is Black Velvet a suitable whiskey+coke spirit?

I'm curious if anyone tried this whiskey with a coke or other mixer.  I usually use Crown Royal or Jack Daniels for "Jack n Cokes" but tempted to try out a bottle of Black Velvet as a cheaper alternative.  As a point of reference I tried Canadian Mist before and thought it didnt go well at all with coke.

My recollection, from my college drinking days, was BV and Coke was a bad combo. 

 

Give me plain ole Jack and Coke, or Gentleman Jack / Single Barrel Jack on ice or chilled.

 

There is almost always a bottle of Jack in my fridge.

Any whiskey that requires coke or some other mixer to make it drinkable should be reserved for bad company or the inlaws. I learned real young that adding coke to whiskey didn't hide the fact the whiskey was crap. It was worth paying a little more to get a hood bottle that could be drank neat or with a little ice. I personally find rye a bit too sweet and prefer a good bourbon or single malt scotch.

I recently tested a bottle of Evan Williams and found it to be just as good as Jack mixed with coke and my favorite combo... cream soda.  I understand to truly appreciate whisky it should be sipped straight or on the rocks but I'm still trying to acquire the taste before I can really enjoy that.
