A Taste of Canada ~ Canadian Club

I have tried Canadian Club a couple or three times in my life.  I am not a fan of Canadian Club or any whiskey except as a marinade for steaks. 



Here's what the LCBO has to say about it:

Canadian Club Whisky
750 mL bottle | LCBO#: 42
$28.45

The legend of Canadian Club began in 1858 and grew to become one of the world's most iconic whiskies. Pouring a medium gold you will find aromas of roasted almond, vanilla and pepper; with spicy vanilla, cornflakes and a faint nutty flavour on a medium weight palate with a long finish.


Although Canadian Club was invented in the US, it was, and still is, made at the Hiram Distillery in Windsor, Ontario thanks to Prohibition.  If you are interested in the history of this Canadian whiskey you should check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Club.  


Canadian Club Sweet Old Fashioned Cocktail recipe

This is a twist on the traditional old fashioned

2 shots Canadian Club Whisky
2 slices Orange
1 shots Sugar Syrup
1 dash Angostura Bitter
2 ml Maraschino Cherry
Method
Take 1 slice of orange and 1 Maraschino cherry in a large glass or tumbler with ice. Add 1 dash of Angastora bitters and 1 dash of Peychaud's bitters. (Not on the list but makes this drink!) Muddle together. Pour into a shaker, add, the Whiskey, and the Simple Syrup. Shake until frost starts to form. About 15 seconds. Place an orange slice and a Maraschino cherry in an "Old Fashioned" glass, fill about half way with ice. Strain the drink into the glass. Sip and Enjoy!
