  1. whisky313 scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    The Battalion is named in honour of the Battalion San Patricos, (Saint Patrick’s Battalion) a group of Irish men who fought for Mexico in the Mexican/American War of 1846-1848.

  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 68 points Expert Senior

    Unpleasant, young, rude, completely mediocre grain whiskey, which reminded me very much of vodka. Unfortunately, the idea with a cure in tequila and mezcal barrels is just a marketing ploy. JJ Corry, The Battalion - whiskey level of the most primitive cheap blend. Digging into it, disassembling it into components, makes no sense.
    • Nose
      The virtuoso aroma strongly resembles the simplest, cheapest blended whiskey. In the foreground, yeast, stale bread, plastic and cardboard are felt. If you sniff, you can still distinguish a citrus note, but very deeply. Poorly!
    • Taste
      Primitive sweetness, gray stale bread, a little salt, a drop of lemon juice, a taste of paper and something that is remotely reminiscent of tequila.
    • Finish
      Short, sharp, repeating flavor palette. There is also a specific, slightly brackish echo, vaguely reminiscent of tequila and mezcal. In the end, the taste of vodka remains in the mouth.
