WHISKEY DREAMS – Agitator MANHATTAN

I used my standard recipe for a Manhattan, mixing bourbon to vermouth in a 2 to 1 ratio.

I tried this Agitator Manhattan with, and without Orange Bitters.

Agitator Manhattan

I was thinking the red wine finish on this Agitator bourbon would pair well with vermouth and make an amazing Manhattan.

Boy, was I wrong. What I was hoping would become a nice pairing of red wine and vermouth, turned out to clash, and badly.

I’m giving this Agitator Manhattan a 49/100, put it in Just Bad territory.

Pros

  • If you like cheap whiskey with strong red wine notes, this might be for you.

Cons:

  • The red wine finish from the Agitator clashes with the vermouth.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – The Living Dead (2020)

The Living Dead is one of those blends that probably sounded really cool when it was pitched. We are going to take a group of thieves, have them attempt a heist in an Undead infested estate, and see if they can survive.

This isn’t your standard Zombie Movie. It is quirky and at times hard to follow exactly what the writers were going for.

Trust me when I say you can bypass this movie, and thank me for taking a bullet for you in the process. I’m giving The Living Dead an 18/100. It is slow, not a great blend of two genres, and the story and characters overall aren’t well done.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Zombie Road (2018)

After watching Zombie Road, my biggest questions is…what was this supposed to be?

As a college project, I applaud it. It’s just really hard to tell what its supposed to be.

A Shotgun Wielding Stunt Woman

The opening scene loops, then a radio announcer gives the movie a touch of direction and a fight scene that ends with a little twist.

According to IMDB, this is the only media the star, Aileen McGuinness has been in. For some strange reason, I couldn’t stop thinking that this little project was all created because the writer/producer, Michael Hennessy was just trying to get a date with the girl. Do I have any reason to think that – no, I was just trying to figure out why this little short was created, and that seemed like as good of a reason as any.

Zombie Road is a little over 20 minutes, but a lot of it is the same footage shown multiple times. I would have tightened it up and made it 10 minutes and I think this would have been a better product. If this was a college project I’d have given it a 75/100, but as a stand alone short I’m giving it 22/100, one point per minute of my life this took to watch.

FYI, if you like the Toy Shotgun, I’m pretty sure they just spray painted one of these Toy Shotguns black.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Zombie Wars (2007)

Zombie Wars starts with a voiceover as a young lady is explaining that they don’t know what started the Zombie Apocalypse, some said it might have been spread by a comet (paying homage to Night of the Comet?) while others said it was god punishing us. Whatever the case, fifty years have passed since the zombies have overrun humanity, and now they are taking prisoners, breeding humans like farm animals.

The humans that survive live in camps and train from birth to fight, to survive in a world where they are seen as food. These survivors free humans bred for food, hoping to educate and turn them into more freedom fighters if they can.

Two brothers free several young woman from Zombie enslavement, complete with B grade special effects and awkward dialogue. Back at the camp the girls are put into a cage for own protection. As Zombie slaves they don’t know English, but the zombies did see fit to keep them clean and clothed, which does seem odd doesn’t it?

That night the Zombies find the camp, overrunning it. One of the brothers is captured along with his newly saved/unsaved female friend. They are taken back to the Zombie camp and left together, presumably to breed and make more food?

The plot doesn’t get a lot better. There is some infighting, politics, but in the end the movie just doesn’t hit on all cylinders.

Zombie Wars scored a 21/100, putting it in Just Bad territory. The main thing that cost Zombie Wars points was the quality of the dialogue, the low quality special effects, and some of the acting was fairly wooden and silly. Combined with a well trodden storyline, there just wasn’t anything here that hasn’t been done better elsewhere.

Unless you are really bored, and just have nothing left to watch, I’d pass on Zombie Wars.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Quarantine L.A. (2013)

You all owe me one. Watching Quarantine L.A. was like having dental work with no Novocain. Not just painful, but torture.

The acting is horrible. The special effects are atrocious, and the plot, what little of it I could understand, was written by a five year old. The dialogue was just as bad.

Quarantine L.A. earned a 14/100. It’s no the worst movie I’ve even watched, but its only 14 points away from that dubious honor.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Driven (2020)

The descriptions of Driven might lead you to believe this is a zombie, or at least a zombie type movie.

It is not. There are demons that take over peoples bodies, but this is mostly a dialogue driven movie that really doesn’t have a lot of action.

