If you're familiar at all with Wiser's, you know what to expect here. The sweetish aroma has caramel corn and vanilla. A hint of permanent marker. With time, some wet leaves and mineral notes and eventually some fragrant new oak.

Not a huge departure from their Deluxe blend, but it is noticeably richer on the tongue. Creamy, medium-bodied delivery with some sweetness and slight citrus notes giving way to a touch of bitterness as the oak takes hold mid-palate. The bitterness fades fast, leaving an aftertaste of orange peel and oak.

Overall, a smooth, easy-drinking whisky with a fairly rich body and a quiet complexity in the flavour. Nothing to get excited about, but a decent option for an affordable sipper or good-quality mixer.

Is this the one that the Doc was raving about in early winter?

I have to admit my experience with Wiser's, aside from reviewing a mini of Deluxe, is mostly higher end products with higher ABVs and maybe a bit older, I guess the question is, if someone had a bottle or 2 of Legacy, Red Letter, Dissertation, 23 YO CS, etc..., would this add something new and special?

It might, but I suspect for many it will land too close to the bottom shelf in terms of style to be of much interest.

A better fit might be certain Alumni Series bottlings such as Martin Brodeur, if still available.
