This Canadian whisky’s base is double-distilled corn whisky aged for at least 15 years in a combination of brand new white oak casks, once used American bourbon casks and used Canadian whisky casks. The second component is column-distilled rye aged for at least 15 years. It’s bottled at 40% and currently only available in Canada.

Tasting Notes

"Dr. Don Livermore has become a master of taking a classic Canadian whisky flavor profile and putting it up against a modern backdrop. Caramel, toffee, and banana bread with spicy oak notes are pulled into the nose accented by maple sugars. The caramel and toffee flavors quickly shifts to a mid-palate chest warming clove rye spice with a peppery snap. Pleasantly bitter fruit rinds are fresh on the finish."
