Let me tell you, it was a real treat to taste. All of the whiskeys in the R6 catalog are different in their own way, but Carmela is really something to remember. Typically I don’t think of flavored whiskey as have a well-balanced flavor, since most of them are overly sweet and syrupy. The rep from R6 told me when I tried it, that it was going to blow my mind, and it did.
The smell of the whiskey on the nose was light, but was quickly overshadowed by vanilla, caramel and buttered sweet corn. My first taste, I immediately got salted caramel pecans on the front and that finished with a spicy black pepper and chocolate taste that left spicy cinnamon lingering behind for a couple of seconds.
Since then, I’ve poured a glass of Carmela a couple of times, and each time the way those flavors come in are the same just in a different order. Sometimes I’ll get the sweet corn last and the spicy chocolate first, or I’ll even get the cinnamon first with the buttered corn hanging on. No matter what order I receive the flavors it’s still the same delicious caramel flavored whiskey.
Carmela has easily climbed towards the top of the list for when it comes to favorite flavored whiskey. Right below Kurvball, sorry R6 Mama always said I can’t have dessert until I finish my dinner. . F
