Cascade Blonde American Whiskey Is Perfect For Sipping…Or For A Toddy, If That’s Your Style

Cascade Blonde at Blakey’s house about to be mixed with cider.















The good folks at Cascade Blonde American Whiskey sent both Joe and me a bottle of their whiskey to try out. They pitched it as the perfect drink for the fall and it lived up to the expectations for me. If I’m being honest, I’m not normally a whiskey guy but I really liked my Cascade Blonde. It is a little lighter than other whiskeys and that made it much smoother going down. I threw a couple cubes in my first glass and tried it, then decided to move on to one of their signature cocktails.

Cascade Cider

  • 1.5 oz Cascade Blonde
  • 3 oz Apple Cider (Red Jacket when available)
  • Small Orange Wedge
  • Cinnamon stick garnish

If we’re being honest, I didn’t have any oranges or cinnamon sticks but I did mix some cinnamon powder into my drink and this thing was delicious.

Make yourself a Cascade Toddy like Blakey, not like a bartender making it too fancy.

I used my new apple cider that I got at the pumpkin patch on Sunday and had myself a lovely cocktail. Would recommend this specific cocktail and the Cascade Blonde to anyone that enjoys a nice fall drink while watching some football. It’s also a great gift to get your dad that’s not socks! Please drink responsibly (unless you’re a Browns fan).

BC review: Here’s how I drank the Cascade….straight. That’s right, if I’m going to taste American Whiskey, I want to see how that first sip goes down. I want to feel it. I want to know if this Cascade Blonde (750ml bottles retail for about $20) is as smooth as I was told it would be. The result: yep, it’s smooth, goes down easy and those of us sitting around watching college football could do so like real adults who don’t have to slam shots to have a good time.

Now I get why Blakey mixed it with the apple cider. He’s young, just out of college, hasn’t cut much grass in his day. Doesn’t sit out back manning the BBQ. He is more of a toddy drinker. My toddy days are pretty much over. I don’t want ice, I don’t want cider, I don’t need anything besides that bottle and a nice glass to sip while I think of all those years drinking horrible whiskey that would power a rocket ship.

Do yourself a favor, go get a bottle and sip it. Now I just have to figure out how to get my hands on one of the Cascade coolers for next summer’s canoe trip. Sip and paddle for hours.
