Radiantly-hued nectar with a nod to the tantalizingsilky texture provided by the barrel. The rye grain cuts through the wood flavors making its spicy presence known without risking the creamy vanilla custard smoothness. The finish is oak with an orangey tang.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Dark honey in the glass, this whisky boasts maple and cedar aromas in the bouquet. Expect lots of spice on the palate, including clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne and black pepper, all smoothed over by a ribbon of maple and honey. It finishes big, round, buttery and mouthwatering. - K.N.
OTH 93 points - Those of you who think Canadian whiskies are thin and bland should give this one a try. No, it’s not a new concept, like Forty Creek. It’s still very much a “traditional” Canadian. But when compared to most Canadian whiskies, it’s richer, creamier, and velvety smooth. The flavors are straightforward - primarily vanilla, with some creme brulee, toasted marshmallow, tangerine, peaches and cream, and gentle rye spice - but they are clean and well-balanced. A delicious, lighter-style whisky.

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (Tried & True Award)- Fresh roasted coffee, baked green apple, apricot, and cinnamon on the nose. On the palate it is mellow and sweet with more apricot and brown sugar, redolent of cobbler. Clean and concise finish. (Apr 1/20)
