From punchdrunk: ‘Born in 1945, Mellow Corn remains a relatively obscure Kentucky whiskey. It is not a bourbon. It is not a rye. It’s a corn whiskey, but not a whole lot like the other corn whiskeys that have flooded the market in recent years. Those spirits are by and large moonshine—or unaged raw spirit. By contrast, Mellow Corn is aged four years. It’s also bottled in bond, clocking in at 100-proof—something few whiskeys can boast these days.’
