In today’s video, I’m going to show you two new whiskey cocktails to try! The first is the Sentimental Gentleman, a smooth sipper that was created by Boston bartender, Misty Kalkofen. If you like a cocktail like the Rusty Nail or the Godfather, you’re going to love the Sentimental Gentleman. The second drink is a variation on this that we came up with at the bar where I used to work. We called it the Staggering Gentleman because it is staggeringly strong and uses an uncut and unfiltered bourbon called Stagg Jr.

I’m happy to say Unicorn Auctions sponsored this video and gifted me the bourbon I needed to recreate this cocktail. Stagg Jr. has become a difficult bottle to acquire - and when you find it, it can be rather expensive. I’m grateful to my friends at Unicorn Auctions who could help me make this drink possible.

Unicorn Auctions holds monthly online auctions for rare bottles of whiskey (among other spirits). It’s easy to get involved if you’re interested in buying or selling special bottles.
