Battle of the Canadian Club's

I finally tried the Classic 12. usually when I am out I drink the reserve (10yrs). This stuff was very good. I just wonder what one you like better.

I actually like the blue labelled CC.. Reserve? The Black labelled 12 yr is perfectly drinkable, but the blue has a bit more flavour for mixing.

Tried all of the Canadian Clubs and since the best of them, which is the 15yo and the rest of 'em are only fodder for mix, usually coke, makes it a waste to buy anything but the cheep stuff.
You have to keep in mind that most Canadian ryes are blended to have some extra bite to accomodate mixers.
With Canadian Club there is not much difference between the standard and the 15yo, it's all swill or bar-rye quality.
Gibson's silver label is smoother than the CC 15!
I met a girl in Vegas that just couln't get enough of my Canadian club, but that's another story. :wink: (x-rated)

I'm actually quite fond of the 100 proof edition, but I'm with Lord Pfaffin on Gibson's. They make some smooth whisky.

The fact that, the referrence, using Canadian Club and Jim Beam in a classic pun with sexual overtones comes from a "Blues Brothers" album recorded by John Balushi and Dan Akroid would ellude most twelve year olds.
That would make you, eleven? :wink: Right? :lol:

Good to know we have the same taste in music...I have that song on my iPod! ;) The Blues Brothers actually did a cover version of "I Don't Know", which was originally recorded by Willie Mabon back in the old days of Chess Records...(I love blues music about as much as I like whisky!)

Okay. I grudgingly accept the phallic innuendo as a cultural reference. A low one, but a cultural reference nonetheless.

Here are the exact lyrics we're referring to...

"You gonna walk a mile for a Camel, or you gonna make like Mister Chesterfield and satisfy?
She said...depends on what you're packin', regular or king size...
And then she pulled out my Jim Beam...
And to her surprise...
It was every bit as hard as my Canadian Club..."

Of course, if these lines were in a rap album today...it'd have a warning label on the CD cover (and lawyers for Jim Beam and Canadian Club threatening trademark infringement).

Hell, who needs to be 12 years old?

Over here, we have a cheap blend called Fighting Cock.

I guess innuendo is too big a word for most Australians! :D

Well, the Blues Brothers song would be classified as a parody of a blues lyric, and parody enjoys special protection in the US under the first amendment, as interpreted by the Supreme Court.
