  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    My favorite from this distillery during a tasting session on site. It's no surprise that this bottle went back home with me!

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This Forty Creek is the other way around. The nose is okayish, but the
    palate is very good. It even wond the Canadian Whiskey of the Year Award in 2010
    and 2012. With thanks to my Canadian friend Jean-Francois for the sample.
    • Nose
      The nose is not quite as sweet as anticipated. It is even somewhat meaty
      from smoked ham and tart as lime juice. Then some tobacco, vanilla and caramel,
      but rather soft. Very malty and not as hot as you would expect from a rye
      whiskey. A lot of buttercups and hints of a drying fire. Dry.
    • Taste
      It is mouth coating, but not creamy. The sweetness of the vanilla soon
      turns sourish like gooseberries. Quite some pepper. Breakfast cereals. Lightly
      smoke from the oak. Wood shavings. Barbecue Sauce! You know, the kind you use
      to cover your ribs in before putting them on the grill. This is pretty good.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, light on the spices and drying from the
      casks.
