It's pretty good for the price, has some complex flavors that surprised me. Harsh alcohol on the nose so I wasn't able to pick up as many notes as I wanted to. This is not due to proof but other factors, as I can get notes all day from Booker's or Kentucky Spirit. I had the same problem with the 12 year old classic. Fine budget taste but nothing I'd want to rave about.

Tried the standard CC a few weeks ago and quite liked it so I thought i'd treat myself to this and i'm glad I did. I usually drink single malt scotch but this is nice to have every once in a while as its something different, in a good way!

Sublime sherry finish, yet so easy to drink you'll need more than one bottle!

Sweet Jesus I'm so glad this is back. Agree with Mike that its weakness lies in its drinkability, but even perfection has flaws. Breathtaking example of a clear, high-clarity sherry butt in action.

This is the best tasting C.C. out there but you cannot find it anywhere.

I am mightily impressed by this whisky. The sherry casks impart a very rich flavour but the grains hold their own. It is in fact one of the best Canadian whiskies I've had, and I've had a good few. But it is a little too easy-drinking, perhaps. It doesn't challenge the palate at all and goes down like nothing at all.

I've been drinking different whiskies for the past 5 years. Other than the Blanton's and JW Black, this is the best. Nuff said.

Makes best Manhattan ever; mixed with Cinzano Bianco (2:1 whiskey to vermouth) plus dash of bitters.
