Got to try three of the expressions of their Forty Creek lineup: Port Wood, Confederation Oak, and Double Barrell. The Confederation Oak was a revelation. So amazing. I can't really describe it anymore now, being as it is a couple days later, but I know it was one of the best whiskeys period, not just Canadian, that I have had the chance to try.
Pio, I know you and I have discussed your dislike for some of the medicinal, iodine-like qualities of Forty Creek before, but if you get a chance, give the Confederation Oak a shot, you won't regret it. It has none of those qualities that are present in the Port Wood and some of Forty Creek's lesser bottlings.
I also tried the Auchentoshan Valinch, which I was pleasantly surprised by. It's unique character was its "zippyness", somewhat reminiscent of what Gewurtztraminer is to wine. A little punchy, zippy, spicy, etc. It's young, and you can tell that, but I really enjoyed that quality of it. It's almost sold out in my province, but I will be trying to track down a bottle.
