  1. AnnEm scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A balanced, set corn whiskey with a really appealing and, despite its age, not excessive American oak character, set fruit and sweet liquorice / aniseed spice notes. In some places it also has the typical Bourbon markers "cherry" and "spearmint chewing gum", but these notes are very well integrated and never become too superficial or one-sided.

      Warm, freshly sawn, clean wood. The oak is concise after 34 years, but by no means too dominant, so that I do not perceive the whiskey as "woody" and I would certainly never have blindly given it that age. I find it nice and grainy, with lots of crispy toasted toast. So now I ask myself whether I would have unknowingly recognized him as Corn? Ah, whatever. Whole grain butter biscuit appears. Dark, rather tart cherry fruit. Dried apricots. Banana jam. Sweet and spicy aniseed fennel licorice candies. Nana mint. Toffee. Nicely seated and relaxed.

      Viscous and velvety appearance. The alcohol is palpable, but it looks good on him. Sun-warm, lightly polished wood with caramel-like impressions and sweet lactritz-fennel spice. Citrus fruit impressions, I think of lime including zest. On top of that also raw cane sugar. For me bourbon-typical: cherry, but in a set, very natural and subtle variant. Dried jackfruit gives it a slight tropical touch.

      Round and harmonious. Very clean white oak notes. Mild and delicately spicy liquid honey (I just have a pine honey open, it goes that way). Spearmint gum will also come through over time. With chocolate brownies. Not extremely deep or long, but lively, harmonious and also tasty.

    Canadian are often a little "refined", I think this is not this Cadenhead, the corn exudes age and maturity and can be compared in the best sense with a nice old Scottish single grain whiskey. Probably there shouldn't be too much difference in terms of production and maturation. A pleasant drop and one of the clearly better Canadian that I have been able to drink so far.
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, glue, coconut, wood, nougat, bitter almond, smells like a good old single grain and shouldn't tend to be anything else. The 60% don't bite their noses a bit. With water there are first a few musty, chemical notes before it grooves itself back into the beautiful, sweet notes after a short period of time.
    • Taste
      quite warm, coconut, vanilla and sweetness remain. Water is good for him, it becomes a little more accessible, but also a little more complex, tart, more oak, spices, no longer just for the sweet aromas, suddenly also a bit rough, but looks good on it.
    • Finish
      bitter-sweet, pleasant, vanilla, a little wood. Here, too, water tends to bring out the woody, tart, spicy side more. Add a little glue and grain.
