The Unique Characteristics of Canadian Whiskey

Canadian whiskey is different from American straight whiskeys because of the way it is produced. Canadian distillers use a process called “grain separation” which involves mashing, fermenting, distilling, and aging each type of grain separately. This process allows the distiller to control the flavor of each grain more precisely and create a unique flavor profile for their whisky. The finished whiskies are then blended together to create a smooth, balanced taste. As a result, Canadian whisky has a distinct flavor that sets it apart from other types of whiskey.
