Tasting Notes

"Canadian whisky and maple syrup seem like a natural pairing, so it's not surprising to find the two combined in one bottle. But how does it taste? As a whiskey, it's pretty one-note. There's lots of maple, obviously, and a little vanilla and oak. It's also very sweet, and there's not much rye spice to balance that out. But despite its lack of complexity, it is easy to like and doesn't come across as cloying or artificial. It will appeal to those who like to sip on sweeter spirits, and seems ready made for cocktails where it could be enlivened with bitters or citrus juice."
