I’ve been sitting on this review for a while going back to our Gateway Series of reviews. I was waiting to see if Matt would try this one too but he’s on vacation so I’m going to publish it anyway.
In all seriousness, it was a post on Chuck Cowdery’s Blog about American Blended Whiskey that reminded of this old review so here it goes…
Seagram’s 7 Crown American Whiskey
40% ABV/80 Proof
$10 to $15
What the Distillery Says:
I actually couldn’t find anything.
What Richard Says:
Nose: Honey and ripe fruit. Oranges and nuts. Not an altogether unpleasant nose.
Palate: Candied rubber? Very antiseptic and spicy. Not something to drink neat.
Finish: Very hot and rough finish. Not smooth in the least.
Comments: Okay, Seagram’s isn’t exactly suggesting this be drunk straight like a fine bourbon. It’s a cheap mixer and tastes as such. It’s a very odd bastard child of something bourbon-like and something Canadian.
Rating: I’ll Pass (so bad that I’m adding another rating to our system)
What Matt Says:
Matt has not had a chance to review this whiskey yet.
