Still Waters 1-11 Special Blend, 40%

Price: $35.00 Issue: Winter 2012 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Still Waters blends sourced whiskey with under 9.09% of their own young spirit as top dressing (hence the name; it's one part in eleven). Sweet cereal, honey, and flowers on the nose, which become much more authoritative in the mouth. Still sweet, but with a firm thump on the tongue, hot thin honey, crushed flower petals, and a lively, welcome heat for 40%. Clean, cereal-honey finish. Could be a bit more robust, but I like it fine as it is. (Ontario exclusive)C$35
