In addition to its selection of wine, cocktails and small plates, this candlelit Mt. Kisco jewel box has a secret weapon: an impressive list of rare whiskeys. Look for a nearly complete run of hard-to-find Pappy Van Winkles, plus a plethora of other high-toned spirits that are mostly boutique or locally distilled. - Zagat Guide
Anthony runs a first-class joint out in Mt. Kisco, NY. It's about half an hour by car, maybe 50 minutes if you're slumming it on public transport (which is a better option if you can't find a sucker for designated driver). Heading out there, we saw a quaint town, and then some ominous looking mini-mall-type establishments, and then finally a perfect house with a wide front porch and dim-lighting. Fingers crossed, we entered. Firstly, the people are awesome. You'll feel welcomed right away. And second (ok who are we kidding?!?) was the bar itself. A whiskey collection out of our wildest dreams. The objects of tonight's affection: a line-up of outrageous ryes. Rittenhouse 21-Year, 23-Year, and 25-Year. Try and find these. Go ahead. Then cry yourself to sleep. Spend the rest of your life living vicariously through our review. Or, alternately, go to Pour and have Anthony pour you some. - SmokeyBeast Review
Pour offers the Holy Grail of hooch—this intimate bar slings Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve bourbon in distillations of 15, 20, and 23 years old. Also look for A.H. Hirsch Reserve’s super-rare, 16-year-old, pot-distilled, sour-mash bourbon, along with Hirsch’s 25- and 28-year-old reserve. You won’t find this all-star whiskey lineup anywhere other than at the bar in heaven. - Westchester Magazine
We were pretty sure we were trespassing on private property when we walked up to Pour. The Victorian-style house in Mount Kisco seemed more like a private residence than a bustling bar. Passing a group of patrons drinking on the porch, we entered through what may or may not have been a back entrance. One of the most interesting things about Pour is the floor plan. Rather than the usual open-concept bar space, the original layout of the house was utilized. A series of cozy, candlelit rooms fosters quiet conversation over some truly fantastic drinks. If you’re feeling a bit more social, enter the main bar area, which is also on the smaller side, and order a Negroni and some soft, warm pretzels. The bartender knows his stuff; he stirred the Negroni (as a Negroni always should be), delicately mixing the gin, vermouth, and bitters—making it sweetly aromatic, with the perfectly biting booziness of the gin. Even better, he was able to keep up a good conversation and was more than willing to answer all our burning questions about wine and liquor.- Westchester Magazine
