Chicken Cock Root Beer Flavored Whiskey, 43%

Price: $20 Issue: Spring 2014 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Root beer (wintergreen, sugar, a bit of cinnamon) and oak on the nose; whiskey/oak predominates. There's actually a lot of whiskey flavor here, too, though it's not great whiskey, the finish gets sweet and clingy, and the mix seems forced. Still…root beer-flavored whiskey? In an aluminum bottle? Why not just buy some whiskey and put it in your root beer? Then when you come to your senses, you can drink the whiskey like a civilized human.
