    A really unique and enjoyable Canadian whsiky.

      Vanilla. Wood spice. Quite fruity. Juicy red grapefruit. Plums. Apricots. Orange peel. Slight hint of nutty sherry. 
    • Taste
      Light wood. Rye spice bouquet. Citrus, oranges and grapefruit. A really nice wave of rich wood on the swallow. 
    • Finish
      Medium. Bitter wood and rye spices with a wave of dark fruits and citrus coming and going.

    Nose: Starts with acetone , spices , leather and vanilla ice cream. Herbs with nice sweet edge to it. Nice rye spiciness with hint of sherry. Fruity (dark fruit) and very intense and perfumed. This is massive stuff.

    Palate: Lovely rye notes. Spicy and cinnamon-y. Rather creamy with vanilla ice cream , but also masculine. Getting bitter with some grapefruit and orange peel and hints of Cherries and prunes. Mouth-watering, and full bodied, with a nice oomph factor at 45%. I like!

    Finish: Dark fruit. Bitter grapefruit. Rye spices. Longish.

    This is an excellent whiskey, no doubt. It’s powerful, masive, mouth coating, with a lot of strong flavours, while being very enjoyable to drink straight. Rye goodness, with another dimension of fruit and sweetness in addition to the spiciness one can expect from a Rye. They sure know how to make whiskey in Canada. I am looking forward to the other samples in my “to do” list.
