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.

Your full length whisky blog reviews are so much nicer,...but I guess that reproducing the text is a lot of work. No doubt you wish more attention for your blog.

well...it's easier actually to just cut and paste - condensing can be a lot of work! I don't mind the attention for my blog; but I'd just as rather have people learn and be informed about whisky. Perhaps I'll put a bit more text in the upcoming reviews...
