Colonel E. H. Taylor Single Barrel

When Autumn rolls around, and the temps cool down, I find myself thinking about bourbon when I want an adult beverage. Actually, I’m prone to have a sip of bourbon any time of year, but it’s especially enjoyable during the cooler seasons. About a year or so ago, a buddy suggested I try Colonel Taylor…

Chattanooga Whiskey Co.

1816 Cask American Whiskey Chattanooga Whiskey Company 1439 Market Street Chattanooga, TN 37402 http://www.chattanoogawhiskey.com Like millions of other Americans, I have recently learned to appreciate a good whiskey. After years of craft beers and (mostly) red wines, I have started drinking more whiskey. While I generally prefer bourbons such as Knob Creek, Four Roses, and…

Gluten-Free Beer

If you’re gluten intolerant – or worse, celiac – and you like beer, not being able to have a cold brew is one of the worst requirements of your condition. As regular readers of this blog are aware, my wife Michelle is gluten intolerant. She also likes a good beer now and then, so going GF has…

Apothic Dark

Apothic Dark $10.99/bottle Michelle and I love to drink wine. We are predominantly red wine drinkers, but we have been known to enjoy a glass of white wine now and then, depending on the situation.  One of our favorite red blends is a wine called Apothic Red.  Apothic Red is a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot,…

Sangria

If you’ve been reading/following this blog for a while, you’ll recognize the post and recipe below. The original post is from 2014, and I reposted it last year around this same time. I’m updating the post, however, because I have tweaked the recipe. This was not because I didn’t like the original recipe. It was…

Welcome to Haute Flavor

This site is all about high-flavored food and drink. We eat out a great deal, so it will mostly involve totally unprofessional reviews of the places we eat in and around Nashville, Tenn. From time to time, we may also post a recipe for entertaining at home. To be honest, we’re not sure where this site…
