  • Excerpt: At only 80 proof, however, its flavors do come across as a bit subdued; a little higher strength would likely help it stand out in the category.

  • Excerpt: Cereal notes push through all of this and claw at the back of the throat — it almost feels like that gummy sweetness is an attempt to cover that cereal up, with a finish that hints at chocolate milk. It sort of works, but drinking it on its own the experience is muddy and imperfect. Best reserved for mixing.
