  1. Gooderham & Worts Four Grain Canadian Whisky

    The G&W Four Grain has now become my favourite whisky! It’s flavours are tightly intertwined, complex and subtle. Best to let it sit in the glass for a while first. On the nose, caramel, dark fruits, sweet dusty cereals, and a hint of black pepper, and lots more too. The palate starts with the sweet caramel and opens up into a kaleidoscope of chewy and delicious flavours almost impossible to pick apart, before merging again inside spicy wood notes. Though you can sense the other grains there, they humbly submit to their role of enhancing the rye which takes the spotlight. It ends with a nice medium finish, bringing with it a bit of bitterness and some cherry, along with a hint of roast beef... wait, that was the leftovers my wife just reheated in the microwave. This creative Canadian whisky makes me proud!

    Clear dark gold in colour with medium viscosity. A full and flavourful nose, with a split second of citrus right off the bat, then in floods the honey, vanilla, along with a bit of oatmeal and maybe a touch of banana. Coming up near the end a hint of oak which somehow reminds me of antique furniture. Leather seems to be the main act on the palate, which has a medium light body and surprisingly not too sweet as the nose might imply. A clean and relatively short finish with cocoa notes and a hint of tobacco fading away and leaving me looking forward to the next sip. Complex and interesting, a surprising variety of flavours as you move through the dram. Me likey.

    Floral perfumey notes on the palate. Grassy, grainy flavours, as well as some caramel.

    Unique among 40 Creek whiskies. Stronger cereal notes. The Bourban comes through nicely from them barrels they get from down south. Very interesting and enjoyable. Edit: it’s got some breadiness to it which I love... yeast notes.

    Delish. Has that 40 Creek caramel oak, dark flavour but more complex, delicate, light and rounded, and full of lovely butter scotch flavours! Buttery smooth mouth feel too. Love it.

    I generally like rye. This one is very spicy. A bit fruity. Maybe perfumey.
