I am in no way a big whiskey drinker (wine is more my speed and I feel like somebody’s grandfather when I tell people that I have a bottle of bourbon), but I was more than a little pleasantly surprised.

Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon Whiskey (holy long name) is the latest offering from the lovely people at Jim Beam, and the first new concoction since the release of Jim Beam Black over 10 years ago. This new brew is smooth, and a bit sweet, as you can really taste the black cherry flavour. Pair with cola or just over ice in a glass, and you’re good to go!

A li’l icebreaker for your next night out – Red Stag is the first infused bourbon and uses four-year-old JB Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey so you know you’ve got the goodness in your glass.

Red Stag is available now at a mere $27.95.
