Whiskey Review: Revel Stoke Peanut Butter Flavored Whiskey
By Mike Thayer
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.
Peanut Butter is one of my favorite whiskey flavors, it makes for a GREAT chilled shot and combined with DeKuyper Razzmatazz or Chambord - a fantastic PB&J shot! I've tried a number of Peanut Butter flavored whiskeys and so far Ole Smoky's version in my book is the best one out there, better than the most popular, Skrewball, which is what most bars carry.
Today I'm trying Revel Stoke Peanut Butter Flavored Whiskey.
Revel Stoke is bottled in Minnesota, but their recipe for whiskey is Canadian inspired. Here's the marketing blurb from the company: This 2020 World of Whiskies award winner proves that peanut butter is not just for sandwiches any more! This drink has buttery notes and the mild spice of Canadian Whisky. The combination is exactly what you never knew you needed.
Revel Stoke hits all the peanut butter notes, it's got the sweet without being syrupy. It's smooth with a hint of vanilla and spice in the finish but the warm whiskey feel is a bit lacking. As always, I tried this whiskey neat, on the rocks and in a chilled shot. It's good any way served. It would also lend itself well to mixology, especially the aforementioned PB&J. Combining it with a chocolate liqueur is quite "Reeces" nice and pairing it with a banana liqueur is fun for an "Elvis."
Costing me $19.99 for a 750ml bottle, I'm giving Revel Stoke Nutcrusher Peanut Butter Flavored Whiskey 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's a good peanut butter whiskey, but not the best out there. It's a bargain compared to Skrewball, if you're into the budget buy. But if you're going down that road, you may want to consider Bird Dog as well. Of the Peanut Butter Whiskeys, my favorite continues to be Ol Smokey, reasonably priced with the best overall peanut butter flavor.
