"The history of Canadian Club is steeped into this elegantly layered whisky. Its close-knit flavor profile develops from a nose of buttery vanilla, almond and brown sugar through creamy sweet maple tones and rich stone fruits. These flavors and textures transition onto the palate with a crisp dry oak supporting the sweetness with grace. Rye spices and ginger develop on the roof of the mouth through the classiest of finishes."
