Review: Hiram Walker Caramel Apple Liqueur

Oddball combo spirits week continues here at Drinkhacker with what sounds like a natural one: Caramel Apple Liqueur. Hey, if nothing else you can at least be absolutely certain that this is one spirit that contains caramel color.

A light and minimalist liqueur, this is a relatively mild concoction that is more reminiscent of the various honey-flavored whiskeys than anything else. The nose is more caramel than apple, sweet but not cloying, and flavorful in that cheap-bulk-caramels-you’d-get-for-Halloween way.

On the tongue, a mix of both are evident: The apples are a bit on the candied side — more kids’ apple juice than fresh, tart Braeburn — but authentic enough. Maybe a touch of cinnamon in there, too. For what it’s worth, all the flavors are natural.

Overall: Fine, totally what you would expect, and perfectly fair.

30 proof.
