Black Fox Single Barrel Wheat Whisky

I’d like to thank Black Fox Farm & Distillery for sending this bottles to the Toronto Whisky Society. Black Fox Farm & Distillery is a farm in Saskatchewan that, from what I’m seeing, originally specialized in flowers. My knowledge of flowers goes so far as to be able to identify their colour, if the mix is pleasing to me, and the specifics of how some of the more… Continue reading Black Fox Single Barrel Wheat Whisky

Wiser’s One Fifty

I’d like to thank Wiser’s for sending this bottles to the Toronto Whisky Society. Wiser’s One Fifty is a special bottling of Wiser’s. It was released for the 150th year of Canada being a country… ruled by European’s. Before that it goes for 10,000 some odd years, and even before that the fish had it. But it’s 150 years of this country I call home being called that. We… Continue reading Wiser’s One Fifty

Caldera Hurricane #5

I’d like to thank Caldera Distilling for sending this bottles to the Toronto Whisky Society. Caldera Distilling is located in the historical shipbuilding community of River John, Nova Scotia. For those of you who aren’t up on the happenings of fishing in that area, it’s gone down in recent years, due to overfishing. Also the demand for clippers isn’t that high anymore, so they’ve gone looking for new… Continue reading Caldera Hurricane #5

Highwood Distillers Ninety 5 & Ninety 20

I’d like to thank Highwood Distillers for sending these bottles to the Toronto Whisky Society. For some people, Highwood Distillers will sound familiar, as I’ve reviewed some of their whiskies before. And if you’ve noticed, I haven’t been singing their praises. However I don’t think that’s their point. Canadian whisky became popular because people, at one point, wanted lighter, smoother flavours. And the distillers that followed those paths… Continue reading Highwood Distillers Ninety 5 & Ninety 20

Last Mountain 100% Wheat Whisky Single Cask

I’d like to thank Last Mountain Distillery for sending these bottles to the Toronto Whisky Society. Last Mountain Distillery is Saskatchewan’s first micro distillery. Started in 2010 by Colin and Meredith Schmidt, they found no unique Saskatchewan spirits. At all. As Colin is a Regina boy (that’s not a sexual term, it’s a place in Saskatchewan, where such a sexual comment is not allowed), he felt this needed… Continue reading Last Mountain 100% Wheat Whisky Single Cask

Laird of Finitry Lot 4

Thank you to /u/Devoz for the samples of this one, and thank you to the Toronto Whisky Society for including this in the tasting (so that I may enjoy it). Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery is Western Canada’s oldest craft distillery. Wait a second. Before you get all excited, remember we’re talking about Canada. You know, the place that brought you “light whiskies because the market wants them”, “oops we… Continue reading Laird of Finitry Lot 4

Shelter Point Artisanal Single Malt & Shelter Point Cask Strength

I’d like to thank Shelter Point for sending these bottles to the Toronto Whisky Society. Shelter Point Distiller is located on Vancouver Island. They pride themselves on being an artisanal distillery, and push for the idea of quality over quantity. They source locally, being one of only a handful of distilleries that grow their own barley and distill on the same site. The only thing that isn’t sourced… Continue reading Shelter Point Artisanal Single Malt & Shelter Point Cask Strength
