Nose: creamy, with pronounced caramel and butterscotch. A touch of wet stone/slate. Typical Canadian, but richer and smoother than your standard fare.

Taste: medium-bodied and supple on the tongue. Vanilla and caramel at first, and then some nice oak carrying with it a bit of warming spice.

Finish: somewhat bitter.

Balance: definitely a step up from the bottom-shelfers at the LCBO. The bittersweet CC profile is bolstered by longer aging, though unfortunately the finish is a little off. It is okay taken neat, but it really shines in a rye and ginger. Just enough flavour to stand out, without trying to steal the show.
