"Whiskey Don't Keep."
Well i wish they would quit. I had some Canadian club from 1979 over the weekend, it had no caramel in it like it seems to now iand it was great also.
I finally got around to buying a bottle of this (11.99!). I really enjoyed it. Quite simple, as many have said. It reminded me a tiny bit of:
- A Wheater. I wonder if this is because there's no rye to hide the corn. I've heard it said that wheaters are sweet not because wheat is sweet, but because there's no rye to cover the corn.
- Scotch. Maybe this is from the used barrels?
But those are just distant comparisons. It's just a very nice drink with a character of its own.
There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there. - GK Chesterton
Mellow Corn actually reminds me of tequila. I know it sounds odd, but they're both light and free from a lot of strong wood flavors. "Spirity" isn't a real word, but Mellow Corn and young tequila seem spirity -- the alcohol and grain/plant flavors aren't overpowered by wood.
7 Crown is a good product. I've often said numerous of the blended whiskeys put out today, albeit with restricted percentages of straight whiskey, can be a good drink - not all but some. Someone should buy a couple and review them.
