great Canadian whisky, blended only after each grain mash aged seperately. Unique method.

People reject Canadian because it is relatively delicate. This is true. IF you blew all your tastebuds on smakes and french fries, it will be too light for you.

On the other hand, if you really like whisky you need to try this one. It may change your mind from "Scotch or nothing."

Yes, something different can provide a vacation away from scotch now and then. I sometimes enjoy a delicate Canadian Club Sherry Cask ... but don't compare it scotch ... different class all together. @drbooze, glad you reviewed the Forty Creek ... might try it.

Agree about the sherry cask. Also check out Cask 16 from Crown Royal... finished in Sauternes casks.

Canadian to Scotch is like white to red wine. much different, and maybe not comparable. If you're a red wine hound (and most people are) then white is declasse. But that's not true. it's just a matter of preference.
