FIVE SAZERAC CANADIAN WHISKIES HIGHLY COMMENDED AT 2019 ULTIMATE SPIRITS CHALLENGE

MONTREAL (June 26, 2019) – The Ultimate Spirits Challenge, known for its judging methodology which raised the standard for competitive beverage evaluation, recognized five of Sazerac’s Canadian whiskies, highly recommending one, and awarding two as “Great Values” at the 2019 competition.

Royal Z1eY7uvg

Royal Canadian Small Batch Blended Canadian Whisky awarded Great Value, scored 90, and was deemed “Excellent, Highly Recommended.” Tasting notes: “Richly spiced nose with deep, sultry hints of maple syrup, pie tobacco, straw, and campfire smoke.”

Rich pYw5cQbw

Rich & Rare Reserve Canadian Blended Whisky also awarded Great Value, scored 88, and received a “Very Good, Strong Recommendation.” Extracts from the tasting notes: “Lean and fresh on the palate the whisky leads with oatmeal milk, vanilla, and baked pear flavors to come through.”

Caribou j6RD3M3g

Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky scored 88, receiving a “Very Good, Strong Recommendation.” Tasting notes: “A brooding nose with aromas of orange bitters and espresso is buoyed by a firm oak presence. What follows on the palate harkens to bourbon with an injection of rye complexity, bringing subtle clove and anise spice alongside creme brulee and bananas foster. Casually complex.”

High River DxDzmI3w

High River Canadian Whisky scored 87, receiving a “Very Good, Strong Recommendation.” Tasting notes: “A subtle and demure nose gives way to a medium-bodied whisky full of flavors of buttered biscuit, caramelized sugar, and vanilla bean. The finish is medium-long and consistent, making this an everyday whisky for may applications.”

Legacy mY87422B

Legacy Whisky scored 86, receiving a “Very Good, Strong Recommendation.” Tasting notes: “has a rich nose of leather, tobacco, and vanilla aromas. Flavors are exceptionally well-balanced between vanilla bean, cinnamon baked apples, lavender, honeycomb, and cocoa powder. The finish ups the complexity with a lingering peppercorn spice.”

During the 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge each product was evaluated by blind tasting panels in multi-stage assessments to remove any inherent or individual bias. Complete results of the 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge can be found at https://www.ultimate-beverage.com/
