"This is a very Texas whiskey, both in terms of its Shiner Bock base and its big character. Notes of malt and fresh wood lead on the palate, along with touches of smoke, vanilla, and orange peel. It's brash but not too hot for it's 100-proof; it's sippable neat but would likely be distinctive in spirit-forward cocktails."
