I’m not real excited about watching a couple of slackers sticking a gun in their mouth – even if they are slackers. Especially when it’s a faux plastic pistol holding a cylinder of Bird Dog Maple Flavored Whiskey. Wait. What? Googling the abomination (the whiskey, not the pink revolver) I found this at bourbonandbroadleaf.com: “My first experience with Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey was amazing, but I got so wasted off it I totally forgot I had it for a couple of months.” Sounds about right. As does this take from bourbonandoak.com . . .
“On the nose Bird Dog Bourbon has a light wood aroma with a strong alcohol scent. On the palate there isn’t much going on here besides some light grain flavors with a faint trace of honey and maple syrup. The finish is short with the same flavors from above and a slight burn. The mouthfeel with this whiskey is very thin and the flavors tasted artificial.” Confirmed by this comment beneath: “I bought it specifically because I liked the dog on the label and because I was nearly broke at the time.” Good whiskey isn’t snow cone flavoring and no revolver should go in your mouth. That is all.
