I’ve haven’t been much of a rye drinker since my first night out drinking at a bar. I won’t go into the details except to say that I was smitten with a black haired girl that my friends would later insist didn’t exist. And then I puked out a window. And so ended my love affair with rye, although I still pine over the cute black haired girl every one in a while.
Thankfully, my partner Tim suggested that I pick up a very reasonably priced bottle of Canadian Club Sherry Cask with a recently obtained LCBO gift card. This stuff is fantastic!
I don’t know if it’s just the intense sherry flavour overpowering a rather unobtrusive base or if it’s a really good rye to begin with. I don’t really have anything to measure it against. All I can say is that I just might switch gears from my current Oban kick for a while.
