The Seagram's brand has a long history in the whisky market. Seagram’s VO is a very common whisky in North America and many bartenders use it on their rails, since it is the whisky included in the "Diageo rail". The initials “VO” meaning is not well documented but could mean either “very old” or “very own”.
Pale gold in colour. Subtle sweet nose with a little bit of alcohol harshness.Very smooth start. Not too much flavour, except some subtle grains, slight sweetness and a bit of oak. There is a bit of charred oak in the finish. Smooth with no real bite. Nothing exceptional going on here. The finish is fairly short with a very subtle bitterness in the back of the throat. Not bad, but not worth contemplating beside a fireplace.
