Spicy, fruity, and light, this is a well-priced Canadian treat.

Clear light rye spices show on the nose, with raisins and dried orange peel from the port barrels. It is surprisingly light on the palate, leading with academia nuts and almonds, dried fruit – orange peel, cranberries, raisins, and black pepper. There is barely a bite, with an ABV of just 40, with the pepper lingering.
