Review: Pendleton Whisky, Original

"Pendleton® Whisky was specifically created to celebrate the bold spirit of independence and hard-work ethic of the American cowboy and cowgirl." It only seemed fitting to give the first taste test to some precision rifle shooters and farm boys from the East Coast. Smooth finish with smoky and not too sweet taste, the test proved successful. "Let'er buck"

We brought Pendleton Whisky from the American West to the East for a taste test…it passed.

The Taste

After a hot two day NRL Hunter rifle match in Georgia some Whisky aficionados were willing to give the bottle a taste. Mind you, this is without talking about what the Whisky is orginally going after.

Neat, they gave it a try. Words such as this were spoken,

Smooth, smoky, not too sweet, doesn’t burn, a citrus, maple syrup

Safe to say that it was a hit.

Claimed Flavors for the Original Bottle

Vanilla, honey, butterscotch and custard join together for a please aroma. Hint of freshly grated cinnamon bark.

Warm fall fruits and honey are balanced with a hint of spice to balance the flavor.

A medium balance and smooth finish.

Next for myself, I’ll be trying the Pendleton Paloma, a cocktail that the website states works great with the Traditional bottle.

Where to Buy

Pendleton Whisky can be purchased through ReserveBar, Drizly, Minibar, Bottle Haus, and at most local liquor stores across the country.
