Whistler Root Beer

Tony has gotten me another great, rare soda! woo hoo, thank you sir! I love their bottle design, it is all twisty and fun with very classic looking logo and only the cap indicating what flavor you have. but i hate that it is only 8 oz. that’s annoying. i scaled the nutritional info to be for a normal 12 oz, so don’t get too alarmed by what you see below. it is also a returnable, refillable bottle. i always feel a bit guilty keeping such bottles, but it will go to the collection so hopefully that makes it worth it somehow.
this is actually a pretty unique tasting drink. it has a very strong taste of what i think is cinnamon. i like cinnamon so i am fine with that. there is something else herbal tasting mixed in which i can’t exactly place, perhaps sassafras to make it somewhat “rooty.” the carbonation level is low as is the head. it is interesting for sure. i’d drink it more if i could get it easily. it goes down easily and is tasty but isn’t exactly my favorite ever.

  1. I live here in MN and its ok, not my favorite, I give this a 60. But if your interested, they have about 15 or more flavors of Soda. I just came back from this store,

    They have all the flavors of Whistler brand. If you want to try some other flavors, let me know.

  2. You should feel guilty for keeping thse bottles Anthony ;). That’s the very reason they dumbed down their bottle design and switched over to a normal bottle design. This eliminates so many people not returning the bottles, because it’s not pretty.

  3. I was fortunate enough to try this soda (in their nice old style glass bottle) and I definitely thinks this deserves an 89. It’s got a very nice syrupy flavor to it. Is this unique to returnable glass bottle sodas or something? I once tried a Dunlin Dr Pepper in a returnable bottle and noticed the taste of extra syrup…..absolutely love it. I love the fact that it tastes like they give you a lot of flavor in such a small bottle, and it’s a very sweet root beer without tasting too sweet. This root beer has a kind of heavy vanilla flavor with some sassafras added. The nice lady who gave me a tour even noted that their is a hint I’d cinnamon. After she told me, then I could pick up the cinnamon note. Not bad stuff. I could buy a case of this. It has that “returnable bottle” flavor that I like.
