Proof66 Notes

Spicebox Canadian whisky is an homage to the bootlegging days of the (dark and dismal) American Prohibition. They say that Canadian whisky was smuggled across the border in crates marked "Spices"... hence, "Spicebox."

To start off, here's one thing that really annoys me about this "small batch" spiced whisky: I've NEVER seen a bottle that WASN'T labelled as Lot #1372, either at liquor stores or from pictures online, going on several years now. I liked it on my first few attempts but grew tired of it pretty quickly. I can see how Captain Morgan fans might enjoy this (the nose is fairly similar, except Spicebox cranks it up to 14), but as a whisky it's main flaw is a lack of balance.

Definitely not your typical whiskey, and it may not appeal to the true whiskey crowd. But for me that's a good thing. I normally like cocktails, with the occasional neat spiced rum or liqueur and this fit right into that arena. Easy sipping neat or on the rocks, lots of vanilla in the scent and flavor and doesn't have the burn that a lot of whiskeys have.

This is very sweet and full of vanilla. I think the Wine Enthusiast review was right in declaring it liqueur-like. To me, it's a great replacement for Kajmir or other vanilla liqueurs that people are missing. It's hard to reach for a Canadian flavored whisky with any credibility but this is actually very, very nice.

I am a rum drinker at heart, and love spiced rum. This puts quite a few of them to shame, absolutely delicious, flavourful and sweet. Highly recomended.

Spice and Canadian whiskey. I expected to hate it. I was WRONG. Amazing nose -- puts me in mind of cookie dough or French toast. Smooth, lightly sweet, and a dynamite bouquet of spice. As soon as it's time, I'm adding this to eggnog -- regularly. It's good with Coke, too. (Real sugar kind, of course.)
