Collingwood Tasting Notes
Handcrafted Blended Canadian Whisky
Toasted Maplewood Mellowed
40% Alcohol – 80 Proof
Quite impressive bottle design. However it is remotely difficult to remove the initial cover (it is sealed snuggly to the bottle) before opening the actual bottle top which lies below the cap.
Taste: Perfume sweetness. Floral. Some burn. Candied quality without overly sweetness coming through. Bit of powder dryness in the after taste. Syrup element as it applies to a spirit. As if this is the thinned out version of maple syrup with quite a bit of spirited punch. Twinge of anise (licorice). Sort of like hard shell candy coated anise seed.
On Ice: Quite a bit of sweetness brought out when served over ice. More anise and floral notes than before.
