Sons of Liberty Pumpkin Spice Whiskey
SOL Spirits // Rhode Island, USA
A whopping 30,000 pounds of Rhode-Island-grown pumpkins are roasted and juiced in the creation of this annual flavored release from Sons of Liberty. The pumpkin is combined with a range of spices and flavorings, along with the whiskey itself, and is ultimately bottled at 80 proof. (Review from 2015 release, batch #4.)
Flavored WhiskeyWhiskey flavored with natural or artificial flavors and labeled with the (pre)dominant flavor(s). Can be made either with or without the addition of sugar. Bottled at 30% ABV or higher.
"The nose bursts open with pumpkin-puree and a pumpkin-bread loaded with baking spices—cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg. Palate opens softer and drier, and is very cinnamon forward, reminiscent of citrus-tinged mulled wine. A short, smooth finish offers more of the same, for a very consistent, pumpkin and baking spice profile from start to end. If you're looking for a flavored whiskey that screams of fall, this is for you."
