Canadian Club Whisky
Also from Canadian Club Whisky Distillery
Whisky or Whiskey
Insider knowledge: Canadian Club Whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Canada. If distilled in America the spelling would be Canadian Club Whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

The nose is of medium-body with notes of barley sugar and aniseed, notes of cut grass and fennel, a hint of straw and a vegetal freshness. The palate is quite sweet and gentle. There are notes of winter spice and dark sugars, a touch of rum. The finish is of medium-sweetness and of medium-length.
The Best In The House
I have been drinking Canadian Club for 40 years. I have a selection of 100% proof, Classic and vintage year plus the 150 Year Anniversary bottle. I enjoy the smooth taste and during the summer this is a refreshing evening drink to relax with. Not bad for a Brit as it the only whisky I drink, it's the drink I prefer but unfortunately it's not readily available in all outlets within the UK you have to hunt for it or but it on line
I saw it on offer for £12.24p in my local ASDA & thought - why not?
All I know is that I enjoyed the smoothness of it rather like Famous Grouse.
A beutfully sweet taste with a nice hint of spices.
Well worth paying more than I did for.
Canadian Club is an established brand that proudly makes a statement displaying its date of foundation proudly on its label and featuring prominently in shows such as Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men and promoted in adverts espousing it’s masculinity, this is a brand with an impressive heritage and cultural impact and as such I did have high expectations when I first opened the bottle
Hailing from Canada, I didn’t know what really to expect in terms of style, to me Canada isn’t on my mental list of esteemed whisky producing nations, I have a loose idea of what a bourbon will be like and what a peated malted is going to bring to the table, all I knew about Canada was that they love ice hockey and maple syrup and share a Queen with us.
I had my first measure poured over ice and this is how I think it’s meant to be drank, the first impressions were smoothness followed by sweetness, not a cloying honey sweetness but a crisp and clean sugary flavour, hiding in the background was a very green and fresh note that added a balance of dry flavours to the palate. It didn’t burn at all going down yet still though it had been poured over ice had a warming effect as it slipped down my gullet, and leaving a spicy note on my tongue long after I had finished the glass.
At room temperature the flavours blended a lot more and it was even smoother but had a nose of aniseed/fennel that came through a lot stronger than when enjoyed on the rocks.
I have been told it makes a mighty good Old Fashioned, however in my opinion it was perfectly fine just enjoyed neat over ice, turning syrupy with the cold.
Details about its manufacture are quite hard to find and as is it’s age etc, however don’t let that put you off, it’s definitely a everyday drinkable whisky that offers something a bit different from similarly priced Scotch or Bourbon.
All in all I think that if you claim to like Whisky then it’s a good purchase and also might be palatable to those who say they dislike Whisky having only encountered mainstream brands. So if you fancy a change and don’t want to spend a lot, try a bottle of Canadian Club.
Fairly strong alcoholic burn and clear rum notes when sipped neat. Otherwise, not very complex. Not necessarily bad, but it's just not what I'd expect in a beverage calling itself "whisky".
It does, however, mix quite nicely with Ginger Ale.
This is an excellent whisky to use for a Manhattan, no too much Martini Rosso and some ice. It has warmed us many times through cold Canadian winters. Crown Royal is good too but more expensive. CC is not a pretentious drink but a good, well regarded household brand. And of course it is whisky!!!
