    Yes, That's the name. Even the liquor store that is having the tasting apologized for the name.

    I thanked him.

    Re: Popularity of Flavored Whiskeys

    I agree with someone earlier who said that Red Stag was the worst thing they'd ever drank. i tried it at a Whiskey tasting, and almost spit it out. Also, one of my friends was RAVING about Crown Royal Maple. I thought I should be poring it over pancakes it was so sweet....
    The only one I've tried that I even half-way liked was maker's Mark Mint Julep. It, spurprisingly, was not half bad IMHO
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    Either that or it's a great case of "know your target demographic"...

    I almost bought a mini of that JD Honey, just to taste it, but for $3.00! I'll pass.

    Reg Stag was on sale last weekend and I bought a bottle to give it try. Mixed it with coke and it was a decent drink, a lot better than EW cherry. I may get another bottle when it goes on sale again.

    Of course you could always just mix some JB with cherry Coke and get the same flavor.

    Just sayin'.

    I will say the new beam honey is not bad. Bourbon on nose and finish. Sweet honey in the middle.

    Line priced with Beam 4 year. This one has legs and will do well at that price point.

    I could but I already keep my bar stocked with coke and a few other mixers for myself and guests. It is easier to find room for another 750 on the shelf than to try and squeeze a 12 pack of cherry coke in the fridge.

    Re: Popularity of Flavored Whiskeys

    Here's our review of the new Jim Beam Maple

    If you don't want to click through here's our conclusion:

    While we enjoyed Crown Royal Maple, one of the major complaints we heard from readers is that it’s just too thick and sweet. Jim Beam Maple is a touch less sweet and does a better job balancing the sweet maple with the oak spice. One of the best things about Jim Beam Maple is that it does allow the base Jim Beam Whiskey to shine through. Our only real gripe about Jim Beam Maple is how long the maple aftertaste sticks around long after the spirit has finished. Perhaps at a slightly higher proof this wouldn’t be the case. - See more at: http://www.drinkspirits.com/whiskey/....8DAfjGr1.dpuf
