Pike Creek Canadian Whiskey
Delicate aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle, cedar and vanilla. Incredibly rich mouthfeel with maple syrup, citrus and baked peaches. Also suggesting cinnamon and perhaps smoke. A grainy, lasting finish follows. EXCELLENT, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - 2013 ULTIMATE SPIRITS CHALLENGE
This small-batch whisky is finished in Port barrels, which isn't seen often in Canadian whisky. More Port-like fruit would have been welcome; instead, the mild scent shows oak and allspice, while the palate has light brushes of caramel, brown sugar, maple and resin, finishing drying and oaky.
