Whisky Reviews for Canadian Club 1929

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This whiskey is surprisingly powerful, all the more because the alcohol percentage is expected to be 43% to 45%. He convinces through his fruitiness and spiciness. There is no trace of bitterness. The final judgment is a thick 87 points, and certainly 88 points if the atmosphere could influence the score.
    • Nose
      A beautiful nose that almost reminds you of a well-ripened bourbon. It is very fruity, spicy, and has a generous portion of waxy notes. A difference is that there are also beautiful notes of flowers. The nose evokes the following associations: furniture and (to a lesser extent) old leather in the wax, honey, peach in syrup, apricot, orange peel, violets, and finally vanilla. A nice nose with power, especially for a whiskey that was bottled 88 years ago.
    • Taste
      The feeling in the mouth is oily. What is striking is that the taste is slightly rougher than on the nose. I like it personally, especially because the raw edge does not take away the fruitiness. In addition, a beautiful spiciness can be detected. The associations: a workshop with different lubricants, wax and perhaps something of shoe polish. In addition, rye-like notes of juniper, resin, cinnamon and honey. In addition, the fruitiness of dried apricot and peaches, and a light creamy vanilla custard.
    • Finish
      The taste stays reasonably long. This is extra nice, because with old whiskeys the taste disappears like a thief in the night. In the aftertaste there is place for spiciness of cinnamon and clove, another light honey test, and especially still dried yellow fruit.

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A glorious Canadian Club from the era when George V was ruling the British Empire (see the label)! Still very fresh and lively for such an old whiskey. Cross tasting with Seagram's Pedigree Straight Bourbon Whiskey which was bottled in the same year. Tasted together with St. Pauli.
    • Nose
      Classic Canadian nose with lots of fresh pencil shavings, dried coconut and cedar wood. Some flowery notes. Dried peach and waxed furniture as well. Crushed fresh hazelnuts. Honey and vanilla at the background. Later on more on old leather and cigar boxes.
    • Taste
      Sweet molasses and toffee with a nice creaminess. Gingerbread and butterscotch. Also custard powder. Touch of citrus fruit and peel zest, but in very gentle way. Followed by strawberries. Quite complex. Could be a high quality bourbon.
    • Finish
      Medium long. A little nutmeg. Cinnamon. Pine at the end. Perfectly balanced.
