    Blind sample.

    My guess was an old grain - Compass Box Hedonism.

    If you like old grains, then you shan’t be disappointed. It’s quite enjoyable, crushable even. I am not the biggest grain lover, but it’s good for what it is.

    Loads of vanilla, maple syrup, pennies and tin. Nice balance. My guess was 45 abv, so it drinks better than 40%. A good old syrupy grain.

    Nose: Lots of vanilla. Very clean. Ice cream. Crème Catalan. Quite a lot if sweet wood boxes and icing sugar. Hints of butterscotch. As Creamy as they come.

    Palate: Starts sweet with that rich vanilla and that lovely creaminess the nose possesses , then getting spicy with lots of white pepper and Clove. Then back to sweet milk chocolate, and citrus bitterness , stopping short of grapefruit , then off to woodier realms with a touch of heavily toasted coffee beans.

    Finish: Wood. Bitter grapefruit. Dry spicy wood. Pepper. Pith.

    A magnificent whiskey. Creamy, sweet, with the right balance of sugar, wood and fruit. Exceptional.One of the best Canadian whiskies I’ve tried to date.
