Black Velvet nose is butterscotch and maple syrup with hint of citrus and oak The entry is butterscotch and hint of maple syrup. The finish is dry citrus and oak with hint of maple syrup.Black Velvet has been consistent with quality from year to year. It is not too sweet or too bland.

The only drink I'd make with this is a Ditch which is whiskey and water. The water cuts the burn. Bottom shelf but not rotgut.

For the price it's smooth enough and works well as a mixer, but I wouldn't recommend drinking on it's own

I've always enjoyed BV as a mixer. It is almost as if it was made specifically with mixing with a cola in mind. Not recommended neat or on the rocks, but hard to ask more of it at this price.

I'd give a 3.5 rating. Nothing great, but nothing to be ashamed of. Best sipped on the rocks or ice-cold.

Once tasted this years ago. Wasn't good at all. Very light and alcoholy. More like vodka than whiskey.

Typically found on the bottom shelf, which is where it belongs. I thought it had a rather "burnt" flavor to it and an aftertaste that wouldn't go away. Fine if you're looking to get hammered on the cheap, but I'd otherwise avoid it.
