    Mellow Corn

    Interesting whisky I tried with my wife.  She didnt like it too much, it packs a bit of a punch at 50% abv, but I found it OK.  If it hadn't been listed in the "the good book"  (or 101WTTBYD) then to be honest I doubt I would have ever tried it.    The nose has some caramel and fruit (maybe banana) and some playdough and the fresh paint note I often get with corn based whiskies and bourbon.  The taste and mouth feel is quite smooth at first then builds to a peppery spicy finish.  Behind the spice some notes of tinned sweet corn and even vanilla. I dont know what market this is aimed at and how you are supposed to drink it.   Sip it?  Mix it?   Drink it around the camp fire in the woods out of a jam jar with some hillbillies?  I guess the later, and it would be good for that.... warming, pretty smooth and at 50% gets the job done.
