J.P. Wiser's 23 year old Cask Strength Blended, 64.3%

Price: $113 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

This long-aged blend of all-rye and all-corn whiskies celebrates J.P. Wiser's belief that great whisky can't be rushed. A dry nose with rye spices and overripe pears is quite complex. The palate, sweet and somewhat drying, suddenly shows strong ripe cherry notes, then pipe tobacco, cigar box, lingering heat, medium weight, gorgeous woody notes, and strong peppery spices. Hints of rye spices punctuate a long, hot, and fruity finish. 150 CAD
