    Just what is Southern Comfort anyway?

    Been to their site. Apparently it has whiskey flavoring?

    If anybody could help with more info I'd appreciate it.

    Peachy/tangeriney/nectariney syrupy sweetly flavored cheap vodka which will get your date drunk quickly and leave a citrusy scent behind when she throws up on your sheets.

    Peach-based liqueur? That's what it's always tasted like to me.
    Maybe some whiskey in there? ... And, maybe even some orange flavor as well?

    Orange probably, but no whisky since close to forever.

    I believe the official description for it is "Crap" but "college freshman girl panty remover" is not an unreasonable alternative.

    Chuck did indeed have a connection to it long, long ago in a whiskey galaxy far, far away.

    Ah, apricot, that's what I couldn't remember. I do recall though the widespread belief that it was peach flavored Bourbon.

    Re: Just what is Southern Comfort anyway?

    I knew I should have stayed out of this thread. Your orange citrus descriptions just brought back a lot of memories I thought I had forgot. My college dorm roommate would often split a fifth of this garbage with another guy. The other guys was 200 lbs. My roommate was 140 lbs soaking wet. The bigger guy would call my roommate all kinds of name to get him to keep up. They usually put it away in an hour. Man, my roommate would get sick on that like clockwork. Simply nasty. The worst was when he crawled up into his bed - we had a loft in our dorm - and he got sick and it splattered all over the room from the seven foot drop. Needless to say, I stayed away from our dorm that weekend.
