The Bottom Shelf: Fleischmann's Whiskey

The Bottom Shelf With Russ: Fleischmann's Whiskey

Greetings from The Bottom Shelf with Russ, where I will be reviewing all things bottom shelf.

First up: cheap whiskeys found on the bottom shelf at Meijer(ten brands in all).  With ten months of research behind this, I will be judging each whiskey one at a time.

Fleischmann's WhiskeyCheapest of the cheap was Fleischmann's Whiskey. This whiskey exemplifies "you get what you pay for".

Using a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being barely drinkable and 5 as good as it gets, this is my humble opinion.

Taste: A solid 1 - This is a wrenching gut grabber.

Cost: 4 -  If they gave it away free it would be a 5.

Packaging: 5 Yes, it actually comes in a glass bottle. This is a very good thing, because it would eat through a plastic container!

Effects:  3 - Good enough I think for the money.

Mix-ability:  Dominates what ever you mix it with. Caution: Never drink Fleischmans straight!!!

Final comments: Suitable as a house warming gift to a bum who has just got a new refrigerator box for a home.

Next time: THE Northern Lights.

Later from Bottom Shelf Russ.
