Coldcock, 35%

Price: $23 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Black bottle, cocked-fist logo. Sourced whiskey, infused with “green tea, hibiscus, eucalyptus, fennel, gingko and more.” Smells schnapps-ish, bright floral and woodsy notes, with a medicinal twang. Quite sweet, but not sticky; the herbs keep it perky. The whiskey is tamped down by the sweet and infusion; the finish gets even more medicinal. I'd like less sweet, and more whiskey. Not sure who the market is for this, but it makes a tasty add to tea.
