Post Passover Whisky: Wiser’s Legacy

22 April 2014 Written by:

So Passover is over, and whisky season is back on. This holiday was a bit different than previous years – not much rest, as we moved house in the middle of the holiday (not that a holiday with small kids is any rest either, but this was more physical with moving, carrying stuff and of course, relocating all the whisky bottles samples etc. to their new dedicated room [yay]). So today’s whisky post is a Canadian whiskey. I am not going to bore you with a lot of details, if you’re interested you can check out Davin’s post on his Excellent blog.

Wiser’s Legacy , 44.8% abv, $ 49.95 (LCBO)wisers-legacy

Nose: Lovely sweet and  spicy rye notes , it’s cinnamon and mint then some lilac blossom , brine and pickle water. Like the residue of pickled gherkins. Sawdust.

Palate: Rye , sugar and  pepper. Lovely sweet base also with some sugars and dried dates. Pepper mint chewing gum. Then off to sweet dried fruit. Again.

Finish: Plum jam. Pepper and sawdust.

Highly enjoyable stuff, sweet, spicy and very intersting. At that price (too bad only in Canada) it’s a no brainer.

Score: 88/100

Many thanks to Davin D.K for sharing this sample.

    I read this, and then looked at Davin’s review and one from the Whisky Bible and went to find a bottle. In the US (Ohio) at this moment it is discounted to $33/bottle – so I bought a couple. Haven’t tried it yet…but thanks for the review.
