Canadian Club Green delivers a great whisky for a very reasonable price. Nose has hints of spice, cinnamon, fruit, rye, sweetness. Dry, spicy finish. This was tested blind against Basil Hayden and JP Wiser 2018 and was the clear winner. Usually drink CC Green with ice and I didn’t recognize it. This is a go to for an everyday easy drinking whisky. Extra stars for value.
I’ve never seen a 100% rye, so I just had to grab this. While this is Canadian Club, blended, and likely not that old, $18 for a 750 seemed reasonable, and could help me explore the flavors of rye more.
Look: Canadian Club 100% rye is a nice amber colored, with golden yellow on the edges, showing in the light.
Nose: I get a lot of ethanol, some slight wheat note, mild spice, little bit of oak. Not much to speak of, but this is also a 40% alcohol. Disappointing to say the least.
Palate: The flavor is much better. Big time rye bread, some slight oaky notes, almost maple. The rye bread is really what sticks out. Not a lot of cinnamon or pepper until you let the rye sit on your tongue.
Finish: The finish is nice and sweet, the rye bread again is what I get, not really a vanilla or brown sugar I’d get from a bourbon. Some slight bitterness in the finish, but pretty mild in length.
Overall: For 18 dollars, this is pretty good. I’d say upping the proof would be helpful, but I’m not sure that’s a realistic proposal for a CC product. If you’ve ever wondered what flavors and aroma rye gives off in a bourbon or mixed grain spirit, take a look at Canadian Club 100% rye.
