We’re stepping in to the Way Back Machine on today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table for a taste of the classic and ubiquitous Southern Comfort which we haven’t tried in 20+ years. To be honest, because we haven’t had this in decades, we didn’t really know all that much about Southern Comfort when we went in to this tasting, so before you hit the play button on our review, here’s a bit of info about this beverage taken directly from the Southern Comfort website:
Southern Comfort was created in 1874, by a man born to do things his own way. M.W. Heron wondered, why does whiskey have to be so harsh and overpowering? Why can’t it be smooth, easygoing, downright delicious? His recipe, blending stone fruits and spices, created an iconic American taste.
Nearly 150 years later, Southern Comfort is as one-of-a-kind as ever. Satisfying on its own. Delicious in any mixed drink. No other spirit is so comfortable however you drink it. Or whoever you drink it with.
To be honest, our memories of Southern Comfort are quite fuzzy, so trying this libation during one of our epic whisky tastings was pretty much like trying it for the first time. Click the play button on the following video to hear all about it:
