A group of friends and I had our first Whiskey night this past weekend. We each bought a bottle (4 total) and did a blind tasting of each bottle. This bottle was one of the competitors, which makes this review based on a blind tasting.

Nose: Right off the bat, the Forty Creek Barrel Select offered a very pleasant vanilla. I also smelled a bit of medicine, but it wasn't bad. This was really nice!

Palate: Light oak taste, with some syrup and caramel. This was so disappointing because of the nose's promise. Still, it wasn't bad and was very drinkable.

Finish: The finish was on the shorter side, but not too short. Pretty smooth with a caramel coming through.

Overall not a bad whiskey for everyday drinking. When I found out what this was and that it costs on $20, I thought immediately that this is going to replace Crown Royal as my Canadian whiskey of choice.
