I received some Red Stag mini bottles as part of a holiday set in October. Yes, I know it is no longer October, but I am posting this review anyway. Don't like the rules? Go start your own site.
Before I decided to enjoy the Red Stag Cherry, I decided to try out the two varieties that were in the mini bottles.
I decided to try the Honey Tea. I was not really sure what to expect, but try it I will. I have to admit, Honey Tea just sounds like something to pass on. Honey Tea and bourbon makes me think of cough syrup, which is not really what I am looking to sip while I am watching football on tv.

I take a sip of the honey tea, and I am honestly not certain what the difference is between this, and the Red Stag Cherry. There is a little more of a bitter aftertaste, but not much else. I did not care for the bitter aftertaste, but you might be into that sort of thing. There is that good Jim Beam taste, and a little hint of flavor, but not much more. Stick with the Cherry one so far.

Red Stag Spiced with Cinnamon is a little more interesting. It hits with that classic Jim Beam bourbon taste, and then finishes with some cinnamon, making for an interesting taste. Since I like cinnamon, this one went down pretty well, especially in comparison to the Honey Tea.
I recommend the Spiced with Cinnamon, but I have to say stay away from the Honey Tea. That funny aftertaste really just was not very good. While the Cinnamon variety is a good drink, I am not sure I can recommend it over the Red Stag with Cherry.
