Forty Creek Cream, 17%

Price: $29.00 Issue: Winter 2012 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Quite a bit darker than most other whisky creams. Chocolate and caramel—on the burnt side, an interesting difference—in the nose, with a sly hint of whisky behind it. Sweet and creamy, a bit clingy, with just a sting of whisky. Somewhat generic, though, because that interesting dark caramel is in the nose only, and I'd like this to be a bit more distinctive; more Forty Creek. Still pleasant enough for booze candy! C$29
