Signal Hill, 40%

Price: $35 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

Legendary Canadian whisky blender Mike Booth blends small batches within sight of Newfoundland's Signal Hill, using 95% corn and 5% barley whiskies matured in new oak, bourbon, and Canadian whisky barrels. Golden raisins and dried fruits with brown sugar, maple cream, dark rum, and classic peppery rye spices on the palate. Citrus peel, sandalwood, vanilla, soft oak, and a hint of spice. Rummy throughout with blackstrap molasses tugging on the palate in the finish.
