    Slowly been working my way through a bottle of this over a few years.

    I believe it’s alberta premium and it won some awards when it came out, which of course means nothing.

    I decided I don’t really like it. I mean, it’s fine and it’s got no glaring flaws, but not my thing.

    it’s slightly floral, very grainy, heavy vanillas, artificial caramel syrup and then there’s a little rye spice, but it comes across light with no real depth.

    Nose: Thick rye, very perfumed. Linseed. Gentle leather caramel and dry tobacco leaves. Dark tea and cumin. Vanilla too. It’s very spicy earthy and deep.

    Palate: Earthy vanilla with linseed. Grapefruit pith. Spices. Pepper. Floral too. With a hint of tobacco cinnamon and cumin.

    Finish : Dry. Grapefruit pith and spices.

    This is a nice and rather complex dram, with lovely Grapefruit notes, as well as earthy feel to it. Much more complex than I had anticipated it to be. Very nice! Jim Murray gave it 96.5 in his 2013 bible, but I know it really means nothing, like many of his questionable marks. It’s very good no doubt, yet not over 90 in my book anyways.

    Tasting Notes Floral aroma, with hints of spicy wood and
    cinnamon. Notes of roasted nuts, citrus and vanilla, which are
    complemented by a bold and spicy undertone. Finish is long and robust,
    with notes of oak and baking spices mingled with sweet undertones of
    honey, marshmallow and caramel.

  5. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The flavour profile of Masterson’s strongly favors the grain over the
    barrel. The nose, though floral, is dominated by earth and grain. The
    Masterson’s palate is broad, ranging from wet clay through roasted grain
    to gunny sacks, pepper, spice and vanilla before resolving in citric
    pith. This is a well-balanced, finely crafted rye whiskey, cast in the
    mould of the ultimate connoisseur’s straight rye – a deliciator’s stolen
    pleasure intended to be savored. Very highly recommended!

  6. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Named for Canadian-born frontier lawman, William "Bat" Masterson, one of
    the most famous Americans from the Old West: this whiskey is a tip of
    the hat to Bat Masterson - a buffalo hunter, card dealer, and lawman,
    who retired to New York where he became a prolific sportswriter and
    newspaperman. Appropriate because of the role that saloons, card games
    and whiskey played in the gun slinging days of the Wild West.
