    Nose: a gentle intermingling of butterscotch and vanilla, along with damp wood. Deeper down I find a leafy/earthy note. With time, hints of orange or lemon zest emerge. Quite mellow yet complex enough… read more

    Nose: fairly typical of Canadian whisky with butter toffee and wet stone aromas. But then there is an added peppery note, hinting at black pepper, in addition to a rum-like banana fruitiness. Not the… read more

  • Canadian Club Classic 12 Year old - Smooth and light- maybe too light

    Appearance: Darker than my usual choice of Bourbons- a dark Baltic amber hue. Nose: Very, very light nose- all vanilla and cocoa. Some of that slight earthy-yet-acidic feeling of a lightly brewed fresh… read more

  • Canadian Club Chairman's Select 100% Rye - Battle of the Ryes: US vs. Canada 2

    The Canuck rye going head-to-head with Bulleit is the new Canadian Club. It is called "Chairman's Select" but I have no idea who this mystery Chairman is, nor if he is qualified to select anything. Unlike… read more

    This whisky, though it is Canadian Club, is not actually distilled at the Hiram Walker plant in Windsor (like the rest of the Canadian Club line) – it is actually distilled and bottled in Alberta, from… read more

  • Canadian Club 100% RYE - Call Me Dusty

    A brilliant offering from Canadian Club. This one is a game changer, an extremely smooth and mature 100% single grain rye expression - sweet yet not cloying. Dry and smooth and dusty. Hints of maple sugar… read more

  • Canadian Club Classic Aged 12 Years (bott. 1974) - 12 Minis! - Part IV

    Here's a real treat - a mini of Canadian Club Classic 12 Year Old from 1974! I love the old Canadian whiskies - they tend to be more rye forward, with more complexity and less overt caramel. I've tasted… read more

  • Canadian Club 20 Year Old - Remind anyone else of a rum?

    This whisky is a "limited" release, which really means that it is produced in batches as it is a pretty regular offering from CC. It's the same recipe as the standard "Canadian Club", but it is just in… read more

    This whisky comes in at 41.3%, a bit higher than the standard Canadian 40%. It is aged about 6 years, then finished for 2 years in Spanish Sherry Casks. As with all Canadian Club whiskies, it is "Barrel… read more

    This whisky, at times, seems to be quite hit and miss. Some people really seem to like it, and some don't seem to care for it much at all. Recently rebranded to try to give more information and attract… read more
