Member Ratings and Notes

Light gold color. Very clean flavors of toasted oak, maple syrup, brown sugar. A little musty. Initially a bitter sweet burst on my tongue with vanilla and sugar. Very rich. Over time this whisky has grown on me, so I think a little bit of oxygen does it well. I tasted Lot 1867-B. B+/A-. [3/13/2013, retaste 7/7/13]

Nose:  Sweet and peppery, cola 

Palate:  Sweet with vanilla, a touch soapy, floral with honey 

Finish:  Somewhat spicy with those floral and honey notes 

This is what I think of as very typical Canadian Whisky.  It's fine but not anything I'd reach for.
