Collingwood Brings Maple Finish to Canadian Whisky

Jack Bettridge
Posted: March 25, 2011

(continued from page 1)

NOSE: The maple finish is immediately discernible on the aroma. Other sweet notes-honey, flowers and fruit-follow.

PALATE: There is a moment on the tip of the tongue when the whisky is almost saccharine, but it passes instantly as the liquid rolls through the palate it gains structure. Deep red fruits are the first impression, followed by maple sugar and an alluring rich spiciness in the direction of licorice and cinnamon.

FINISH: After a return its candied fruitiness, the whisky shuts off abruptly on the finish.

The bottle reminds me of a bottle of cologne , or knob creek with a big cap. Jack have you tasted Collingwood with a cigar? If not what do you think would be a nice match?

It seems like people constantly are telling me they have found a better whisky and ill go buy a bottle but I always go back to my crown royal, a double crown on the rocks is my drink usualy accompanied with an esspresso before or after, and a Cuban Romeo Y Julieta. Would you recommend this whisky to me or maybe something else?

I went and got a bottle of this stuff a week or so ago and I didn't really enjoy it by itself. But it was really good with a cigar and in cocktails. I only tried it in a whiskey sour and Manhattan though.
