This green label J.P. Wiser’s Rye is a replacement for a whisky released a few years ago under the same name. And it has changed. The distillery started by raising the rye content to 62% blending it with wheat and corn. This particular whisky is triple-barreled featuring distillates matured in used Canadian whisky, first-fill bourbon, and virgin oak casks. Finally, they’ve reset the ABV to 45%. Exclusive to the United States.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky is an all-you-can-eat rye bread buffet. The all-rye nose shifts to velvety wheat and vanilla icing on the palate with rye spices still in abundance. The oily and creamy texture of the whisky makes it tough to break long enough between sips to enjoy a bracing clean finish where the rye spices get a chance to pop one last time."
