A Whiskey that really brings the spice ― and not the kind you'd expect. This one's for the chili-heads!

Boston Harbor Distillery is a waterfront warehouse by the Neponset River, where Rhonda Kallman decided to use her 25 years of experience in making craft Beer to create something new and exciting. She hired Dr. James Swan, the world-famous Whiskey expert, and John Couchot, an award-winning distiller. The magic trio came up with hundreds of barrels of various Whiskeys, a small-batch Rum, and even distilled Beer (to remind Rhonda of the craft Beer movement).

They're no stranges to weird and experimental releases at the Boston Harbor Distillery, but Demon Seed might just take the cake. The hand-made Whiskey is crafted with whole scorpion peppers. It's one of those record-breakers with a heat level of 1.2 million Scoville units ― these are used to measure the heat of chili peppers. Just for comparison: Tabasco clocks in at around 5 thousand. The peppers are macerated in Rye Whiskey and blended with fresh ginger and Vermont maple syrup. Both kinds of spice, some sweetness, and a great Whiskey base. This is one delicious sipper and cocktail base for Whiskey lovers and chili heads alike.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Demonic Brown

Nose / Aroma / Smell
There's an earthiness on the nose as well as maple syrup, spice, and ginger.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The heat is instant but there's a lot of that Whiskey character in there with peppery spice and honey sweetness. Maple syrup, ginger, black pepper, baking spice, and just a touch of citrus all make an entry.

Finishes satisfyingly long with a kick of chili heat.

Ratings & Reviews
This is the strangest taste combination. Like Cayenne flavored Earth without the flavor of Cayenne (Just heat) and without earthy flavors (just dirt) I can't give it a one because it made an impression. Demon seed is a good name for it.
I am reviewing this for what it is a great shooter for a party. This is a FLAVORED whiskey. Fortunately, the flavors are not artificial in taste or ingredient. I went to Boston Harbor Distillery and took the tour. I bought this because it is fun for parties. There is a coffee cream they make that is also outstanding (similar to a baileys). You can do a half of a shot of Demon Seed with a half a shot of the coffee cream liquor. It cuts the spice down and tastes great. Honestly, I prefer sipping on my whiskey, but here and there it is fun to take a shot. Fireball is so artificial and this is definitely MORE FUN and more unique. For a person that does not enjoy spicy foods, I found the spice to be OK. It hits hard and might freak you out, but only lasts about 5-10 seconds depending on your tolerance. after 5 seconds the heat will subside. This has been a hit at our parties! 10 Stars for WHAT IT IS...REMEMBERING THAT THIS IS NOT A "SIPPING" whiskey (unless you are into super sweet spicy shooter drinks/mixers as a go to lol) Cheers!
I like spicy things, but this one just doesn’t work. The flavor is off, and the heat isn’t an enjoyable one. I really wanted to like this, but it’s just not to my liking.
Too harsh. Too spicy. Too hard to drink.
