Warm steady fast arrival fruit/herbal middle develops a well balanced long slow powerful finish.

I first discovered forty creek before I discovered whisky connosr and this review was done with the sixth bottle in my cabinet. I strongly recommend this as a great whisky for anyone and anytime. :)

Forty Creek Barrel Select doesn't get a lot of respect, even from the Canadians. I like my bottle of it better than I like a lot of the more well-loved Canadian whiskies, such as (my sister's bottle of)Forty Creek Confederation Oak. There was some thick sulphur in Barrel Select a couple of years ago, but I guess that recent batches have gotten past that defect.

@Victor thanks for your thoughts. I agree Forty Creek is one of my favorite whiskeys. I remember that there was some sulphur in the past but it is really doing well these days. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed this whiskey but never reviewed it until now. :)
