J.P. Wiser's Alumni Whisky Series Darryl Sittler
J.P. Wiser's // Ontario, Canada
J.P. Wiser's and the NHL Alumni Association (NHLAA) have partnered to create a lineup of new whiskies. Each one is a unique blend designed to pair with the playing styles of each hockey player honored with a bottle. Darryl Sittler’s 10-year old four grain whisky is an homage to his record breaking 10-point game. The blend contains 6 percent rye for his six goals and four percent wheat whisky for his four assists. Part of the proceeds from sales will be donated to NHLAA to support their philanthropic ambitions. Exclusive to Canada.

"A versatile and tight blend of peppery floral spices and rich dried fruits on the nose with vanilla, citrus peel and toffee. The milky palate burst early into a fireball of rye and earthy hot pepper spice quickly zigzagging into woven grain cereals. The nose’s dark fruits and black pepper skate through a long spicy finish accentuated by bittersweet chocolate."
