Martell Blue Swift Brings A Beautifully Complex Warmth To My Heart

What keeps me warm on a winter’s night? A glass of Martell Blue Swift The creation of the Martell brand goes back 300 years. A heritage that is two times the age of the independence of Canada. Martell is the oldest of the great Cognac houses passed down throughout the Martell family. With a rich history comes the luxury of time, time to experiment, time to get the recipe right. Time to see how the grapes age, how they behave when they percolate in the barrels and how everything distills and steeps together to make the consistent, strong flavour of[Read More]

Carving A Ford Edge ST Around Cayuga Speedway

Driving a Ford Edge ST is a fun experience, but driving the Ford Edge ST around Cayuga Speedway in Cayuga, ON, is a whole different experience. You are probably used to getting into the car, strapping on a seat belt, hitting the road and going about your day. When you head to Cayuga, you are starting off the day with a racing helmet on. As soon as you put on the helmet, it becomes all business. It’s very seldom that you can enjoy an SUV to the fullest. Some take their SUV offroad, but I prefer taking it on the[Read More]

Merrill House Is A Beautiful Boutique Hotel In Prince Edward County

A drive out to Prince Edward County starts with the idea of relaxation in mind first when you make the decision to go.

Which previously only consisted of a shallow, yet an enjoyable trip to the[Read More]

Only those who have been to the Glenmorangie production facility have seen the product of both strong traditions and educational experimentation.

Carving Through Tofino’s Coastline In A 2019 Lincoln Nautilus

Driving in Canada can be spectacular. I often forget just how beautiful the terrain and nature is. The winding roads, mountainous areas, coastal views and elevations from straightforward to curvy in every way. British Columbia is a great testing ground for a car. You have everything from extreme natural structures and landscape and some of the smoothest roads in Canada. I was flown out to British Columbia to try the different personalities of Tofino’s roads. Everything from cliffside paths, forest surrounded two-lane pathways, to logging roads and beach-side sand-covered asphalt. To tackle this challenge, we drove the new, and newly[Read More]
