(Notes) This whiskey tastes like beer. There’s no way around it, and that’s what it’s labeled as. It’s what beer would taste like if you had it flat, an additional 30%+ ABV, and maybe threw a shot of bourbon in there. It’s hard to compare to other bourbons and without having the base whiskey I can’t really tell you if it got better after being put in a beer barrel. What I can say is that it’s enjoyable, and I don’t see anything wrong with it at all. In fact, if I got it as a gift I would be happy. If you’re in the market for something novelty, this might be a good choice. Otherwise, there are better choices at almost forty bucks a bottle.
