There is also plenty of white fruit especially pear. Has some similarities to those lovely Sauternes wines. You mention that it is 200ml and metric started showing in '79-'80 but usually with fluid ounces also displayed through about '84. The Peoria Hiram Walker distillery stopped distilling whiskey in '72 so maybe they were still filling bottles with Peoria distilled into the early and mid 80's as this was the glut era. After Peoria it is reported that distilling was done for short while at Heaven Hill and then Barton. Just because the label says what it says doesn't mean it was distilled in Peoria.
