    Manhattan Project: Experiment #38

    Written by

    Location: The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra, India

    Date: April 2018

    Price: 900 Indian Rupee ($13.80 USD)

    Recipe: Listed as Perfect Manhattan with "whisky, bitters and vermouth"

    Garnish: Cherry

    Served: Up

    Comments: As Perfect Manhattan it would be a mix of sweet and dry vermouths and it lacked sweetness I look for.  May appeal to others.  Could have been bigger.

    Stetson Bourbon

    I first tried this as World of Whiskies in Austin 2012 and was impressed so when I saw Master of Malt were offering samples I thought I would order one and write up some notes. The nose has marshmallow, milk chocolate and none of the grain or acetone notes I usually find with bourbons (especially young ‘uns.)   The taste starts smooth but a little bitter then gets sweet with more chocolate, rye, cola and then oak spice carries into the finish along with pepper and some toffee. Suspect high rye content in this one… not that there is anything wrong with that.
