Canadian Whisky Reviews

> Gooderhams Centennial 15yo

Dark fruits, wet slate, sweet spices and assertive pepper. Sweet, crisp and slightly pulling. Great complexity and tightly balanced. Fruity, silky, long and clean. ★★★★★

> Wiser’s Dissertation – Thesis in a Bottle

Maple syrup, vanilla, oak, marzipan, suggestions of red fruits and floral rye notes. Luxurious creamy mouthfeel and developing hot peppery spices. Complex and beautifully balanced. ★★★★★

> Lohin McKinnon 43%

Malty with cereal notes, mild honey, tree fruits, gentle spices and a creamy mouthfeel. ★★★☆

> Crown Royal Cornerstone Blend 40.3%

Spicy, sweet, fruity and floral. Rye spices, rye grain and fresh-cut cedar. The fruity notes turn tropical with mango, papaya and bananas. Chocolate tones that linger just below the surface fade slowly away.
