This beverage merges the rich, deep notes of coffee liqueur with the caramel-like sweetness of cola, all underpinned by the robust presence of whiskey. Served in a highball glass, the drink offers a nuanced taste experience that might appeal to those who enjoy the classic taste of whiskey with a caffeinated twist. Its larger volume serves as a refreshing choice for sipping over a longer period, making it suitable for social gatherings or a leisurely treat. Despite its relatively low alcohol content compared to other whiskey-based concoctions, the North South Divide holds its own with a distinctive flavor profile that combines sweetness, bitterness, and the warming sensation of whiskey.
