So how does one start with such a hyped-up whisky?
Aged in charred oak casks, then decanted and recasked for four years, the rye has become as delicate as a flower. The oak is ever present but never over powering. For whiskies in general and doubly so for Canadien Whiskies, this is incredibly well-balanced with absolutely none of the cheap candied sweetness that most have.
As I nose this, the soft rye notes take me to the Albertian Prairie. The freshness is like a summer day. I can smell the oak ever so softly with a hint of wild flowers nearby.
The body is light with a smooth entrance. The palete is smooth rye, floral, and oak with a medium to long finish with notes of toffee and dark chocolate. An occasional whiff of lemon bar as it leaves the mouth.
Really, a lovely way to end the day after a long road trip.
