In keeping with the CC theme, here is their spiced variant (they also have a spiced "blueberry", which came and went pretty quick). It is named after Dock 57, which was in Windsor and was apparently where the CC went across to the US during Prohibition. Also on the label is something I've never seen before on whisky: ingredients. "Canadian whisky, water, sugar, natural flavour, spice." Hm. This is not a good sign.

The colour is medium caramel - kind of shimmery. The nose is liqueur-like: cloying, full of artificial caramel and vanilla - and no spice at all, surprisingly. Slightly rubbery. Very little complexity. Water does...nothing.

The palate is a little better, but not much. Extremely sweet, some pepper - and that's it. There is nothing else going on here. Water does...nothing.

The finish is warming but is both a little rough and syrupy, at the same time. This is pretty terrible, worse than the Wiser's Spiced - at least that one had some rye to it. Although it is called "natural flavour" on the ingredient list, nothing about this tastes natural. My Lord, I can only imagine how bad the Blueberry Spiced Whisky is. Avoid at all costs.

Thank you @michaelschout! Hearing that makes the destruction of my tastebuds worth it.

Correction: I mention above that the other CC Spiced Whisky is Blueberry. It's actually Blackberry. As if you care.
