Peanut butter whiskeys are the innovation to emerge from the flavored drink category. The 1st one to hit the market was from SKREWBALL, who say that their unique bottling idea was born from the passion of a foodie and bartender who owned a local watering hole.
This SKREWBALL Peanut Butter Whiskey was made when Steven YENG mixed his two favorite flavors – Whiskey and butter – into a single drink with the help of his wife.
Even from the early times of its advertising, the bottle label said Whiskey with cameral color and natural tastes.
Produced by the California Spirit Company, the Peanut Butter Whiskey is bottled at 70 proof, has a corn base, and costs around 20 bucks.
SKREWBALL Peanut Butter Whiskey review
This is an ideal blend of a fine old whiskey featuring loud and bold flavors with peanut butter’s smooth and rich feel.
The Whiskey was featured in the world’s best-flavored whiskeys list at the NY World Wine and Spirits Competition, which says out loud how combine goes down the throat.
Though this mightn’t be the one most whiskey drinkers would crave for, and a casual night, it remains an excellent option for those looking for something simple to gulp. SKREWBALL Peanut Butter Whiskey is also remarkable for beginners into the spirits, and it is not a sour gateway drink either.
This liquor is worthy of finding to quench the demand of those drinkers who need little help with enjoying bourbon or Whiskey. You can have the Peanut Butter Whisky with coffee, on ice, or as a cocktail, with some vanilla bean ice cream.
The liquor has the most OK scope in making cocktails as well. A reputed cocktail and whiskey taster said I am getting peanut butter whiskey. That also undertones of chocolate, which makes me feel like it would make a next-level, incredibly decadent dessert cocktail – it mudslides anyone?
Or mix it with Apple cider to be a very drinkable version of my favorite snack, PB and Apples.
I was 100% skeptical when I saw it, but now I believe in its super abilities to make a tasty and unexpected cocktail.
The drink is naturally colored with caramel, giving it a medium oak appearance. The whisky color is distinctly the same as the average scotch. It looks like a regular whisky at 1st glance.
When you spot the peanut butter in black front on the bottle, you realize that what you’re about to take is something out of the ordinary.
Initially, the nose is hit with a whiff of honey and warm peanuts. Once the settles, the intensity of the peanut butter right sets in. it’s akin to opening up a jar of fresh, homemade peanut butter and taking a big sniff – it has an irrefutable comfort.
After a more profound odor, you start to pick up on a few subtler notes.
Shortbread, caramel, and vanilla also come via on the palate. Overall, it’s a wonderfully nutty and sweet aroma. You struggle to pick up o the drink but considering it’s also subtle in flavor, this is unsurprising.
Yet, another element that makes it smooth to drink.
Upon first taste, there’s an immediate hit of sugary sweetness to the palate. Vanilla comes through with a hint of roasted peanut at first Whiskey rapidly followed by peanut butter.
The flavor is comparable to Reese’s Peanut butter cup and Butterfinger Candy, candy in a glass. The texture of the whisky feels a little thick on the palate, reminiscent of eating actual peanut butter.
This is not unexpected with a being such a sweet drink.
It’s also undeniably smooth on the palate. How you pick to drink this Whiskey depends purely on your taste, it’s versatile.
If you prefer to have your drink on the rocks, you will be pleased to know that the ice only leads to a slight dilution of the flavor and the sweetness.
It can also be taken as a shot and is quite well-known as a dessert drink. The sweetness means it works incredibly well as an ingredient in a fun cocktail. Make sure that you do not add another sweet component to it. The flavors are there, and they are staying put.
This is the total sugar you will need.
Lastly, it goes down extremely quickly. The alcohol burn is present but is not as punchy as it can be in other whiskies. This makes it a great entry-level option for those more amenable to a sweeter drink.
Despite the lessened alcohol flavor on the palate, the whisky leaves a slight burning sensation afterward, but not as huge as comparable liquors. The peanut butter makes a pleasant appearance in the sweet, and it tends to linger.
There’re slight hints of Ethanol that come and go among the firm peanut butter and Vanilla remnants in the long finish. Lastly, honey and nutmeg also peak through occasionally.
- Reasonably priced
- Popular and well-known brand
- Pleasant to drink
- Readily available online and in-store
- Too sweet for specific palates
There is no getting around the fact that I had mixed feelings about this. As whisky purists, it looks like all about this product is off – there is just something little gimmicky about the entire thing.
But if there is one thing that we know, that flavor comes a lot, and you can get away with much if your drink is tasty.
So as much as it might pain us and several others to admit it, this peanut butter whisky is pretty darn delicious. It would not be your go-to after-dinner drink. Nevertheless, you will find that it is a fun one to have in the locker.
It is especially recommended to serve those who do not like Whiskey all that much, but you wish to have a whiskey night. Just do not be mad how much they love it.
