Back from its last appearance in the 90's, this was part of a trio released by Corby in Canada. Lot No. 40 and Gooderham & Worts were the other two. Lot No. 40 has just re-appeared as well, thus two out of the three releases are being given a come-back.
As with Lot 40, Pike Creek, a 10 year old whisky, is (IMO) a better whisky than the first time around. It tastes like a regular well-aged Canadian but the port finishing is very well executed resulting in a fruity and softly smooth palate. Fruit, wood, ethanol and light whisky spice all combine to a pleasing taste, on the light side but very well executed again.
It needs neat drinking to really appreciate it, ditto Proof reviewed earlier.
