Sean,
Never had one like it. It’s smoky but has a different flavor profile than a scotch or a Japanese whisky. Gotta admit it was a little surprising at first but ended up being enjoyable once the taste center of my brain could process it. I finally understand the “leathery” descriptor with this one!
 
Darren
Darren,
Strong smoke leather taste...not good!

ELIJAH,
Discovered my new favorite whiskey
 
Duane
Duane,
No real flavor except harsh smoke and wood. I can handle smokiness with some other notes but this had none. Thankfully I got it in tasting shipment and didn't spend money.
 
David
David,
Smoky and toasty, surely not for everyone, but a must try for smoky lovers
 
Dwayne
Dwayne,
Smoky and smooth - a bit astringent, so try it with a cigar or some steak.
 
Leigh
Leigh,
Not for me...the leather and smoke flavor is just too overpowering. Aroma is a lot more enjoyable. If you’re after something different, this will deliver...just prepare for a smoke and leather onslaught.
 
Jim
Jim,
This is definitely a young whiskey, aged like a bourbon, without the softness from a good aging. Had strong tones rye and also of apple, probably from the finish aging Also a pretty harsh finish. Wouldn't seek this one out again.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
this was a terrible whiskey. tastes like wood smoke, but not in a good way.
 
Paulo
Paulo,
This is not a good flavor profile. The nose is harsh, overly sweet, damp leather, wood smoke, has that 'craft whiskey' funk. The palate is similar but with much less sweetness and the finish is woody, with some cocoa butter. The flavors are unbalanced and simply just don't go together. Hard pass for me.
 
Chris
Chris,
This tastes like a very nice leather couch and cigars. Wonderfully strong, so be careful if you prefer a smooth bite.
 
Matt
Matt,
Strong plastic flavor. Wet leather. Not good.
 
David
David,
The nose is fairly harsh, with a dominance of rye, leather and alcohol. The leather and grainy/woody taste was a bit aggressive and drowned out everything else.
 
Steven
Steven,
Yuk! Received this in a tasting sampler. It’s the only time we’ve thrown out over 90% of the sample. Like chewing on smoky leather.
 
Bobby
Bobby,
Absolutely magnificent
 
Chad
Chad,
Rich flavors, excellent nose. Such a great combination.
 
Alex
Alex,
Smoke hits hard, almost has a mezcal sense to it, with a more noticeable sweetness. Taste right up front is that same smoke, maybe a touch of vanilla, suede or leather is definitely there like the profile says. This grew on me the more of it I had. I found adding a few drops of water really helped smooth out the bite in the back end. It has a substantially long finish.
 
Teraesa
Teraesa,
Was not a fan of Copper Fox. If you get it in the tasting box, taste it last. Otherwise the leathery, almost plastic flavor is really cloying and overwhelms the tasting. I wound up mixing it into a Manhattan that mellowed it out to a nice caraway flavor.
 
David
David,
Unique flavor with toasted rye and dried fruits. Smooth
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Apparently I’m not a single malt guy. Did not enjoy this.
 
Steve
Steve,
Fascinating! I am literally drinking what we used to feed the cows during winter! Silage. Having said that, it is a truly novel taste. Highly recommended on those nights where you choose to have a third dram and don't want to waste the good stuff (but you're not settling for JW Black or some sh!t).
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an intense, American Single Malt Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a complex life leads to a long & spicy death with hints of marmalade, apple, root beer & rye toast.
 
Zach
Zach,
Overall ok, but too smoky for my tastes.
 
Jay
Jay,
Love this one. The toasted flavor is so smooth and the finish that I love I attribute to the leather description but not sure if that is technically correct. I love this whiskey and will buy it.
 
Brian
Brian,
I'll give it credit for being smooth but to me it was a hot mess. Not for me.
 
Chad
Chad,
This was ok for me. Smoke hits me first, but it does have a smooth finish.
 
Joel
Joel,
Extremely smokey and prominent leather flavor. Honestly tastes like a burnt shoe.
 
rich
rich,
Not a fan. Too smokey with an unpleasant aftertaste. Moving on.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Not for me
 
Richard
Richard,
A bit too much at first, but extremely smooth with an ice cube...leathery-spice the whole way through with a sweet finish. Not bad at all.
 
