Show rating data charts
Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Vanilla and raisins.
Taste: Starts cool and is fairly liquid, not as syrupy as other Canadians I have tasted. Sweet at first (maple syrup-like) but becomes more fruity and slightly spicy as it warms.
Finish: Rye spiciness comes out at first, then gradually fades to leave a sweet aftertaste in the mouth.
Balance: Fairly sweet but well balanced with fruits and spices. It's rather subdued, nothing jumps out. It's a good introduction and it's just complex enough to be interesting.
Will I buy it again? No, not with the Copper Pot Reserve at nearly the same price point and so much more powerful.
