Sadly under U.S. rules, 'spirit whiskey' is a distilled spirit that contains at least 5% whiskey with the remaining up to 95% being neutral spirit (vodka). Kansas Clean is one such ‘whiskey’. The 5% whiskey component must confirm to the legal definition of whisky but may be very lightly aged.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/05/2013

Appearance

Clear, with a very faint straw yellow tinge.

Aroma

Waxy white chocolate, popcorn and cacao powder with vanilla and faint poached pear fruit.

Taste

Slightly sweet, milky chocolate and with delicate butterscotch, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of chilli spice and liquorice.

Aftertaste

Dry, lightly spiced and faintly smoky, white chocolate finish. This is a good product but as far as we are concerned it ain’t no whiskey. Hence our rating as ‘shameful’. Loose the whisky bashing branding and marketing and we’d give a good 4.
