Here’s a full review of Mango Habanero Whiskey from the appearance to the taste and price.


The drink in the bottle has a golden brown color that makes it look earthy. Coupled with the black cork and half-torn name tag, it looks and feels so down to earth. The shape of the bottle makes you feel like you’re drinking something rare.


On opening the bottle, you won’t be hit with the regular strong alcohol smell. Instead, you’ll smell mangoes. But don’t be fooled because this drink still has a 35% ABV.

When the whiskey hits your tongue, it tastes sweet initially because of the mango. But the sweet taste is juicy, not overpowering or artificially sweet. It also has a hint of smokiness. The habanero heats up the back of your throat and adds a spicy aftertaste to the whiskey.

The mango and habanero work so well together that they manage to blunt the strong whiskey taste most people hate. However, it still has a hint of whiskey burn.

This whiskey isn’t for you if you’re looking for something to get you drunk quickly. Try vodka or tequila. Mango Habanero Whiskey looks and tastes like something you’re supposed to savor.

It exudes an aura that is for celebrating special occasions. It’s not something you drink often, otherwise, you won’t appreciate its spectacular taste.


For a whiskey that looks and tastes elegant, you’d expect to break the bank to purchase it. However, a bottle of Mango Habanero Whiskey costs anywhere from $20-30. It’s well affordable, and that’s why people love it so much.
