"At first smell, you may think this is rum instead of whiskey as there's an intense aroma of brown sugar. The American soldiers in Vietnam had it right to want to drown this spirit in 7-Up to make it palatable. This created a demand stateside for the now infamous 7 & 7 highball which was one of the more popular drinks during the dark ages of the American cocktail (1967-1988)."
