Rating: 83  – Excellent | Really quite exceptional

Really fun blend. There’s a lot going on here which makes for a unique experience each time I sit down with it. It has great texture – likely from that extra aged Canadian corn whisky. The palate has a lot of traditional Canadian rye notes with the finish showing more Kentucky to me. With all of the recent Found North popularity, I’d love to see Beam-Suntory utilize more of their northern stock in blends to put out new releases similar to Noe Simple Task.
