Went to the distillery when I was visiting Nashville and had an old fashioned with Oatrage - it was by far the tastiest brunch cocktail I’ve ever had. Highly recommend for its coffee and oat profile, definitely have it on hand for a great brunch old fashioned!
Very interesting, especially with the recognizable touch of smoke from Schlenkerla Rauchbier in old Bamberg where I have drunk many a glass. This does not resemble any other malt I have ever drunk, and the difference is most refreshing.
I had read that this was too smoky... almost like drinking barbecue. I was a bit worried by that review but I love smoky so I went with it. Glad I did this is delicious. Lots of sweet caramel notes, it’s definitely smoky. But I’d be happy with it even smokier. Perhaps there are some inconsistencies in batches going on... but batch 28 is delicious.
This is the worst bottle in my extensive collection. It tastes like someone took cheap, young rye whiskey and tossed some Nesquick instant chocolate drink powder in it. The only thing I can taste when I drink this is Nesquick. Just say no.
I got about an ounce of this whiskey down before I realized I was drinking expensive($40 750ml) Teachers Irish Creme($33 1.75L).
Best described as campfire in a glass, Teachers was my daily for over a year and much cheaper than Triple Smoke.
This was so bad that I almost think that I got a bad batch, because I don’t believe that this could actually be sold to the public. I’m a huuuuge fan of Peaty smoky whiskies but this tasted like dirt. Undrinkable.
Upon my first tasting I wasn’t a fan, but upon repeated visits to my bottle. This whiskey has earned a specious place for me, I asks you to pay attention to it. It’s robust and Smokey but in a way that’s atypical for me to scotch. And what you’re left with aft the bite subsides is what makes it for me.
This is a decent bottle but I found was seriously lacking in the smoke flavor. That was 99% of the reason I purchased this bottle so I was pretty let down. Take the smoke out of the equation and it is solid.
I’m a sucker for smoke and this one doesn’t disappoint. The smoke is definitely present but not in your face. Interestingly, although this is peaked, it’s not scotchy. I pick up more of the beech and cherry wood tones. There’s a lovely subdued sweet smokiness that runs from the first whiffs all the way thru the finish. Very smooth and easy to drink way too much!
Great stuff. I ran into distillery in Nashville and brought some home, really liked it and so glad to see it here. Nice smoked flavor but not overpowering, smooth with a nice Carmel / Tobacco end. I do recommend it and there other selections.
Typically, I'm a bourbon guy, but decided to give this a go. I've been known to enjoy Bruichladdich or something similar from time to time. This bottle definitely reminded me of that peaty, islay type taste. I'm far from a an expert, but I quite enjoyed it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. I can understand the name being misleading to those looking for heavy smoke flavor, but it was just the right amount for (someone who's never tried an Islay scotch) me. Makes me want to try some of Corsair's other offerings.
Before ordering, ask your self "Do I love Absinthe, or am I merely a lost tourist". If you are the latter, you may wish to give this one a pass. No, the whole hallucination bit is way overblown, don't expect it. And you probably won't make out with your own sister in an east European nightclub, either, unless you're already into that, then, well, you need therapy, not a drink.
Beware, this red fairy has a bite that can make a sane boy slap his momma. Of course, the licorice flavor absinthe addicts (like yours truly, gentle reader) live for, but then magic happens, magic ! Hibsiscus surrounds the senses and slowly the delicate flavor, although surprising in its intensity, of orange blossoms happens. Amazing shift in primary, secondary and tertiary notes. For a taster, this is an E ticket ride in old Disney land, well worth the long line to get in. Distinguishing notes is going to take a few sips, maybe a second glass, whatever floats your Pinta, Chris.
Okay, drinking it right. Such a lovely Orange Amber louche, pearl orange you may call it. The aroma drifts around you (I should shut off that ceiling fan but even that cannot defeat the florals) I would wear this as perfume, were it not a sin to waste such a wonderful drink on such base uses.
If you love absinthe, and feel a little "Anthony Bourdain" in your search for something out of The ordinary, here it is. Worth every single penny and then some.
Love this! I think oats truly make a great whiskey and Corsair has done it top notch! It starts with a pleasant nose and is smooth to start with a little bite at the end letting you know its still whiskey!
