New Hampshire’s Tamworth Distilling is again at it once more with one other oddity: Crab Trapper, a bourbon-based whiskey “steeped with a customized crab, corn, and spice mix combination, finest likened to a Low Nation Boil.” The inexperienced crabs used within the whiskey have an invasive species in New England for over a century, so utilizing them for whiskey makes nothing however sense, proper?

As with different Tamworth bottlings, we’re suspending disbelief and digging in. Right here goes.

Like many a Tamworth whiskey, there’s one thing instantly bizarre but someway participating with this expertise. There’s a particular maritime character to the nostril: salty and fishy, like shrimp or (extra clearly) crab shells left in a single day. The underlying whiskey is thankfully efficient at tempering this to a point, folding in vanilla, pepper, and oak notes, however that fishy Outdated Bay character is rarely removed from the nostrils. The palate is even fishier. Right here some baking spice notes maintain preliminary promise, however notes of cinnamon and nutmeg — and a few maraschino cherry — can’t fairly stave off the hearty crab boil notes that quickly come roaring again into focus. Whereas a bit gritty with notes of pepper and leather-based on the end, the drinker nonetheless can’t shake the sensation that they’ve a little bit of crab shell caught of their enamel that actually wants to come back out quickly.

92 proof.
