Canadian whiskies are often made from maize (corn), but rye and other grains are also used.
Canadian whiskies have a light and soft taste. You can also discern notes of fruits, grain and light spices in them.
Canadian whiskies are served in mixed drinks, as digestifs, with a dash of water and on the rocks.
Enjoying whisky with soda water or a soft drink is common all over the world. Whiskey on the rocks is so cold it can numb your taste buds, but it is still the favourite of many people.
Canadian whisky is served at room temperature.
The flavour of Canadian whisky can be strengthened by adding a small amount of port, bourbon or rum.
