There's a river in southwestern Texas called Devils River and is said to be the cleanest river in Texas. It's remote and away from human pollution and what's more, it flows underground for some time, which means it gets cleaner through gravel and limestone. Why's that important? Because the Devils River is the blood of a devilishly divine Bourbon that would make every angel break bad.
The constantly awarded Bourbon is made through a painstakingly meticulous process of picking the right grains, using proprietary yeast, distilling in traditional copper pot stills, and aging the Whiskey in #4 charred oak barrels. The golden devil that comes out is bold, rich and sweet. And since it's Texas we're talking about, it comes in a heavy-as-hell bottle. But the Bourbon inside is anything but heavy. It's loaded with flavor, but easy and nice on your palate like only a Texan can be. If you're a real cowboy, you'll sip it straight, while just one "rock" will mellow the demonic Spirit out for your pleasure. If you prefer cocktails, Devils River created its own, called Whiskey Buck, with lime juice and ginger beer.
I have been looking for a new mixer and sipper. This is a great find! Cheap and delicious! Makes a really nice old fashioned. A little peppery but smooth.
Smooth, toffee and caramel flavor spiral. I like the finish w/ a bite of spice, but still smooth finish!
Very good, affordable Bourbon. The Caramel, Fruit, and Honey gives it a refreshing intro followed with a little bit of a peppery bite. I did not try this yet but I bet it is a good choice when mixing cocktails or a variety of food recipes. I plan to keep a bottle in stock at all times.
Ok but not my favorite.
Needs a bit more aging and a better quality mash to be worthwhile. I would not recommend this to anyone. Gave the bottle away.
Very smooth and an excellent use for chili, cocktails and other recipes!
I am rating the Devils River pretty high cause one it's a smooth drinking Bourbon that has a bit of a punch at the end when you drink it neat or on the rocks. Second you really can not beat that price. But most of all when you put some Coke in the glass the Bourbon doesn't get lost.
Hangover for days. Will not buy again!
The Texas River Bourbon was a pleasant surprise! It is a very smooth flavor with caramel and honey tones. From first sip to the last sip, the taste is very soothing, makes you want that second glass so you can repeat the experience!
Decent bourbon for the price! I would purchase again.
Love the little kick you get at the end
Can taste the green in the barrel
Dull and a touch harsh. Slightly sweet at the end.
Love it, purchased from Flavair, got it today 8-5-20 just ordered, super fast. Love the smell, took my first taste and it had a peppery bite, followed by a woody, honey caramel warmth. Strong but smooth. Definitely will knock the dust off the day but not too strong. I will definitely put it on my favorite list and their website shows where I can buy locally.
Was pleasantly surprised. Smoother than I thought for this price point. Easy to drink straight. Would buy again
It isn't the best bourbon, but it's a good value for the price, and it drinks very well after the first taste. The spice flavors make it a nice sipping bourbon, even on hot days.
Preferred straight. Was a good, middling drink. Well worth the price. For the price point, great.
Didn't like it straight, but it makes a good Old Fashioned.
Surprised it was much smoother than I thought it would be. Will absolutely purchase again
My Wife LOVES this Whiskey. Enough said.
My Wife LOVES this Whiskey. And she is a Whiskey Girl! Enough said
Unique taste to anything Kentucky, but very smooth
Pleasantly surprise at the smoothness at this price point. Amazing value and will stock in my bar.
Enjoyed it from start to finish a nice smooth bourbon
Surprising in smooth finish. I bought this to make my Manhattan, but sipped the first dram and enjoyed it solo as well.
Surprisingly good!!! I like it neat but also pairs pretty well with Diet Coke. Price is unbelievable
Very strong with a bite. Good to mix cocktails with or serve neat to those who try to drink all your stash.
Light, sweet, smooth for a warm evening on the porch
I was disappointed in this one. It seemed to be too light in taste and it lacked substance.
This Is a good smooth whiskey and nice for the price!
I liked it. Nice smooth Oakey flavor. Great price. Drank it straight both with and without ice. Good both ways.
All gas and no flavor... if I mix it with Coke it goes down OK, but it is almost pure ethanol by itself. I’m a little disappointed after earlier reviews.
