Right off the bat, this isn’t whiskey – it’s a cocktail including whiskey and “flavored liqueur, which probably has a base of vodka, rum, or some distilled neutral spirit, along with flavorings. So if you are looking for a good scotch or whiskey to casually to sip, this ain’t it. This is a simple, very sweet, apple tart drink to have at a party with friends. And the flavor is decent – if this is the kind of experience that you’re looking for, then job well done! Like most flavored liquors, I do wish that they cut the sweetness by half – most drinks Americans enjoy are over-sweetened. But the flavor is pleasant, and since it’s lower proof than most whiskey, one can perhaps drink a bit more of it, if the occasion allows.
