Wayne Gretzky No. 99 Ninety Nine Proof Canadian Whisky
Wayne Gretzky // Ontario, Canada
This third whisky release from the Wayne Gretzky Distillery is a premium small batch. 100% Ontario malted rye, unmalted rye and corn whiskies were individually mashed and distilled then aged in American oak barrels. The whisky is then finished for at least one hundred days in cabernet sauvignon barrels sourced from the Gretzky winery. Exclusive to Canada.

"A close-knit nose of caramel, rum brown sugar, floral cloves, and dried fruit are released slowly with fresh baked rye bread. The flavors from the nose support each other where dry oak on the palate offers contrast to the caramel notes. The finish has a peppery rye bite pulling in pith and slight oak tannins. This is a fully loaded and sturdy whisky."
