In less than a year, Canadians have shown a renewed interest in Canadian whisky. It’s pretty easy to see why – there have been great strides by the distilleries to produce premium whisky products at prices consumers can afford. One of the latest to hit store shelves is Alberta Premium Dark Horse.
It’s time to forget about the days of your grandparents rye-whiskies that burned and left a bitter after-taste. The new Dark Horse is refined with flavours of vanilla, smoke, sweet oak and savoury dried fruit including plum and dried currant.
Dark Horse is made in Canada, for Canada, and with 100% Canadian prairie rye grain. It is blended at a 45% strength in small batches after aging in handpicked, heavily charred white oak barrels. The rich, almost burgundy colour shimmers through the classic burboun style bottle.
“Alberta Premium Dark Horse is one of the richest tasting Canadian whiskies with some of the highest barrel ageing extractives available on shelf,” says Dan Tullio, Canadian Whisky Master Ambassador, Beam Canada Inc. “Tasting Dark Horse, you experience a horseshoe-shaped pattern on the tongue with tanginess and spice on the sides and sweetness on the tip, with a deliciously smooth, long finish.
Alberta Premium Dark Horse 750ml bottles is a new permanent listing on whisky shelves across Canada: Alberta ($28.99)British Columbia ($28.99), Manitoba ($29.99), Nova Scotia ($29.99), New Brunswick ($29.99), Ontario ($29.95), and Saskatchewan ($31.95).
