This whisky starts off with delicate aromas of hazelnut, toffee and smoky oak on the nose and leads into honey-toned notes of grain and vanilla flavors in the mouth with a slight hint of orange zest. Delicate and mellow finish with notes of honey.
Wine Maker Notes
Club Whisky became very popular and American distillers petitioned for the inclusion of the word “Canada” on the bottle to distinguish it from their competing whiskies, thinking it would halt the popularity of Walker’s. This backfired, only making Club Whisky more exclusive. Walker saw this and changed the label again in 1889 adding the word “Canadian” to the top of the label, distinguishing Walker’s recipe for his whisky from the other processes of the time (Scotch, Irish and U.S.). In 1890, the word “Canadian” was moved down from the top of the label and incorporated into the name of the whisky.
