Canadian whisky…. The final frontier… These are the voyages of the vessel known as Glencairn. It’s ongoing mission, to seek out new spirits, to boldly drink where @Nozinan has not drunk before…

For those of you who have read earlier reviews of mine you will know 2 things. First, they tend to run on. Second, when I do a review of a Canadian whisky, I tend to score it lower than I tend to score scotches.

Well, no longer. In the spring my palate discovered Hiram Walker (Wiser’s, Corby etc…). I had the opportunity to taste a few at Spirit of Toronto, and when Dissertation and Union 52 became available I spent a lot of time on those reviews, tasting them more than once. For the latter, I actually did different glasses on different days.

Recently, when I found out that Wiser’s Legacy was being discontinued, not just on hiatus, I decided to use some gift card money to buy some, to see if I wanted to have some stashed away before it’s gone. This coincided with a visit by my brother in law, @Nosebleed, and I used the opportunity to taste together a few Canadians, including three other Wiser’s expressions, and then we opened this one. It was during this Canadian immersion that I had an epiphanic moment and I realized “I GET Canadian Whisky”. I think I finally understand, deep inside, what it’s about.

This expression is reviewed in my usual manner, allowing it to settle after which I take my nosing and tasting notes. As always, I did not add water to this Canadian whisky. The bottle was opened on October 9th and 19 and then today, and has been gassed after each use.


Nose: 22/25

In the glencairn, I get caramel, a hint of spice and some fruit. Cinnamon, some sort of fragrant solvent. And something I’ve never noticed in a Canadian before, the smell upon entering a fish shop. This dissipates with time. After pouring most of it out into a Kentucky bourbon glass, what’s left gives off more fruit. Some apple.

In the bourbon glass, stewed McIntosh apples and cinnamon, and as it is drying after pouring into the next glass, I get butterscotch. In the Canadian whisky glass I get a spicier nose and some pickle juice. The drying glass is heavy on rye spice.

Taste: 22/25

This definitely tastes like a “Canadian” whisky (a GOOD Canadian whisky). In the Glencairn, vanilla, caramel, pepper, spiciness. A little thin on the mouthfeel. A little sweeter in the bourbon glass , creamier. In the Canadian glass it seems to have a balance between sweet and savory. The longer it is in the glass (I’ve been working on this review close to 2h), the better the palate comes together.

Finish: 22/25

Astringent, surprisingly long, peppery. Not sweet at all. A little anise at the drop off.

Balance: 21.5/25

Maybe a little too bitter overall on the palate, and I would have preferred a slightly stronger nose with a little more complexity.

Score: 87.5/100

I give this showdown to the Canadian Whisky Glass.


I’m glad I have a spare bottle of this. I’ll be paying close attention to Legacy over the next couple of weeks as I decide whether I would like another in the bunker. I think I like the Dissertation profile a little better but that will have to wait for a H2H on another day.

I admit my bias as to always considering Canadian whiskies to be on a lower tier than Scotches and bourbons. Low ABV, filtered, coloured, sketchy 1/11 rules, all that stuff. But I’ve been thinking a lot of Dr. Don Livermore’s assertion that Canadian whisky’s strength is in its flexibility. It may be mostly marketing fluff, but I do see how our rules, while resulting in a lot of bottom shelf swill, allow certain expressions to stand out. Subtlety is key here, though the good doctor coaxes a lot of flavour from lower ABVs. As a big flavours person, it’s very different from the others and something I still have a lot to learn from.

Luckily I discovered this in time, when premium Canadian whisky is on the rise. Let’s hope the price doesn’t follow the whisky too quickly.

"... Hiram Walker (Wiser’s, Corby etc…)..."

That's part of what turns me off about Canadian whisky. Like bourbon, it seems to be a bunch of brands—a bunch of brands produced by a few big distilleries. (Is that about right?)

I can't follow it all. I dislike the "branding" element on principle and I find it all just too overwhelming to even attempt to sort through. To know what's what, you have to figure out which ones are made by the same people, and then figure out what distinguishes one brand from another within the same house? Get outta here.

I much prefer the situation in Scotland. Even though you have scores of distilleries with esoteric Gaelic names, at least most of the whisky comes from the place named on the bottle. (Single malts, not blends.)

On this scale, I s'pose Ireland is somewhere in between.


