Smooth, soft...insert Drake joke here.

Hard to throw shade at this drinker though. There is more transparency about its components than its industry counterparts, so you know what you are getting. It’s a drink that doesn't try to be something it’s not, and its just what you would expect from a pop sensation.

Hip Hop is no stranger to the likes of the Spirits industry, and neither is Brent Hocking, former Countrywide mortgage lender, and CEO of Virginia Black American Whiskey. An award-winning spirits producer best known for creating the original DeLeòn Tequila (which was later sold to Diageo and Diddy) and a receiver of the Robb Report Spirit of the Year award for three years in a row, and a back-to-back Grand Champion at the World Beverage Competition in Geneva, Switzerland, the SoCal native has a well-known nose for Liquor. His latest venture? A collabo with Drake and his Virginia Black Whiskey.

With a lower proof than most Bourbon’s at 40% ABV (taking some…restraint not to…make fun of Drake’s emotionally delicate proclivities here), and a name that seems a bit nonsensical, considering it doesn’t seem to have ties to Virginia whatsoever (it is bottled and distilled in Lawrenceburg, Drake is from Canada, we digress…), it is a smooth drink. Drake we do have to ask though, why not a Canadian Whisky?

So if you can finally manage to get all the Drake jokes out of your system, and want to try his Whiskey, here is what you can expect: Virginia Black is a smoother and sweeter Bourbon Whiskey, an intentional effort to attract those who aren’t traditionally Bourbon drinkers. It is bottled in a luxurious, art-deco inspired glass, with elegant gold detail. Cheers.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavour. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
