“ANOTHER LONG HANG TIME WITH” … A FEW SHOTS OF LIGHTNING FROM THE WICKED TANGO DISTILLERIES!
WICKED 87 SPIRITS – AMERICAN LIGHT WHISKEY
By Michael Cohan
HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)8/22/15/—Doesn’t the name Wicked 87 conjure up images of a paralytic nature? It sure does while sampling this second version of intoxicating whiskeys from Wicked Tango LLC. Seth and Dorcie Fox of High Plains Inc. have again captured another bolt of lightning that is sharp on the tongue and should be consumed cautiously! The initial jolt of this honey flavored syrup thunders down the tributaries of your throat like rivers spilling into the ocean reaching all your senses and landing everywhere in your mind and body! This affect definitely creates the hang time associated with attempting to drink this 87 proof whiskey! Does anyone know what the word “light” is doing on the bottle?!
Upon further inspection of the label the beauty riding the lightning bolt is not a brunette that was mentioned in this reviewer’s first review, but she has black and red hair blowing in the wind. She is our rescuer of sorts as we try to ride out the long hang time during which our minds are taken back to the tattooed and hard core hair bands of the 80’s. Quite like listening to long guitar solos!
The company of Wicked Tango is the collaboration of friends Jim White and Larry Bross by living their motto” work hard and play harder.” They believed in the American dream and their company is based on these principles. It is simply, “no matter who you are there’s nothing like a little wicked fun after working long hours to provide for yourself and your loved ones.”
On a family ski trip to Steamboat, CO the two men ended up in a gondola lift bonding, laughing and drinking their whiskey, making fun of each other’s appearances. They were a few shots deep all grungy from a day on the slopes. The name of Wicked Tango came about when Jim said, “Dude, you’re simply tilted and over the top.” Larry’s retort, “Vacation baby, and Wicked it will be.”
Wicked Tango LLC was born with the owner’s desire to create a company that would not only make the most of every opportunity to let loose and enjoy life but could also sell the desire of the “Play Harder” concept of the American dream to all those deserving. As the guys says, “If we can work hard, enjoy the ride, and allow all those hard working folks around us to do the same then our company will be a success. Wicked, rowdy, fun and supportive of the American dream…we can all drink to that.
WICKED 87 AMERICAN – LIGHT WHISKEY
We couldn’t be more proud of our Wicked 87?s rich, clean and wickedly smooth high-proofed nature. This whiskey is distilled in the heart of Kansas from the highest quality, locally grown corn, and then aged to perfection in medium charred oak barrels from Missouri. This old-fashioned American Whiskey conjures up light notes of oak, butterscotch and hints of smoky vanilla. It’s a recipe for one rowdy night!
