Time Out says

Williamsburg’s barflies are no strangers to brown spirits, but at this whiskey saloon, there’s a rare reverence for straight sipping—no pickle juice or PBR chaser necessary. Owner Alla Lapushchik (a founder of Death & Company) focuses on small-batch whiskeys, matching the bar's flag-waving decor (eagle-emblazoned wallpaper, whiskey-decanter light fixtures) with bottles sourced exclusively from domestic distilleries. Lively menu annotations make it easy to navigate more than 70 bourbons, ryes and whiskeys, including the vanilla-tinged Noah’s Mill from Kentucky and the off-kilter Whipper Snapper, which get its chocolate-cherry tang from time spent in pinot noir barrels. Any of the pours can also be incorporated into straightforward whiskey cocktails (old-fashioned, Manhattans, smashes), and chef Sam Glinn matches the hooch with superlative bar snacks, such as a deeply flavorful chicken liver baguette with crispy bacon.
