    I have a bottle at home. Been a while since I have had any. From memory, interesting and better than most Canadian Whiskey but the whiskey itself was, IMHO, too weak to stand up to the sherry cask.

    I think it's pretty good. It's not bourbon, but it ain't too bad. Better than the standard CC at any rate.

    I just bought a bottle of this today, thinking it might be a nice, light summer sipper.

    Ho boy, this is powerful stuff, and powerful good. I don't know if they've given it an upgrade recently, but this is like drinking a Heath bar. It's almost too full-bodied for a light summer sip, but I'm sure I'll find a way to drink it anyhow.

    I had a bottle a year or so ago, and wouldn't buy a bottle again. I'm a fan of sherried scotches, so I thought I'd give it a try. The sherry really overwhelms the whiskey, for a very imbalanced result.

    I enjoyed it for precisely that reason.

    Funny how you can't even get it in Ontario. Small market here or something?

    Re: Canadian Club Sherry Cask

    It was a little too much sherry for me, too. However, it was not as over-sherried as the Tomatin 12 yr. So, if you liked this, you may want to check out the Tomatin (which is pretty cheap at $22).

    I'm a big Macallan fan, by the way. That is how it should be done.
