Top reviews for Mellow Corn:
— Full stars based on the price and the quality of the poor. You want a 100 proof $20.00 whiskey; this is the one to get. I have given many bottles away as gifts, and people are shocked at the quality of the bottle's value.
— You can usually find this for under $15 and worth every penny. BIB product and fine whiskey indeed. Great for sippin or mixing. This should have a spot in every home bar.

Member Reviews and Ratings of Mellow Corn
It is sweet and a bit sharp but for the price, it is not offensive at all. Good quality for the price but it is generally 1-2 notes. I do get a candy corn type of taste from it. I like it but it is not something I would buy again for sipping.

It's so aggressive, but once I adjusted my expectations I could sip it fine, maybe a touch of cool water. Unsurprisingly well suited to an Old Fashioned given the balancing act of the sugar and the 100 proof booze. Probably not buying again but glad I gave it a shot.
I gotta say, I so like it. I like corn whiskeys and simply love Balcone's blue corns.
This is a basic corn whiskey for a bare bones price. The nose; "hot" corn. The initial taste; "spicy" corn. The aftertaste; corn. There is no surprise here and little 'complexity' beyond the complexity for corn itself.
But if you like corn as a vegetable, this is a fine bottle. It's not fancy, it's not deep, but don't be a snob and just have fun with it.
I get a little bit of caramel sweetness on the nose, but not a lot in tasting. Definitely has a burn along with the corn and buttery/oily mouthfeel. Not something I would regularly sip but I appreciate the uniqueness of this and the fact the Heaven Hill is still family owned.
Great in your go-to cocktails if you want to change them up a bit. Try in a paper plane you wont be disappointed
GREAT party starter. wonderful alone or with your favorite mix. smooth taste with just a lil burn.

