Wow - I was very surprised when I sampled this sweet but powerful whisky - amber colour, good legs and a solid body. Sweet aroma of oak, toffee, apple and, strangely, baked bread. Taste was much of the above but very peppery - a little water brought out a buttery quality. Warm vanilla finish - kind of like drinking a cake but in a really good way!

I have to admit that this is one that I was not able to 'get', despite three separate tastings (both with and without water) from a very generous sample from @victor several months ago. While I did find it to have a much nicer finish and balance than the some of the standard Canadian mixers (CC Classic 12 yo, is my base reference in this regard), I seemed to miss the positive intensity of flavours that most reviews note.

I have read elsewhere (likely on this site) where some have found that it took a half bottle or more for the profile to open up. I would strongly suspect that I can put myself in that category.
