Whiskey Review: Bird Dog Praline

By Mike Thayer

Bird Dog Praline Flavored Whiskey
I now have a new flavored whiskey favorite

Blended and flavored whiskeys continue to be red hot in popularity, consumer demand for brown spirits remains on the 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.  My favorite in all this tasting fun so far, has been Ole Smoky Peanut Butter flavored whiskey.  It's BETTER than Skrewball and it costs a lot less too!

Today's review is a taste of praline! I picked up a bottle of Bird Dog Praline flavored whiskey, making it a Super Bowl Sunday Sampler...

Here's the description from the Bird Dog Whiskey Website:  Folklore and fact intermingle to create the history of the praline candy, a southern favorite for generations. This classic confectionery treat is buttery, nutty, and sweet all at once, and we’ve managed to bottle it up with our Pecan Praline Bird Dog Whiskey. The unmistakable flavor of toasted pecans covered in a silky smooth candy coating complemented by the essence of vanilla and oak aging barrels of real Kentucky bourbon. Try it in our Praline Pointer, and you’ll feel like you’re walking to the streets of New Orleans - brass band not included.

I think I may have found a new flavored whiskey favorite.  Sampling this in a straight shot and on the rocks, if I had to pick between Ole Smoky Peanut Butter and the Bird Dog Praline, I'm going Praline.  This is a silky smooth whiskey that gives you pecan and brown sugar notes in the nose, delivers nicely on those flavors in the sip, followed by a delightful, warm, rich finish that is not overly sweet.  Bird Dog has very successfully put praline in a whiskey bottle.  This is a whiskey to truly savor, to have on hand for special occasions, it's that good.

Costing me $18.95 for an 80 proof 750ml bottle, I'm giving Bird Dog Praline 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  Reasonably priced, it's definitely a repeat buy and deserves a spot in your liquor cabinet.

5 stars
