    Well, this is only one step up from Canadian Club, which I think of as
    bottom shelf. So shall we call this middle shelf? Entry level, no matter how
    you look at it. But not bad as an aperitif. Thanks to my Canadian buddy
    Jean-Francois for the sample.
    • Nose
      The nose is soft and inviting, lightly perfumed. It shows a lot of
      vanilla, but mostly apricots and something hearty like puff paste. Hint of
      cloves and mild oak.
    • Taste
      It is very light on the palate and extremely sweet. Again loads of
      vanilla, but the apricots are now overcome by honey and nuts. Almonds, I would
      say. Very soft, though. Light body.
    • Finish
      The finish is short and clean, slightly warming.
