Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience. as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.
Strong blackberry, sweet, a slight alcohol kick at the end but not much.
Blackberry, sweet, thick. Hardly any alcohol flavour at all.
Lingering, sweet, sticky, blackberry.
Not what I’d have called a whiskey at all – more of a liqueur, the blackberry unfortunately masking any whiskey flavours this once contained. Very sweet and sticky, almost sickly but not quite. Would be very good in cocktails.
Classic Rock Match:
Following a post by @the_whisky_lady entitled ON THE ROCKS: Match Your Whisky With Rock Classics I’m going to try and match my tastings with a classic rock song.
For this dram I’m going with Def Leppard–Pour Some Sugar On Me.

Rocky Mountain Blackberry Whiskey
First released in 2007
40% Alc. by Vol. 80 Proof
The finest blackberries from the Rocky Mountain region are harvested over the summer, juiced, and blended with our whiskey, creating an intensely rich spirit. The whiskey rests in charred American barrels, where notes of vanilla, raisin, and oak are pulled from the barrel itself, flavoring the whiskey. The spirit is naturally colored by the barrel and blackberry juice used, without the aid of artificial coloring agents. Lastly, it is bottled by hand to maintain the integrity of the sweet blackberries and soft finish.
