I had a varied experience with this product. You need to be careful with the recipes and reduce the amount of this stuff you add to your drink. When I made my first drink, I didn't measure it and just poured in whatever amount to a Coke Zero. It was awful that first time and I had to get used to the flavor, which is more like rum to me. In any case, after reducing the amount I added to each drink, the taste got better. For example, I only add about one ounce to a 12 ounce Coke Zero, that is the sweet spot and tastes pretty good. Having said that, this stuff could use more improvement on the flavor front, it needs to be more smoky and less sweet. Even so, I give it four stars due to finding a recipe that works for me that I like. Be patient and try different things with it before you write a review. Good luck!
The Seir Hill Mashville is absolutely delicious. I like that it’s not sweetened at all, and it has a complex warming flavor. Strong clove and a little citrus and caramel. Very tasty. But it didn’t remind me much of whiskey or bourbon at all. I’m still enjoying it very much but it wasn’t what I expected.
it's a little watery, not as strong as i'd like. it doesn't taste like whiskey, but it has a taste all its own that i like. a spirit-like taste. i wish it had more of a kick and less of a price.
First off, they tell you straight up that this is for Mocktails. Do not try this neat. That said this is fantastic. I think my favorite was a mint julip. Another way I enjoyed this was with a little simple syrup and a bit of water. Great alternative. Fantastic.
the whiskey was a wonderful change from just having water! The smoky flavor and smell were there, and not sweet! Amazing!
Thank you for this! I am in recovery and wanted something fun for summer! This is perfect and I will order more and more. I’m Gluten Free so N/A beer is out of the question! I drink it over ice or add a little red bull zero for a long night! (Campfires) My favorite part is I don’t fall on my face after!! It has a warm vanilla taste to me that follows with a kick, minus the harsh alcohol sting! Thanks again! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
This is a great addition to drinks but it is not a alternative to bourbon in any way.
A relative can’t have alcohol but loves scotch. This was the perfect gift.
2nd order and enjoy this for a non-alcohol Old Fashion.
I love it and would recommend it. Unfortunately so do a lot of people. But it's worth the wait.
Tried it in a mule, Diet Coke and 7up all were a good replacement for the real thing. The only thing I missed was the hangover.
Whipped up a few mixed drinks with this and it has a very sweet apple taste. Almost tastes like a juice. I like the look of the bottle and that it doesn't have any calories, but it feels like I am drinking juice rather than an alcohol alternative. If you have the Ritual whiskey alternative, they go very nicely together. One shot of Mashville and one shot of Ritual make a nice mixture that seems a bit more similar to whiskey.
I wish it was bolder, darker and more complex. It is watered down and needs to be mixed with something to make it interesting and tasty. Maybe my hopes were too high for a whiskey alternative to meet. Glad I tried it though.
to me it's a go with actual alcohol. I may very well repurchase
The customer service and packaging were great! The bottle and label are classy! Very nice to display. However the taste was not good. I would’ve been ok if it tasted good even if it did not taste like bourbon. But I did not like the taste at all. And it had a very off putting after taste. It is very watery so I am not sure how it will be if mixed to make a cocktail, but I will try it.
I was surprised that it was cloudy! I liked the nose. I thought the initial taste was a little thin. It didn't have a real whiskey mouth feel. The taste was nice, but I really appreciated the aftertaste. It was complex and stayed around for a long time. Thanks, Parker
I've given up spirts many years ago, and on a whim I ordered Seir Hill see if it tasted like whiskey, and to me it taste like I remember the leaded stuff tasting, it is worth it
Best non alcoholic ever had/great customer service/ outstanding!!!!!!
While certainly not a replacement at all for whiskey, this is very excellent in mixed drinks by adding a kind of spice taste to them. I had only planned on purchasing one bottle to taste it, but I find I am using it all the time, so I will probably be buying more. Just do not drink this straight, you will regret it.
Didn’t like at first but by the time I finished bottle really enjoyed it
It's not fair to call it a whiskey, but an alternative is correct. It has a unique flavor that I've enjoyed!
Mashville has a deep smoky flavor but is very distinct. I love it in spiced apple cider, as a ginger and mash and also with any citrus flavor. Warms you beautifully as a hot toddy too! Thanks!!!!
It is definitely not meant to be drunk straight, but in a mixed drink it can do very well. It does have a very mild flavor so be very light on any mixers or other product. The Manhattan recipe they have on the website does a good job (I use some spicy bitters to help give it a kick similar to alcohol). I also use Whiskey stones to avoid watering down the drink.
