    Caribou Crossing Canadian put out by BT

    I must say, if BT puts out something, I'll take notice.
    I'm looking forward to trying this one. I'd like to know the age statement though.

    Re: Caribou Crossing Canadian put out by BT

    Very interesting...I'm wondering if it stays true to Canada's blending techniques. It might have a range of different ages, some of which could be quite elderly. I think it would definitely be worth the effort to find a bottle and give it a try. I'll look for the tasting notes.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    I haven't had this but I have had a few high end Canadians and it's still Canadian whiskey.

    Sounds like faint praise to me Chuck. But if someone buys me a taste, I'll try it.

    Took another look at it this morning and noticed the wax drips. As soon as the Makers Mark lawyers see that, there's gonna be trouble.

    Well, since it's from BT, and since I was weaned on Canadian whiskeys before I made the move to bourbon, I just might have to try a bottle. Joe

    My wife has the taste for a canadian now and again. I have a bottle of forty creek hiding in the cabinet, perhaps I will have to add one of these as well...?

    I wonder if this brand is being bottled in Frankfort? Most top shelf Canadian is bottled in Canada. Most of the cheaper brands are tankered in bulk to the US and bottled here!

    Re: Caribou Crossing Canadian put out by BT

    I asked my local retailer if he could look into CC for me.
    He called and left a message that he had some in so I
    took a trip to the store today. He was only able to get
    three bottles and after his distributor let him have a taste,
    he put one aside for himself. So, I brought home the other
    two (less than $50. each.)

    The packaging is pretty impressive. First you have a
    box with a hologram like effect which bring to mind the
    Northern Lights. Very "sparkley".

    The bottle is in a royal blue velvet bag similar to Crown
    Royal. It looks very nice with etched designs on two sides.
    Someone mentioned Maker's Mark with regards to the wax -
    to me it looks like a blue version of the Blanton's (with
    two little "rip cords") but it removes easily. The Maple Leaf
    stopper has a nice heft to it. The bottle has a "flared" lip
    (like RHF) which makes pouring a bit tricky but that could
    be just me.

    I guess you could boil it down to a Rock Hill Farms bottle
    with a Blanton's stopper covered in MM (or Blanton's) drips
    all inside a CR velvet bag. Certainly no innovative design
    but the whisky itself is rather tasty and I would probably
    pick up another bottle or two to sip during summer evenings
    or for friends that find my JD SB too "harsh".
