Social Hour is again with one other canned cocktail made with high-end elements. Like its earlier Harvest Whiskey Bitter, the brand new Dickel Bourbon Smash is made with age-statemented George Dickel Tennessee whiskey, this time 8 years outdated as a substitute of the monster 13 yr outdated final time round.
This “slow-sipping” bourbon cocktail is described as “a basic mint julep meets a whiskey bitter,” with Meyer lemon and muddled mint within the combine. A 250ml can carries three (official) servings.
Just like the Whiskey Bitter expression, that is an ultra-premium canned cocktail that has few opponents available in the market. Superbly balanced amongst its fruit, mint, and vanilla-laced whiskey parts, this seems like a hand-crafted cocktail that’s certainly onerous to place down when you begin sipping on it. The mint takes on a basil-like tone on the end, the tart lemon notice working with the vanilla within the whiskey to create a cohesive, enveloping high quality that just about feels creamy, as if some egg white has been added to the drink. (It hasn’t.) Spices that evoke cinnamon and cardamom — neither of that are talked about within the recipe — give the end one thing of a chai tea character, laced with spearmint.
It’s nice stuff, onerous to place down, and harmful in case you resolve to down the entire can. We’ll hold reviewing these as they launch, however right here’s the professional tip: In case you occur see a Social Hour product on the cabinets — as a result of they’re each seasonal and really onerous to search out — purchase it.
