Happy holidays! One of 12-15 traditional drinking seasons. For some reason the cold makes us more agreeable to sticky, rich and cloying sweets, treats and meats. Might be an evolutionary thing we inherited from our bear ancestors. #BearsNotMonkeys
Sortilege is Quebec maple syrup and Canadian rye & corn whisky blended together to become pretty much exactly what you’d expect that to taste like. After a rich and savoury meal this sweet liqueur will cut through the noise, however it doesn’t seem to stand up when enjoyed on its own.
nose – acrid, alcohol, chemical
neat – sweet, oily
finish – nice maple smoke, no heat
splash – no
overall – 6.1/10
Try it? Sure. Buy it? A good gift.
