Hot summer days go well with a soft whiskey that you can sip on.

The latest whiskey up for review is Mythology Distillery’s expression called Hell Bear . Mythology distillery is based in city of Denver and have some very unique blends.

Hell Bear has a story to along with the mythological name.   A Colorado prospector ventured into darkness. In the mine, he heard a loud snap– then he was falling! In a daze, in pitch black, he awoke, face-to-face with a unique creature– part bear, part badger. Resolved that today wouldn’t be his last, he rose and followed the glow of the creature’s eyes. The Hell Bear guided the explorer to the surface, then vanished back into the mine.
