You can’t keep the Púca down!
Aldi’s exclusive Irish Whiskey brand has risen again as a pair of Pre Mixed Drinks – otherwise known as RTD’s, Ready To Drink.
The RTD market is growing fast so it’s great to see Blackwater Distillery venture into this arena.
I can’t say it would be my cup of tea – but I’m willing to sample what all the fuss is about.
Púca Irish Whiskey Mint Julep, 5%
A very pale coloured fizzy offering.
Definitely getting the mint influence – but struggling to pick up any whiskey elements out of the lemonade-y fizz.
Púca Irish Whiskey Mule, 5%
Pours like a fizzy whiskey – golden brown.
Deeper, darker aroma & taste. I do like a ginger ale myself but found the expected punch a bit muted & again – more lemonade like.
Ermmm – this is not how I enjoy my whiskey.
I’m so far off the demographics for these kind of drinks my palate is giving out to me.
When you actually love the taste, flavour & warm feeling experienced with whiskey – these RTD just leave me cold.
I’ll stick to my Púca Irish Whiskey neat in future!
