Agree with Gary also being mindful when I refer to a Canadian Whisky as being rich, full and complex that's in comparison to other Canadians and not to Bourbon.
I've come around to Canadian as its own thing, so I won't be expecting an American richness going in. And as we don't have Legaccy here will go grab a VO this week. Thanks guys!
Ive virtually no exp w Canadians, but have come to adore my old Lot 40. Finish is the one area I find lacking, however. What to attribute that to?
Its own thing, exactly.. (i.e., vs. other Canadians).
The reason the finish is different than bourbon? The main reason is the Canadians do not use the new charred barrel, or not for 100% of the aging.
I suppose it may simply be that. Nonetheless I will grab a bottle this week and give her a go.
Sean if you're going to grab a VO I recommend the 8 year old VO Gold.
Never seen that one around here, but will keep a looksee.
