Went to a bar and had the pleasure of trying this premium canadian whiskey. First thing I noticed about it was sawdust and spice notes on the nose with a thick buttery spice being the first flavor I picked up, followed by dry oak like bbq oak chips with creme brulee.

If i had a proper glass this whiskey would've been more accessible, still 8/10 which is the highest I have rated a Canadian Whiskey.

I have never really explored Candian whisky other than the standard Crown Royal. I dont think Caribou Crossing is available this side of the water as far as i know, in fact not that many find their way here unfortunately.

It was very good, a bit pricy for a canadian.

However I had a canadian based rye that night that surpases every other rye I have had or own, it is called Mastersons.

Living here in Southern Ontario Canada, I do have the pleasure, privilege and convenience of having access to scores of Canadian whiskies. In fact there are 2 distilleries, Forty Creek and Dillon's less than 30 minutes drive from my home. Jim Murray rates many Canadian whiskies in the 90-95 range. I particularly like Danfield's Limited Edition 21 Year Small Batch which I adore. I have several bottles. During prohibition, the Canadian whisky market ruled the roost in North America and unfortunately over the years, distilleries were sold off or retired and the heyday of Canadian whisky leading the way faded. It has made some significant comeback in recent years and the variety of great Canadian products are really in abundance if one lives in Canada. Unfortunately , many of these expressions are not available across the pond though many are available in the USA.
