whisky 3 ways wine and spirits calgary


From creamy to refined, there’s a whisky for every taste.  Here are 3 ways to enjoy

1. THE BALVENIE DOUBLE WOOD SINGLE MALT SCOTCH, AGED 12 YEARS

LOOK Golden colour.
TASTE Halfway during the maturation process, this whisky is transferred from a traditional oak cask to a European oak sherry cask, resulting in a lingering
sweetness mixed with spices like cinnamon and clove.
BEST FOR Sipping straight or with a drop of water.

2.  SORTILÈGE MAPLE CREAM

LOOK Creamy, pale brown.
TASTE Farm fresh dairy, blended with maple syrup and Canadian whisky result in an indulgent after dinner drink that is silky smooth on the palate, with a hint of warmth.
BEST FOR This Canadian made product makes a perfect gift. Sip on the rocks, or as an ingredient in a Canadian-Irish coffee.

3.  SPICEBOX PUMPKIN SPICED WHISKY

LOOK A soft orange colour gives way to intense spice.
TASTE Lingering on the tongue are notes of holiday spice: cardamon, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, vanilla and butterscotch.
BEST FOR This whisky is well suited to winter cocktails, or for use in holiday baking – think pumpkin pie crème carmel.
