.@RobertOSimonson dude, that's sweet advice for the bros.
.@canadiancreed I do like Canadian whisky, though in this tasting it is first because it is typically the most approachable
@canadiancreed I call it the "whisk(e)y progression"
.@canadiancreed tasted from right to left you get Canadian, Irish, American Bourbon, Blended Scotch, Single Malt Highland and an Islay
