutique brewers. Enter Kolsch, previously known to be a German specialty beer.
Brand new to the market as of December last year we like to consider the Kolsch the ‘new black’ with only 2 other breweries producing Kolsch within Australia.
The Quiet Deeds Kolsch is the third instalment from the Melbourne based brand alongside the Pale Ale and India Pale Ale. Quiet Deeds is the creation of two Melbourne blokes (Patrick Ale & Dave Milstein – how are the names?!) living the Aussie dream of producing their own brew.
Finding that perfect gift can be an ordeal in the Christmas rush. For the discerning drinker nothing is finer than Jack Daniel's, to be enjoyed over the festive season. Top notch Tennessee whiskey with a heritage appeal.
Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack is the perfect gift, with a ultra stylish bottle and a smooth rare whiskey that has been prepared through the most creative and exacting process. Charcoal mellowed before going into the barrel, and then charcoal mellowed again after reaching maturity, it's the only whiskey in the world to be charcoal mellowed twice, giving it the ultimate smoothness. Jack Daniel's has been distilling whiskey since the 1860s in Kentucky Tennessee, so they know what they're doing.
When I check out the aroma it's vibrant on the nose. I pour Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack into a glass like a pro and swirl it around. I detect caramel, spicy, floral but also burnt char flavours (which I love). The World Loves Melbourne loves a smooth whiskey and Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack delivers.
This is a sipper straight up, although you can mix it with Coke or drink it on the rocks. A heritage whiskey that you can keep returning to - smooth on the palate, without being harsh. Add some ice for a touch of sweetness. It lingers. It allures. Premium Tennessee whiskey to be savoured.
The Emirates Melbourne Cup is one of the great sporting events of the world. This year 2013 marks the 153rd running of the Melbourne Cup with horses from around the world competing in this star studded event.
Melbourne is never short of things to do and places to see, but sometimes the rugged, natural beauty of Victoria gets overlooked by tourists and locals alike – all in favour of wonderful cafes, exhibitions, shows, and the bustling atmosphere of the city.
As a foodie I often host get togethers and was excited to receive the Ultimate Ears Boom to enhance my social occasions. I've purchased various portable speakers in the past and been frustrated with the size and quality of sound. Not to mention ease of use. The UE Boom ticks all the boxes with manageable size, superb quality of sound, and its simple and easy to use.
