This is the Canadian version of the standard bottling - I believe the US "Canadian Club" is a bit different. Intriguing whisky - a bit earthy, dank, spicy, and floral on both the nose and the palate, with some interesting vegetal notes on the nose (celery and green bell pepper) good tingly spice and heat on the palate, and some errant bitterness at points. The finish is surprisingly tannic, with the spices still starring until it lightens up and cleanses the mouth.
To be honest, when I sat down to taste this, I was suprised at how enjoyable it was. I had tasted casually and in bars and cocktails, but my tasting sessions were very intriguing. However, the whisky is a bit out of balance at times and a bit messy - a bit more cacophonous than I prefer. The spice, and the earthiness, however, are fantastic.
