Bowman's Canadian, 40%

Price: $15 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

The freshly opened bottle smells promising, with spirit, toffee, suggestions of cloves, a blast of steely rye, and grapefruit juice on the nose. On the palate it is sweet, somewhat hot, slightly perfumed, and overall, quite simple. A lovely glow in the back of the mouth and on the tongue doesn't last, but is replaced by hints of caramel and citrus fruit. Good, solid session whisky.
