From the producer:
This second issue of CC Chronicles pays tribute to the dock men who operated floating liquor stores and bars aboard their vessels. During Prohibition, there were many counterfeit makers of CC, but savvy bar owners and whisky fans knew they could count on the dock men to provide only genuine Canadian Club®. With this 42- year- old whisky, we celebrate their uncompromising commitment to origin, authenticity, quality and craftsmanship.
Whiskey Advocate - Vol. 28, #3 - 96pts.
The Chronicles collection debuted two years ago with the release of the 40 year old. This, the third annual release, incorporates a smidgen of younger rye and a dash of brandy. The nose and palate are deep and complex. Fruity and floral on the nose, with hints of raisin tarts, apple skins, and apricots. A sweet fruitiness, with mild peppers, baking spices, and a crisp, vaguely tannic backbone. Extended fruity, glowing finish.
