    Re: New Forty Creek whisky

    I picked up a bottle of this today. It's not bad. Slightly sweet, and smooth.

    You're sure it's the same one? The website says Confederation Oak is not being released until September 2010.

    Oops, my mistake. I picked up the double barrel.

    Double Barrel is nice. I picked up a bottle at $14 off the regular price.

    Re: New Forty Creek whisky

    I'd love to find a whiskey that matched those tasting notes. At 80 proof.

    It will be interesting to try this because you don't often find Canadian whisky finished in new oak. I'd like to see how much it resembles a bourbon. I did try Gibson's New Oak some time ago and it was quite good but subtle.

    Re: New Forty Creek whisky

    The tasting notes sounded interesting until anise was mentioned.. Still I would like to take a crack at it. I take it they don't char the barrels... I have the barrel select and it is pleasant but weak as far as 80 proofer Canadians go. I have a feeling Confederation Oak Reserve may be on the weak side also. I guess GTS has toughen up my palate making 80 proofers seem too watered down.
    Jeff...

    I can learn to resist anything but temptation.

    Re: New Forty Creek whisky

    It's very good, not sure if the Canadian wood really makes a difference but it is distinctive and tasty without being a clone of U.S. straight whiskey. I didn't get any anise in it.
