Blended and flavored whiskeys are red hot right now, consumer demand for brown spirits continues to rise with American Whiskey in particular seeing some phenomenal sales growth.
Regular readers know that I am a fan of flavored whiskey, I've always got a bottle of something in my freezer for a chilled shot or flavored specialty in the liquor cabinet to enjoy on the rocks. You can get just about any flavor paired up with whiskey, peach, pecan, spiced, vanilla and more, but the most popular seems to be apple.
Always looking for a new flavored whiskey to sample, I bought a bottle of Piehole Apple Pie Whiskey to enjoy while on vacation.
So how was the Piehole Apple Pie Whiskey you ask?
It's not just apple flavored, but apple pie flavored, yes, really. When buying it I feared it might be overly sweet, but it's not. It's got the fruity apple note you expect, but bonus - Piehole kicks things up a notch with a very nicely balanced element of a baked pie, an image of a fresh out-of-the oven pie crust dusted with that touch of cinnamon dances in your head when throwing back a shot of this stuff. This is a very nice flavored whiskey with a smooth, warm finish. No chaser needed.
Piehole Apple Pie Whiskey gets four out of five Bachelor on the Cheap stars. Costing around $16 a bottle, it's a repeat buy, it's good, but not quite as good as Yukon Jack Jacapple, which remains my favorite apple flavored whiskey.
