An after dinner treat on its own or along side your favorite decadent delight. Definitely caramel with that enhancing touch of salinity. I might serve this with a crème caramel or add it to my affogato!

Brass coloured and richly hued. Aromas of toffee and spices accented by a hint of sweetness. The palate offers up more hints of the icewine barrels by upping the game to include candy apples, nutmeg and caramel. An elegant finish.

Deep amber colour. Aromas of toffee, butterscotch and spices. More hints of sweet caramel and hints of tangerine and tree nuts on the palate. A relaxing and lengthy finish. The whisky's name is not just a play on Mr. Gretzky's sweater number but also reflects the 99 days spent i Cabernet Sauvignon casks.
