Scotch vs. Beer.

Ladies, gents and connoisseurs of all things good... there’s a new Whiskey collective in town that’s set to surprise and please our Whiskey senses and that it does. Whiskey Union proclaim themselves as a creative collective of Whiskey makers, visionaries and hedonists in pursuit of unconventional blends and extraordinary flavor sensations. While the established brands craft the Bentleys and the Jaguars of Whiskey—which is all fine and dandy—the fellas at Whiskey Union choose to break with convention, experiment with flavor and tread on the sporty side of things; they manufacture well-tuned Ferraris, so to speak, to keep your taste buds on the edge and your belly humming.
 
Boxing Hares is the second of the three unconventional expressions they’ve released so far, the other two being Smoky Goat and Huxley. Now… who would you root for if Scotch and Beer faced each other in a ring? Let us tell you that there are no losers here only the one winning combination. Pete Brewin, a master distiller at Whiskey Union, decided to mix Scotch with the hops from craft beers (Hallertau, hops commonly used in the making of German pilsners; and Cascade, a variety that adds a distinctive bitter note to the American craft beers).
 
The result is a distinctive Scotch sporting a creamy sweet character that is masterfully complemented by the fruity freshness of the added hops. Boxing Hares is a toast to springtime and life itself, an easy drinking Scotch with a refreshing taste that can be mixed with a lemonade, tonic or ginger beer into a long drink or serve short & sweet with lime as a shot.

Uncle Flaviar approves.

Michael
Michael,
Much different, but better than I expected. This is an easy, pleasing sipping whisky.
 
James
James,
Really enjoyable, unique enough to surprise and tasty enough to have another!
 
JOHN
JOHN,
Reminds me of sweet tea and a brandy aftertaste...very smooth
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Very sweet spirit. Maybe a good one over ice or in a tea as the compliment for a nice toddy.
 
Dan
Dan,
Not for me. Maybe targeting women. Has a sweetness to it that I don’t think belongs in in a whisky. The label is very nice.
 
Roy
Roy,
Too sweet for me. More of a cocktail whisky.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Tasty enough, but a little sweet to drink much of.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
Too fruity tasting to be a regular drink but might be nice to have a bottle around for an occasional tipple.
 
Randy
Randy,
This on is going on the wishlist, even the wife likes it (the fist time ever)
 
Matt
Matt,
A great desert whiskey. The hops add amazing flavor to the whiskey
 
Christine
Christine,
Smells just like a great beer, then tastes an awful lot like a dessert sherry. The idea of a dessert whiskey never quite occurred to me - but this would be it. Definitely unique - but probably not something I need to try again.
 
Peyton
Peyton,
Hoppy Citrus Nose. Super Sweet, Ginger Body (Not expected based on the nose). Fruity Finish. Nice Dessert spirit

Freaking Amazing
 
Jason
Jason,
Very sweet. Not a flavor I would typically want. Good otherwise.

When your in the mood for something a little different, this is it. Very enjoyably sweet. I decided to taste this one night shortly before going to bed, it was the perfect sip. Sweet, but not like a Cordial. Also, very smooth, the only I think is it could be a little higher %ABV.
 
Robert
Robert,
It is not what I was expecting in a whiskey. This would definitely be my choice for a dessert whiskey.
 
Chris
Chris,
I now have a new drinkable dessert. A pleasing assembly of flavors.
 
Mark
Mark,
They called it unconventional and it is definitely that.
 
Matt
Matt,
Sweet surprise but not that bad. Hop finish is very subtle
 
Leif-Johan
Leif-Johan,
After the first sip of this whiskey I felt scammed and thought this isn't whiskey at all! After the second sip I became confused and finally delighted. Really unusual and absolutely delicious.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Creative. Really didn't get a lot of hops. Very sweet. With eyes closed it could be cognac.
 
Scott
Scott,
Lightly, sweet, which is unusual for a whiskey. I definitely get vanilla, caramel, and a hint of hops.
 
Mike
Mike,
VERY SWEET! Good if you're a sweet tea drinker (or soda) meanwhile I'm neither. Still drinking my sampler but this is my finale for the night and I'm struggling through it. It'll be good if you plan for the sweetness but I personally started on Jameson and it caught me off guard.
 
Adrian
Adrian,
Not as peedy as I thought very smooth
 
Stephen

A bit sweet tasting , but lovely anyway.
 
Michael
Michael,
A surprise to the palate, sweet and smooth like a 25-year-old single malt. I don't know how they did it, but I'd buy a bottle or two.
 
Jon
Jon,
This is exactly what they aimed for. Executed well. I loved it

Smoother and sweeter than I would have thought. Not great but not terrible.
