While I personally don't care for this, some people may enjoy it. The nose is a very strong beer wort smell, it's so strong and distinct I can't really pick anything else up. It doesn't taste anything like a traditional whiskey. I'm not sure whiskey is even an accurate description. If brandy is distilled wine, this is the beer equivalent. It's not for me.
Before I followed through with it, I read a lot of reviews online and things don't look too favorable for this whiskey. I stubbornly still bought it because I'm obsessed with their Dead Guy Ale which by far no question is my most favorite beer in the world. How can things go possibly that wrong from a brand that has treated me so well, right? Power of suggestion from some reviews say things smell and taste cheesy and aint gonna lie, def got that from a cairns glass straight out of the bottle. I let it sit and open up more, added a few very tiny drops of water and I'm not thinking that it disappoints at all. I like the subtle coffee note it delivers on the middle and back end with a touch of spice packed with caramel, vanilla, and honey. Cant get past that cheese though, wish I could have unread that review maybe I wouldn't have picked it out. But cheese needs to be on that flavor profile fo sho.
While I live in Oregon and like to try items where I live. I have not seen this here and was interested in this whiskey. While I feel that this was not that great of a whiskey. It could attribute to the fact the that Rouge Spirits is a beer company first and foremost. I feel that with a little bit more aging it might be a good whiskey.
I bought this because I am a fan of their beers and I must say I am now a fan of their whisky. The flavor profile what’s right on point. Very smooth and it has moved up to the top of my list at this price range
This is the absolute worst pour of bourbon I have ever had. I gave the bottle a couple of weeks to open up. It's still God awful. It smells like catfish bait and tastes worst. So disappointed. For the price this is terrible. 2019 bottled bottle 150 of 234 barrel 9 of 10. So bad. So disappointed. Great beer by Rogue, terr
The coffee, the vanilla, the caramel, unf. Sweet, incredibly smooth and drinkable, this is a new favorite at my place. I made my friends try it and they were so impressed with the complexity as it evolves from nose to sip to swallow to aftertaste.
