Southern Comfort Bold Black Cherry reviewThe cherry flavor has made it’s way traveling through the veins of many whiskeys and bourbons where it didn’t always belong.

More often that not flavored whiskeys don’t typically appeal to us at .

We review them for what they are as they stand alone AND what they can bring to cocktails.

Now, here enters a good one which is done right:  The new Southern Comfort Bold Black Cherry.

It brings just nough cherry to give a rounded and “cherriful” flavor without killing it the flavor that SoCo lovers across the globe have come to love.

At 70 proof, the finish has a nice bang of heat which drinks closer to 82 proof and we recommend it to Southern Comfort fans!

SoCo Bold Black Cherry follows the recent release of the new SoCo Fiery Pepper which we enjoyed reviewing here.


So how do we recommend SoCo Bold Black Cherry? It makes one mean Manhattan Cocktail (see recipe below).

Here’s a group photo of the complete collection dressed in their new bottles for a new generation of SoCo sippers!
