Alberta Rye Dark Batch

This one of those whiskies that I like and would choose even though I know there are "better" whiskies out there because of how I found it.  I was given a mini bottle while playing golf on a perfect day in Las Vegas and I really enoyed the day, the company and the whiskey.  The, nose is subtle with some vanilla and spices and a little cafe latte.  The taste is dry and fruity (sherry influence is clear) with cocoa and raisins and even a little creamy though some more grainy spirit notes push through.  The finish is spicy with pepper, milk chocolate and quite long.
