Comment: I found this one growing on me. I’d like to see it at 43%.
Nose: Roasted coffee granules and toffee. Slightly botanical spirit and oily dried fruit notes come through along with a light smokiness. The dried fruit has an oily Guayana-esque feel.
Palate: Quite a citrusy palate with a lovely array of oily dried fruit –apricot, banana and grape. Quite botanical on the middle. Good intensity and depth though.
Finish: Good, spicy and oily finish with the dried fruit notes lingering.
Comment: A classy Canadian.
