It was the clean classic label design that made me buy the bottle of Michel Couvreur whisky more than anything. A cream label with a beautiful cursive font and a red wax seal.  The label is attached over 2 sides of the square bottle to ensure the corner of the bottle is presented on the shelf.  This feature made it stand out in between other square and round bottled and I noticed it immediately.  I have never heard the name or seen anything on this release before.

While we were there, Canada celebrated its 150th birthday.  On the 1st of July, there were celebrations and flags every where.  It was amazing.

My favourite cousin lives there, so it was a wonderful opportunity to spend time with him.   John planned on completing his climbs and then fly out to Vancouver as well to spend some family time in Canada.
