I had admittedly high expectations after doing a ton of research on different brands and deciding on Monday. The packaging it came in was sublime, loved all of the bells and whistles on the packaging making it feel like a premium product. Neither one of these are *excellent*, but they both grew on me. I don’t recommend sipping either one of these neat or on the rocks - there’s just not enough flavor to make that experience enjoyable. The whiskey tastes a bit like a flat soda by itself, however, it does come alive when mixed with a fizzy water or a cola. I liked the bitter taste of the gin, I wish that came through more! All of the flavors could be punched up to not use so much of the product at once to taste it. I’d love a more “distilled,” concentrated flavor out of both. Overall they made some fine Thanksgiving cocktails and scratched the itch, but I’m not sure if I’ll reach for them first again.
