Canyonlands Confluence whiskey review & Moab Distillery/Brewery visit

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)

Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel. 

SJ's Rating- Bottom Shelf 
It is a shame they call it single malt whisky because it isn't! Absolutely the worst most expensive whiskey I have ever had. Has no smell, feels like you are putting gasoline in your mouth. Threw it away after a couple of sips. 
Occasion- Moab brewery & Distillery visit 
SJ's Pro tip- Terrible, avoid this 
Alternates- Jack Daniels, cheaper price-wise yet more flavorful
Cocktails- Don't ruin a cocktail with this terrible liquor
Food Pairing- N/A
Feel(After tasting)-Disgusted 😑

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)

Reads the product label "Our whiskey is made with pure Colorado plateau water and 100% barley, then aged in a variety of new and used charred American oak barrels for a two-year minimum. Like the confluence of the rivers, we straight blend our barrels to make a spirit that is bold and complex with notes of malt, warm caramel, and spice ". This product story is entirely rubbish, yes it might have come from colorado river but I doubt 100% barely tastes so bad!

There are good whiskies and there is Canyonlands Confluence. 😀I am still happy to sample it and inform my readers to avoid it. It's a tough job but someone needs to do it 😉.
