This whisky is similar to the Pike Creek 10 Year Old which is available in Canada, except that it is a little younger and doesn't have an age statement. However, in my tastings of it, I haven't found the quality to differ from the 10 Year version available in Canada.


Review (2015; Blind)

  • Batch: N/A
  • Bottling Code: L15026 EW10:13
  • Bottling Date: 2015

This whisky was tasted and reviewed blind.

Woody and spicy, complex and dark. On the palate - candied oranges, maple, rye spice, and a bit of a weetabix finish to it as the grains shining through. The balance is good and the spices and candied orange hold the end quite nicely. It tastes ever-so-lightly younger than the Canadian version, but the quality is the same (in 2015 at any rate).

Score: 82/100

Value: 72/100 (based on $40)
