    McKendric Western Style Whiskey

    I picked this up yesterday. Have not tryed it yet, say its made in Abilene Texas.

    Looks like an old style Whiskey Bottle with a leather swatch tied off with leather around the body of th bottle which reads;

    "Naturally flavored and colored with wood oak and Mesquite chips (90.4 proof)

    Has anyone had this stuff!!

    A search will find some other posts about it. A few people who've tried it have liked it. Most have not. It's bulk whiskey somehow treated with mesquite.

    It tastes a bit flat,has tones of dried fruit and its a bit smokey(woody?)perhaps a bit too young i don`t dislike it but prefer other whiskies.Its good for as a mixer.

    Don't really enjoy drinking it, but it's a nice marinade for a steak.
