Pike Creek 21yo als kanadischer Whisky des Jahres ausgezeichnet

Eine Liste weiterer Preisträger bei den 10th annual Canadian Whisky Awards finden Sie im Artikel

Kanadischer Whisky fristet bei uns ein gewissen Schattendasein – das mag nicht nur an den mangelnden Importen liegen, sondern auch daran, dass in Kanada die Regeln für Whisky deutlich lockerer gefasst sind als sonstwo, und dass daher das Geschmackserlebnis bei kanadischem Whisky, sagen wir mal: unerwartet sein kann.

Dennoch möchten wir diese Gattung auf Whiskyexperts nicht stiefmütterlich behandeln und bringen gerne immer wieder einmal News über die Abfüllungen aus dem Norden des nordamerikanischen Kontinents. Diesmal können wir über den Whisky des Jahres bei den 10. jährlichen kanadischen Whisky Awards berichten – es ist der Pike Creek 21yo geworden.
