Yes. I think this a little aggressive, but in a good way if you like flavorful whiskey.

Only had it a couple times though since they removed the age statement. It was still good then.

I just had the barrel proof last weekend. Man that was good stuff and you could never tell it was 135 proof.

The first bottle I was given of the barrel proof was a top 5 for me. I think it was a 2015 or so. Just opened one from last year and while good, wasn't knock your socks off.

I fortunately stocked up on the 12 year a while back. Haven't tried the NAS version.

The 18yo single barrel is amazing. The regular stuff is just ok for me.

This has ruined me for cheap whiskey.

My dad left some Canadian Mist last Christmas. I just tried to have some. Ugh.

CM is pretty bad but whatever you do, never drink Ten High.

There are still a few good ones under 20. 4 roses and Evan Williams are two decent ones.

I've been drinking Henry McKenna lately. Couldn't tell you if it's good or not, but does the trick for Manhattans.

I remember CM being smooth, unremarkable. Effective.
