— What a great blend of carribean cool rum and righteous rye to keep your nose awake!! The ginger bitters is something I've not come across before. After first sip, I went online and bought a second bottle. Mixologist really knocked it out of the park on this one!

— Old Fashioned in a bottle! Just add some soda if it’s too strong for you!

— delicious,only ordered 2 bottles, should have ordered a case.

James
James,
The flavor spiral is right on. Very smooth. Instant Old Fashioned.
 
Paul
Paul,
This was an unfortunate mistake. I got carried away by the advertisement and neglected to put two and two together and realize that this is punch. Sweet, cloying, punch. If you like punch this was very well done (hence the 5 stars), but punch none the less. I will be more careful in the future when choosing a tipple from Flaviar.
 
Jarod
Jarod,
This is a great blend. I'm not a huge fan of rye whiskey but I love rum and ginger and this combination is delicious. Honestly, I intend to create this blend on my own since this seems to be a limited edition.

Laidlaw
Laidlaw,
My first opportunity to thy this bottle was last evening with neighbors who get together once a week and the taste and aroma were well received. I may have directed some of them to your website. Personally, this spirit was nicely pleasing to the nose, the rum and the rye came through and did not over power. I always try neat first to decide if it's better shared with a mixer. But this bottle can do either, Looking forward to many more chances to explore.
 
Mark
Mark,
It smells like Christmas. Something along the lines of chai. Taste is creamy (vanilla?) with a nice tingle on the finish.
 
David
David,
An absolute surprise of flavor combinations. Perfect to take to a bbq and introduce your beer drinking freinds to a historic drink. A must have in the library for the " I dont know what I want" freinds that everyone has.
 
Barbara
Barbara,
Well, if you are after a cordial/liqueur you might have found your fit. For me it is way too sweet and onedimensional. Nice but no more. Might be good in a mixer.
 
Todd
Todd,
Old Fashioned in a bottle! Just add some soda if it’s too strong for you!
 
robert

delicious,only ordered 2 bottles, should have ordered a case.
 
robert
robert,
Am really glad i ordered 2 bottles. The first one just went away. Amazing flavor. Will order again for sure.
 
Mike
Mike,
Amazing! I was very skeptical of a cocktail in a bottle, but it was hard to resist all my favorite flavors pre-mixed. Not a disappointing decision to get this bottle!
 
John
John,
Haven’t received it yet
 
Charles
Charles,
LOVED IT! Just the right of everything. Great neat, on the rocks or it's own old fashioned. Purchased two more bottles and turned my cousin on to it.
 
Julie
Julie,
This is the best sipping whiskey! Great flavor without the burn.
 
John
John,
Too good. Pour over ice, let it cool and enjoy. Addictive.
 
Robert
Robert,
Excellent sipping evening nightcap that goes down very easy....maybe too easy. ;-)
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Nice sipping drink that reminds me of the Holidays. The spices and flavor conjures up spiced holiday cookies. Great for the fall and winter months.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Imagine a Rye Manhattan, but with ginger and spiced rum instead sweet vermouth. Delightfully bold, slightly sweet, smooth finish. A little heavier, but still full proof and perfect on the rocks. If you like rum-barrel finished whiskey, you'll enjoy the bold rum taste married to the rye.
 
james
james,
The best stuff I’ve had in a very long time sooooo smooth a lot of company’s tell u that a brand is smooth and I find generally that it burns going down
 
Davide
Davide,
A good dram after all, but honestly it’s way too sweet for my tastes. The rum dominates.
 
Kanwar
Kanwar,
Very unique mix. Not too sweet. Like it chilled. No additives required.
 
Brian
Brian,
unique mix. I really like that its like a poured cocktail.. kind of a play on the old fashioned.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Nearly like a premixed old fashion with hint of ginger
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Great for a Dark and Stormy.... The only reason it is not a 10 is that it evaporates faster than I desire. ;).
 
Christine
Christine,
I loved it! A cocktail in a bottle. Very nice spice.
 
NATHAN
NATHAN,
So oddly enough this went great in your eggnog if you like that sort of thing.
 
