December 2017

In the final release of the top of the month series we have a mighty fine Christmas time theme to turn it up with a little bit of competition! Only four drinks this month, so they all made the list, but it was a tight competition with a little bit of love for some and uniqueness for others, like the cheeky anniversary edition Jack Daniel's. It's very hard to separate these as they are all top quality drinks and we all loved em all! There's only one way to find the winner in the all whiskey lineup and that's to start the countdown!

 

Unlucky to be Last:

Perhaps the most standard and most refined at the same time, the fourth place for December is Teeling single malt whiskey. Not the best result, but the other beverages on the list attracted quite a big more attention this month, leaving Teeling a bit in the dust. Our tests left us agreeing with hardcore whiskey fans that this shouldn't be mixed with coke, but only because it doesn't really work. Although we were left wanting more this is a beverage definitely worth trying, but we recommend checking out the review first before you decide if this is the drink for you!

A Superstar, but Third:

Third place came down to basically a coin toss - second and third were just the close, but there had to be a winner and it is incredibly unlucky that this little piece of the Aussie footy experience came off second best. Cougar Bourbon comes in at third! There's not much to say other than we are Aussie and we love it, believe the stereotype: Aussie sports goers enjoy a cheeky cougar ;) Jokes aside, we certainly recommend checking this out, its cheap, delicious and well worth the risk involved with branching out. It also goes alright with coke - what more can you ask? Probably a lot more, but don't worry, all those questions can be answered by reading the whole review! :D

Sensational in Second:

A classic, a Canadian icon and no we don't mean Alan Thicke. Canadian Club manages to claw its way to second place. A gruelling showdown between cougar and Canadian Club, but this was a war that the classic CC was destined to win. Smooth and easy to drink are some words that describe it well and even though it is commonly ordered as a "CC and dry" it goes beautifully with a nice side of coke. If you haven't tried Canadian club, you should, but if you need more convincing read the review and let us know in the comments how you avoided trying it for so long!

And the Final First Place for 2017:

Unique. Limited Edition. Solid backstory. Sexy packaging and labelling. Theres really not more you can ask for out of our winner except taste, but the winner of December delivers that in spades. Jack Daniel's Red Dog Saloon Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey absolutely killed it this month and deservedly so. JD mixed it up a little with this one with that "sour mash" deal and quite honestly, though we don't really understand what that entails, it really works. This is one of the smoothest drinks you'll drink today. Maybe even tomorrow, but we don't know what you'll be doing then. JD's limited edition whiskey is a perfect winner for the last of the top of the month and unfortunately, this section will be way too long if we keep trying to sell you on it here, but once you try it you'll definitely thank us! The good stuff and the ways this sweet limited edition beverage makes your dreams come true can be found in the review below, but you have to give JD props: he has done this one right! Nice and memorable like a limited edition drink should be, we were left wanting more!

And that's all folks, Jack Daniel's Red Dog Saloon Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey has taken out the final top 5 of the month for the foreseeable future! An honourable effort from all of the whiskeys involved in December - all could have easily won the top of the month in a different month, but unfortunately they all came up against each other. All great whiskies in their own areas and for their own quirks and design, but Jack Daniel's latest limited edition version has stolen our hearts in time to take a long lasting title! For all your top drinks on with coke keep your eyes on Top 10 of All Time which is updated monthly! The reviews are back in action from now on, so keep on the look out for all the new and exciting drinks we find on with coke!
