Canadian Club Whisky

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky differently from me.

Colour:

Reddish gold.

Nose:

Sweet with aniseed and a touch of straw.

Palate:

Watery bit with some sweetness and aniseed note again with a rising bitterness.

Finish:

Bitter, aniseed – like cough syrup.

Notes:

Cheap and watery with very little of interest. But then at £18/£20 a bottle I wouldn’t have expected much from it anyway. But then it’s more designed for mixing than drinking neat, so as a mixer it probably wouldn’t be too bad and at the price it’s not the end of the world even if it did make an awful mixer.

    Yeh, I thought pretty much the same thing. It had a couple of quid off in the supermarket, so thought I’d give it a go, slightly better than Haig Club Clubman, but not much, certainly same ball park, as you say, wouldn’t want to drink it neat, but passable with a mixer/in a cocktail. For the same money you’re better off with one of Lidl or Aldi’s whiskies.

    1. Precisely. A bit more flavour to it than Clubman but yes some of the Aldi and Lidl bottom shelf whiskies are more enjoyable than this.