Jaskarn
Jaskarn,
An old fashioned is my go to drink always! Sometimes a hassle making one if you’re not on the mood. But with this a touch of sparkling water and an orange peel and you have the real deal! Ordered 2 more bottles after my first sip!
 
Matt
Matt,
Far too sweet as a straight sipping spirit, almost liqueur consistency & flavours, almost unnatural. Will try in a cocktail after reading some of the other reviews
 
Tammi
Tammi,
Much too sweet for me! Added bitters and lots of ice, but couldn’t mask the sweetness. Even my sons couldn’t drink it. Won’t purchase again.
 
John
John,
Wayyyyyy too sweet. Put a lot of ice in and you can get it down to something drinkable, but one could put together a homemade ginger-y cocktail that'd be more balanced.
 
Jorge
Jorge,
Interesting and different. A little on the sweet side. Good sip as an occasional dram. Honey, zest and ginger dominate de palate. The rye takes over in the end.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
IT was delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In my opinion, it is sweet not super sweet. Definitely stands on its own as more of a cocktail than a mere spirit
 
Ian
Ian,
mellow combination without the bite but all th flavours. Greta with apple cider or ginger beer
 
Luke
Luke,
Excellent. With soda it makes a dryer, more varied dark and stormy type drink
 
Roy
Roy,
We nudged this one in on a 6 strong rum tasting extravaganza. It stood out due to the sweetness, adding ice improved this for me. By the end they were all tasting amazing..
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Really enjoying this. This is a pretty decent ready-made whiskey cocktail. The best way to cut the sweetness is to serve it seriously chilled (over ice in a frozen glass)... still retains the depth and the spiciness of the ginger.
 
Nico
Nico,
Very drinkable. It's quite sweet, but the ginger is coming through nicely. You can easily mix this with something, but I would drink it straight.
 
Duncan
Duncan,
Tastes like what I though rum would taste like as a kid. Sweet, easy to drink, just a touch of ginger and rye. Sip a little on the rocks, top it with soda, or mix it with iced tea.
 
Niclas
Niclas,
I was impressed, a bit sweet yes, but still a rich flavour which kept evolving.
 
Will
Will,
Very drinkable. The first taste is quite sweet but the finish is drier with the ginger coming through. I would recommend this if you like an old fashioneds
 
Julie
Julie,
After being cooped up in the house and unable to visit our favorite “watering hole”;(no thanks to COVID-19), I was craving a Manhattan. This little gem was sitting unopened on my counter...BINGO! Not spot on as a Manhattan would taste, but pretty darn close! Have purchased 4 bottles since the COVID crisis!
 
Melanie
Melanie,
Really interesting mix of flavors. Straight, the rum is most forward with the ginger next and then the rye. I like it best over ice with a splash of soda and a lemon wedge.
 
Ron
Ron,
Manhattan in a bottle- outstanding! Just ordered two more.
 
Mark
Mark,
This didn't live up to the hype, too sweet and without the kick I'd hoped for.
 
Andi
Andi,
Old Fashioned - no way Jose. It is an interesting drink and I was drinking it neat. I did expect something a little less stringent - The ginger / bitters / spice is probably a little too forward, especially for something "new" Although by the end of the bottle I did quite like it
 
Charles
Charles,
GREAT TASTE! ONCE YOU START SIPPING YOU CANNOT STOP. I think it will make good old fashion or Manhattan. No burn
 
James
James,
light ginger you can feel all the way down! Tasty
 
Ben
Ben,
Fine
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Bitters and ginger are bold on the nose with citrus throughout. As if I walked into a speakeasy and insulted another patron and they threw their Old Fashioned in my face. It's a tad bold for sipping neat, but I took the website's advice and added some club soda on my second glass. I'm a *huge* fan.
 
Shridhar
Shridhar,
Interesting spirit, the ginger is quite prominent and the spirit holds its own. An old fashioned-ish kind of twist that leaves you wanting for more
 
DJ
DJ,
Very sweet...cut with seltzer.
 
