Dragon’s Milk Origin Small Batch Bourbon is the latest whiskey release from New Holland Spirits. Known for their Dragon’s Milk Beer (along with many others), the company has slowly been building their whiskey portfolio over the last several years. According to the press release, New Holland uses 100 barrels when blending Origin Small Batch.

Dragon’s Milk Origin isn’t the first time the brand has capitalized on the Dragon Milk name, as their bottled in bond version holds that honor. While that version comes across as more fruit forward, Dragon’s Milk Origin is more reminiscent of drinking a beer barrel aged bourbon. Except in this case, no barrel aging was involved, making this an intriguing sip. It’s full of spice and chocolate flavors, and is unique compared to other small batch bourbons it competes against at its price point. It’s this uniqueness that kept pulling me in throughout my time spent with this whiskey and is what makes this whiskey worth a try.
