CanadianDISTILLED IN CANADA AND AGED IN BARRELS FOR AT LEAST THREE YEARS; OFTEN (BUT NOT ALWAYS) CANADIAN WHISKIES ARE BLENDS OF CORN, BARLEY, AND RYE WHISKIES WHICH WERE DISTILLED AND MATURED SEPARATELY. TRADITIONALLY, CANADIAN WHISKEY IS CALLED “RYE”, ALTHOUGH NO MINIMUM PERCENTAGE OF RYE-GRAIN WHISKY IS REQUIRED IN A BLEND.
"An expressive nose rich with toasted malt is balanced by nuances like caramel, black pepper, brown sugar and corn with Canadian Club signature dark fruits. Slightly floral. Ripe apples on the palate are accented with cinnamon and bitter fruit skins working together with the whisky’s beautiful malty character. The finish is long with fresh grass, spiced oatmeal and a pop of barley sugar. A fitting addition to this iconic brand in its 160th year."
