  1. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    my favourite rye to date
    • Nose
      Some kind of banana split I'm thinking, with vanilla cream and maraschino cherries. Orange and melon boiled sweets joining in too, and a bunch of spearmint. Then there are the spices, banana bread spices, with walnuts.
    • Taste
      Delivered with a lot of spice, maraschino cherries, blood orange boiled sweets - if such a thing exists, more rye spices, and some nice buttery and floral notes (daffodils?) in the finish (medium)

    Mint candy first then turn to a Guava candy! On the nose and the palate. Also found this flavour but milder on whistlepig 10 and collingwood 21. Very special! A beautiful tropical fruit cocktail, full of sweet island flavours. Remind me of the past Caribbean vocation. Need to open for a week in advance to taste the best of it.

    Tasted back in late 2018 prior to Wiser's 2nd Northern Border Rare Collection release in the Canadian market. This is an 11 year old Canadian rye whiskey aged entirely in new American oak and bottled at cask strength.

    Colour: Light amber, darker then the 12 year

    Nose: Brown sugar, allspice, clove, vanilla cream, toffee, sea salt, woodspice, cherry peel

    Palate: Molasses, cocoa, vanilla, lemon curd, orange, fresh cherry, strong oak tannins, ryespice, grass, clove

    Finish: Long with spices, cherry fruit salad and clove

    Like with the 12 Year Cask Strength this one is a beast of a rye. While the 12 Year was more of a spice forward dram this one has a really thick molasses quality like an old Guyana rum. The finish I'd say is stronger then the 12 as well and the proof definitely helps with that. Overall I'd say it’s a notable improvement from the 12 year in some categories but I think it depends based on the individual who'd want more of a thicker bodied rye then a spicier rye because this one is definitely the former. With water the spices open up more into what I saw in the 12 Year but with definitely more thickness in the body from the molasses and caramel and with the finish which is crazy long. I should note though that this rye gets strong notes of dill after some time in the bottle which some may not be a fan of, so buyer beware.

    Either way still a great Canadian whiskey. We need more CS stuff from Canada to show what this country's output can offer.
