What Richard Says:
Nose: Heavy maple syrup. Cliche given it’s Canadian I know but it’s oozing with the stuff. Stewed cherries and creamy vanilla sweetness.
Palate: Lots of creamy vanilla here too. Less maple syrup and more butterscotch. Lightly woody.
Finish: Pepper, oak, and dry rye spice.
Comments: This is almost enough to change my religion on Canadian whiskey. 😉 Seriously though, this is a great dram. The nose and palate are fantastic. The finish is a little bitter and tannic but that just makes me want to keep more on my palate.
Rating: Must Try
