    Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    I am so happy TPS had their free shipping deal so that I could get 3 bottles of Mellow Corn. This is definitely not an everyday pour, but when I'm in the mood I absolutely love it. It's just smooth, buttery corn with enough burn to keep me interested. It reminds me of BT White Dog, which I do like from time to time.

    Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    Well, I hate to say it, but Mellow Corn gets no love from me. I tried to like it, I really did, but it's just not to my taste.

    But that's OK, just more for you guys!

    Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    I also want to add that mine says distilled at DSP 354, bottled at DSP 31. Is this normal, for them to be different? I have not seen another bottle with two different numbers on it.

    Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    I just did a side-by-side of my three Straight Corn Whiskeys:

    Mellow Corn BIB DSP 31
    Old Dispensary BIB DSP 12
    J. W. Corn (not BIB but 100 proof, no DSP)

    In all honesty, I cannot tell much difference between the three except maybe:

    The JW Corn seems newer and "cornier"
    The Old Dispensary seems "older"
    The MC seems sweeter.

    But then it was not a blind taste and I may have been influenced by knowing which was which.

    I know Old Dispensary is a Barton Product but I wonder what the difference between MC and JWC is?

    They are fun to drink on occasion.

    Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    I've got a nearly empty 375ml of Mellow Corn in a hip-flask shaped bottle (DSP 31). I turn to this from time to time when I'm looking for a change from my barrel strength bourbons.

    Light, sweet, oily, corny. It's all good.

    Similar to when I put "Glen Campbell - The Capital Years" on the turntable after I've been listening to Disturbed on the iPod.

    Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    Been meaning to post here.

    I do like corn whiskey for a change of pace, and MC is a nice example. My only complaint, if I had to make one, is that it is almost too mellow. I've written elsewhere comparing this to Platte Valley (3 years old/80 proof). Platte Valley has more rough edges (which I like) but I prefer the higher proof of the Mellow Corn.

    And wow, the price is definitely right. Hopefully we'll see this on the shelf in Minnesota sooner than later.

    JW corn, I am pretty sure is a variation of the HH corn line. It must be younger than MC. It does taste lighter, very scotch like I though. The other label is dixie dew. Only available in Alabama. Damn fine stuff. I would say it is the oldest of the 3.

    JW Corn and Dixie Dew are both 3yo, Mellow Corn has the most age at 4 years (and is the only BIB). JW Corn and Dixie Dew both have very limited distribution (not that Mellow Corn is so big...)--you are correct that Dixie Dew is only in Alabama, JW Corn is available in Virginia, and for some reason 15 cases of JWC shipped to Montana. There is much more (over 5 times) Dixie Dew in AL than JW Corn in VA, but not a lot of either.

    Georgia Moon is by far the largest of our corn whiskey brands however, distributed in nearly every market in the country!

    Picked up a couple of bottles of Dixie Dew while in Alabama this week. Looking forward to comparing it with the Mellow Corn. They do look pretty similar in color.
