Tasting Notes

"This aptly-named whiskey is indeed a firecracker of a dram! It's almost aggressively spicy (close to a cinnamon red hot candy kinda way, though not as sweet). Ripe red apples, and hints of caramel and lemon peel cool the embers a bit, with a weighty cereal mid palate. Ice is its friend, and because of its spiciness, this is a good base (also with consideration of its modest the price point) for stirred drinks like Manhattans or Boulevardiers. (Reviewed barrel #36.11)"
