Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky Flash Review
Company on Label: Sazerac
Whiskey Type: Canadian Whisky
Mash Bill Percentages: Undisclosed
Further identification: This single barrel product bears no additional information (kind of disappointing)
Lovely light caramel toasted oak with citrus zest and a touch of pine needle tea. Noses a bit towards a leather scent. Light white pepper, dusty vanilla, and some airy hints of butterscotch. Very floral at times and other times not. There are some indeterminate fruit aromas that come off like unripe berries. Sips easy with creamy lemon brittle and a bit of walnut shells. Some shortbread cookie similar to a Midleton Irish whiskey profile. Mostly caramel and vanilla forward - a fluffy wanna-be-bourbon at its heart, really. Some orange creamsicle can be dug up on longer swishes and chews. At 80 proof I’ve made way more of this bottle disappear than I had anticipated! It really sips too darn easy.
Not bad at all! This is a fantastic pour for hot days and tired days... Drinks better than most Irish whiskeys I enjoy on similar evenings.
