I recently tried a bottle of Canadian whiskey for the first time and it was awful, I can't drink it. It's called "Canadian LTD" and is very affordable.
I do drink the cheapest bourbon & Scotch and have no problems but that Canadian whiskey is just awful to me.
Does that mean Canadian whiskey isn't for me or that this one is just bad.
Canadian Club Classic 12 Year Old isn't half bad, either.
And just about anything from Forty Creek is worth a go, too.

I have tasted two whiskies both from Alberta Distillers Limited (Calgary). I tried their Alberta Premium 100% Rye Whisky 25 year old when it came out. Jim Murray was in Calgary for a tasting of it at the Kensington Wine Market. He loved it. I liked it very much and found it to be very clean, fresh and a little sweet. It sold for $30.00 CDN and sold off fairly quickly.
This past June, ADL released the Alberta Premium 100% Rye Whisky 30 year old. To me, it tasted very mild, smooth and honeyed with a bit of oil. I liked it but not as well as I liked the 25 year old. The 30 year old is about $60.00 CDN and I think they are almost sold out.
