Bodacious branding for a good whisky. Another great review, thank you.

I find this to be Silk Tassel at its finest...they should have used Gold Tassel. Sazerac purchased more than 100,000 barrels from Corby/McGuiness a few years back and I suspect Caribou Crossing and Royal Canadian Small Batch come from those barrels. It sure would be nice to have some information and a bit of a back story for what is now a $96 investment...instead of a caribou tale, glossy box, Rock Hill Farms decanter, and a Blanton's style stopper with a cheesy maple leaf atop the cork.

Here's a story about Silk Tassel, and I guarantee it will never be printed on a whisky package.

Silk tassel was my 'go-to' dram in high school, probably because it was available by the 'handle'. My gang called them jugs, a half-gallon of liquid joy, that is, we did until told by a barmaid during a road trip to Buffalo, NY, "Honey, why do you call them jugs? Them tiny things ain't jugs, they're handles." as she lifted her blouse and exclaimed, "these are jugs, and you ain't never gonna handle these!"...after that we called them 'nevergonnas'.

@paddockjudge, that sounds like a much better than average high school whisky experience!

If that story WAS on the Silk Tassel label, they'd triple their sales.

@paddockjudge, the best story or anything regarding Silk Tassel.

Usually I hum and haw about picking this (CCSB) up. Thankfully it sells out quickly and I end up with no regrets.
