Appearance / Color
Distinctively yellow from the hops.
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Malt and bitter hops, although not overwhelming.
Flavor / 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.

Member Reviews and Ratings of New Holland Hatter Royale/Hopped Whiskey
I liked this bottle but it was the only bottle from this order I ever got.
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.
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.
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!
very hard,it could be smother
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
