Jim picked MASTERSONS 10 YEARS OLD STRAIGHT RYE WHISKY as the 2014 Canadian whisky of the year with a rating of 96.5.

Here's an excerpt from the LCBO on this expression-

"Description
Complex aromas of rye grain, linseed oil, earth, floral notes and leather. Fascinating on the palate with vanilla, earth, hot pepper and sweet/spicy ginger notes. Long earthy/floral finish. 5 Stars (out of 5) (canadianwhisky.org)
Taste Profile: Medium & Spicy"
Tasting Note
Nose: A broad range of aromas beginning with dry grain, rye grain, linseed oil and the earthiness of damp Prairie soil. Faintly floral notes that blossom slowly into sweet-scented perfume dissolve in the sweet complex aromas of gunny sacs, saddle leather and fragrant dry tobacco leaves ... Palate: ... A very complex palate beautifully integrates a range of flavours ... Finish: A long finish fades slowly on floral perfume, citric pith, and lasting reminiscences of earth ... Very Highly Recommended. Score - 5 Stars (out of 5). (Davin de Kergommeaux, canadianwhisky.org, Oct. 17, 2011)".
