So I would like to be corrected, so I am looking for suggestions of Canadian Whiskey's that taste great stand alone.
One I have not tried, and not sure I will as the last time I checked pricing on Glen Breton, it was prohibitive in the sense that the price was so much so that I could get a good very well regarded Scotch, and is money I would rather not spend on a bit of a gamble.
My top 2 recommendations, though, would be:
Crown Royal Cask No. 16... Just an incredibly stylish Canadian that oozes class. The Cognac cask finishing lends a nice touch of crispness and liveliness. As I've stated previously, "A cracker."
Wiser's Legacy Pot Still Rye... This one garnered the Canadian Market segment prize in the 2010 Canadian Whisky Awards, and is a real star as far as I'm concerned. Rich, round and with just the right dose of rye bittersweetness and oakiness to keep the palate presentation exciting.
Close on the heels of these two are the 18-year olds from Gibson and Wiser's - each very satisfying in its own way.
One I'd suggest you look for is Canadian Club Sherry Cask. It takes CC in a different direction, and is very drinkable on its own. You might also try to track down Gibson's 18 if you can...
It comes in a very attractive wide bottom flute bottle and is priced modestly at $29CAN /750ml
The bottle says Rye Whisky, however most write ups and discussions agree that this offering is a high percentage of corn and barley malt. If suspicions are correct this was acquired by Highwood distillery when they bought out Potters and the casks may be very old and one of a kind so pick it up while it lasts.