Carlos
Carlos,
Pepper taste is not big on preferred favorites.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Smoke from the moment you take your first sniff and continues over to the taste. Great if you love a smokey whiskey with some fruitiness.
 
Mignon
Mignon,
Too smokey for my taste
 
James
James,
One of the best that I've tried. Smokey flavor mixes well in my old fashioned.
 
Sunni
Sunni,
Tobacco, leather, olive oil. Just not my favorite flavor combo and it’s hot going down.
 
ross
ross,
Leathery taste good for after your pallet set.something more unique.
 
Candice
Candice,
Love! Good amount of spice, leather?
 
Chris
Chris,
For me the nose smelled strongly of tobacco and leather. The nose was encouraging, but the flavor was a bit of a let down. It seems kind of fruit forward but then there are undertones of basically a workboot, rubber and leather. Wouldn't buy again.
 
John
John,
Well... smelled better than it tasted. Olives were way to strong for me, I like smoke, but this combined with the olives and leather (suede) were overpowering. After reading other reviews I tried adding a little frozen water to cool it and see what it did for the flavors. Bad decision, the tanned leather chemical flavor was way too much. I’m glad others like it, it just shows we all have different tastes and preferences. Oh, but I love the name! Cooper Fox, it was my first choice of samples this round.
 
Dj
Dj,
Toasted/smokey on the initial taste. sweetness with light fruit and major leather throughout. I can appreciate this but don't know if i would buy a bottle.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Smoke overwhelmed the flavor. Not good with cheesecake.
 
Courtney
Courtney,
While it’s always great to try something with a unique flavor. It’s just not a combination of flavors for me.
 
Dan
Dan,
Very Smokey. Almost spicy. I’m not typically a Scotch gal, but if I were, I would love it. I didn’t smell/taste any other notes than smoke & olive.
 
Vijaya
Vijaya,
A very good finish... Smokey in a very nice way... don’t like Smokey smell... then it is not for you...
 
Lamonte
Lamonte,
Love the taste
 
Ronald
Ronald,
Nice mellow nose , Tased honey , rye , dry fruit. Over all I really lick it alot
 
John
John,
Smoke, gasoline, floral, dark chocolate, licorice
 
Cristina
Cristina,
Hint of sweetness with great smoke. Enjoyed it
 
mark
mark,
The apples are there, but the smoke and bite make it difficult to find without some water. It is really, really young and that stand out. With some age to it, this would be an outstanding whisky
 
Michael
Michael,
Way too smoky for me. I had to add ice to get through a single pour. Maybe I can mix it with something.
 
Eric
Eric,
Has a bit of a metallic taste on the back end, even with some water, but otherwise smooth and somewhat flavorful.
 
Raymond
Raymond,
Very bad after taste, do not like
 
Christopher
Christopher,
There’s an interesting smell to it that I can’t quite put my finger on. It tastes better than it smells, but the nose is hard to get past.
 
Mark
Mark,
Burnt toast flavor was over powering....
 
Christian
Christian,
Two of the most dominant flavor profiles are "Toasted" and "Olive" so not so surprisingly, this taste like a Spanish tapenade scotch. The Olive and Leather overwhelm any other effort toward flavor with the exception of a lingering rye sting. Very disappointing.
 
Paul
Paul,
Leather accent overwhelms the other flavors in it
 
John
John,
I don't care for this one. It tastes like leather & fire
 
Geoffrey
Geoffrey,
Not a fan. A very strong leather taste to me. I coul see using it in a mixed drink, but not interested in drinking neat again. It was out of a sample box, so not enough to experiment with, I could see a smoker finding the flavor to their taste.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
Overwhelmingly peaty and bitter. Much like a smokier Laphroaig, but with a wetter herbal flavor. I like Laphroaig, though. This is almost undrinkable.
 
Carl
Carl,
Smokey
 
Mehmet
Mehmet,
Nice tobacco flavor on the nose, with a pleasant leather forward note, with a decent finish.
 
Julien
Julien,
Smooth finish
 
Michael
Michael,
Very medicinal nose, sharp taste. Perfect example of why I've moved on to more aged single malts.
 
Nikki
Nikki,
Of the three in the tasting box this was my least favorite. It has a very weak smoky flavor to it and not much else for tasting notes. Not smooth at all.
 
