Down the Rabbit Hole for some Pedro Ximénez finish Bourbon.
It's a story as old as the universe: boy likes Scotch, boy meets girl, girls likes Bourbon, boy likes Bourbon, boy and girl start making booze. We’ve all been there, right? Meet Kaveh Zamanian and his sweetheart Heather. It’s a true story and the booze they’re making is Louisville-based Rabbit Hole. It’s all about passion, beauty, and elegance, and a simple mission: bring an extra renaissance to the Bourbon renaissance.
Now, after they created a mind-blowing Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Rabbit Hole decided for something even better: take that lovely Bourbon, age it in American oak barrels with an alligator char (that's the No.4 intensity where a barrel is exposed to ridiculous levels of heat for 55 seconds until its interior has the rough texture of alligator skin). Then (yes, there's more), they move the already outstanding Spirit and put it in ex-PX Sherry casks for a lovely sweet and dark finish. It’s decadent, it’s snazzy, and it’s downright unbelievable. It’s time to dive into the rabbit hole, baby.
*Rabbit Hole has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.
Sweet, smooth but just a bit of heat. A bit of cherry and baking spices. This is delicious and dessert in a glass. One of my current favorites.
Sweet and spicy. Perfect for a Manhattan or Old Fashion.
Smooth with a very sweet finish.
Worth every penny. One of the best bourbons I've ever tasted!
Smooth at first but has a bite going down.
Fruity, light and smooth.
Good sipping bourbon - this beauty is smooth and sultry. I prefer it over a slow melting block of ice.
Great nose. This does not disappoint at this price point.
Did not like. If you want real cherry’s in your bourbon like I do go to woodinville bourbon.
This was amazingly tasty! Had following an Abelour 16 yr old single malt scotch, and the Dareringer held its own very nicely.
I think I am a sucker for anything from a Sherry barrel. This is one of my favorite sippers.
I was glad I went down this Rabbit Hole. This bottle was very smooth and tasty. Definitely worth picking up.
Absolutely my favorite thus far. A bit expensive to drink very often on my budget, but worth having in your bar. Very smooth, not too sweet, or hard hitting. beautiful finish.
Wow... absolutely my new favorite... excellent after taste hangs in there... already ordering more... too bad it doesn't come in a bigger bottle...
Really enjoyed this. Great sipping bourbon with a very unique flavor. Will absolutely purchase again.
Rare. Save it for those who will appreciate it. Good with a single block of ice
Very good bourbon. You can definitely taste sherry in the finish. This will be a regular on the shelf for me.
Loved this Bourbon. Great taste.
Exceeding expectations, so flavorful.
Packed a punch to my taste buds.
This is by far one of the best Bourbons that I have tasted. All the flavors are well balanced.
Holy Moly, this is a special bourbon. Pricey but worth it!
I thought about how to describe this bourbon and the best adjective that I can come up with is "juicy". It is very rich and full with dark fruit flavors like plums and cherries. You definitely get the port finish but it isn't overwhelming. It is a GREAT bottle.
There is so much flavor to this bourbon. It is delicious and hard to keep a bottle around for long. Enjoy!
Love this finished bourbon. Sweet, fruity, savory, and very smooth.
Very good. Will buy again
Have wanted to try Rabbit Hole since I first heard of it a couple of years ago. This was my first bottle, and won't be my last! Excellent!!!
Lots of caramel! A little too fruity for me.
First taste last night. Buying three more bottles today!
If you like bourbon finished in sherry or port casks, you will love this one. Smooth as silk and easy to drink,,,,,too easy!
Delicious. Robust fruit, tea on the nose and the palate. Dark Fruity finish all the way through. Was concerned about the price but this one is unique and pleasant.
Excellent, smooth well worth the wait
Love it a dessert whiskey will always try to keep in stock
Delicious, heavy sherry sweet flavors with some earthy raisins oat and barley on the the back end.
