Whisky Reviews for Seagram's Pedigree

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Unique whiskey from a time when it still was possible to produce 'Straight Bourbon' Whiskey in Canada. Keep in mind that this whisky was distilled and bottled (in Seagram's famous and now defunct Waterloo distillery) during prohibition in the U.S. Cross tasting with a Canadian Club 1929 which was bottled in the same year. Tasted together with St. Pauli. Try to purchase this miniature as well. Its so much fun to taste!
    • Nose
      The nose starts very dusty and, as St Pauli would say, husky. Lots, and I really mean, lots of beeswax, shoe polish and dried apricots. Burlap sacks with just harvested onions. But also associations of burnt wood, parafine and diesel oil. Later on more on old leather and cigar boxes.
    • Taste
      Very astringent with pine wood, unmalted barley and chaff. Quite a lot of resin. Touch of sandal wood and gingerbread. Bitter-cofffee and hickory as well. Even some marmite. Spices of carraway and clove. Juniper berries at the background.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Ginger. Cinnamon. Menthol at the end. Unnecessary to mention that the profile of this old Canadian produced (!)bourbon is something I have never come accross earlier. Pprobably very old-skool but also very exciting.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This is an extremely characteristic and beautiful whiskey, which you unfortunately will not encounter anymore. Despite being very raw and dirty, the balance is not disturbed and does not come across as monotonous. There is enough space for fruit and herbs to get enough out of it. Because of the slightly higher strength it is a very pleasant whiskey to drink.
    • Nose
      This is another coffee ... what a separate nose that I've never smelled before. Nice and clean and oily, something that certainly appeals to me. What is striking is that if you breathe deeply into the glass the darker tones start, and gradually the fruit becomes stronger and stronger. The associations: think of the freshness of paraffin, diesel, and a lot of dustiness. In addition, I think of the skins of the grain. Perhaps unmalted grain has been distilled with it. In addition, it also comes across as burlap bales. The grain is certainly well represented in the nose. Furthermore also associations with mothballs in an old cabinet, but in a pleasant way. Finally also dried yellow fruit (apricot).
    • Taste
      Powerful, slightly peppery, and full, with oil, paraffin, diesel, malted and unmalted grain, jute, dried apricot and a slight spiciness of juniper and resin. The taste is nicely balanced and remains pleasant, barely bitter.
    • Finish
      The taste lingers long and still has the distinctive, raw taste of various oil products and dusty, unmalted grain. In addition, warming spicy notes of mainly the juniper and a nice light fruitiness.
