Pike Creek 21 year old European Oak Finish, 45%

Price: $75 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

After blending, 21 year old Canadian whisky was finished in French and Hungarian oak barrels for added zest. This brought hints of nutmeg and candied Christmas cake fruits to berries, green fruits, pineapple, kiwi, spearmint, lush caramels, exotic wood, charred firewood, applewood, and lovely clean barrel notes. Glowing heat, leather, tobacco, furniture polish, and a creamy body. Beautifully complex, peppery, and balanced. (Canada exclusive) $100 CAD
