Show rating data charts
Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: dry and crisp, with a slightly pungent note lurking in the background. Spicy, earthy, a bit of sweetness (vanilla and brown sugar). Subtle yet complex.
Taste: medium-bodied, with the spicy kick of rye as it spreads across the tongue. There is a tangy bite to it, almost vegetal. A different style of Canadian whisky.
Finish: bittersweet, medium length.
Balance: an interesting whisky which seems to show heavier rye character than Barrel Select. Perhaps the absence of sherry wood allows the grains to speak louder. Not my favourite expression from this distillery, especially for the price.
