Whisky Reviews for J.J. Corry The Battalion CGW

- The Battalion is named in honour of the Battalion San Patricos, (Saint Patrick’s Battalion) a group of Irish men who fought for Mexico in the Mexican/American War of 1846-1848.
- Unpleasant, young, rude, completely mediocre grain whiskey, which reminded me very much of vodka. Unfortunately, the idea with a cure in tequila and mezcal barrels is just a marketing ploy. JJ Corry, The Battalion - whiskey level of the most primitive cheap blend. Digging into it, disassembling it into components, makes no sense.
The virtuoso aroma strongly resembles the simplest, cheapest blended whiskey. In the foreground, yeast, stale bread, plastic and cardboard are felt. If you sniff, you can still distinguish a citrus note, but very deeply. Poorly!
Primitive sweetness, gray stale bread, a little salt, a drop of lemon juice, a taste of paper and something that is remotely reminiscent of tequila.
Short, sharp, repeating flavor palette. There is also a specific, slightly brackish echo, vaguely reminiscent of tequila and mezcal. In the end, the taste of vodka remains in the mouth.
