I was led to believe this was non alcoholic whisky.
Smells ok, tastes nothing at all like whisky , does not have the consistency of whisky.
closest to the real thing

Does not taste like whisky

I was excited to try this because I liked scotch but quit drinking a couple of months ago. There are lots of good near beers available but no whisky. I bought two bottles. It is undrinkable. I tried it twice. Neat and then lots of ice. Even added the ginger ale. This does not taste like scotch whatsoever. I have one open bottle and a second one that I have no idea what to do with.
Good for the memory!!

My dad has the beginning stages of dementia and his geriatric doctor suggested he give up alcohol to help show down the progress. He didn't mind giving up wine or beer but loved his whiskey. My daughter researched non alcoholic whiskeys and liked the reviews Whissin received. My dad hasn't missed his regular brand of whiskey. he didn't even realize he wasn't drinking alcohol. So now he gets to enjoy his whiskey and his family knows that his dementia won't be progressing because of alcohol consumption. A win win for all.

I found it too sweet to be considered an alternative to rye or scotch. I agree wholehearted with M. Swindley. I am open to any other alternatives you might suggest.
A True Dichotomous Whisky
Posted by M. Swindley on 16th Aug 2016
I was truly very excited to be one of the first to try this product, and post my thoughts and review.
I have one word to describe Whisson : dichotomous.
On the one hand, the nose is spectacular. At first sniff with eyes closed, you could mistake this as a lighter Highlands single malt (think: Highland Park or Glenlivet).
The colour is a nice light golden. Despite not having any alcohol in the drink, it coats the glass like a single malt when swirled.
On the other hand, the taste, from the front to the finish, leaves much to be desired. This is not a replication of a single malt whiskey. Rather, it is reminiscent of ginger ale gone flat.
The list of ingredients shows the inclusion of citric acid. It would appear to me that too much citrus has been introduced. I can imagine the drink maker wishing to have some sort of floral note to the finish, but it is overkill in my view.
The drink is virtually unpalatable when drank neat. It is marginally better chilled with whisky rocks.
Introducing a couple ice cubes into the mix made the drink much more palatable. It cut down on the citric sweetness, but the sweetness is still fairly overpowering.
Of course, if you like to enjoy a little rye and ginger or Rye and Coke, this would be a suitable complement. However, do not expect a comparable experience to a single malt.
