Highwood 25 year old Calgary Stampede Centennial, 40%

Price: $52.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

A few years ago, Alberta's Highwood distillers purchased all the remaining stock from Potter's whisky brokerage just over the Rocky Mountains in Kelowna. With it, Highwood skillfully created a sumptuous, limited-edition bottling that is as sweet, smooth, and creamy as French vanilla ice cream, and richer in fresh clean wood than a carpentry shop. Dried cloves and red cedar balance real maple syrup and butterscotch which, in turn, dissolve into sweet white grapefruit. (Alberta only) C$52