I really liked it, surprisinly easy on the palette for the price
Quite possibly the most intolerable bourbon I have ever had.
Was good. Very spicy with heavy carmel hints..
I really did enjoy it and even more at the price point. Did drink this with my soapstone cubes. Chilled it a touch, but no deluding it. Good daily drinker and will keep a bottle on the bar. The 9 stars vice 10 had more to do with how awesome the Breckinridge Reserve is.
Good mellow bourbon
Just another bourban.
Strong and spicy. Not sure why the reviews haven’t been great on this one. It’s got a lot of flavor
Loved it. A little dry with a hint of spice, plus notes of honey and caramel to give it an exceptional balance.
From Texas, excellent Bourbon. I'm use to the Kentucky Bourbons, this one holds a very close run to these excellent Bourbons.
Very good bourbon for the price, comes out hot but with an ice ball or a little water mellows out and is a nice sipper.
smooth but strong favor...I haven't tried a mix with cola yet but only straight shots.
Water added helped but I think this stuff is still a little young with some rough edges. Tolerable but not great.
Great for the price! Spicy and woody. Very strong taste and smells like moonshine.
I knew as soon as I unboxed this bottle that I was not going to like it due to the color of the bourbon. Not much body to the taste at all.
On the nose, it reminds me of Tequila. Taste is similar too, but without the smoke. Agree with others that it has a Scotch feel to it also. Definitely a different bourbon. Probably not my everyday but might be for someone else.
Not a fan. Not much more than a colored moonshine. Not bad for a shine though
This is immature bourbon. Not worth the effort.
Nice starter bourbon, smooth and light
Nice taste, sharpe bit with some caramel overtones
Surprisingly enjoyable given the lower rating of others here on Flaviar
Smoked candy corn, slight spice, lots of smoke, sweet and corn.
Very flavorful. Strong. I taste the pepper and spice.
Nice flavor but a bit on the weak side. Would be a fantastic starter bourbon.
Harsh. Devils spit would
Be a perfect name.
Very harsh and rough. Was not good. I purchased it because of a money back guarantee. Turns out the guarantee had expired. Will not buy again. Taste was not good, Smell was painful.
I did not like this at all. It has a funny taste at the finish. Tried mixing it with Coke and it even wrecked the Coke. ;). I think this may suit people that like Scotch but I am not a Scotch person.
Not much to celebrate. Big bite, and not much finish. We poured it neat, and sent it back.
Not my favorite. Tried it neat, the flavor profile was a bit too bland for me. Almost had a scotch feel, whatever that means. I would probably like it more with gingerale to something.
Tasted like a straight up rye. Ended up using as a mixer.
Very surprised and pleased, good flavor, smooth sipping whiskey
Absolutly love this. Amazing flavor and great taste. Best one yet
Try it at least once! You may or may not like it. It has a bite you’ll need to be ready for, it’s somewhat softened with the dominant profile of honey and caramel with the spice following on.
I found that this was a very good whiskey very smooth and crisp and no real burn at the end. Very pleasurable to drink. I would highly recommend this.
It didn’t meet my nosing expectations. It tasted of corn
Liked it.. not sure how to review but it was a good pour in my mind
Saw this on LivePD and had never heard of this brand. It's a smooth, rich bourbon that we are adding to our list of 'staple' spirits.
Not what I expected at all. Probably better as a mixer than a supper. “Not my drink”
OMG! This has got to be the WORST bourbon I have ever had.
Color = weak
Taste = All bad
Nosing = It actually fooled me, it nosed MUCH better than it tasted
Finish = Just harsh.
If you are a scotch drinker than maybe you would like this. As an avid bourbon drinker, this will only be used for cooking.
Hard, robust flavor. You should grow at least 7 new chest hairs no matter who you are after a glass
Probably best as a mixer. It can’t decide if it wants oaky notes or peaty notes and is caught someplace in the middle. Very earthy and that flavor lingers through the finish. Not my drink.
it had a unique after taste. I didn't quite like it, it will be a mixer drink
Very young. Zero complexity or linger. The only cool part is the bottle, very heavy and reminds me of an overgrown flask.
