We have Prohibition to thank for Canadian whisky being so popular in the U.S. After Prohibition ended, the Canadians who had been supplying the nation during those dark times had sufficient supply while U.S. distilleries had been closed. Seagram's in particular had a large supply to offer. The VO was created to celebrate owner Joseph Seagram's son, Thomas, upon his wedding.

    DISTILLED 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.

Tasting Notes

"The nose seemed rather closed and took tasting a couple of times to muster some lemon and cinnamon out. Grain flavors are minimal and while the whisky is inoffensive, it is simple and finishes on a white rum note."
