No detailed tasting notes today, I am sorry... we were just enjoying the experiences and sharing our first impressions. I will go back to this and delve deeper once I’ve had more time with it.
Initially, aromas of sherry wine and cognac were dominant, with flavourful corn whisky throughout.
Given time, the corn came more to the nose and rye spice along with the cognac’s French oak spice revealed themselves on the palate.
As more time passed, those rye notes started to present themselves to the nose while the wine notes receded, and the flavour started to become more full bodied.
After more than an hour the whisky really started to reveal itself, presenting a little oak, but not nearly so much as one mag expect for a spirit that has spent so long inside a barrel.
Bought this with very high expectations, after hearing how many people loved the C.C. 40 last year. Unfortunately, I was met with a whisky that did not live up to the expectations I had for it. The whisky I tried tasted like watered down, extremely weak, Canadian whisky (Though I acknowledge that there may have been something off about the bottle I received.)
In my opinion, it's worth maybe $40 CAD, not $300. I'd recommend C.C. Chairman's Select 100% rye instead.
