    Simple but surprisingly pleasant on the nose; caramel, vanilla, creamed corn. Palate: one dimensional, corn sweetness. Medium finish of wood and leather. Not nearly as harsh as I was expecting. For the price certainly not bad. Will easily finish the bottle but also, for the price, I’d choose Evan Williams black every time.

    At first I thought people suggesting this one as a joke because of the price and the look of it, but then I realized they were completely serious. The nose has corn (duh) and some light leather notes and freshly baked bread with a slight ethanol burn. The palate is sweet with corn and nice leather and some oak with a few baking spices. The finish is on the shorter side of medium. Alright, this one is great. I can’t believe for $16 you get a bottled in bond (at least 4yrs old) whiskey that is actually good for sipping.

    Decent. I’ll give it that but it’s nothing close to what you can get for a few $’s more.

    This whiskey is aged in a used, charred barrel to mimic how bourbon got started. Moonshiners discovered that charring the inside of the barrel brought the sugars in the wood to the inside edge of the barrel. It would take 9 months to go down from Kentucky to new orleans. Through that trip, they discovered that a little bit of aging aided the whiskey a lot :) Nose: buttered, sweet corn. Similar to a kettle corn. Alcohol is also very present on the nose. Taste: fiery, slightly sweet. No tannins, really. This is because it's in a used, charred barrel. Pretty thin, not very viscous. Finish: mostly picked up corn and alcohol.

    Purchased at a Maryland Liquor store that was preying on the ignorant and/or desperate, selling anything remotely rare for over 10x retail. Stagg Jr. for $599.99. Weller Special Reserve 750ml bottles for $399.99!! So egregious, I feel compelled to call them out with specificity: Tri State Liquors 96 Souder Rd, Brunswick, MD 21716 (301) 834-4448. The Mellow Corn was slightly overpriced at $16.99, but not terribly so, and I had never seen it in a store before, and had heard generally good things. So I swallowed the pill and gave these jerks my cash. I do hate myself a bit, on principle. 750ml pour neat into Glencairn at home. Nose is definitely corn, as to be expected, with a little heat and dry grass. Fairly mild. Taste has more corn, definite heat, with the grass from the nose now watered. Not exactly mellow, but certainly drinkable. This is a one-note affair, but interesting and cheap enough to put on the home shelf. 9/7/19.
