Canadian Club 12 Year Old Classic Canadian Whisky 700ml
Full and smooth in flavour and bronze to autumn gold in colour, the Canadian Club 12 Year Old Classic is soft, round, fully balanced and creamy. Fruity and firm in taste it has a delicate spiciness and creamy vanilla on the palate in balance with rich wood and luxurious honey. The finish is long and dry with enduring presence of butterscotch.
A man by the name of Hiram Walker, a successful grain merchant, was the founder of what is now known world wide as Canadian Club located in Ontario, Canada.
Believing their whisky was different, they branded their barrels with their name so it was easily recognisable to all who were beginning to notice them.
Canadians took pride in their very own whisky before the Americans also came to the party, considering it to be for the gentry who would visit exclusive gentlemen clubs, fast becoming known as the ‘Club Whisky’.
It wasn’t long before the whisky gained so much popularity, thus taking the shine off local American made bourbon, that the American government bought in the rule that at all spirits must be named with their country of origin, hence the genesis of Canadian Club Whisky.
The Canadian Club Classic 12-Year-Old is a whisky with more more complexity and a bit more personality. With a more robust barley profile, it’s a nice step up from 1858 or Reserve. This award-winning blended spirit is aged for 12 years in seasoned, char-treated oak bourbon barrels.
