I just expect it to be bland for some reason but shouldn't judge until I've sampled some.
    Yeah, I probably need to give the Canadian Whiskey's another go I guess. My brother brought me a bottle of Canadian Club Classic 12 yr a few years back and it was very bland. I've always just thought of Canadian Whiskey as a mixer. I'm sure some of the premium stuff is decent. I will definitely look for the Alberta Premium while up in MTL.

    Just checked the SAQ website and looks like the Regie doesn't carry any of it. No surprise.

    Ain't that always the way.

    They will all seem bland next to bourbon and Scotch, IMO. You'll learn to appreciate it for its subtlety, or not at all.
