Alberta Premium, 40%

Price: $20 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

When high-rye whisky seemed doomed, some hard-bit fans longed to taste a simple mixer called Alberta Premium. With few ryes to compare, reviewers assessed this all-rye grain whisky generously. Today, with rye whisky booming and rye's flavor diversity understood, opinions are more informed. Enjoy the caramels, mild wood, light peppery rye spices, and ginger of thisold-style 100% rye by a campfire or in a Highball. (Canada only) $27 CAD
