Century Ninety 5YO

Country: Canada

Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 45%
Score: 84 points

This whisky from Canada’s Highwood Distillers is named for its proof strength – 90 proof. The nose has a good balance of spice and sweet notes with ginger, honey, and a touch of nutmeg. The taste has a good spiciness with ginger, mild cinnamon, anise, black licorice and butterscotch notes. The finish has a spicy touch that peaks, then fades slowly to a nice smoothness with a slight tartness.  (September, 2013)
