Canadian Club Reserve 9 Year
Canadian Club // Canada
Canadian Club got its name due to its popularity at gentleman's clubs and where it was termed as the "Club Whisky". Referring, of course, to the member's only private clubs for the upper middle class popularized in the late 19th century and not that OTHER kind of establishment for men. The Reserve 9 year spends its time aging in used American oak barrels and emphasizes rye in this blend.
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.

"The nose is a bit harsh on your nose, seeming higher than 80 proof. The whisky starts off sweet on your palate. It is not particularly complex; rye and vanilla are here and maybe some coconut, but not much else. The finish is less slick than the standard 1858 bottling tingling the gums and throat. Best to drink as a mixed drink. "
