Which is better? SoCO is 100 proof to the CR 80 proof. I like Soco right now,anyone else?

Both mix well with coke.

Soco is a MUCH better value.

Doesn't crown royal cost like 2.5x as much as soco?

Thats why I bought SoCo tonite and it works fine for me. But there is the matter of Crown Reserve, how much better is that stuff. Is it worth it?

SoCo is also available in 76 proof. Crown Royal Special Reserve is MUCH better IMO. It does cost more, though. It is DEFINITELY worth it.

Yeah but,....100 proof > 76 proof ,does the taste and quality really make up for it? And you are talking to an alchol...hemm... drinker who is fickle with such matters. I want quality and bang for MY buck.

I agree. If I want a solid bourbon I'd go Maker's Mark, Jim Beam, Jack Daniels or 101 proof Wild Turkey. (I know Jack is technically Tennessee Whiskey and not Bourbon).


On the other hand, I find all of those spiced Canadian Whiskeys to be swill. To me it tastes like drinking a spiced tea spiked with alcohol. I prefer my whiskey pure and not spiced.

If that's what you want, go with 101 proof Wild Turkey. the 86 proof Wild Turkey isn't very good, but the 101 tastes great and has a great kick.

We use to drink southern comforter when we were teenagers, mix it with an Icee. Now I found it tastes damn good with a whole lime squeezed in it....

We've actually been drinking SoCo 100 proof with cherry coke the past week. Tasty for me & with a kick for Mike.

I MUCH prefer Canadian whiskey to bourbon or Tenn. whiskey. It's just smoother to me. I prefer smooth. Doesn't hurt that I learned to drink with Crown & coke back in the olden days. ;)

There is only one choice:

I may have to give it a shot. I am currently enjoying a bottle of Woodford Reserve. I have only tried the "Old Forrester Birthday Reserve" and Woodford Reserve so far and I rate Woodford way above Old Forrester. I hear good things about Buffalo trace as well.

hmm. where did the OP mention BOURBON, the question was crown vs SoCo.. big DIFF.
bourbon should be reserved for another discussion.
that being said, if'n i'm wanting to drink, I enjoy a good crown... if'n i'm wanting to get screwed up.. soco it is.. for some reason it hits me harder than anything else.. even everclear. gotta be something in it, i'm sensitive to.

Yeah this isn't not a Bourbon thread since neither Soco or Crown are Bourbons.

To me this isn't even close. SoCo is what you drink when you just want to get hammered and want to do it for cheap. Crown is in another league in my opinion. While it doesn't have the proof content of SoCo it is much smoother and has a much better taste and trust me it is way better the next day, if you know what I am saying.

This is a skewed comparison in my opinion. It is like comparing a Lincoln or Cadillac to a ford taurus or a chevy caviler. Just doesn't seem right. Now if you wanted to compare Crown to Canadian Club or Seagream's 7 that would be O.k. Or if you wanted to compare SoCo to like Wild Turkey or some other cheap liquer that is fine. But IMO they are just in two different leagues.

I would take Crown any day, but I am a Bourbon man myself. And there is nothing better than a nice bottle of Basil Hayden's of Maker's Mark!!!!
