Things have been hot, hot, hot in Pennsylvania this summer with weeks of 90 degree days and 80 degree nights, but the Justmalt household LOVES the heat and especially the hot and spicy things that it brings with it like: fresh jalapenos from the garden, just-harvested spicy Romanian Red garlic curing in the sun, hot garden salsa peppers picked green, and onions that will make your eyes water.
So when a tall, red bottle of Prairie Fire Cinnamon flavored whiskey from the Iowa Distilling Company arrived on our doorstep, we were very excited to give it a try.
Have you ever noticed how on a hot, humid day, even the slightest of breezes, can turn that thin layer of ever-present sweat clinging to your body feel like an arctic wind blasting you with sweet, cool relief? Well, we think that Prairie Fire has a similar effect.
The folks at Iowa Distilling say their customers enjoy and recommend it straight, and we couldn’t agree more.
We tried it straight up, no ice cubes (they are for sissies), and nothing else - we loved the sweet, cinnamon-y heat of Prairie Fire that lingers pleasantly on your tongue for minutes afterward, and the cool after-effect it has on your mouth when you breathe in.
But you don’t need a hot day and a penchant for heat to enjoy this whiskey. Some ways we here at Justmalt plan to enjoy Prairie Fire in the future? In the cool, breezy evenings in the hot tub during our beach vacation; in the freezing Pennsylvania winters in front of a nice fire, and at any parties we plant to hold in the future.
Finally, we really like the packaging of this product - the sleek, tall bottle, flame-colored whiskey, and nicely designed label which compliments the color of the whiskey, create a striking package that is sure to capture positive attention.
Once again, thanks to the folks at Iowa Distilling for sharing their tasty and fun whiskey with us here at Justmalt.com. We look forward to seeing (and tasting) what the Iowa Distilling Company comes up with next.