Chris
Chris,
The combination makes for a great taste. Sweet, with some citrus undertones make this really good. Very smooth.
 
Stefan
Stefan,
Like the combination of rum and rye. The ginger is the dominante taste on the palate and nose. The honey, spice and the bitter comes later and makes it a good chocie of spirit.
 
Chris
Chris,
It is very sweet, it’s a bit like a pre mixed old fashioned. Best with ice to sweet neat. Might try it with ginger beer. I think the bottle will take some time to finish
 
Jim
Jim,
I and my friends like it
 
Susanna
Susanna,
I liked this Bottle but the taste of ginger was too strong.
 
Alanna
Alanna,
It's a little sweet, but I rather enjoyed the cocktail in a bottle concept! Would buy again.
 
Raymond
Raymond,
I am primarily a whisky drinker. This was too sweet. I did not like it. A waste of my money.
 
Sam
Sam,
A lovely little drop. Nice punch of rye at the start with the sweetness of the rum as a finishing flavour,all with a hint of warming ginger throughout.
 
David
David,
Great
 
Rebecca
Rebecca,
I like rums while my wife loves bourbons. This is a drink we both love just poured over some ice or whiskey stones. It’s a bit sweet but the ginger adds a beautiful bite. A bottle we will always keep stocked.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Very interesting bottle. Fun to share as something different, but a bit too sweet to go again. Felt it in the morning always... Hercules' revenge...
 
Stewart
Stewart,
Too sweet for me. Tasted like Pepsi.
 
Don
Don,
We ordered this to try something new. They made a mistake and shipped two bottles. This was so smooth that my wife who doesn't drink much said to keep both bottles. She loves the hint of spice.
 
James
James,
The spicy flavoring and smooth texture meld together to make a very pleasant experience. Well worth ordering, worth even more upon tasting.
 
Cheyne
Cheyne,
I mostly drink whiskey neat, on ice, or in an old fashioned but picked up this bottle due to some good Flaviar marketing. On the nose it smelled just like a normal spirit to my novice nose, but man it packs a ton of flavor that I was not expecting with that addition of ginger and bitters. It's really good on its own over ice. I went through the entire bottle much faster than any other bottle I currently have.
 
Robert
Robert,
Absolutely LOVE this with an ice cube as an after dinner sipper! A little sweet but not overpowering, and just a hint of a bite. Love the Ginger, but I love ginger, so that's bias coming from me ;-)
 
BRETT
BRETT,
Had a small gathering to blind taste an assortment of rums. After running through our collection of rums I remembered this bottle that I had yet to try. Easily became everyone's favorite, just sipping with an ice cube.
 
Rasmus
Rasmus,
Giving a review based on it being neither a rum nor a whiskey. Only based on itself as a beverage. This a somewhat sweet liquor with some bite to it. The initial taste takes me to rum with some hints of whiskey. The ginger is prominent in the middle and the lingering notes. I would enjoy it as is with an ice cube to chill just a little bit
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
I absolutely love this blend of rye and rum. It’s different in a good way. You get the kick of the rye at the start and the finish of the rum at the finish. Can’t wait to use this as a mixer as well.
 
David
David,
Great pre mix that needs nothing but an ice cube!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Way too sweet and gingery. Im sure it would make a good dark and stormy or a Moscow mule but otherwise not really drinkable.
 
Jerome
Jerome,
I love it! A splendid blend of whiskey and rum. A good combination of oaky and sweet.
 
KENNETH
KENNETH,
The taste was a welcome surprise and quite different from being just another craft bourbon, rye or scotch. Love the liqueur like consistency. It's great neat, over ice, in black coffee and I'm looking forward to the next bottle to try some cocktail recipes.
 
John
John,
Very smooth and not too sweet
 
Linda
Linda,
This was very smooth and flavorful-
 
David
David,
Interesting blend of flavors but too sweet for me
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Likely very good to use in a mule with Ginger beer but straight it was not enjoyable.
 
Devan
Devan,
This is an excellent pre mixed cocktail. It's reminds me a lot of an old fashioned.
 
