Magners Irish whisky
Magners have released a few different flavours this year, and while we have sampled their other two offerings we will leave them for another post!
Their Irish Whisky flavour is attention grabbing from the off! Not only is it an escape from the usual flavoured offerings, but it is so out there we just had to get some! That in itself wasn't easy! The folks at Magners only supplied us the name of one stockist, which it turned out doesn't operate in these parts. With persereverance and dedication to our booze we managed to track some down and eagerly gave it a go
To begin with, as interesting as it sounds, This does sound terrible.. It shouldn't work, it just can't work! Whisky and cider! Cider with a whisky chaser is one thing, but no one would ever think to put them in the same glass!
I admit I was apprehensive about the first few sips! But it surprises.. It tastes like a perfect mix of Magners and whiskey.. The Whisky does overpower the cider taste, but the fact the cider is there makes it refreshing and palatable. Kudos to Magners on breaking from the norm, it's a bold move and a refreshing change!
Definitely worth a try! Would be interested to know what whisky they used to make this