Absolutely dead on selection for me. I may have to rethink my bourbon use going forward
Rabbit Hole is one of my favorites. Dareringer is very smooth and easy on the palate.
After opening up, pretty easy drinking.
My wife surprised me with a bottle of Rabbit Hole Dareringer. First pour was neat. It is a fabulous bourbon. Smooth and full bodied with great taste and a pleasing finish.
Absolutely amazing and smooth bourbon. Not so much burn. Love the sherry notes. This bottle has jumped to the top of my list.
This is one for the regular rotation. Love it.
After reading up on Rabbit Hole, I took a chance and ordered myself this bottle - boy what a payoff I received! I poured it neat and let sit for about half an hour, then took a long whiff and my first sip. What a revelation. Smooth, rich and decadent. No burn or slap of alcohol in your face, no strong aftertaste... Just a complex and beautiful mouth full of cherry, wood and sherry. This is the best sipping bourbon I've ever tried - it will be a standard for me from now on.
Do yourself a favor and order yourself a bottle - it's well worth the price!
Smooth and rich flavor
Great easy drinking bourbon. I prefer it neat
I was expecting better for the price. Still tasty and smooth. Edit: I would only drink this bourbon neat.
a little too sweet for me
Great flavor. Unique twist on bourbon.
Very good. Still learning to identify flavors, although I can smell most of what others describe. This will be a perpetual member of my bar.
Love the rich body and full-flavored taste. The sherry is magnificent. Oily texture. Fantastic dram.
Good. You can certainly taste the sherry cask. I wasn’t disappointed
Very tasty! Especially with a little ice to open it up. Smooth and fruity. Will definitely buy another bottle.
It matched my preferred flavor profile very well.
Loved it! Great tasting, smooth.
Smooth and best in Old Fashioned cocktail. A staple in my home bar!
This is an odd tasting drink for me, not exactly what I was expecting. It is pretty good, but not the best I have tasted. There is no shocking slap to the face of alcohol and no aftertaste...
Very good pour. Surprised at just how good and deep it was. Will be ordering another bottle.
Very surprised. Nice smooth texture and the sherry finishes pleasant and just "sweet" enough. A fan!
Great tasting... Smooth....
Best trip down the rabbit hole
Vanilla, creamy cherry and caramel
The smell is a good indicator of what your palate will experience and savor. Of the 20 bottles from Flaviar, this is easily 1 or 2.
The smell of Rabbits Hole is a good awakening for what your palate will savor. I have order 20 bottles from Flaviar and this is either 1 or 2. Sliente !
Smooth enough for a novice whiskey fan, complex enough for a connoisseur. Fruitiness up front, lingering finish.
This drinks like a cognac. Not overly sweet, smooth mouthfeel, lingering finish. The sherry notes are strong, almost overpowering the bourbon, but in a good way.
Rabbit Hole is really perfecting the art of finished spirits.
Tell you what. Rabbit Hole may not be one of the old boys on the block, but they sure know how to make their bourbon taste like it.
Quite possibly the best group Bourbon we have cracked for our gatherings. By the end of the evening, the bottle was empty and we were all raving about how good it was. This is a definite repeat performance!
Agree with letting it sit for 20 min or so. I am a big fan of Sherry finished bourbons and this was on par with some of my favorite bottles. Did not disappoint. Ordered a second one almost immediately.
Amazing Sherry Finished Bourbon! Delicious and smooth.
Amazing Sherry Finished Bourbon! Delicious and smooth.
heres the thing, as with all bourbons this needs to rest for about 30 mins before first taste... if you open and pour all you get is sherry, and just bland whiskey, give it time to sit and it opens up to a whole new different experience. honestly glad i tried both ways to see... pretty unique flavor, but good nonetheless.
Very smooth taste! The sherry flavor hits you right off the bat, but the finish is almost like a rye. A must try!
Very smooth and has a sweetness right up front, followed by oak. Sting is later on and mellow
