Brown-Forman Beverages released Canadian Mist Black Diamond, a line extension of Canadian Mist Whisky. The richer, more robust expression of Canadian Mist was created by Canadian Mist Master Blender Steve Hughes. Canadian Mist Black Diamond is 86 proof and has a higher sherry and rye content to give it a more enhanced flavor and deliver a smooth profile, the company says. The whisky is distilled in Collingwood, Ontario, and will launch in late August in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan and Texas with more markets to follow in early 2011. Canadian Mist Black Diamond has a suggested retail price of $14.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
