Danfield's 21 years is the "all grown up" version of Black Velvet. Df21 is distilled and bottled at the Black Velvet facility in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. The label is owned by Independent Bottler, Williams and Church. This expression possesses all the desired characteristics of a fine Canadian sipping whisky - the nose is terrific - rye floral notes, baking spices, wet cedar and wild berries. The mouthfeel is creamy. Baking spices translate from the nose to the palate - vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar - some mild heat/black pepper followed by ginger/citrus sourness which are offset by toffee and caramel. There is a nice balance to this whisky. The finish is dry and clean and leaves you wanting one more. A very nice, easy sipping whisky. This is what I like to give as a gift for birthdays...at least there'll be one good bottle in the house.

Yes, Danfield's 21 yo is one of the best Canadian whiskies, though my bottle of it took a few months to really come together before I felt that way about it.

That's pretty amazing to me that Danfield's 21 yo is from the Black Velvet folks. Somehow that item of information had eluded me previously. That would be nice if Black Velvet tasted more like 21 yo Danfield's.

In recent H2H tastings vs Gibson's 18 Yrs, Danfield's 21 Yrs has scored higher. Three different batches of Gibson's vs one batch of Danfield's. Result: D'field's 21 shutout Gibson's 18 by a score of 3 - 0.

This one is now long gone. A blending masterpiece and one of my favourite Canadian, no, favourite whiskies. Perhaps someday the good folks at the Black Velvet Distillery in Lethbridge, Alberta will tap more of their long-aged barrels and create another stunner.

Danfield's 10 Yo and D'field's 21 YO....buttery goodness with just the right amount of oak, pepper, and and an indescribable sweetness that taunts the taste buds. They are both incredibly delicious.
