    Coney Island Carlos Bourbon

    Never heard of them until Thanksgiving. And there right in my backyard.

    Anyone try it?

    Re: Coney Island Carlos Bourbon

    Only in New York could a guy go from running a tattoo shop to being a purveyor of wines and spirits including rum, vodka, gin, tequlia, and our interest, Bourbon. Mr. Carlo Fodera (Coney Island Carlo) must be a busy guy but I doubt he has a still in the back of the shop.

    As for the whisky, yes, I've tried it a number of times, MGP bulk whisky gets around under other labels and you can buy some from Carlo for only $17.99 a pop.

    I think everyone is better off with Carlos sourcing generic mystery source whiskey.

    Almost certainly mystery sourced whiskey. Other than that I know nothing about it. But based on the website I would probably stay far away!

    And his tattoo artist friends help design the labels. Anybody remember American Biker Bourbon?

    Not sure about their wine and spirits, but I'd let Miss Kristy mix a cocktail for me any time.

    "Like all other Coney Island Carlo Spirits our bourbon has the distinction of being smooth over the pallet with a strong hearty flavor."

    Are they suggesting that rather than drinking, it is best enjoyed by pouring it over wood on the loading dock?

    Maybe that just means it's easy for the fork lift to move around.
