I can’t believe this one wasn’t already listed here, especially since I have received it in two separate swaps from different people.
I didn’t expect to like it, mostly because I gave some of the bags to a friend who didn’t seem wild about it. I have to admit it is better than I thought it would be, but I am not a whisky drinker so perhaps I am easier to please. The tea base is light, barely astringent, and not really anything to write home about. The whisky aroma is sweet and it almost smells as if a piece of candy was melted in the cup of hot tea. Is real whisky sweet like that? The whisky aspect seems to be all in the aroma rather than the taste, because I don’t feel like I am tasting much other than tea. I am drinking this without additions but I can see that some might really enjoy it with sugar and/or milk. I wouldn’t go out and buy this, but if it was the only thing available in a sandwich shop, I would drink it.
