J.P. Wiser's Rye. Image courtesy Corby Distilleries/Pernod Ricard USA.This Canadian classic was updated in 2013 by Wiser’s Master Blender Dr. Don Livermore, and the result is a whisky with a smooth nose featuring subtle touches of allspice, clove, and black pepper with hints of honey, toasted oak, and caramel candy. The taste has a good balance of spices consistent with the nose and balanced by honey and oak notes underneath. The finish is long and spicy with clove and black pepper notes balanced by honey, oak, and caramel candy. Consistent, simple, and good. (January, 2014)
