    What better way to celebrate our national holiday than to sample the bsat Canadian Whisky that I have yet to experienced. Formally titled as "Forty Creek John K . Hall Port Wood Reserve", it is exquisite. Raisins, cinnamon, cane syrup with a long pepper/tobacco finish.

    Of course one gets a prominent taste of port in a port wood finish. but beneath that I tasted blackberries and crème de cacao with a mild pepper finish. One of the better Canadians that I have tasted.

    Honeyed raisins, fig compote aromas on the nose. Fiery yet smooth spiciness with mellow richness, toasted almonds and hint of smoke. Very good presence in the mouth. Smooth.