Driven was mildly interesting as it got started, but its a slow paced movie, that never really picks up the pace. I’m giving it 13 points for the Poop Spoon story, but this is still a Just Bad movie.

Thank you me, because I watched it so you didn’t have to.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – By Day’s End (2020)

By Day’s End is a story about two woman who’s relationship is just about to implode when the Zombie Apocalypse starts. The movie takes place in the confines of a low rent apartment block.

The acting is hit or miss. The two main female leads are both good actressess, but some of the supporting cast overacts pretty badly.

The movie starts off pretty slow, and then burns slowly until the very end. This isn’t so much a sad romance that uses zombies as the foil for love and loss.

If your looking for zombie action, or action in general, By Day’s End is not the movie for you, which is why it scored a 31/100, putting it in the Just Bad range.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – The Hive (2014)

The Hive is a mix of demonic possession, amnesia movie, and zombie movie all rolled up into a glorious cluster f*ck.

Yes, this is a movie that probably sounded amazing when reading the script, but once it was executed, it was just a mess. There is way too much backstory on the camp counselors leading up to the current events, and the zombie action if brief and far between.

I’m sorry, I like the classic infection model where bites spread the infection versus the demonic possession, vomiting black goo spreads the demonic possession.

The Hive is slow, mildly boring, and not a great example of a zombie movie. You can choose better, which is why The Hive ranked a 12/100. Why a 12? Because I had to drink 12 glasses of bourbon in order to keep watching The Hive.

WHISKEY DREAMS – KAVANAGH IRISH WHISKEY

I have to be honest that I opened a bottle of Kavanagh when I had a guest over and tottally forgot about reviewing it until I want to reference it in my Kavanagh 16 Year Single Malt Review.

Why did the slip up happen. Well, it’s not good news.

I figured we’d try this Kavanagh together and poured us each a dram, but I was the first to actually sip from it. It was so bad I had to take the glass away from my friend and pour her a glass of Tyrconnel Single Malt instead.

The super interesting part is that both these bottles are distilled by Kilbeggan Distilling, but they couldn’t be farther from each other in terms of quality. I’ve had other people tell me they really enjoy Kavanagh, and its affordable for a single malt, so of course I wanted to try it.

If I’m brave enough maybe I’ll but another bottle someday to see if I just got a bad bottle. Or maybe I’ll wait until a buddy has a bottle and I’ll just try a dram of his. Why am I hesitating to buy another bottle of Kavanagh Single Malt Irish Whiskey? Well, it tasted something like Irish Whiskey mixed with turpentine.

It was sharp, chemically, and unpleasant. I’m giving it a 3/100 as it took three small sips before I decided to pour it out. This is one of the few times where I knew if I kept the bottle it would have just sat on a shelf for a few years.

I’m hoping the Kavanagh 16 Year is significantly better, check back tomorrow to find out.

WHISKEY DREAMS – Kavanagh Single Malt

I’m not sure if this is a national brand or one created for Total Wine & More. I’ve never seen Kavanagh anywhere else, but that could just be me.

The whiskey is made by Kilbeggan on contract before getting the Kavanagh brand name on the bottle.

I’m always interested in trying new offerings, so I grabbed this bottle of Kavanagh Single Malt, and opened it when a friend stopped by yesterday.

I poured two glasses, sipped mine, and practically slapped the glass out my friends hand before she could take the first sip. She’s not a regular whiskey drinker, and I didn’t want her first taste of Irish Whiskey to be something so poorly representative of Irish Whiskey overall. I rinsed her glass out and poured her a glass of Tyrconnel Single Malt instead, which she enjoyed.

Kavanagh has a bit of nose burn and chemical smell that is hard to place. My son works in a warehouse, and I asked him to sniff it. He said it smelled like the chemicals they use to clean the concrete warehouse floors.

I can honestly say this is one of the few bottles I poured out. I can’t imagine drinking it in mixed drinks, or any other way. It scored a 3/100 because it took 3 sips to make my final decision. Don’t waste your money, its Just Bad.

Pros

  • My sink enjoyed it.
  • The holiday seasons are coming up. Gift it to someone you really don’t like.

Cons:

  • I poured a $25 dollar down the drain.
  • I gave it 3 points because it took me a full 3 (small) sips to decide this wasn’t drinkable.