Fun to try, mixed it is fine, didn’t get much corn though.
Very smooth and heavy on the corn notes. This is usually $9-12 and one of the best bourbons for the price.
Definitely different. While certainly not terrible, this would not be a go to bottle for me.
Had to see what the talk is about. Nothing special...
Good as mixer
Great price. Didn't know this existed. I thought it was pretty straight and mellow for the % of proof. I tasted the corn right away, but no one else did that I was with. Neat, sure...with ice, yes...cocktail for sure...will have to test again for the other hidden flavors
Unique. I'll drink it, but probably won't buy more.
Great smooth taste neat or as cocktail. Will be coming back for more.
Surprisingly mellow flavor for the potency. Not too sweet, not too sour, good overall flavor.
Like the corn dust flavor to it.
Very smooth for corn. Great for party
I can’t say this is a bad whiskey...but I also am finding difficulty calling it good.
It certainly has an aroma and flavor that reminds me of caramel, vanilla, and maybe even dried fruit, and it is pretty smooth, but that’s where the good points end. There’s no complexity or depth in the aroma and flavor of the whiskey, nor does the flavor evolve much on the palate. I’ve seen people in other reviews describing a cut grass taste and I kind of sense that on the finish but for me it turns into a strangely bitter aftertaste that reminds me of grass and old corn, which makes sense for it being a corn whiskey.
It’s a one of a kind liquor for sure and has an interesting history, though if you’re not looking to get sloshed in a bittersweet corn whiskey then this is not the bottle for you.
I know, you get what you pay for, so this gets 5 stars instead of 4. I can’t really get into this, not even for an old fashioned. I’ll figure out a way to finish the bottle.
This does not come across as corn sweet, but rather creamed corn and fresh cut grass. Won’t buy again
I can smell the caramel in it, although I can't taste it. It starts out smooth and finishes with a bite. It's pretty decent for the price.
Very buttery, the "corn" aspect sticks out pretty predominately. Not like a regular whiskey, but a nice novelty.
Eye: straw yellow
Nose: astringent, banana taffy
Palate: grain, butter, corn, sugar, bee’s wax
Mouth feel: oily, viscous
Enjoying this with lime , it’s has a powerful taste and hi in alcohol content
Nice mixer , and I can drink straight, but prefer it a dry Manhattan.
Expecting much more than just having a taste like cheap charcoal filtered vodka
Great, smooth, sweet corn flavor.
Totally worth it for the price. Would buy again
The taste is fine, it is only corn whiskey aged for a minute or two, no kidding, supposedly 4 years hence the color. Don't expect anything fancy and you won't be disappointed. I think it would make a good mixer, it is sweet so you'd have to be careful what you dumped it into. Not complex, no oak, no pepperiness, just a sweet corn taste, and a nice burn, I like it on a cube or two. Costs too much on here.
This is strong. Definitely needs to be mixed with something. It is good mixed with the new
bold ginger ale that is in the store
I was curious about this whiskey because it seems to have almost a cult following online. Perhaps not because it's top shelf, more like, it's a booze drinkers meme in real life.
First, I admit I may not have the most sophisticated palate. When I hear people describe whiskey as having an essence of spring rain and unicorn farts, I tend to roll my eyes. I can count on one hand the number of spirits where I detected anything other than 'whiskey.'
That's where Mellow Corn stepped in. As I inhaled my first breath of this whiskey, I could clearly make out hints of crushed dreams and the flagging hopes of the city's local homeless camp. It tastes about how the BO of 1000 hippies stuck in a Venezuelan rain forest during Coronavirus smells.
I think this liquor would best be enjoyed out of a paper bag, in an alley behind the local gas station, shared with your friends who have as much dignity remaining as they likely do teeth.
This is Dirty Mike and the boys. You bet we love some mellow corn. Best mixed with some cheap glue in the bag and huffed behind the woods of a public library.
Best enjoyed in a parked Prius aka The Soup Kitchen.
A bit spicy, with a smooth finish and real hints of corn on the back. Really enjoy!
Ok. So if you want to have a fun, light whisky, then you can't go wrong with this little gem! If you can get past the "corny" looking bottle then you've got a sweet corn smelling, cream of corn whisky that has no bite for a 100 proof with no lasting mouthfeel the second it goes down. But that is to the drams benefit, because you'll love to keep sipping till it's all gone. There is a reason Heaven Hill has been putting it out for over 70 years, and at less than $20 I can see why! It's a steal!
Appearance: Color is straw, decent legs... Nose: Corn grain sweetness, faint vanilla, caramel and baking spices. Average... Palate: Grainy corn sweetness, baking spice, youth, but not the in-your-face bitter of poorly aged Whiskey, a little vanilla. Different, a little below average... Mouthfeel is Average... Finish: A more creamy vanilla flavor and baking spices, mild but lingers due to proof... Overall: If you go in expecting a Bourbon, you will be disappointed, but if you want a cohesive, solid example of a Corn Whiskey, this is it. Corn dominates the profile, and the barrel mostly just tempers the youth and grain.
Definitely my favorite whiskey! Got it on a whim not expecting anything special but it's much more tasty and smoother than my previous go to which was Wild Turkey 101! I just wish it was still available (HINT FLAVIAR) this stuff is hard to find! Also if you don't like a flavor punch in the face it's not for you
Kinda rough, nice departure from the bourbon I usually have. I’ll buy again!
Have to come from a “moonshine” background to appreciate the amount corn in this bottle. Not quite sure why they didn’t leave it clear.
I knew a $20 bottle of whiskey was not going to give me a TON of greatness, but even as a cola mixer, this was pretty harsh. Not just taste, but the feeling it left after it was drank. Description hyped it up real good, but it ended up being exactly what you’d expect from a cheap bottle of whiskey.
going to wait on this one for a better time to try
Wow spicy love it
Very smooth for the ABV..not the greatest nose or complexity.
Definitely mellow. Slightly spicy. Can taste the corn. Very drinkable!
Wow, it's got some kick! Will drink again
This is one of my favorite whisky. Like butter !
For the price this is a great buy! I’ll keep this in my home bar!
It's a wonderful bang for your buck if you care about it. A great option to have in your home collection that will get most people to at least say "hmm, not bad" since you can't find it everywhere.
Surprisingly decent. While it won't compare to a good scotch, it's pretty good. Go in with an open mind. For the price, it's worth it.
