A member of another forum that I visit sent me a small bottle of Forty Creek Premium Barrel Select. 40% Alcohol by volume Canadian Whisky, I am anxious to give it a try this evening. Does anyone know much about this whisky? How it compares to other Canadian Whisky's in terms of quality? The only other Canadian Whisky that I can recall recently is Canadian Club. I have been told the CC is considered rot-gut in Canada. Relatives of mine used to only drink Crown Royal but I haven't tried that either.
Also, some hints as to properly taste this whisky would be helpful as I am still very much of a newcomer, yet I am starting to develop a palate for the different Whisk(e)y's
I have found that I prefer bourbon mostly because of price and being an American.
