    Aren't they allowed to add like 9% of anything and not declare it. Not liking my rye being masked by maple syrup flavouring

    That's why the lower-proof components of the blends exist, to provide flavor while still having the overall blend be light and balanced. How much of those flavoring whiskies are in the blend varies, and better bottles tend to have more. But not all Canadian whisky is distilled to high proof.

    Canadian whisky makes the best Manhattans.

    Canadian whisky is distilled at too high a proof to retain the necessary congeners to keep those complex aromas and flavors. It takes more than barrels and aging although I do applaud the 3 tear aging requirement.

    Hmm, nothing about Seagram's shutting down the best selling bourbon in America (Four Roses) so that they could boost their Canadian whiskey?
