Review from MikeK (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 564, Created:20060807152915) View discussion on this review.
Purchased at:Near Lawrenceburg KY
Purchased for:$9.15
Nose:Primarily corn and corn oil. Lesser fragrances of fruit, licorice and circus peanuts.
Taste:Very sweet and fruity with a solid flavor and body. Pronounced corn flavor with an oily mouth feel. A little bitey with a tingle not unlike a carbonated soda. A slight hint of root beer.
Finish:Short corn flavored finish. Sweet fading to slightly bitter.
Overall:Corn whiskey is a separate branch on the whiskey tree and your education is not complete until youve experienced it. If youre expecting raw spirit with a thin veneer of civility, youre not even close, and youll be pleasantly surprised. This is a delightful drink; light, sweet, and flavorful. Corn flavor and oiliness are always in abundance, partnered with sweetness and fruit. Not common even in KY, this is worth seeking out.

Weird footnote: The first pour from this bottle had a strong resemblance to Old Grandad 114, both in nose and flavor. By the second glass this had faded to a minor undercurrent with the expected corn fruitiness taking over.

Review from Mike (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 169)
Purchased at:Sigman Bottle Shop, Conyers, GA
Purchased for:Not much
Nose:Buttered corn, sugar, smells warm
Taste:Smooth sweetness, never guess that it is 100 proof because it is more like an 80 proof taste. Not a lot of complexity
Finish:A sweet residual taste that is not distinctive to me, a bit bland.
Overall:I was expecting to like this whiskey, and even wanted to! And, it is not bad, just doesn't offer much satisfaction. To me, it seems a poor cousin to bourbon. It lacks complexity, depth, and character. There is no challenge here. I don't know what to do with the rest of the bottle. I am tempted to have my wife put it in her pound cake, or put it on popcorn. I know some people really like this stuff, and I wish I could give them the rest of this bottle. Maybe on another day??

Purchased at:Liquor Outlet in Shively
Info on this bottle:Standard bottle from liqor store
Proof Of this Bottle:100
Nose:Rich corn, silks, husk and in all other forms.
Taste:Sweet rich corn with a hint of vanilla with a little fire in the back of the throat to remind you this is whiskey.
Finish:Long and pleasant with a corn sweetnes and a hint of oak.
Overall:This is my favorite corn whiskey and the more I try it, the more I begin to think this is my favorite Heaven Hill product. It is that good.
