Old Ezra with a Milky way.

Not really a trick or a treat, but certainly unique.

It nulls all of the Bourbons sweetness, and brings out black pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Kirkland Signature Bourbon with Milky Way.

This one is more trick than treat. While it also nullifies the sweetness the Kirkland is less peppery even without the chocolate, with the chocolate the Kirklands tastes like a mouth full of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest, with a hell of a lot of burn.

Milky way and White bush is a total flop, as White bush does not have a lot going to it in general, the milky way basically renders all the flavors but the alcohol of the White Bush obsolete.

So Milky way and White Bush, total trick.

Heath bar and Kirkland Signature Bourbon, actually a slight treat. Not sure how I can describe it, but the Toffee and chocolate bring out a sweet wood note in the whisky that I actually quite like. Sort of like a spiced maple syrup.

Kirkland Mac 15.

Brings out an odd nutty flavor, almost reminiscent of peanut brittle. And an odd oak flavor.


Treat.
