Borrowing from Boulevardier this is one of my all-time favorite drinks; The rare cocktail of ours I fix for myself at a night’s end. Our house cognac, Pierre Ferrand 1840 is unlike 99.8% of its peers as it clocks in at 90 proof and can stand with damn near any other spirit and retain its character. Bulleit’s rye is often mistaken for its forebearers. This stuff is Canadian in origin, and thusly much softer than the dominant grain in fireplug ryes like Rittenhouse and Wild Turkey, or “The Kickin’ Chicken” as it’s known in my house. So pairing it with Cognac was an easy mark. It’s a great drink for making friends too, if ya know what I mean.

It only comes out once a year. $10. for 6.5oz pour.
Barrel Roll No. 3 – Pugachev’s Cobra
Get ready for an assault on your senses with PUGACHEV’S COBRA, an intense Russian Imperial Stout. This rich, black beauty with a thick caramel head is bursting with aromas of chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, licorice and dark fruits, while flavors of chocolate-covered plum, sweet malt, bourbon, and roasted coffee explode on your pallet. This is no ordinary beer; three different dark roasted malts and rich maple syrup are combined in a truly unique brewing process to create complexity and depth. Once fermented, it’s then aged for eight months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. This powerful concoction is designed to be enjoyed now with friends or cellared to perfection and savored in the years to come.
PUGACHEV’S COBRA: The brainchild of Victor Pugachev — not for the faint of heart. Pilot suddenly raises the aircraft nose to near vertical before dropping back to attack mode.