Ervin
Ervin,
Love it on the rocks!
 
Günter
Günter,
Brilliantly balanced drink. Tastes just as advertised: Rum & Rye, best of both!
 
Stewart
Stewart,
Way too sweet for me. Like drinking soda pop.
 
Roger
Roger,
Like a dark and stormy.
 
Sergio
Sergio,
It has a mixture of flavors from the time it hits your lips to the finish. It has a sweet smell. It has a fruity taste at the start with a sweet spice at the end. Reminds me of Big Red. Very smooth. I would rate it higher but it's not something you could drink multiple glasses of it.
 
john
john,
Love the various flavors that come thru. The different sweetness from rye and rum.
 
Rick
Rick,
Love this on ice! Smooth!
 
Lou
Lou,
Love this...great to sip or to mix...I could sip on this forever!
Sergio
Sergio,
What do you recommend for a mix?
Jason
Jason,
This really surprised me. Very smooth. I am going to try and order two more bottles.
 
James
James,
This was a different but very good bottle, so glad that I ordered 2. Loved the taste, very smooth, would highly recommend it.
 
Troy
Troy,
Bought a second bottle of this and just as happy as when I first had it. Will buy again and again. Favorite way to drink it is with some bottled in bond whiskey mixed with ice.
 
Michael
Michael,
Great blend. Reminds me of a Vieux Carrie with a nice sweet flavor but not too sweet. I will get this one again and again.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
I don't usually go for sweet but there is just enough a tang that makes it worthwhile.
 
Tammy
Tammy,
Both my husband and I love this. Pleasantly sweet. Tastes like a ginger cocktail.
 
guest
guest,
Where are the mini sample bottles for this? I’d much rather purchase a sample before purchasing a full sized bottle.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
A little too blandly sweet for me.
 
Trevor
Trevor,
Tad on the sweet side but really good if you're looking for that. Tried it neat and over a single ice cube and liked the latter more. Not sure that I'd want it as a permanent addition to my liquor cabinet but fun while I have it!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very heavy/sharp ginger flavor on the front that overpowers this drink neat. However, mixing this with sprite makes this the best hard ginger ale I’ve ever tasted!
 
Cress
Cress,
Very very good
 
Andrew
Andrew,
A little sweet for me, but pretty good over ice and a lime twist, or with club soda and lime. Glad I got a couple bottles to experiment and share
 
Janice
Janice,
Fantastic flavors in every sip. I love it!
 
Lindsey
Lindsey,
Complex and delicious. Perfect on it own or add a smidge more of your favorite rum and rye when you aren’t in the mood for as much sweet. The ginger and bitter balance everything for a great ‘sippin by the fire’ drink.
 
Steve
Steve,
This was a great "cocktail in a bottle." While a bit too sweet for my taste it was very enjoyable and welcome by those I served it to.
 
Keith
Keith,
Very flavorful, you can definitely taste the bit of ginger in it
 
Tracey
Tracey,
Too sweet.
 
Tegan
Tegan,
Tasty
 
Michael
Michael,
This is a good cocktail in a bottle. Almost like an old fashion with a twist.
 
Ronald
Ronald,
A good after dinner drink , it is sweet and good fro sipping . I’d buy it again
 
Sam
Sam,
sad that it seems this is no longer in stock and I can't buy another bottle
 
Kelli
Kelli,
Delicious! Perfect for sipping with a fantastic blend of flavors. I want more!
 
Cameron
Cameron,
Easy to drink. Soft. Subtle. Not overpowering. A great blend of spirits. I would buy it again.
 
Marc
Marc,
A truly enjoyable after dinner libation, out of the bottle and onto the ice. Why mix a drink when you can pour one? Hopefully, this will be available again when my one bottle empties.
 
Mark
Mark,
Don't like it at all. Tastes like really sweet rum mixed with liquorish.
 
