Whether you’re a big fan of everything Canadian from cold weather and maple syrup to hockey or don’t know anything about our friendly neighbors in the north, one thing is certain: Canadian whisky should not be skipped.

Take a look below at our list of some of the best Canadian whisky brands available for your enjoyment.
For those looking for an expensive whiskey to brighten up a party or for anyone seeking an easy, accessible, and smooth everyday after-dinner drink, Canadian whisky is the way to go. From oak barrel-aged fruity whiskey to Manhattans made with Canadian Club 100% Rye, Canadian whisky is both diverse and delicious, leaving you and your whiskey-drinking guests satiated and satisfied.
If you can, it might be beneficial to check with local stores or bars to see if there are any tastings being held. Being able to compare and contrast these flavors would be where you can really note the flavor profile and distinctions between the drinks. However, if you aren’t able to do something like that, just take it slow and let the flavors of the whiskey of your choice take you where it will.
