Black Velvet Toasted Caramel, 35%

Price: $13.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Canadian whisky is sweeter to start with, and so may well be a natural base for flavors. It certainly seems that way with this underpriced example. The nose is like restrained caramel candy, a fairly deep note of toasted sugar. The drink itself is sweet, but doesn't cling, and is crying for a bit of fizz, or some ice cream to drape itself over. Not bad at all for the price.
