1-Ole Smoky Salty Caramel Whiskey: The salted caramel flavor here is a bit overwhelming. We found that it needed more whiskey for balance. GSN Rating: B
2-Ole Smoky Mango Habanero Whiskey: If you like it hot, this is the one for you. We expected a soft warming heat, but this one is quite spicy. One sip and our mouths were burning for several minutes. The mango flavor is nice though. GSN Rating: B-
3-Ole Smoky Peach Whiskey: One of our favorites. Peaches and whiskey marry well together. We like the sly sweetness, but the whiskey shines here. GSN Rating: A
4-Ole Smoky Salty Watermelon Whiskey: An odd one for sure. We’d never heard of salting fresh watermelon. This one doesn’t really work, as the two characters of watermelon and whiskey never mesh. GSN Rating: C
5-Ole Smoky Peanut Butter Whiskey: Another winner. Nicely nutty and balanced well with the whiskey, this one is perfect. GSN Rating: A
