Hiram Walker Butterscotch
15% Alcohol (30 Proof)
Now that we are officially into Fall, it's time to start warming up for the cool months ahead! Get out your sweaters and scarves, make a pumpkin pie, and make yourselves a nice, toasty drink.
Not too long ago, I reviewed a couple Hiram Walker liqueurs perfect for the Fall season, their Original Cinn and the new Caramel Apple, both surprisingly great and very well-priced! Now, I'm looking at other of their liqueurs that seems perfect for this time of year, their Butterscotch Schnapps.
Hiram Walker's Butterscotch Schnapps is a golden honey color, fitting for butterscotch. It smells toasty and buttery, as expected. You take a sip (if you're trying it neat) and get silky, salted butter and rich authentic butterscotch notes that are only mildly sweet. To me, this tastes exactly like butterscotch candies. You know, these ones:
It's as if those little candies have been melted down and put into a bottle. With a bit of alcohol, of course. I'm actually surprised how much this tastes like the real thing... in liquid form. Like I said, the sweetness is actually pretty mild, making it easy to mix, which is one of the best parts about Hiram Walker's line of schnapps.
Speaking of cocktails, go check out Hiram Walker's Fall cocktail contest at their Facebook page for a chance to win an iPad. All you have to do is come up with a Fall-themed cocktail using some of the Fall-type Hiram Walker schnapps, which includes the Butterscotch, Caramel Apple, and Original Cinn!
So, go check it out. Tell 'em I sent ya. And good luck!
Drink This: if you want an authentic, Butterscotch schnapps that tastes just as it should.
Don't Drink This: if you are looking for something to drink neat. This is definitely a mixer, but a tasty one.