Scott
Scott,
I really like it! It’s very unique and enjoyable. My first impression was of hay or grass, especially when nosing. The first big flavor is fruitiness which fades to a pleasant dry sweetness. I’m very impressed. If you’re expecting something like a single malt you may be shocked but if you have an open mind you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
 
Sylvia
Sylvia,
It had a very sharp initial nose, but the flavor was overly honeyed. I tried it neat and with ice and didn’t care for it much either way.
 
Homer
Homer,
Love it, the Olive is unique in flavor and very tasty.
 
Amy
Amy,
Leather is gross. Yuck!
 
Tripp
Tripp,
Oak flavor
 
Matt
Matt,
Medicinal with burnt caramel notes, stringent finish on the tongue. Floral aroma
 
Ron
Ron,
Good aroma. Flavors kept changing during the tasting; some were good, some were not as good. I'm very divided on this one. Interesting fruit flavors, possibly apple. Noticeable amount of smoke but not too much for a scotch. At times there are other flavors that I didn't like.
 
WILLIAM
WILLIAM,
Wow... very loooong finish. Orange peel, light peat, hint of vanilla, & honey stick around on the palate for the longest finish I’ve experienced with any whiskey. I plan to purchase a bottle & pair this with a cigar. The peat smoke is subtle enough (compared to some heavily peated scotch I keep on the shelf) that it begs for a cigar to round it’s toasted smokiness out properly. I can definitely see how this might be a like it or don’t like it for people. For me, it’s intriguing... I keep smacking the roof of my mouth after each sip, surprised at how long the flavors stick around, mellow, and how different flavors take turns coming forward on the finish. The initial flavors are bold enough to stand up to cigar pairing, they’ll “cleanse” between draws, and the long finish will compliment the right cigar. Did I say “cigar” too much? Cigar.
 
Chris
Chris,
This one was just ok in my tasting box. To me this was a whiskey pretending to be a scotch. I know, all scotch is whiskey but “not all whiskeys are scotch”. I didn’t get any of the fruit notes as I enjoyed this and tasted a very Smokey burnt taste to it. That must have been the leather and toasted notes over powering everything else. I’ve had better whiskeys and scotches.
 
Karen
Karen,
Very strong from the start. Can’t it past the leather taste, not a fan.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
Peaty.
 
Robert
Robert,
A little alcohol forward. A touch of water brings out the flavor, but I still wasn’t excited.
 
Michael
Michael,
Loved the aroma, but proved to be a little sharp for me
 
Stacey
Stacey,
Really delightful! I would never have guessed a 1 yr old whiskey could taste so smooth! It’s “comfy chair next to the fireplace” kind of sipping whiskey.
 
Victor
Victor,
Interesting nose where I could smell the smoked fruitwood. Not a fan of the olive flavor and a little harsh.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Ok, a little hard to drink.
 
Chris
Chris,
Not my favorite very smoky & peppery aroma and taste. Long finish and the after taste is not pleasant at all.
 
Doug
Doug,
A friend and I thought this was by far the best combination of flavor and spice in the Single Malt taste box.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Just can’t get into this one
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Aromatic pipe tobacco... 👍🏻
 
Daniel
Daniel,
It goes down alright, not my favorite, but the aftertaste is revolting.
 
Alex
Alex,
Unfortunately, too fruity and sweet for me. It’s cool to hear about the story of distillery and all the unique things they’re doing, but I can’t say I enjoyed it. It tastes like fruity syrup...hopefully their other whiskies are better...
 
Bruce
Bruce,
Sharp on the nose. Smoke and Pete mix with some subtle rye notes. There is some sweetness but that is muddled by the other flavors.
 
Chris
Chris,
Strong peaty flavor. Okay sipper.
 
Rex
Rex,
Flavor of whiskey mixed with a campfire. Liked it at first but not sure I can finish the bottle. This is definitely a slow supper.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
8.75 ~ beautiful flavor
 
Mr.
Mr.,
Decent drink. Sweet with hints of olive. Th finish burns a little much for my taste
 
chris
chris,
i definitely taste the olive, i almost thought this was a peaty scotch
 
Oliver
Oliver,
Nice smooth start, personally really don’t like the finish
 
John
John,
Decent body, with enjoyable sweet notes, but a little more peaty than I like.
