Canadian Club 100% Rye Canadian Whisky
375 mL bottle | $15.80
Mashbill: 100% Rye
A pure expression of rye whisky; more complex and characterful, this pours medium gold. Aromas of sweet fruit, herb and spice, with vanilla, toffee, pepper, cedar smoke and banana on the nose. The sweet, creamy and warm palate is balanced by rye spice flavours followed by a long finish showing dried fruit, honey and ginger.
Canadian Club 100% Rye Whisky is the rye component of what would normally go into Canadian Club whisky. A typical Canadian whisky is made of corn, rye and barley that are each distilled and aged separately and then blended together before bottling. This blend is sometimes then put into other barrels for finishing or additional maturation, but often it’s blended in steel tanks and bottled straight away. With how hot rye is right now It’s not hard to understand why CC put out the Canadian Club 100% Rye Whisky. If anyone has a ton of it just sitting around in barrels it would be the Canadians; this is why brands like Whistle Pig have been importing their rye from Alberta for so long. It’s really interesting to try this single component of CC and I think they should continue the tradition and release a 100% corn and 100% malt one as well.
