Pike Creek 10 year old, 40%

Price: $40.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

This soft, fruity luxury is a stablemate to Corby's Lot No. 40, and another resurrected member of the once-lost Canadian Whisky Guild. Hiram Walker's distillery, where Pike Creek is made, is one of the largest in North America. However, the owner, Pernod-Ricard, encourages creativity and innovation as well as product reliability. Gingery dark fruits mingle with canned fruit and clean oak, while a peppery nuttiness lingers below soft red wine and white grapefruit. C$40
