Sampled in a Glencairn glass without water.
Colour: Pale to medium amber. Good legs down the glass.
Nose: Starts very subdued and subtle but then comes a very pleasant fruity smell, possibly raisins.
Taste: Very smooth, silky feel with the raisins coming through and a hint of liquorice.
Finish: Not very long but satisfying with the slight liquorice taste lingering. There's quite a sting in the tail for a 40% dram but very pleasant and warming.
All in all a very enjoyable dram. I have been informed that this whisky is no longer in production and therefore very rare. I feel very fortunate to have been able to sample some, even if it was in miniture format. I have also been told that full size bottles are as rare as rocking horse sh*t so getting hold of one is almost impossible and probably therefore beyond my pocket. This is a great shame as this is a dram I would greatly enjoy drinking on a regular basis. I did return to the shop where I found it and cleared the shelf of the remaining miniture bottles (two). Let's hope they manage to get some more.
I'll just have to try to find another whisk(e)y Canadian or otherwise which tastes similar, it's a tough job but someone has to do it. Cheers.
