OK, we’ve seen plenty of cocktails in a can but whiskey in a can? Are these any good? Let’s find out, my thoughts below.
Post Meridiem Double Old Fashioned $3.99 (Straight Bourbon Whiskey, blend of three bitters, Demerara syrup and orange zest oil): This is at 37% ABV and at 100ml it serves about 2-3 servings. The orange notes are extremely strong, and that might be since an orange zest oil is used. You also get loads of the bitters. The whiskey is not too overpowering and it’s not too sweet.
Slow and Low Rock and Rye $7.49 (Straight Rye Whiskey, Honey, Navel Orange Rock Candy, and Bitters): This is 42% ABV and at 100ml it also serves about 2-3 servings. This one is much syrupier. Lightly sweet at the top before you are hit with the bitters. Orange notes are present but not too overpowering. Here the bitters have more of a presence both at the start and end.
Whiskey in a Can
Two Stacks Irish Whiskey $3.99 (40% Dark Grain, 40% Light Grain, 8% Pot Still, 10% Double Malt and 2% Peated Malt): This blended whiskey is 43% ABV and the can is also 100 ml. While the whiskey is distilled and matured in Ireland, the product is canned in Minnetonka, MN. It’s smooth, light, with notes of grain, vanilla, and oak.
So, simply put, all three are ok, but they are not must-haves or a product you are missing out on if you don’t try. I love that they’re portable and they’re not terrible. Good if you’re out camping, tailgating or want a quick drink without having to open a bottle. Their size and cost make them easy for you to sample without any guilt.
