Whisky Review: Wiser’s Small Batch Canadian Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 30, 2010

Over the next several months, I plan to complete a review series of  Wiser’s Canadian Whiskies    I will start with a relatively new member to the Wiser’s portfolio, the Wiser’s Small Batch Canadian Whisky, and then I will wander through their whisky family, reviewing the Wiser’s Special Blend, The Wiser’s Deluxe, and the Wiser’s 18 Year Old in no particular order.  I will also complete a full review of a brand new Wiser’s Canadian Whisky, Wiser’s Legacy.   ( I have previously provided a first impression of the Legacy (click the link to read this first impression), and now that the Wiser’s Legacy  bottles will hit the store shelves soon it seems a good time to do this review series.)

An astute person may ask about the Wiser’s Red Letter Whisky, the recently named Canadian Whisky of the Year in the Jim Murray 2010 Whisky Bible,  but an even more astute person will realize that I reviewed the Red Letter last year in November. A second review so quickly is hardly necessary.  If you are interested,   The review for the Wiser’s Red Letter whisky can be found here.

I  confess that I look forward with great anticipation to this review series.  I have always enjoyed the Wiser’s Whisky brands and the chance to give the entire whisky family a good once over with my review system is an opportunity that I cannot resist.

Here is an excerpt from my first review for the Wiser’s Small batch Canadian Whisky:

“The whisky is soft and supple on the tongue with a richness that I do not encounter in the Canadian Whisky Category very often.  Hot oak spices tickle the tongue in a smooth delivery which carries flavours of  butterscotch, maple, and ripe fruit.  Corn and light rye flavours provide the foundation upon which  the sweeter flavours are carried….

As usual I have a few cocktail suggestions for this whisky. Enjoy the review.

Whisky Review: Wiser’s Red Letter Canadian Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 11, 2009

Wiser's Red LetterIn 1857  J.P Wiser began making whisky.  This whisky, known as Wiser’s Red Letter Rye, was a huge success and led to the companies original good fortunes both in Canada and the United states.  In 2007 Wiser’s celebrated the 150th anniversary of this success by making a special anniversary bottling of J.P. Wiser’s Original Red Letter Canadian Whisky.  Only 6000 bottles were produced, with all of the whiskey finished for an extra 150 days in virgin white oak casks.  This final finish was similar to the entire aging that the original whisky produced 150 years ago received.

Here is a link to my review of this spectacular whisky:
