Drink Review: Ole Smoky Chocolate Cherries Moonshine
I'm an Ole Smoky fan, they make a fantastic peanut butter flavored whiskey that's better than Skrewball! I've also sampled their Ole Smoky Butter Pecan Moonshine which was quite tasty. Also good, their Apple Pie Moonshine as well as their Sour Apple Moonshine. So in liking all those and kind of staying on a Moonshine trend, I decided to give their Chocolate Cherries Moonshine a try.
If you didn't already know, White Whiskey is "new" whiskey, as in a raw, unfinished product, "unaged." White Whiskey skips the aged in oak barrels step so what you get is naked grain alcohol - Moonshine!
I was looking for something a little different to try on a recent trip to the liquor store, I'm a sucker for chocolate covered cherries and what? I see chocolate, cherries and moonshine in a jar? What's not to like?
Here's the product description: Leave it to Ole Smoky to improve upon cherry perfection. We took Maraschino cherries and soaked 'em in a batch of Ole Smoky Moonshine, then we added a note of milk chocolate. The result? The chocolate covered cherry- flavored moonshine was born.
Back in the day and I'm talking bootlegging now, the only way to enjoy 'White Lightening' was straight from the jug. There were no mixers, no ice, no enhanced flavors, you drank it straight. The beauty of moonshine these day's is there's no single way to enjoy it and Ole Smoky demonstrates that with the Chocolate Cherries variety. It's chocolate covered cherries with a kick!
Here's another Ole Smoky creation that at 100 proof, you don't notice how much of a punch the stuff has. You get the whiff of chocolate in the nose, you get the taste of cherry up front followed by the milk chocolate - a nice blend - and the finish is moonshine warm.
Costing me a bit over $20 for a 750ml jar, I'm giving Ole Smoky Chocolate Cherries Moonshine 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's a good change of pace kind of thing and puts a nice chocolate spin on an old fashioned.
