Canadian Club Classic 12, 40% ABV

Price: $22.00 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Nose is much more integrated than the others; caramel and light honey tones with an oaky vein. After four CCs that were sequentially innocent, clumsy, eager, and balanced, this one is confident: well-rounded, sweet but not goopy, oaked but not prickly. Well-named: this is a classic Canadian.
