Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender at Hiram Walker, created this whisky as a nod to Wiser’s rye heritage using modern techniques. This Canadian whisky has two types of rye distillate. The first is distilled in a copper column-still and then is pot-distilled to concentrate rye flavor profiles. It’s then blended with a second rye that’s been traditionally distilled with a copper pot-still. The whiskies are aged four to nine years and bottled at 43.4% abv. For the moment, available only in Canada.

Tasting Notes

"Butterscotch sauce is the first aroma to tickle your nose before toasted wood surges and draws you in for a taste. Floral honey and pickle brine detonate up front leaving the mouth tingling. A long spice bomb finish weaves honey in and out of a finger-licking-good rye spice with that oh-so-Canadian citrus pith. Slap a pair of hockey skates on this whisky, it’s ready and itching to get into the game."
