Nose: mild. Candy-ish, with some alcohol. Slightly leafy (dry leaves).

Taste: quite smooth, light-bodied but with a silky delivery. Honey, then the tingling bite of hard rye flavour, Canadian-style. Not a lot going on but the elements come together nicely.

Finish: crisp, dry, somewhat tannic.

Balance: I had a bottle of this a few years ago and found it bland and spirity, one of the worst Canadians. The bottle I'm drinking from now is quite a bit more pleasant and drinkable. Not much on the nose but the silky arrival and spicy follow-up go over well. In many ways, the embodiment of your standard Canadian mixing whisky.
