  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Distilled at Canadian Mist Distillery in Collingwood, Ontario. Owned by Brown-Forman since 1971 to secure its supply of Canadian whiskey to the U.S. market. Collingwood contains a higher proportion of older rye whiskey than is used in the Canadian Mist expression. But there is another twist as well. Once the whiskey is matured and blended, it is held in marrying vats for almost a year with toasted Maplewood barrel staves floating on the surface of the tank.
    • Nose
      Very expressive nose for Canadian whiskey. Lots of flowery notes of roses and violets. Glace cherries and strawberries as well. Honey and some cakemix. Later on more sweet pipe tobacco.
    • Taste
      Mouthfeel is creamy with velvet tannins. Lots of butterscotch and maple syrup. Molasses. Also toasted chestnuts. Marzipan sweetness at the background.
    • Finish
      Thee deep rich fruitiness, quite unique for Canadian whiskey, remains quite long. Cinnamon and a little nutmeg. A bit perfumy.

    Tasting Notes Spicy aroma, with hints of caramel,
    raisins and vanilla. Notes of rye, roasted nuts and complex oak on the
    palate, which are complemented by a subtle hint of honey sweetness.
    Finish is lingering and soft, with notes of citrus.