WAYLAND
WAYLAND,
An amazing Taste! Had not imagined the flavor as the rum reduces the usual bite I get from rye and the rye brightens the usual sweet rum flavors ,, amazing mix
 
Timothy
Timothy,
This is a must try, not harsh, no burning all the way down and surprisingly sweet!!
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Taste great and smooth all the way through.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
A fantastic drink for dessert or a hot afternoon if you put it on ice. The ginger and sweetness of the rum bring a candy like taste that is balanced by the punch of the whiskey.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Really interesting blend, run keeps the rye from being too harsh, and the rye keeps the rum from being to sweet. Definitely something unique I will keep in my stable
 
Ted
Ted,
this was quite tasty, whether i had it on rocks or neat. thoroughly enjoyed the depth of flavors.
 
Essie
Essie,

Essie
Essie,
Okay
 
Alex
Alex,
I found it to be too sweet out of the bottle, but I made a tasty cocktail last night with it: 2oz Mulligan, 3/4 oz Cynar, juice from half a lemon. Shake with ice, serve neat.
 
Andres
Andres,
Real nice flavor
 
Ramsey
Ramsey,
Amazing blend of rye whiskey and rum. Perfect on the rocks with nothing else.
 
Zach
Zach,
A little too sweet but the flavor is awesome. The heat from the rye and ginger come together in a really smooth way.
 
Ricardo
Ricardo,
I was surprised at the combination for this spirit. Which is why I ordered it. It's definitely a unique taste. Not sure I like or dislike it, just different. I tried it with a friend and he said it would go well as a mixer. Don't think I would buy it again but it was worth a try at least.
 
Dave
Dave,
A tiny bit sweet but the aromas of ginger and molasses make it very, very tasty. Almost a dessert liquor.
 
George
George,
I bought a bottle of the Hercules Mulligan on a whim. I'm not really sure what I expected out of it - perhaps just a bit of novelty. What I got out of it was quite surprising. I found it to be well balanced and smooth without being overly sweet or overly gingered and bittered. I liked that bottle so much that I ordered three more - one for me and two to give as gifts over the Christmas holidays. I really wish I had gotten at least one more bottle since I just ran out over this last weekend. My attempts at recreating it have been something less than spectacular. I will be ordering more when this becomes available again.
 
Lee
Lee,
Interesting combination of flavors. A little sweet for early in the evening, but a great option for later on, especially for those who don’t usually like liqueurs.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Easy drinking for sure. I will get it again.
 
Philip
Philip,
Really excellent
 
Andrew
Andrew,
This is amazing! A great drink the warm the soul!
 
Sean
Sean,
Incredible full flavor. Starts with a perfect sweetness with a hint of cherry.
 
Keara
Keara,
This is a really good cocktail in a bottle, but at full proof. Everyone I've had try it really like it, too. Sweet and spicy and smooth
 
Israel
Israel,
Amazing! It's like a spiced Old Fashioned beautifully balanced. I highly recommend for someone who would like to have a unique nightcap or just a sipping experience with friends.
 
John
John,
Gave it all stars, but the post only showed one. Definitely and all star!
 
John
John,
Delicious and very unique.
 
Gerard
Gerard,
It is delicious. I keep mine in the freezer bc I like it very cold. When is the 1.75 coming out?
 
Heather
Heather,
I do not like rye at all, but my husband does, as well as rum, and I thought this would be an interesting gift. It turns out, I love rye when mixed with rum and we both think this is great!
 
Glenn
Glenn,
Very unique, drinkable. I love the creation story and history behind it but not sure I would buy it again. It's a nice novelty to talk about and share, particularly for history buffs!
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
This product is of the finest quality and is absolutely delicious. At first, I was confused by the mix of rum and whiskey. But, once I tasted it, I knew it was a perfect marriage. The additional flavors really create a phenomenal cocktail. I decided to keep it in the refrigerator so that I did not have to dilute it with ice. It’s a strong drink but really excellent and with a mix of flavors that linger on your pallet – wow.
 
