Seagram's Seven Crown

This one was a bit of shocker and considering the Seagram's VO was not bad this was a bit of a surprise to me.  The nose (probably it's best feature) has some vanilla, some oak notes and even some banana.  The taste and mouthfeel is at first light with a slight caramel and milk chocolate note, but with an almost metallic tang which is not pleasant.  Some bitter coffee notes but no real depth or richness to this.  The finish is bitter and feels longer than it probably is (like a boring car journey).   Good news... well it does get better with water, the metallic note is gone and it is a little smoother.  Go for the VO or break out the 7-UP and mix a "Seven and Seven".
