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 most attractive nose in the world, but has a certain charm.

Taste: medium-bodied with a good spicy kick right off the bat, which thickens as it spreads across the tongue. All told, a smooth and pleasant experience.

Finish: no real surprises here. Fades on pepper notes with a bit of musty wood.

Balance: at this price point you can't expect to get blown away, but this is at least a new take on a traditional Canadian whisky. Doesn't make any bold statements and shouldn't scare off fans of regular CC, it at least offers something a little different at a reasonable price.
