Old Number 15
Adding to the whiskeys made in Kentucky we have Old Number 15! The smell at first is really not impressive in any way. It's not something that makes you keen for what you're about to drink. Unfortunately, the taste is equally un-spectacular. The shot really doesn't have much of a taste and is mostly made up of the alcohol burn. If you look hard enough you can identify some sweet undertones but this really doesn't make the shot any better to shoot.
The Bar Test
The coke really brings out the sweet undertones from the shot and thankfully makes up for the disappointing shot. It also enhances the sweetness of the coke. I don't think I've ever really seen this in a bar before but eh it goes alright with coke.
Definitely recommend adding this with coke rather than on it's own. Try to stay away from shooting this. This isn't something I would go out of my way to find. I would also spend a little more for something nicer. It's a good last resort drink.
1. Again not impressive similar to the shot but watered down with the shot of coke.
2. If you're looking for a good bourbon flavour then this here is a good ratio with coke.
3. Again a good ratio for a bourbon taste just with a tad more coke.
4. Normally at this point the original taste is completely overshadowed by the coke but not for Old Number 15. The taste goes alright. Give it a go if you have the chance.
