J.P. Wiser's Seven Rebels
J.P. Wiser's // Ontario, Canada
Seven Rebels is part of the J.P. Wiser's Rare Cask Series. The whisky pays tribute to Canadian whisky pioneers: Wiser, Corby, Hiram Walker, Gooderham, Worts, Seagram and Hatch. Corn, rye, wheat, rye malt and barley malt were aged or finished in a combination of ex-bourbon, virgin oak and Speyside malt casks. A select number of barrels were then enhanced with charred oak inserts to boost the whisky's smokiness ad spice. Exclusive to British Columbia.

"This Canadian blend charges right out of the gate with a solid nose rich with cinnamon, cloves and ginger balanced with stone fruits, vanilla, icing sugar and toasted oak. Fresh-cut lumber on the palate blends fluently with bourbon-like fruits, seared peppers and a grassy rye twang — that rye flash parts way for a tower of smoked lumber and dried cherries. Complex, snug and layered, this is a stylish giant whisky."
