Review by Forty Creek

Colour

The colour of old gold with huge whisky tears

Nose

Constantly evolving aromas and flavours; beginning with maple-raisin-vanilla-fig, evolving with layers of praline, banana, butter cream, honeyed nuts, and orange blossoms. Lingers with dried dark fruits and anise

Palate

Full bodied with vanilla, butter cream, pepper spice and framed with oak, walnut, and smoke

Finish

A long lingering finish with fading spice and white pepper

Note

A celebration of both Canada’s 1867 Confederation, and Canadian ingenuity. This whisky is finished for up to 2 years in new Canadian Oak barrels, which have a tighter grain due to Canada’s colder climate, and impart a truly Canadian flavour profile.
