Alberta Springs Black Label Whisky
A full-bodied rye blend, it is aged for ten years then rebarrelled after blending for an additional marriage of flavours. It pours a brilliant gold colour and offers aromas of toasty grain with a touch of spicy rye. The palate is soft with vanilla, toffee and light spice flavours followed by smooth finish.

Alberta Premium Whisky
The authentic flavour of prairie rye and careful barrel ageing gives this whisky a golden amber colour and an aromatic sweet bouquet of banana, toffee, and light spice. The flavour is mellow and slightly smoky with a lively woody edge on a medium weight palate that finishes with a hint of hot cinnamon spice.

John Barr Scotch Whiskey
The John Barr blend was created for the UK market in the 1970s to imitate the recently withdrawn Johnnie Walker Red Label [see below]. So desperate was its owner, DCL, to recover the lost sales from one of its best-selling brands that the original John Barr bottle even mimicked the square-shape made so famous by its predecessor. Unfortunately, it was not a popular dram and was not highly regarded. Despite a change of ownership, John Barr continues to reflect the brand’s early imitation of Johnnie Walker. Expressions now available include John Barr Finest (red label) – a standard blend – and John Barr Reserve (black label), a smoky blend that contains 40 constituent whiskies including Speyside and Highland malts up to 15 years old.

Each individual whisky used in the blend has matured for many years in oak casks to achieve a smooth flavour. ""The Dundee"" will appeal to those who appreciate the art of a wonderfully balanced blend."
Johnnie Walker Double Black
Johnnie Walker Double Black is Johnnie Walker® Black Label® amplified, taking its intensity to unexplored territory. Hand-picked whiskies that are defined by notes of smoldering charcoal, including more Islay malts, are chosen for their smoky profile. Then once matured in heavily-charred oak casks, the result is not only a smokier blend, but an unquestionably smooth liquid as well.

Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky
Named after one of the most famous and efficient ‘clipper ships’ from Britain, the Cutty Sark whisky brand has been one of the oldest and enduring Scotch whisky brands. Loyal fans of the Cutty Sark vouch by its smooth taste, while some aren’t fans but there is no denying the popularity of Cutty Sark, a fine blended whisky. Cutty Sark prides itself on their whisky’s rebellious nature that stems from its entry into the market back in the day, and how the brand did not play by the rules. Lighter in color and in taste, the Cutty Sark is a beautiful example of a cult brand that is vociferously defended by its lovers.