Laura
Laura,
I’m not much for sweet cocktails (more of a gin girl, or a neat scotch) but I really enjoyed the flavor profile in this pre-mixed bottle. Yes, like others have mentioned, it’s a bit sweet....but with some whiskey stones to get it really cold you taste more of the spice & less of the syrupy-ness (i just made up a new word!) This is an easy sipping beverage for a nice winter cocktail hour offering, or nightcap kinda evening...will definitely be keeping a bottle in the bar for future use.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Excellent drink. Nice to have a “cocktail” premixed but some well and right.
 
Eric
Eric,
Gotta tell you, out of the more than 70 different spirits I’ve tried (I keep lists), Hercules Mulligan is one of my top five favorites. (Yes, I like sweet!)
 
Steve
Steve,
So, I really didn't dislike it, but, yeah, it's different. At first sip I was surprised by how overly sweet it is... like when you accidentally pour too much simple syrup. So don't let it linger on your palette...after the swallow you almost immediately get the vanilla and spice and you'll forgive any offenses. Typically i wouldn't bother with ice, but this was better on the rocks than straight.
 
Troy
Troy,
Mixed drink in a bottle- add a shot of Ginger beer to the glass and this is a perfect cocktail! I make this with jack, bitters and ginger beer- (call it a Stoy). this is just as good if not better
 
Marty
Marty,
Did not enjoy this. Too sweet and it’s off somehow. Did not want to finish the glass. I’ll mix it with some soda and try again
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
I'm new to spirits and still learning to develop my palate. "On the rocks" is a little beyond my level, but 1:2 ratio with some good quality ginger beer and Hercules Mulligan has become my favorite!
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Really very different- a great digestif - sort of thing you taste and you aren’t sure if you like it but then you take another sip and say maybe I do like it- next think you know the glass is empty
 
Justin
Justin,
Perfect way to end an evening, especially with a splash of ginger ale and twist of lime.
 
Mark
Mark,
Did not like this at all. I enjoy run, and rye, but it tastes like Sambuca is mixed in and the effect was not good at all. I had two drinks, and will probably trash the rest.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Fantastic! Not just an interesting bottle and good conversation piece. Found myself craving another glass the next night.
 
Matt
Matt,
It's like a mixed drink in a bottle! Similar to a rye old fashioned with a cinnamony spice. Love it
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Beautiful bottle with a tasty drink inside.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
A nice spiced winter cocktail
 
Edward
Edward,
It just had that amazing taste I’ve personally just hit my favorite....
 
Matt
Matt,
Not bad, especially for the price. Mellows nicely with ice. It's like a slightly spicier old fashioned. Solid drink.
 
Bennie
Bennie,
I'm an Old Fashioned drinker when out and about, and this is the easiest way to make one. Step 1: Grab glass Step 2: Put ice in said glass. Step 3: Pour
 
Chase
Chase,
Barely drinkable. Highly disappointing
 
MIGUEL
MIGUEL,
One of my fav bottles so far. I love a good old fashion and when you add a little simple syrup, cherry and orange peel....BOOM! It’s already on the so add symbols syrup to taste.
 
Michael
Michael,
Too sweet as is, but cut with a splash of bourbon, it's pretty good.
 
Tom
Tom,
Sweet and fruity notes with a smooth finish.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is amber with orange hues. Nose is complicated, in a good way. Bitters, sweetness of rum, subtle rye spice, and more that is difficult to tease out. First sip is similarly complicated, as the sweetness, though subtle, shows, with nice amount of bitters, and a small amount of rye spice. Orange notes pop in the midpalate. Finish lingers for a brief while with the subtle rye spice and oranges mingling. Overall, definitely not a Whiskey or a Rum, more of a prepared drink in a bottle, but when in the mood, definitely delightful. Throw over an ice cube, and just enjoy.
 
MARK
MARK,
Delicious over a large cube of ice or in coffee.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Very sweet to my taste. Didn't know what to expect. Probably best served over ice and lime might good. Very similar taste to a Manhattan or Rob Roy.
 
Nolan
Nolan,
Very nice to just pour over ice and drink as is. Can throw a little ginger ale or cola in it. Solid purchase!
 
Robert
Robert,
Too sweet for my taste. A squeeze of lime helps.
 
