I reviewed Oak & Eden’s Bourbon & Brew earlier in 2020, and was impressed by how integrated the coffee and bourbon flavors were making for a coffee infused bourbon that was enjoyable neat. However, while Bourbon & Brew maintained a place as a sipping whiskey, Devil’s River Coffee Bourbon does not. It is overly sweetened and tastes artificial as a result. Aside from this general sweetness, roasted coffee dominates leaving little room for anything else. At only $25 however, this does make a nice addition to support a coffee-themed cocktail, and with its dominating sweetness and coffee flavors that is where it is relegated to be. I’m sure pulling back the sweetness would help a bit to treat this as a sipping whiskey, however I don’t feel that’s what this really is. In short, this is coffee flavored whiskey the same way Fireball is cinnamon-flavored whiskey and Skrewball is peanut butter-flavored whiskey. If Devils River simply changed their positioning with the marketing of this brand they might just have a winner.
