Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: A good rye sour fruitiness. Blackcurrant, red apple. Then comes a touch of roasted coffee beans and a distant grassy note.
Palate: Sweet, with that tangy edge you get from rye. Damson plums, hint of prune. Milk chocolate.
Finish: Medium, spicy, nicely clings to the palate.
Comment: A characterful and clean whisky, with a rich proportion of rye in the mashbill. Oak is well integrated. Would be pleasant with a pecan pie.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Melting ice cream on warm leatherette. Clean rye notes, lightly oily. Water brings oak and a light toasty quality. Red fruits, honey and hazelnut.
Palate: Drier than the nose suggests. Runny toffee with a firmness underneath. Almost Cognac like grip. Dried apricots. Well balanced.
Finish: Slightly tight and fading quickly.
Comment: Better balance between this sweet, easy-going Canadian character and some grip.
