This 39-month-old whisky was influenced by one of Canada’s most renowned spirits: Canadian Rye. Head distiller Garret Haynes’ aim was not to improve the Canadian classic, but to make something distinct.
Nose: Herbal spicy notes, caramel, vanilla, and brown sugar followed by a hint of cinnamon.
Palette: The initial spicy note is quickly replaced by creamy caramels and vanilla. The earthy, herbal spicy note returns with a chalk candy sweetness.
Finish: The rye spice and barrel notes give a dry finish while the warming alcohol and candy sweetness continues to linger, creating interesting and opposing impressions across the palate.
