Got this as a Christmas gift from my father in law. I appreciate the sentiment but I wound up pouring most of this out. He did give me some Evan Williams in the same gift which made up for it.
Price: $12 for 750ml
Distilled / Owned By: Black Velvet/ Constellation Brands
Aged For: Minimum 2 Years
Chill Filtered: Yes
Color Added: Undisclosed
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Color: Food coloring brown
Nose: Way to much ethanol, rye eventually comes through with some oak
Taste: Smooth to the namesake, but very bland. Bits of carmel and rye but not nearly enough.
Finish: Bites the tongue hard and then disappears quickly.
Overall: It was gift and I gave it a fair shot I feel, but I’m not a fan.
Score: 45 out of 100
