Released exclusively in Canada during the spring of 2017, this vintage marks the oldest Canadian whisky ever bottled. The whisky opens with pronounced notes of vanilla and butterscotch sweetness, followed by elements of candied citrus zest, cotton candy, and dried tropical fruit.
Canadian Club Chronicles 42 Year Old Whiskey Tasting Notes
Nose: Beautiful fresh lemon citrus, vanilla, oak, and hints of dark leather.
Palate: Nice warm caramel, melting over tongue with buttery goodness, quickly followed by rapidly building oak spice. The finish is long and beautiful, complete with these gorgeous caramel touches that are complimented with plenty of peppery spice.
Finish: A creamy spicy-sweet finish
The Canadian Club Canadian whisky brand, owned by spirits giant Beam-Suntory, has been producing whisky in Canada for almost 160 years, making it something of a historical icon there. One imagines there is a lot of older whisky stock sitting around in their warehouses, much like one might see at older Scottish distilleries. Those there are now tapping some of the oldest they have available for bottling, unveiling a very limited edition 41 year old expression.
