Gooderham & Worts Little Trinity 17 Year Old

Nose: Floral and slightly nutty. Dried apricot, caramelized pecan, hazelnut, menthol, apple, and touches of cilantro, lime, and jalapeño. A splash of water reveals cloves and sandalwood.


Palate: Peppery on arrival, with a syrupy texture. That menthol note carries on to the palate, along with honey, cereal, ginger, orange peel, and soft vegetal notes.


Finish: Medium length. There’s lingering spiciness, reminiscent of strong spearmint. Some toffee-like bitterness creeps in near the end.


Final Thought: When I first opened the bottle, it was a bit lackluster. I smelled and tasted mostly sweetness. So I let it sit on the shelf for about 4 months and revisited it recently. Oh, air works wonders! It’s got more character. All these subtle flavors come through. While it’s not very complex, it has some interesting developments. And personally, I don’t like vegetal notes in a whisky. But somehow, they’re well integrated and palatable in this one. If you’ve never tried Canadian whisky, this is a good one to start with 🥃


Girl with Cask Strength Score: 87/100.
