If I was only allowed one whiskey for the rest of my life (as in if I was only allowed to buy one, not some magic supply) it would probably be this. Good on the rocks or straight up and equally good with soda water or a dry ginger. I love this stuff.

Canadian Club is one of my favorite shots; it goes well with Molson or Labatts, of course.

I grew up near the CC distillery where my Dad worked in Walkerville. The smell of cooking mash for the CC is one of my earliest sensory memories. In fact, I did a stint working there while a student, dishing out free drinks to distillery tourists. The training was very specific: one was not allowed to corrupt the CC with anything other than ice, water, Canada Dry ginger ale and, after a frown, Coca Cola. The ginger and cola were not an option if the order was for CC Classic.

Got so many good memories of this from the 90s when it seemed to be ubiquitous. Real smooth and a great mixing whisky.

Well I got another 30 year old bottle from the Whisky Exchange along with a Sherry Cask bottle. Now that I have one of each I will be opening both this X-Mass. Now all I need is 2 bottles of 20 year old. Wish me luck on my quest in my hunt.

My grandfather referred to the taste of CC as, "an angel piddling on your tongue" - all I know is it's the finest drop of Canadian Whisky there is!

I've been given a bottle as an early Xmas pressie, I usually prefer Irish whiskey but I'm really enjoying a small tot with ginger ale - perfect for a winters afternoon.

The 30 year old anniversary bottle in a presentation box was only really available in duty free shops and they produced about 3000 bottles, but I understand the normal 30 Year old is available. Unfortunately CC appears to be disappearing from the shop shelves in the UK, and you have to really hunt around for anything other than the normal 1858 standard bottle.

On the rocks for me. Wonderful everyday drink.

smell: pistachio nuts and some mild treacle notes after a deep sniff.taste: a little bit smokey, overwhelming maple syrup takes over most of the tasteverdict: very distinctive whisky for most good reasons. very sweet so stay clear if you dread sweet whiskys like 'Four Roses' and so on. 78 points

Hi PT, I'm afraid we've never come across that one - don't think it's ever been widely available in UK. Apologies.

This is a question not a review. I have 1 bottle of the 30 year old which was produced for CC's 150 year anniversary, Does anyone know where I can obtain another bottle so I can open and taste with my 3 son's. I collect old and odd bottles of CC I just don't want to open the one I have.

Great whisky for mixing cocktails! Excellent with ginger ale and ice!
- anonymous, 18th Jan '11
Hmm, Im new to it, I can't work it out. Its not like bourbon or scotch. The nose is mild, the taste also sweet and mild. In the taste I get rye, sacharin, wax and a hint of rum. Id say its probably perfect for mixing. I had it with apple soda and it was fantastic. I'll try it with 7-up and ginger as suggested.

Canadian Club has been my favourite whisky for more than a decade. Everyone I've introduced to it has appreciated it, and got themselves a bottle. A shot of this is how I tell myself the working day is finished.

This is the one that I drink the most of. I started drinking CC and 7up when serving in Cyprus 1972. Have been drinking it ever since when you can find it in the Pubs, Clubs and Hotels. CC does not appear to be so available as it one was. Must be about time CC starts a new advertising campaign in the UK. (I collect old full bottles)

Smashing whisky. Always in my cabinet. Great with Fever Tree ginger ale and ice.
