.@JamieBoudreau I'm going summon the expert @DavindeK for his research on this
.@JamieBoudreau I hope you aren't quoting Embury about GNS, he was wrong and all Canadian whisky must be 3 years old drnk.ca/1IEmrBY
.@JamieBoudreau yes, the regulations are loose, but most Canadian distillers don't add flavouring, except Canadian Mist.
.@JamieBoudreau @canadiancreed most Canadian whiskies are 100% whisky, I can only think of one that is not.
.@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"
