Canadian Club Classic 12 Year Old Blended Canadian Whisky (700ml)
'From patience comes perfection' - this is the philosophy behind the production of Canadian Club Classic. Unlike any other whisky, being characteristically light, mild and delicate, Canadian Club Classic owes its clean taste and distinctive character to the fact that it is blended before maturation in white American oak barrels for a minimum of twelve years. The blend is founded on a triple distilled base spirit which is then married with two 'flavouring spirits' - one double distilled, the other single distilled.
Tasting note: Deep burnished copper colour. Moderate aromas fall in the dessert spectrum - creme caramel, vanilla slice, plus a touch of cinnamon and clove followed by a silky, creamy delivery with semi-sweet flavours of vanilla, short bread, dilute golden syrup and toffee in the aftertaste. A plush, gently warming Canadian with low key rye. 40% Alc./Vol.Other reviews... Pale golden amber color. Sweet, perfumed buttered caramel corn and spice aromas. A supple entry leads to a soft medium-bodied palate with rummy spice, medicinal herbs, and toffee notes. Finishes with a peppery, spicy rye fade. 84 points (Recommended) - www.tastings.com Nose: Drier, pruney, slightly medicinal. Palate: Rounded. Tightly interlocked flavours. Finish:Milk chocolate. Sweet. By far the biggest finish in this group of Canadian Clubs. Comment: That medicinal touch gives this whisky an appetising edge.

...The bouquet features deep notes of butterscotch, nougat, almond paste and light vanilla. The palate entry offers succulent flavors of almond paste, candy and oaky vanilla; the midpalate is woody, caramel-like, with hints of dried yellow fruit, white pepper and spice. Finishes balanced, sweet and oaky. 90-95 points - www.wineenthusiast.com
