“How is it?”

“It’s almost a Manhattan, but not quite. “

The Verdict: Good

From The Tasting Notes –

Obviously, very similar to a Manhattan (made with whiskey), but smoother in flavor. Good.  And according to Wine Spectator, it’s no longer a faux pas to use Scotch in a cocktail, so be ashamed no more and drink up!

Also, EVERYONE* knows that the best Manhattan is made is with brandy.

*Everyone being everyone in Wisconsin, that is.
