Well, the Red Label taste test did not go so well. After trying it a few times, it was so nasty I just dumped the rest out and recycled the glass bottle.
Black Label is the next step up. It is the best selling of the line-up and has had many positive reviews. Not wanting to waste money on a whole bottle, I ordered a Black Label on the rocks at this strange bar.
Well, though it's got the general taste and flavor of the Red Label, it was much smoother and easier to go down. It's not milder per se, but the nasty edge was definitely gone. I tried Chivas on the rocks recently for the first time. I liked the Chivas better, but the Black Label is definitely not bad.
So onwards to the Green Label. Now where am I going to find a bar that serves it?
