J.P. Wiser’s NHL Alumni Whisky Series

I was able to try each of these through the Toronto Whisky Society, which was given the chance to try them by Wiser’s themselves. Special commemorative editions of things, especially mashups of two different fandoms, are always something to question before buying: Why are you buying it? For the?Wiser’s Alumni Whisky Series, you could tell me you purchased any of these to go on a… Continue reading J.P. Wiser’s NHL Alumni Whisky Series

2019 Northern Border Collection Rare Range Tasting

Many of our members have been fans of the Northern Border Collection all the way back to when it was just a twinkle in Dr. Don Livermore’s eye, and we’ve had the good fortune to try each of the rare range releases over the past three years. For the inaugural line-up, we had Dave Mitton come in and introduce them to us. Last year, we … Continue reading 2019 Northern Border Collection Rare Range Tasting

J.P. Wiser’s NHL Alumni Series

We’re going to be honest here… when we first saw the J.P. Wiser’s Alumni Series get released, we assumed it was simply a marketing gimmick that would in all likelihood take existing whiskies and re-brand then with famous players’ names to up-sell the hockey fan market.

J.P. Wiser’s 19 Seasoned Oak

Thanks to Corby for supplying a sample to me for this review. Recently there’s been some nice Canadian whiskies coming out, which as a Canadian whisky fan I’m particularly proud of, as I was born here and therefore due to the transitive property, I’m great too. Joking aside, I am happy for the idea of new and better Canadian whiskies. The Wiser’s Rare Cask series… Continue reading J.P. Wiser’s 19 Seasoned Oak
