My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

Red Stag (Spiced with Cinnamon)

Jim Beam are certainly keen to have a range of brands that use every drop of whisky they produce.  In addition to their tradional brands and generally excellent small batch brands, recently they had added the Devil's Cut where they mix and then sell the whisky they can recover from old barrels and now they also have a range of flavored whiskies called Red Stag.  I would have stayed away from them but Ian Buxton included Red Stag in 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die and so I had to try at least one.  Observant readers may notice that in the book Ian reviewed Red Stag Black Cherry, however I did confirm with Ian via Twitter (@101whiskies) that the specific flavor was not the point here... so pedants please do not email or comment, this one counts.  The nose had some vanilla and other familiar bourbon notes.  Nothing untoward here at least.  The taste was sweet, and the texture was a little viscous for my taste.  Gloopy almost.  There is some honey and vanilla in the taste but the cinnamon spice soons kicks in.  This spice lasts into the finish but overall it is not enough to balance out the sweetness of the taste.  That's about it, sweet with cinnamon.
