Feisty Nectar – Vanilla Orange Oat Whiskey
Announcing our newest Feisty Nectar: Vanilla Orange flavored Oat Whiskey
Way back when, before we opened, we did taste tests of some ideas we had. One of which was a vanilla orange infused whiskey and it was voted as the favorite of the bunch.
With a fruit infused (blackberry) and a spice infused (Saigon cinnamon) whiskey already in the Feisty Nectars arsenal, we decided to combine fruit and spice for everything nice.
Starting with a 100 percent oat whiskey, a soft and mellow grain, it has an easy drinking quality that lends itself well to the vanilla bean flavors and aromas. The orange is subtle with a zesty character that adds depth to the warmth of the vanilla. It finishes with a full oat whiskey body.
