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 flavors 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.

Lee
Lee,
I've read the comments about this whiskey being "to much and to bitter", but I find it directly the opposite. The hoppy flavors and a sweet citrus note are what is predominant and the whiskey was smooth in my opinion. Though I like more of a robust whiskey flavor this was definitely a nice change to sip on.

Michael,
I am a big fan of Hoppy beers, this whiskey was good, but not great. Was very curious to try something new, didn't disappoint, but also was not overly impressed. Had kind of a floral nose, whiskey was smooth, but didn't seem like it was real hoppy. Would like to try some other stuff from them, live free and drink hard.

Shalomah,
I beg to differ from all the reviews thus far! Maybe is the labeling that has somehow affected the mental state when drinking this uniquely fine whiskey. I enjoyed every bit of the hops and the character of the whiskey was lovely especially with a good cigar. One of Michigan's finest - please try and be objective - you will enjoy!

Don,
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.

Josiah,
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.
