Default "Canadian Lyric" cocktail?

According to McGee _On Food and Cooking_ (second edition), in the
section "American and Canadian Whiskeys":

North American whiskeys are produced mainly from the New World's
indigenous grain, maize.

[...stuff about bourbon, which is made mainly from maize...]

Canadian whiskeys are among the mildest and most delicate of the
spirits made from grains. They are a blend of a light-flavored
column-distilled grain whiskey with small amounts of strongers
whiskeys. They can also include wines, rum, and brandy, up to 9% of
the blend. They're aged a minimum of three years in used oak casks.

Context Away wonders what the oak casks were used for, and
why Dr. Pepper only comes in cans and bottles.

Whiskey is aged in wood barrels: preferably those used
earlier for storing such wines as bordeaux and sherry.
The practice may have begun in the 18th century for
reasons of economy: second-hand French or Portuguese
barrels (first used to transport wine to Britain in bulk) were
cheaper than new barrels.

Aging in wood is desirable since new whiskey is unfit
to drink after a single run through the still. It becomes
palatable after some years' aging and whiskey makers
discovered that used barrels (soaked earlier with wine)
make the spirit smoother without altering its flavour.
(Aware of this, moonshine distillers often distil their
product twice in order to make it drinkable immediately;
this succeeds at the price of reduced volume.)

Bottlers of flavoured soda water do not encounter this
because their product does not improve with age,
like wines and spirits.

Wikipedia can NOT be wrong:

Well, it can be wrong, but it is self-correcting. Usually.

Maybe in Canada they do this, but,IIRC, in the US, whiskey has to be
put in new barrels that have been charred on the inside.

Ghost of Christmas past?

which is some sort of Engerlish tradition that I'd never

Hmm. Not sure about Christmas, but murder is as popular in TV
drama now as it was in novels and plays when Shepherd Mead wrote "How
to Live like a Lord".




Not . . . "How to Die Like the Lord" . . . ?

Sort of like being a tippler, yes?

"Danked," the past participle of "dank", is used to refer to someone
who replies to his own post on an online forum posing as another person
(see "Internet sock puppet") but forgetting to change his username . . . .
This was an act of stupidity meriting a name of its own, and because the hapless
contributor's username was Danks, the term "dank" or "danked" emerged.
