I'm here laddies and ladies.

Anyone coming out to join in?

Oh yes, isn't it Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend?

I've one to try. I thought I would also go back to the blend and visit a couple of blends too.

Pouring Canadian Club Sherry Cask 8 yo...gurgle, gurgle, gurgle.

CC Sherry Cask 8 yo, 41.3%

Large brandy glass
Color: reddish amber
Nose: cinnamon sticks (for cooking), maple syrup, raw rye grain, wood glue
Palate: sweet sherry, cinnamon powder, Aunt Jemima Syrup, raw split oak
Finish: long, cinnamon syrup

This is an interesting little bugger. Most Canadian whiskies I've tried have been on the spirity side. I think the 8 years and some time in a sherry cask has added some character it.

I notice that you didn't mention alcohol, spirity, or estery. Sounds actually pretty good based on your notes.
