Some of my favourite Canadian whiskies are single grain offerings. Building on that, I've taken the Top 10 Single Grain Canadian List, sans Cadenheads 24 YO Indian Corn because I don't have any in my cabinet, and blended them in the proven ratio of 2:1, corn/rye and added by volume 2.5% of single grain Canadian barley whisky from Rheault Distillery of Hearst, ON. The result is a well balanced, delicious and complex blend with a boomerang finish...it begins to disappear then suddenly comes back.
Fresh ginger, Christmas humbugs, and butter-rich short bread cookies waft from the glass. The entry is soft and juicy like creamy toffee. Mid-palate subtle oak, orange zest, and cocao powder complement the sweetness. The exit is a peppery flare with a menthol rush, but not minty. A dry finish of medium length that echoes the delicious flavours. A great way to start the week leading up to Canada Day.
One Proud Canadian!
