The legendary Mickey Finn was an Irishman who emmigrated to the USA. He would soon settle in Chicago and open up the famous The Lone Star & Palm Garden bar on Whiskey Row. Mickey’s cocktails became the talk of Chicago and now Mickey Finn Apple Whiskey Liquor is a homage to his amazing drinks.
Mickey Finn is fun in a bottle. Once you open it you’ll get aromas of apples, sweetness, and tartness. I expected to be overpowered by a sugary sweetness but I was pleasantly surprised by the balance here.
It is not syrupy – it’s more like a light sweetness. You definitely get the taste of Irish apples in a clean fashion that doesn’t leave your palette with a chemical after taste.
Even better I still got a nice warmth from the whiskey profile that didn’t burn but still gives this bottle some edge.
I popped this bottle open during Thanksgiving and shared with my Mother. Typically she doesn’t go for whiskey but I just mixed Mickey Finn with some orange juice and she was hooked.
This is definitely a bottle you want to keep around when your inspired to make some fun cocktails. Cheers!Pin It
