    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 aroma is focused on vanilla and dark wood which continues on the palate. The bitterness and sweetness see-saw back and forth but in the end, bitter wins the battle. You are left with barrel spices and more vanilla along with a fair amount of oiliness, hence the suggestion of enjoying with a cola."
