This whisky is produced at Hiram Walker distillery, as part of Sazerac's portfolio. It is clearly designed for mixing, and includes an easy pourer in the bottle. Originally it was produced in Toronto, but now in Windsor.
On the nose, it has some sharp rye with plums and some molasses notes. It's a bit harsh, and bitter at times. Fairly sweet on the palate, with brown sugar, prunes, raisins, dates with a medium body. Lightly sweet on the finish, maintaining fruitiness with some almond notes. Overall it's simple, and not that complex. The sweetness helps out on the harshness, but this isn't much of a sipping whisky - but it's ok.
