The Best Whiskies in the World, Awards Special
Forty Creek Barrel Reserve
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 7 A gentle dram. Soft and rich. Soothes your worries away.
Forty Creek Barrel Select
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 8 The richest-tasting Canadian whisky I have tasted. Wins points for luxury.
Forty Creek Confederation Oak Reserve
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 4 Stylish. Though the oak has a big say, the spirit is holding its own well.
Forty Creek Evolution
Blended - Canada - 43.00% 7 It feels like a moderately aged grain whisky which has succumbed to the oak.
Forty Creek Heart Of Gold
Blended - Canada - 43.00% 8 I loved this for the subtle and delicious flavours. Masterly
Forty Creek John K Hall Double Barrel
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 6 Not working for me.
Forty Creek John K Hall Small Batch Reserve
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 7 Interesting nose but the palate does not quite fulfil the expectations. Oak speaks too loud at times.
Forty Creek John's Private Cask
Single Grain - U.S.A. - 40.00% 7 Interesting contrast between nose and palate.
Forty Creek Three Grain
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 7 In palate, the closer of the two to the Canadian tradition. Wins points for that attribute. I could drink quite a few of these.
