Bottler: Highwood Distillers
Score: 85 points
This limited-edition bottling from Alberta’s Highwood Distillers celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede in 2012. The nose has a rich vanilla note, along with hints of raspberry, fresh-cut cedar, honey, and butterscotch. The taste is spicy with clove and cinnamon, and just a hint of butterscotch underneath for balance, along with a grapefruit note that leads into a slightly tart and dry finish with mild oakiness.
