Review of Nine Banded Whiskey by TexasRealFood
Their name was inspired by the Nine Banded Armadillo which is the official state small mammal of Texas. Nine Banded Whiskey blends their whiskey with "limestone-filtered water from the Texas Hill Country". Distilled in Kentucky and bottled in Austin, their whiskey is "a soft whiskey despite its higher proof". It has "some peanut character amidst the caramel corn". The "palate is highly, surprisingly approachable at full strength, with the popcorn notes of young, corn-heavy spirit almost impossible to get around". You can also taste "hints of cola, red rope licorice, and hemp rope". It is a "mix of sweet and savory" flavor "that seems destined for mixing with Coke".
