J.P. Wiser's 23 Year Cask Strength Blend
J.P. Wiser's // Ontario, Canada
J.P. Wiser's 23 Year Cask Strength Blend celebrates Master Blender Dr. Don Livermore’s twenty-third anniversary at Hiram-Walker distillery. To mark the occasion, the J.P. Wiser's brand is releasing its first cask-strength whisky blend. The good doctor pulled individual casks of twenty-three-year-old rye and corn whisky, some of them at 50%, other at 70% then blended them. The final strength clocked in at 64.3%. Available in Canada and the US in limited quantities. This whisky is part of Corby’s 2019 Craft Rare Range Series.
CanadianDISTILLED IN CANADA AND AGED IN BARRELS FOR AT LEAST THREE YEARS; OFTEN (BUT NOT ALWAYS) CANADIAN WHISKIES ARE BLENDS OF CORN, BARLEY, AND RYE WHISKIES WHICH WERE DISTILLED AND MATURED SEPARATELY. TRADITIONALLY, CANADIAN WHISKEY IS CALLED “RYE”, ALTHOUGH NO MINIMUM PERCENTAGE OF RYE-GRAIN WHISKY IS REQUIRED IN A BLEND.
"Dr. Don Livermore is bench pressing some heavy oak flavor weight for this whisky. Creamy vanilla and caramel grace the nose with maple sugars, leather and black pepper. On the palate, it’s every Hiram-Walker flavor under the sun compressed into a body-hugging structure. Features include ripe cherry, almonds, cloves and solar flares of chest warming rye spice. For a cask strength whisky, the heat has a controlled warmth. All of this depth carries into a snug finish that sizzles with cinnamon, vanilla, dry lumber and citrus zest."
