- Shawn W.Verified BuyerI recommend this productI'm More Into: SippingMy Spirit of Choice (if forced to choose!) Scotch, Gin, Whiskey, BrandyI Bought This For MyselfRated 5 out of 5 starsExcellent dark whisky
I was first drawn to the almost purple color of this whisky and knew I had to get it. It is good neat, but even better on the rocks thanks to the slightly higher-than-normal ABV. Chilled, one can taste the difference in original grain (blue corn), as well as a wonderful smokiness. This isn't a Laphraoig, it isn't earthy, but it does have a nice smoke to it that isn't overpowering or all that one tastes. I'm looking forward to buying it again when I run out!Best ForRated 1.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