Todd
Todd,
I had no idea what to expect. This was something I had never tried, or anything remotely like it. I guess I was expecting bold and "boozy" tasting? Instead, it was smooth with a hint of sweetness that followed and really made me want to ONLY drink this straight up. Mixing it with anything would be darn near a crime.
 
Brian
Brian,
Smooth sweet drink comprised of citrus and honey tones, balanced by the tang of bitters. The rum is there with its complimentary tropical hints, but not overpowering.
 
Michael
Michael,
This is a great idea. I only sip it neat. I would never think of mixing it with something. It would only ruin it. It is delicious. Orange notes dominate (IMO) but do not overtake it. They price is very affordable.
 
George
George,
Very smooth. Extremely well balanced. Mix with ginger ale for a dangerously delicious cocktail!
 
Brian
Brian,
This is very nice. It is smooth and a bit sweet. I like it on the rocks or made with soda and a garnish like an Old Fashioned. It is refreshing.
 
Sal
Sal,
The Best!
 
Mark
Mark,
Very enjoyable. Sweet and smooth great for when you first walk in the door after a hard day at work, the beverage is already for you
 
Sean
Sean,
Fantastic sipping drink! I accidentally left a bottle with friends and immediately got more with my Flaviar shipment. It's smooth, spicy, and complex, a wonderful on-hand cocktail. Will definitely keep some on my bar from now on.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Overall a unique taste but a bit on the sweet side for me. Drinks like an apperitfe, so enjoyable as an after dinner drink.
 
Adam
Adam,
Incredibly sweet and smooth, needs a fair amount of ice but all in all a solid pre-made cocktail to have on hand!
 
John
John,
A little sweet, a little spicy - with a dash of heat on the finish. It’s great!!
 
Ernest
Ernest,
Great complexity of flavor. It is spicy like Christmas, and sweet enough without being overly so. The bitters really set of apart as a completely ready to drink cocktail. At this price, a great bottle to always have around.
 
Javin
Javin,
It's a little sweet for my taste, but it does have a well rounded flavor. It made me think of Fire Ball, but way better and more complex while being smooth as well.
 
R.
R.,
There is alot going on with this. It left me a bit on the fence after my initial tasting. It is a difficult flavor combination to describe. The spiciness reminded me a bit of the spiciness of Jaegermeister, but nowhere near as hard. I would recommend anyone to at least try. I'm liking it more each time I have a glass.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
A little sweet, very smooth, and entirely unexpected. Very interesting drink!

I'm on the fence. I didn't expect a sweet whiskey, so it threw me off. Couple of my friends who are winemakers liked it. I added a smoked ice cube (yes, it can be done), which helped mitigate the sweetness just a tad. Not sure this is something I'd buy again, but time will tell.

Tasty, but a little sweet for me. My wife loves it, though!
 
Gary
Gary,
Very smooth. Great flavor.

Jim,
There is a LOT going on in this. Sip slowly.
 
David
David,
I was good, not great. the bitters came through strongly on the first sip, and I don't really like bitters so that's just me. Once the ice smoothed it up it was better, it took the bitters edge off. Shared it with some friends, people who like bitters liked it. I would probably not buy it again.
 
Jason
Jason,
Soooooo good. Easy to make. Like ready made Old Fasion. Very smooth too. I will buy again.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Very tasty, but would not call it either rum or rye. Rather, I consider it a ginger liquor — something I don’t hold against it.
 
Lee
Lee,
Very interesting blend to have around. I think I’m saving the rest til summer.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Tastes like an old fashioned strait from Wisconsin. With out the brandy.
 
Rebecca
Rebecca,
I bought this as a christmas gift for my husband (who LOVES old fashioneds) and he was very, very happy with it! He added an orange peel over ice & said it was excellent!

Great drink right out of the bottle neat. Added a touch of Cointreau for hint of orange and one of my new favorite drinks.
 
Phoebe

Loved it. Sweet, smooth finish. Drink neat. It's like an old fashioned I'm a jar.
 
