William Grant’s answer to Drambuie is a much less sweet and higher proof Irish Whiskey based liqueur. Monster caramel leaps out of the glass with an undercurrent of cola. Caramel leads to chocolate on the palate before malt and grain whiskey undertones emerge. Midpalate is a little hot but it helps cut through the underlying sweetness, and also features some botanicals like juniper and black pepper. Clearly a mixing spirit and probably best thrown into a cola or ginger ale. 82 Points
