J.P. Wiser's and the NHL Alumni Association (NHLAA) have partnered to create a lineup of new whiskies. Each one has a unique blend designed to pair with the playing styles of each hockey player honored with a bottle. Paul Coffey’s whisky is bottled at 48% ABV to match his record breaking season of 48 goals by a defenseman. It is aged for 7 years to pay homage to his #77 jersey . Part of the proceeds from sales will be donated to NHLAA to support their philanthropic ambitions. Exclusive to Canada.

Tasting Notes

"A high-octane wakeup call of corn grain, caramel, vanilla and maple sugar are found on this whisky’s stylish nose. A very light char on the palate sets up traditional bourbon-like baking spices and lightly refined oak tannins. Late palate maple syrup-soaked corn bread and vanilla are heated by rye baking spices on the finish. All the flavors are controlled and never go offside."
