2019 Rum Howler Favourite 20 Canadian Whiskies: #16 – Windsor Canadian

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 7, 2019

Earlier this year, I was hosting a bit of a house warming party as my family and I had finally completed our move to our new home. The move was precipitated by my son’s need for a more wheelchair accessible home and although we hated to leave the original home we built 20 years ago, we were glad to be in our new digs.

I still had a lot of my Canadian Whisky collection boxed up and inaccessible so I went to the store to find a suitable dry rye whisky for the party.

And there it was a 1.75 litre bottle of Windsor Canadian for only $44.95.  Not only did the Windsor Canadian fit the bill as a great dry rye Whisky for a gathering of friends (most of whom would be mixing cocktails), it was also probably the best whisky deal I encountered during the entire year of 2019.

Review: Windsor Canadian Whisky

“… The initial nose is very typically ‘Canadian’ with firm butterscotch scents lying alongside a fruit-filled spicy rye. As I let the glass sit, some dusty ripened grain notes develop along with accompanying scents of straw and the chaff. There is a bit of dry grassiness reminiscent of timothy and foxtail and some zesty notes of orange and lemon peel. Rounding out the nose are a few bits of cinnamon and dark brown sugar …”

Please enjoy the review which includes a modern take on the classic Whiskey Crusta Cocktail, which I have called the Canadian Crusta.
