My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

Forty Creek Double Wood Reserve

It is becoming a real cliche now to say how great Forty Creek is.  I take some solace from the fact I was saying this on this blog - look it up if you don't believe me - in 2011.  I tried this expression at the excellent Reserve 101 bar in Houston in early 2014.  The nose has vanilla cream and caramel.  A dessert nose.  The taste has toffee, apple caramel and toasted nuts.  Soft and creamy and then a finish with some sharper citrus and charred oak in the finish.  Not Forty Creek's best work, but that is very high bar indeed.  I resolve 2014 will be the year I make it to Canada and to Forty Creek....
