We are lucky at DOTW to try the newest, hippest and edgy spirits and liqueurs. Often, I am not quite sure what to expect. Occasionally I am blown away – sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a bad way. Other times, I am pleasantly surprised. I will admit that when the bottle of Hiram Walker Whipped, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. However, I am happy to report that this was one of those times that I was pleasantly surprised. Hiram Walker Whipped was incredibly pleasant and adds a nice flair to cocktails. There is also something warm and toasty about the Whipped that almost makes me look forward to Fall. Here are our tasting notes:
Appearance: clear, water white in color with viscous legs
Aroma: clean, sweet tones of an array of lactic notes – cream, sweet butter, yogurt – with vanilla
Palate: sweet, well integrated alcohol with heavy mouth feel, notes of cream, sweet butter, yogurt, vanilla and a hint of coconut with a medium length of sweet cream finish
Rating: Good. Well balanced liqueur – preserves a touch of sweetness without being sickly sweet. Lovely lactic notes with vanilla and an almost coconut quality. Great addition to winter cocktails. Try with pumpkin liqueur to create a liquid pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.
