I don't know if it's just me but Southern Comfort always seems to taste much better in either the imagination or memory. I always have fond memories of drinking it and always get that 'Mmmmm nice warm glow feeling' when I see a bottle but on the odd occasion where I've actually bought a bottle the experience never matches the expectations. Too sweet and cloying aftertaste.
SoCo is disgusting. HufPost says:
"Southern Comfort is made from 100-percent grain-neutral spirit base (basically vodka), fruit, spices and at times the recipe has included a little bourbon. We spoke to Charles K. Cowdery, who worked at Southern Comfort back in the day, and he said that the recipe at least used to be "grain neutral spirit, sugar, and a fruit concentrate in which the dominant fruit is apricot.""
