When U.S. spirits-maker Beam was acquired by Japan’s Suntory it also acquired the well-known Canadian Club brand which was in Beam’s stable. However, Suntory already owned Alberta Distillers which is a premium source of Canadian rye whisky. After much careful experimentation with this Alberta source stock by the Beam-Suntory craft makers in Kentucky, a new straight rye whisky was born – under the popular CC label.
Nose: Very soft, nonthreatening grain, with a sweet envelope of vanilla, bubblegum, and honeysuckle. Hints of acetone (nail polish remover) highlights its youthfulness.
Palate: Creamy mouth feel. Ethanol and heat initially, unexpected given its ABV of 40%. The palate offers sweet grains and a teasing of jammy stone fruits,
Finish: Short. Vanilla sweet and floral, with more honeysuckle and some orange blossom. Pleasant and not bitter, but quick.
