WINDSOR, Ontario, Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Canadian Club®, an iconic whisky that has propelled the Canadian whisky category to fame for more than 150 years, is proud to announce the second release within the CC Chronicles™/MC premium release series: Canadian Club® 42 Year Old. The limited-edition expression, also known as Issue No. 2: The Dock Man, celebrates the dock worker of years past who consistently delivered quality whisky to bar owners and drinkers when counterfeit whisky ran rampant during the Prohibition era.
Batched and barreled more than four decades ago, Canadian Club 42 Year Old is masterfully blended to showcase robust rye spice, delicate notes of brown sugar and baking spices to create an exceptionally rich, smooth taste. As a result, this exquisite marque leaves fans with the complex, yet rich flavor profile Canadian Club is best known for.
"At Canadian Club, we pride ourselves on our commitment to consistently crafting superior Canadian whisky," Global Whisky Ambassador Tish Harcus said. "For more than 150 years, we've consistently delivered quality expressions to whisky drinkers, and the release of Canadian Club 42 Year Old continues this tradition. Following the success of our first CC Chronicles release last year, we're excited to unveil another premium, distinctive whisky that endures the test of time."
Launched in 2018, CC Chronicles is a series of premium, limited-edition expressions created to celebrate the brand's rich history and commitment to producing authentic whisky. Each issue within the Chronicles will represent an iconic moment in Canadian Club's rich history. The series launched with the release of Canadian Club® 41 Year Old, celebrating the Water of Windsor, which was named Canadian Whisky of the Year in the 2019 Jim Murray Whisky Bible. Canadian Club 42 Year Old marks the second release within the series.
