This was too good to miss.
A random whiskey photo on Twitter caught my eye.
Just what was Czar?
After a bit of messaging & a whiskey swap – the Czar was mine!
I got stuck in.
Golden brown colour with very thick legs.
Odd beery nose. Almost a sweet fresh hoppiness coming through.
Very smooth on the palate.
The floral hoppiness continued mid palate before developing a heavier coffee element.
An agreeable growing prickly heat rounds up the experience leaving a touch of tingling on the tongue.
Turns out it’s a whiskey made from a Russian Imperial Stout emanating from the combined Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery of San Francisco.
I’m loving the experimentation.
Extremely entertaining & very engaging.
Whiskey like I’ve never encountered before.