Zola
Zola,
Rum & Rye, never had that combo but it was great. Very smooth, would recommend for people that don’t want the burn of Rye and like the sweet of rum.
 
Linda
Linda,
A bit sweet, but very smooth. Definitely would purchase again. Well worth the price.
 
Michael

Way too much flavoring. Not tasting the old fashioned.
 
Jessica
Jessica,
Loved the combo of the spice in the rum with the flavor of the rye!
 
Paul
Paul,
As others have noted, this is reminiscent of an old fashioned. On the rocks, I feel the honey overpowers everything. Smooth and sippable, though.
 
Fred
Fred,
Very smooth drinking and definitely reminiscent of an Old Fashion.
 
John
John,
It's an old fashioned in a bottle, and delicious! Try it on the rocks...If you want something a little sweeter, and says Holidays/Winter in a glass - Get a bottle! We also tried it mixed up with Pepsi...cola flavor compliments well.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
Tastes almost like a sweeter old fashioned in a a bottle, very good on the rocks.
 
Joel
Joel,
Very interesting flavor. Nice warming feeling. A bit too much bitters taste to me but I'm not a big bitters fan to start with.
 
Kleena
Kleena,
Wow. Interesting hit of ginger, spices, honey, and oak. Love the interplay of rum and whiskey. Ends with a long lasting citrus.
 
Jay
Jay,
Love the spice of the Caribbean rum with the oak barrel taste of the whiskey I will be keeping this on my bar at all times
 
William
William,
This is my favorite drink in a bottle. It’s an old fashioned with a bit of a Caribbean twist. Perfectly blended, and unexpected.
 
Richard
Richard,
Wow an unexpected sensation. I will be ordering more
 
David
David,
Very smooth. Expected more pepper but not much spice at all. Would buy again
 
George
George,
Oh my. Very nice. Just open and pour a bit over an ice cube and enjoy. Very well thought out and blended.
 
Rico
Rico,
This is. A great tasting concoction you dreamed up, I’m glad I bought 2 bottles because this first one is going fast.....
 
Joe
Joe,
Much sweeter than I expected. Might make an interesting old fashioned....not my favorite near. Will have to mess with this one.
 
Ted
Ted,
Nice spice at the front, then mellows out beautifully.
 
Josh
Josh,
Unexpectedly nice.
 
Blake

Very good. A little on the sweet side. Gingery and spicy.
 
Marcus
Marcus,
Delicious, just what I’ve been looking for, a nice mix of dark rum and rye with a hint of ginger and butters. It’s perfect for the winter holiday season
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Exceptional! Like an old fashioned in a bottle but even better.
 
Sean
Sean,
A little too sweet for my taste. I prefer to mix a little of it with straight bourbon for a cocktail.
 
Sean
Sean,
This is awesome! Sweet with a spicy finish!
 
Ian
Ian,
So good. On the sweet side. But it’s mighty tasty.
 
Paul
Paul,
This was a very good blended product. It is a little sweeter than some if the other Rye whiskies or Rum that I have. Overall, I would buy it again. Nice sipping drink on a cold night sitting by the fireplace!
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Excellent, unique drink. I don't want to call it a cocktail based on its ABV being 43%, but it tastes similar to an old fashioned. Extremely easy to drink on ice, and also great with a mixer, such as ginger ale. Simply put, tastes great and is a very cool and different item to have at a home bar when entertaining.
 
Adam
Adam,
Not what I was expecting at all, it was very rum forward and sweet. I was blinded by the high rating and made a poor decision by choosing this bottle. I was expecting it to taste like a whiskey with a slight sweet finish. I would definitely not recommend this.
 
Erik
Erik,
Wow... one of the best drinks I have had, in a really long time... smooth as silk... no heavy after taste or a knock to the nose... well done...
 
Troy
Troy,
I'm a big fan of bitter drinks and whiskey drinks so this is right up my alley. The first sip was bracing but immediately returned for more. Really well blended and enjoyable; won't replace whiskey but nice for a out of bottle drink.
 
ROBERT
ROBERT,
Fabulous taste. Great and unique product.
