This limited edition whisky celebrates Canada’s 2018 birthday and honors the 49th parallel’s 200th anniversary – the 5,525-mile undefended international border that separates Canada and the United States. The whisky is a blend of corn and rye whisky bottled at 43.4% abv, a nod to the strength of the whisky made by Canadian whisky barons back in the day. 16,000 bottles are exclusive to Canada.

Tasting Notes

"Caramel and floral spring blossoms on the nose with enough fruit to cover 5-9 servings a day. Classic Hiram Walker creamy caramel-corn balance with oak lumber and vanilla-soaked baking spices. The whisky ramps up mid-palate with a backyard firework show of rye spice that lays down flavor tariffs. The rye spice strolls into the finish with a flare of citrus zest. "
