The Canadian Club 42-Year-Old Chronicles Issue No. 2 “The Dock Man,” and Canadian Club 43-Year-Old Chronicles Issue No. 3 “The Speakeasy” were both tasted virtually with Canadian Club Brand Ambassador Tish Harcus. Both versions are, in a word, stunning. The 42-year-old offers up a nose of intense ginger, vanilla, biscuit, butterscotch, citrus fruit, and flower blossom. In the mouth, it shows amazing balance and elegance, with flavours suggesting mild anise, caramel, vanilla bean, and clove. The 43-year-old shows a deeper colour, with aromas of sultana, sandalwood, mocha, and marmalade. Rich, full, and complex, the flavour profile hints at toffee and clove, with a distinct, palate-tingling spiciness. Which is “better” is pretty much a moot question, as both are equally impressive.
