J.P. Wiser's Seasoned Oak
J.P. Wiser's // Ontario, Canada
This 19-year-old whisky is the J.P. Wiser’s Rare Cask Series release for 2018. The entire blend spent an unspecified time ageing in barrels sourced from Canton Cooperage in Kentucky. The staves were seasoned under the sun for 4 years before constructing the barrels for this release. J.P. Wiser’s Seasoned Oak is bottled at 48% abv to match the 48 months the wood spent sunbathing. 6,000 bottles are exclusive to Ontario.

"Dr Don Livermore has built a whisky thrill ride with these barrel staves. Seasoned Oak plunges through an unyielding layer of flavors: creamy vanilla fudge, sour rye spice, nutmeg and a Loop the Loop of fruity stone fruits, cherries and cloves. A Matterhorn of spicy rye accents toasted oak with a finish that power surges highlights of black pepper and citrus never letting you off. Instead, the whisky pulls your palate back onto the lift hill."
