Sons of Liberty Pumpkin Spice is truly a unique whiskey from the Rhode Island craft distiller.
32,000 lbs of Rhode Island pumpkins were pressed to create the juice that flavors Sons of Liberty Pumpkin Spice Whiskey. In order to live up to its name, cloves, allspice, cinnamon, vanilla and orange were were also added to a young single malt NAS spirit.
The result bears no resemblance to a sugary synthetic Pumpkin Spice latte. Instead, as you might expect from a craft distiller, you get a young American malt combined with pumpkin juice and a small spice rack. The nose is coffeelike, with a dusting of cloves, tea leaf, tobacco (cigars, really), and roasted grains. The pumpkin is revealed in the whiskey’s body, where it truly presents the drinker with a unique experience. The squash’s milder nature contrast with the whiskey’s harsher ways, making for an experience that is better experienced than described. On the tail end, the cinnamon is revealed before giving way to heavier coffee notes.
