Proof66 Notes

Canadian Club Chairman's Select 100% Rye Whisky is, as the label so clearly announces, a whisky made from a base of 100% rye grain. This separates it from the great majority of rye whisky on the market that is softened with corn, barley, wheat, or other grains to a greater or lesser extent. While the bottling is done at their plant in Ontraio, several reports suggest the actual distilling is done by Alberta Distillers.

This is 100% blended rye whisky made out of mash using 100% rye grain, ( made from single grain Rye) its aged for 7 years, thats the youngest blended whisky in the mix, Not the oldest , blended whisky (youngest blended whisky is 7 years old, )its great value for money , very nice and well balanced 100% rye blended whisky . Decent price you can drink neat ,on the rocks , i recommend in my humble opinion not add any water or soda to it ,as this destroys the flavour & delicate balance. Produced using100% rye malt only. Though it is Canadian Club brand , what makes it unique is it is not actually distilled at the Hiram Walker plant in Windsor (like the rest of the Canadian Club line) – it is actually distilled and bottled in Alberta, from Alberta Distillers Ltd . Its possible because they’re both owned by Beam-Suntory . Nose Balanced with toasted grains, gentle wood notes and a tantalizing hint of sweet vanilla Palate Complex balance of rye spiciness, caramel and oak notes, warm and creamy Finish Long clean finish with hints of clove,nutmeg , oak and vanilla. Mild not very strong , delicate balance . It is quite clear some mix of virgin ( never used) oak barrels were used for its 7 year maturation. As per Canadian whisky regulations No distinction is made between the quality of the barrels – new or used, charred or uncharred barrels may be filled for aging. So the producer of this whisky uses a mix of different qualities of barrels for aging and then blending whisky from those barrels .This is very very delicatley balanced whisky ,in my humble opinion using water , or soda would destroy the delicate balance . This clearly falls into fine example of this 100% Canadian Rye whisky category that in my humble opinion can be enjoyed neat at it best ,second best option to enjoy is on the rocks. The worse option is to drink this whisky with water, soda, pop etc . The Chairman’s Select is aged in American Oak (bourbon barrels), bottling strength (40 % abv) and then bottled in Walkerville Ontario, by Canadian Club , (Beam-Suntory is the parent company ) CASK TYPE NEW WHITE AMERICAN OAK, EX-BOURBON, EX-CANADIAN WHISKY BARRELS. 40% alchol by volume . Color Antique gold. I am 100% sure this whisky will keep winning many many Gold medals in different competitions as the times goes on . Great Great value for money. I give it 4.9 out of 5 marks based on value, taste , unique balance ,aging , use of different barrels for aging ,etc etc. This whisky i gurantee 100% can become one of the top 5 whisky in world , in its category if Hiram Walker can bottle it at 45% alchol by volume + age it for 10 years . King of 100% Canadian Rye whisky in its own category. Awards : Double gold in 2015 Gold in 2016

Excellent value and a nice well-rounded rye. Canadian rye tends to be more mellow than its American counterpart and this is no exception. Very nice and well balanced. Very pleasing in general and a better value than Crown Royal Northern Harvest rye.
