The Deer Hammer mixed drinks combine interesting ideas into fascinating flavors you'll remember and come back for even if you usually choose 'house' brand liquor just to save a buck. Here you'll TASTE the whiskey right through the crazy mixtures and get to appreciate the inventiveness of both. It's a 7$ drink that you remember the taste of and come back for.
The whiskey is good straight - really good - and you should make a point to have a glass that way and savor the craftsmanship that goes into this small-batch flavor. My palate isn't that trained but I would say less charred than most American whiskeys but not sweet like Canadian or as salty as Scotch. Just a great match of smooth flavors and little aftertaste. Then move on to the mixed concoctions... like sweet? The High Roller matches coconut with fruit and almond and lets the whiskey shine through.. a sweet drink for people who LIKE the taste of whiskey straight up but need some sugar in their veins.
I went in just to sample the whiskey and go somewhere else but ended up having several menu items and spending most of the night talking about them with locals and other tourists as it's quiet but cozy and a really friendly atmosphere and you'll easily talk about the flavors with whoever you sit next to. Check it out for yourself.
