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.
