Vibrant amber with ruby red reflections. Rich decadent aromas of brown sugar and vanilla on the bouquet with notes of sweet caramel, toffee, and warm rye spice, supported by mature oak, green apple, island spice, brown sugar and molasses. The palate is well-balanced mix of dried fruits, vanilla and toffee. A pleasant port finish, warm, soft and long-lasting.

In 1832, an Englishman named Henry Corby emigrated to Belleville, Ontario (he was only 26 years old at the time). After arriving in Canada, Corby opened up a bakery and began supplying bread and other grains to the local militia. Within a few years, Corby was shipping his excess grains to Kingston, where they were sold to other bakeries and restaurants. After purchasing a gristmill in 1855 (a gristmill grinds grains into flour), Corby began distilling his excess grains into whisky and opened the doors to Corby Distillery in 1859. This rum-finished whisky is a unique Canadian whisky that’s a departure from Pike Creeks signature spirit. It starts with a blend of soft double-column distilled corn and some once-column distilled rye that provides the base: balanced flavors of sweet caramel and toffee with warm rye spice, mature oak, and a touch of green apple. After maturing for 10 years in ex-bourbon barrels, it’s then finished in rum casks to bring out notes of island spices, brown sugar, and molasses. Soft and light-style.
