    Canadian Mist Black Diamond

    The front label of new Canadian Mist Black Diamond describes it as "a richer, more robust blended Canadian whisky." That's exactly what it is. I couldn't have said it better myself.

    My complete review is here.

    Sacrilege Chuck: "With Noilly Pratt Sweet Vermouth and Fee Brothers Cherry Bitters it makes a richer and more robust manhattan."

    A Manhattan with canadian is just plain wrong although I know it is done.

    Following in the footsteps of Crown Royal perhaps? I like the Crown Royal Black. Don't think I'm gonna buy the Canadian Mist though. Joe

    Re: Canadian Mist Black Diamond

    Where Canadian whisky is strongest, particularly in the Great Lakes states, my parents generation may have drunk bourbon on the rocks but they used "rye" (i.e., Canadian) for manhatttans and other mixed drinks. In some places, American and Canadian blends were used interchangeably but all mixed drinks that called for whiskey were made with blends. That's starts to fall off as you go south, even within Ohio or Indiana, for example.

    That's not so much the case now. Modern cocktail culture eschews blends. The manhattan was probably originally made with American straight rye whiskey and that's what purists use now, but plenty of people use bourbon.

    Plus I didn't have any 7Up or ginger ale in the house.
