This 35-year-old whisky is part of the 2017 Northern Borders Rare Collection drawn from some of the oldest Hiram Walker bonds. It’s a traditional Canadian whisky composed of corn whisky aged in ex-bourbon barrels blended with column and pot still rye aged in virgin oak barrels. Bottled at 50% alcohol. Limited availability in Canada with a very limited allocation in Europe and the US.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky captures everything that could go right in an oak barrel. Creamy, rich and soft with a spicy frame. Beautiful caramel apple tones unite with the antique wood. Yet the years in oak don’t overpower like the business end of a Louisville Slugger. Rather it hugs you. The entire experience from nose to finish glows like a bright star. It may even signal the Three Wise Men to show up with gifts."
