In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, amber to copper color with distinct ruby hues.

Aromatics

The nose is wonderfully fruity and floral with a backdrop of toasted grains supported by saddle leather, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and toasted oak.

Flavor

The palate echoes the nose delivering a rich fruit and spice driven core that is reminiscent of premium aged Rum. It's an amazing, seamless blend of fruit and grain.

Intensity & Texture

It's full-bodied without being brooding or heavy offering more elegance than weight with ideal balance.

Cool Factor

A

Wood finishes are hardly a new phenominon while use of Brandy barrels with Canadian Whisky does create a flavor sensation that is quite unique.

Value Grade

B

This is a mighty fine sipping Whisky and in today's market a mid-$30 price tag is met with a positive response.

Analysis

This new expression from the successful Pendleton brand truly offers a new tasty addition to their portfolio. The difference maker is the use of American Brandy barrels that are employed to age a portion of their Canadian Whisky. It's bottled at 90 proof, which accentuates the Whisky's fruity nature. It is very Rum-like in all of the best possible ways.

How to Enjoy

This unique Whisky is great in cocktails as this will take your Brandy or Whiskey cocktails in a very new direction (think of a newly imagined Sidecar or Manhattan).
