Tasting Notes
Appearance / Colour
Distinctively yellow from the hops.
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Malt and bitter hops, although not overwhelming.
Flavour / Taste / Palate
Bursts of citrus and lime, the tanginess is countered by a light spice that comes through with a creamy vanilla sweetness.
Hops linger and again there is a signature maltedness, the grains show themselves in the finish.
Hops, hops, hop-hop, Whiskey.

The Hatter Royale Hopped Whisky is exceptionally unique and brings something new and interesting to the Whisky market. After twice distilling a wash of 100% fermented barley, centennial hops are added to the malt. There is a swirl of flavours in this dram, coming from the malted barley and the citrus-bitter hops. 
The liquid is delicate and has floral qualities adopted from the hops through that in with some subtle vanilla-like spices and you’ve got yourself a remarkable dram. If you’re looking for something new and exciting to enjoy, then this is definitely the way forward.

I do not like the Hatter Whiskey. It is too "hopped up" for my taste. I normally drink my whiskeys or scotches on the rocks but this whiskey is just too much for that approach. I did find that if I mix it with a dark ginger ale as an after dinner drink it is acceptable. I will not be purchasing this brand of whiskey again, unfortunately. Not to my taste.
Far too bitter with an overwhelmingly Hoppy front. Nose was cringeworthy and I was unable to distinguish any flavors beyond the initial bite. Despite my high hopes, this bottle had a taste reminiscent of a strong, sour gin. I love hoppy beers, but this whiskey was not for me.
Did not enjoy on its own. Interesting mixer drink.
Terrible, tastes like a bad tequila.
Pleasant floral hop character with subtle white whiskey richness
