My first introduction to Canadian Club was the standard expression. I found it to be rather sweet. Cooling my heels for a few years I spotted the lovely decanter styled bottle of the 12 year and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did.

Colour like red tea with honey.

Nose – Oak, honey, maple syrup, caramel, vanilla.

Taste – Rye, caramel, dry ginger, toffee.

Finish – Medium to short, the rye pushes through and gives way to maple syrup and spice.

This goes down easy. I suggest it to someone new to whisk(e)y for it's easy and palatable approach.

@Frost - Nice find with the old style decanter; the new bottles are all business. Glad to know that CC 12 YO is to your liking. You have in your cabinet one of my favourite Canadians of all time, Canadian Club 20 YO.

@paddockjudge thanks for the feedback.

Are you saying the decanter style is gone over there? It seems to be still the general retail bottling here. I will keep an eye on this and ensure I restock in case of a bottle change, it's such a charming design.

Yes I enjoy the C.C. 20yr very much. I should also ad, I don't think I've found such an economical 20 year old whisk(e)y before.

@paddockjudge that is where I bought it. The stopper is not glass unfortunately.
