J. Riley 1775 | Otium Smoked French Toast

J. Riley 1775 | Otium Smoked French Toast

Let us take this opportunity to applaud the ‘little guys’ in this potential peak of a malt movement… not to say that the demand for the almighty sauce is ready to recess from mainstream society…  but having the shear audacity, and perhaps a bit of insanity, to start up a distillery today anywhere other than the known whisk(e)y regions is a battle won within itself.  We will never be critical of these entities, as they are just a new hue adding to the vitality of the ever growing hooch color wheel… different is good and simply, LIFE is too short to paint by numbers.

Enter the new #Redlands mash house… born on die-hard patriotism and a ‘drive it home’ mentality, #J.Riley distillery just wants to turn water into good whiskey.  Through simple ingredients and more importantly, quality distilling, they are well on their way to earning respect of the malt masses one pour at a time.  The 1775 #bourbon blend is a powerhouse, aged for a brisk 2 anos in local barrels, this young’n offers much more delicious flavor beyond its years.  And at only 40% ABV, the balance of the oily spice and sweet will fool any palate… It is good!

Who doesn’t like #FrenchToast? IF you don’t, then swipe away now… the rest of us 99.9% will continues to drool over the still visuals from this #SidecarDoughnuts new monthly creation. Thanks to #LosAngeles’ own contemporary #Otium along with their own chef #TimHollingsworth, this unrivaled and completely authentic #donut is the right amount of #foodie savory atop an irresistible treat.  Cinnamon cake, smoked maple glaze, #thrice berry jams, powdered sugar, glazed bacon and micro greens…. YOU ARE WELCOME.

Out of curiostiy, how many of these could you eat?

Until then… #Slainte
