Drunk neat.

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.
