Oh man. Forty Creek – a blast from the past.  You might be asking, dude, why? Why? WHY? It has at least three strikes: “Canadian Whisky” (which as we know is a moniker with some serious credibility issues), twist-off top, “premium” in the name.

This was Dan’s go-to whisky for forever before we started this site.  This was what we drank at Dan’s place, at parties, etc, so we thought it would be… informative? Interesting? To come back to it with more experienced palates and give it a proper going over.
