    Re: New Forty Creek whisky

    I'm a big fan of this one. A few brief notes (sorry if they belong elsewhere—I'm still learning the site)...

    Nose: dusty rye, vanilla, toasted pecans, roast corn on the cob, butter.

    Palate: rye (somewhat drying), more toasted pecans, and maple syrup. Rye starts the finish, but fades to vanilla.

    Really nice stuff. My favourite Canadian whisky right now.
    "Good" may be subjective, but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary.

    Re: New Forty Creek whisky

    Sounds good but I am not sure what to make of "dusty rye"...is that good or bad or neutral?

    I meant it as neutral—there just has this sort of "dry, brittle" feel to the rye. It may mean nothing to anyone but me, but "dusty" was the best way I had to describe the sensation.

    According to Canadian Whisky:

    "With only 16,800 bottles produced, distiller John Hall of Kittling Ridge
    Distillery had originally intended Confederation Oak Reserve as a Canadian
    exclusive. However, he finally acquiesced to persistent demand from his
    American distributors to supply key retailers in the U.S. That’s a good
    thing. Eligibility for the Malt Advocate Awards is limited to whiskies that
    have been released in the U.S. during the past calendar year."

    Not sure who the "key retailers" are but it is available (somewhere!) in
    the USA.
