Show rating data charts
Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Quite a sweet nose, made of maple syrup and caramel, with a slight toasted oak in the background.
Taste: The arrival is very sweet, very easy to drink. Again, it's caramel and maple that comes through, with the rye appearing at the end with a little prickling of the tongue.
Finish: A nice warmth, if rather short, with some spiciness and toasted oak dryness.
Balance: It's sweet, with little to balance it. It's an easy drink, and probably a good way to introduce newcomers to whisky.
I like it, but I have to consider that, for the price in Québec ($61), you can buy a real bourbon instead of a whisky aged in a bourbon cask.
