This whisky is distilled from 95% Ontario corn and 5% Canadian malted barley. Again, this is from a single cask (so I guess the corn and malt were together in the mashbill? Or were they distilled separately and then married in oak?) but there is no cask number. This is only available in Still Waters' Discovery Pack (along with their single malt and their rye).
The colour is a cloudy pale gold, a hair darker than the rye. On the nose it's roasted corn-on-the-cob all the way, with some butter and a light dusting of cumin. That's pretty much it, except maybe a bit of wood smoke (which is accentuated by water). So it's pretty one-note, but it's a nice note.
On the palate there's a bit of heat, and a light toasted cornbread quality, but otherwise it has very little real flavour. Water adds some oiliness, but this is as light as you can get, almost to the point of vanishing altogether.
The finish is fairly short and nondescript, with a slight hint of oak and buttered toast. Not much to say here, it is the lightest corn whisky you can find (and can't compare at all to the Cadenhead's bottlings of aged Potters). This needs far more time in the cask; hopefully Barry & Barry have a few tucked away somewhere to bottle in about 20 years time. But right now there is really not much there at all.
