Swear Jar 6yo Canadian Whisky 40% 75cl
OK. OKAY. I'll be honest with you. I originally wanted to bring this into the shop JUST FOR THE NAME. I loved the name, I loved the 'bottle' - it's coated glass so you CAN actually use it as a 'swear jar' - I loved the whole package around the actual liquid.
And then I tried it. And BLOODY HELL if it isn't actually surprisingly good. Yes, this absolutely isn't the most complex, deep, intricate whisky in the world. But it's immensely drinkable with enough bite and spice to work in a cocktail too. You can share this with friends - even those that don't really drink whisky - and all have a very pleasant time.
The nose is a little lacking, to be brutally honest. I get hints of caramel, cereal and white pepper, but not much else. However, the palate has a very nice silky texture, allowing waves of butterscotch, vanilla and toasted hazelnuts to come to the fore. There's a hit of cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom on the finish, meaning this has enough bite to work in a cocktail - although maybe not an Old Fashioned.
Canadian whisky is sorely underrated - this is certainly one of the better examples of what the country can offer, and very much not a case of style over content!
