Coke's a big nope. So is sour mix. But this is absolutely fantastic in coffee, where the nuttiness disperses and the butteriness adds well to a full-bodied roast. It's also delicious in a milkshake, provided you go with something neutral like vanilla or chocolate, and steer away from sweeter things like Butter Pecan or Kelis.
Conclusions This is a perfect coffee whiskey, but not so much a good playing-poker whiskey. If there was a greater focus on bourbon over nuts, William Wolf could be really onto something. As it stands, it's more of a dessert than a main course.
