SEAGRAMS 83 - and all Canadian Whiskey

by Gary
(Canada)

This not to get a free bottle of whiskey BUT to contact a great website that is willing to listen to a story that started over 30 years ago.


A small house in Edmonton, Alberta that my parents owned and on a Friday or Saturday night my dad and I would play pool on a small 4 by 8 table.

I drank another brand of whiskey, but my DAD would always ask for an " 83" I knew that it was SEAGRAMS 83.

This was in 1978, after High school that I would learn to appreiciate the taste of SEAGRAMS 83.

Crown Royal is a very good whiskey, but has a harse taste going down, not smooth.

Now take Tangle Ridge has a smooth great taste, no burn going down, BUT only if you drink it out of the freezer.

Wiser's Delux another fine whiskey to drink, but bitter and has to be cold with a pop bevereged behind it.

Now I will say SEAGRAMS 83 is perfect for a drink with a small amount of ice and just a dash of water.

I have changed many a good friend to drink this whiskey.

Just keep up the good work and of keeping us CANADIANS going.

I started drinking SEAGRAMS 83 in 1977. DAD who knows when, he's 80 years old, and still loves his SEAGRAMS 83!!! A man that KNOWS WHISKEY.

Canadian Whiskey - still great.

Born and raised on 83. There are a lot of good whiskeys out there, but 83 is my favourite. 83 brings the best out of me.

Mrs. Seagram's soothing syrup cannot be found anywhere except in duty free on the border.
Very sad...

83

83 is my favorite Canadian whiskey. Smooth going down.

I have not found a place to buy it in the states. We have to get it at the Duty Free when crossing the border. My whole family occasionally "Makes a run for the Border" when in need of some 83.

I prefer it straight out of the shot-glass or with a splash of sweet vermouth for an excellent Manhattan.
