I had this fun idea at Wine & Liquor Depot to buy a "pot luck" bottle by choosing the highest ABV% bottle in the store. This was it. Well, yeah, I didn't quite realize it was grain (hey, it was a last-minute idea and all I was looking at was the %... but yeah, embarassing), and in those deceptively dark-green Cadenhead's bottles, how was I to know the stuff was nearly as clear as new make? Oh, the shame that washed over me as I nosed the alcoholy, spiritous, vodka-esque vapors. I hoped that the slight grassy and spicy aspects would make for a great palate... and, holy cow -- they did! For a moment. There's a really, really good spice aspect to this -- namely cinnamon, and it's very pronounced. I imagine that's why this was chosen to be bottled. Unfortunately, after a few sips, the alcohol rockets to center stage, especially in the Everclear, worst-part-of-a-jello-shot finish. Title: "Delicous Spice Drowned in Everclear."
