2019 Rum Howler Favourite 20 Canadian Whiskies: #4 – Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 19, 2019

Caribou Crossing is what is known as a Single Barrel Whisky. From the company’s inventory of over 200,000 barrels of Canadian whisky, Sazerac’s whisky making team selects what they deem to be some of the very finest barrels. Each of these chosen barrels is bottled individually capturing its unique flavour. This means that each individual bottling offers a unique taste experience for the whisky enthusiast.

This is a whisky which I believe has gotten better over time. When the brand was first introduced, my review scores were high, but nothing to get to excited about. But over the past three years my review scores have jumped significantly. I’m not sure whether that barrel picking team from Sazerac has just gotten better at their job, or if maybe I am just more attuned to the wonderful mixture of spicy rye and sweet corn that jumps to my palate each time I sample a new bottle.

Whatever the reason, Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky is now one of my very favourites. I certainly would like Mrs. Claus to put a bottle under the tree for me this year:

Review: Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky

“… The lightly buttered mouth-feel gives the Caribou Crossing a little length in the exit featuring flavours of oak, corn and butterscotch which trail down the throat. After the whisky is swallowed, sweet honeycomb lingers on the palate and the glowing embers of disappearing rye spices leave their imprint …”

Please enjoy the review, Chimo!
