"The 1945 Canadian Club please"


N: Caramel-y quite like the Lochside WB and predominantly grain based [most likely], yet light - well it is only a 6yo. This has a [light] creamy note - sweet & sour with dry ice-cream, quince,... and plum jelly. All very light.


T: A bit shaky/rough but i’m interested in the quirkiness that comes through - quirky as in a [1940’s] profile unfamiliar to today's [2016] blended style. The spirit speaks of a rawness of youth but followed by a softening aspect. This now softened young spirit shows notes of lime candy=ice poles [popsicles] with a candle wax-ish mouthfeel.


F: More of that sweet<sour. Ends with a condensed milk powder with a mild-green sour note.


C: Very soft and light, grain led, blended, 6yo whisk[e]y but a 1940’s 6yo. Sociologically speaking, think of the horrors still unfolding and unravelling in Europe in 1945. Then in another pocket of the world in Canada, this whisky was produced, bottled in the early 1950's [when Bevan ceased to be health minister], and then laid down only to appear around seven decades later available to drink in a bar in Dornoch, Scoltand in 2016. Aah, the wonderful world of whisky.




Scores a C-



Let's try another old blend but one with more age WB.
