While browsing the Internet I've come across a lot of misinformation on Canadian whisky. Misinformation on the Internet, who would of thought! Anyway, throughout the month of June I will be reviewing twelve, maybe more, Canadian whiskies. I've decided that for my own information I would taste each of these brands and compare them to each other and some "standards" like Jameson and Jack Daniels. I like Jameson, but hate JD, so this was not an easy task.
Hopefully this will give some direction to people interested in this whisky category and clear up a few things about Canadian whisky. If that doesn't interest you, the tasting of JD might amuse you.
The whiskies on the docket include:
Crown Royal Special Reserve
Forty Creek Barrel Select
Alberta Premium 100% Rye
Danfield’s Private Reserve
Tangle Ridge Rye
Gibson Finest 12
Canadian Club 12
Walker’s Special Old
