Oh, Canada! A Look at Whiskies from The Great White North

Jack Bettridge
Posted: March 30, 2012

(continued from page 2)

With the PDR: We were disappointed with this pairing in which the cigar seemed to rob the whisky of some of its charm, making it doughier. Neither did the whisky perform any favors for the cigar, blunting its flavors.

With the Four Kicks: Collingwood showed off its pairing ability to great effect with Four Kicks. The whisky turned the cigar chewier, with nougat and a nutty, candy-bar quality. The cigar returned the compliment by dulling some of the outlying sweetness in the whisky.

"Candied fruitiness at the happy ending."

Really?
