Fireball Cinnamon Whisky

Postby Muskrat Portage » Wed Nov 03, 2010 2:45 am

Anyone ever try this? I just noticed it today, took a quick look around the net and found nothing that would recommend it me. SOunds like a really bad idea to me, Canadian whisky mixed with cinnamon.

Maybe this is a throwback to the whisky they sold on the 'Plains 100+ years ago called "firewater" which was , if memory serves me right, rotgut whisky mixed with pepper and gunpowder. The NWMP stamped it out back then, maybe their present day offspring, the RCMP, outta do the same to this version.

I have to think there are many other spirits that would take to cinnamon a lot better than whisky.

This is actually the first whisky that I ever tried. Now that my tastes have moved on to mostly scotchs, I have to say that Fireball doesn't taste much like whisky.

Mostly, it just tastes like those cinnamon hearts that are popular around valentines day. The drink has a high sugar content, and IMHO it works best as a shooter or with a mixer.

If you like trying different things, you might find it worth picking up a small bottle.

I found it to be decent in a old fashioned glass of dry ginger ale.
