Vanilla and oak nose, with a creamy layer of mint that warns you: Rye Ahead. And what a sweet rye wave it is, rolling in with green mint and grass, more bourbony oak and vanilla, lively spice on the top (with enough heat to keep it bold), and a finish that brings everything together. Beautifully integrated, and not overly woody, a tribute to the blending art of Canadian distillers.

Blended from the last remaining whiskies from the LaSalle Distillery in Quebec. Lovely caramel and vanilla nose; incredibly smooth and rich with gorgeous, creamy texture and beautiful sweet, luscious flavors; very opulent, harmonious and mellow; long, supple and balanced; impressive.
