CanadianWhisky.org rated this whisky as:
"Very fruity and rich, the nose is immediately
reminiscent of those old fruity lumber smells of whiskies like Canadian
Club 30-year old with its prunes and dry figs and sweet wood and
lushness. Bursting blasts of candied ginger quickly overpower a huge surging creamy butterscotch. The finish is very long; it never really disappears. Spicy and refreshingly citric with lots of ginger and grapefruit pith."
A spicy Thai or teriyaki wings sauce would complement this whisky excellently.
