Dr. McGillicuddy’s Apple Whiskey

I am a huge whiskey fan. It’s what I usually choose to drink if I am just relaxing and want something to sip on. When I saw a bottle of this apple whiskey, I couldn’t help myself. I knew I had to try it. For around $20 a bottle and an urge for something sweet, this was a good bottle to choose.

Lets startapple whiskey with the smell. There are few artificial smells I like better than green apple. I don’t eat candy anymore, but the smell brought some nostalgic memories of my childhood and those caramel apple suckers.

It tasted surprisingly smooth for something that smelled so sweet. While it had some candied tones to it, it wasn’t overbearingly sugary. Again, green apple was the main focus. It finished quickly with a little cinnamon on the tail end. Beyond that, there wasn’t a lot of depth to this whiskey.

If you are looking for a straight forward whiskey with some candy apple tones, this is the bottle you want to buy. It was great for the price and goes well with many mixers or just straight in a lowball glass with a little ice. While a little too sugary for my tastes, it sated my want for something sweet and was a good introduction to other, more complicated drinks. 5/10.