Of course, the other problem with Canadian whisky is that it all tastes like maple. Maple and beaver. Right, @Robert99? wink

@MadSingleMalt I see you know a lot about Canada. But you forgot to acknowledge that Corby's and Wiser's each distill their product in separate igloos while chewing on seal meat.

For crying out loud, Diageo owns a gazillion distilleries and even the Islay stuff you have wet dreams over is matured somewhere on the mainland.

Like many other spirits companies, these have amalgamated or have been bought out over the years.

What's important is how the stuff is made and how it's matured, and how it's presented, just like Scotch, Bourbon, or cachaca.

Is the stuff good? Is it consistent? Is it worth spending $50 for?

@SKEPTIC , are you telling me I'm wrong? I very well could be. That's why I asked if I was right—if the Canadian whisky landscape is similar to what seems like the case with the major bourbon distilleries: A few big distilleries producing many different brands.

Or are you telling me in your delightful way that you disagree with my opinion about that landscape?

I don't think we have to force a competition between different styles of whisky. Sure, different people have their preferences and they ARE competing for our dollars, but just like my son learned he could love his dad without loving his mother any less, we can appreciate quality when we see it, even if it's not in our wheelhouse.

@Nozinan , huh? I don't think anyone's trying to crown a winner in the World Whisky Style Death Match. And I, at least, wasn't talking about quality. I was saying that the "many different brands from a few big distilleries" streak that seems to run through the Canadian whisky landscape is off-putting.

@SKEPTIC was either telling me that it's like that, or that he disagrees that it's off-putting—hard to tell which. But his insight into my wet dreams is uncannily accurate.

@Nozinan, I'm not sure I follow you. Are you saying that the existence of some brands in Scottish single malts undercuts my point about Canadian whisky (and bourbon) being a multitude of different brands produced by a few big distilleries?

Again, if I'm wrong about that being the landscape of Canadian whisky, please correct me. It seems to be the case, and a minute spent Googling the topic didn't clarify things for me one way or the other.

I need to get over my prejudices against Irish, American and Canadian whisk(e)ys. I am kind of stuck on Scotch whisky and never seem to consider buying anything else. I have around 65 bottles of Scotch, 2 bottle of Irish (Redbreast 12, Writers' Tears), one bottle of Bourbon (Buffalo Trace) and 3 bottles of Canadian (Crown Royal Reserve, Pendleton 1910, and Wiser's Legacy all of which my brother in law bought on various visits from Oregon and left half full). I am going to open the Legacy tonight and see if it can open my mind. (They say as you get older your waistline gets wider and your mind gets narrower).

@BlueNote , well I suppose we can certainly have our prejudices—and let's get into that too if you want. But I'm still just hoping someone will answer me about the brands. It all just seems like opaque mess to sort through.

Like with bourbon. (I just Googled this to get an example.) Jim Beam is Jim Beam. But Old Grand-Dad is also Jim Beam. And Booker's is also Jim Beam. And Basil Hayden is also Jim Beam. And I'm guessing there are more. Get outta here.

And according to @Nozinan here, Corby is Hiram Walker. And Wiser’s is Hiram Walker. And "etc." is Hiram Walker. (And can you just buy "Hiram Walker" too?)

I suppose there's a system and it makes sense to the folks who follow it, but it seems like a mess to me.

The SMWS bottles bourbon and Canadian whiskies under their single distillery designation, don't they? (Even though it's a number standing in for the distillery name.) I like that a lot better.

@MadSingleMalt, industry consolidation during the 80's followed by mergers and acquisitions in the 90's resulted in the family trees of some distilleries to have splintered trunks and broken branches. It is no different than the evolution of American producers, but in a different era.

This is an encouraging review. I have yet to open my bottle of Legacy. But these notes sound promising. I’m not all that concerned about the branding side of things. Hell, something like 90% of all Irish Whiskey is made at the Middleton distillery. What of it? Green Spot and Redbreast are still distinct whiskeys.

@OdysseusUnbound , didn't you find that ... disappointing ... when you learned that about Irish whisky? I sure did. You get the impression that there are all these different kinds, but then you find out that it's all just similar—if not identical—stuff being put out by the same distillery.

And then if you care enough about it to try to figure out what's what, it's a mess.

@MadSingleMalt But they are all different. Who cares if they are made in the same place. Go to a restaurant you'll get meat, fish, veg, etc... all cooked in the same kitchen.

The issues of consolidation and monopoly are important, but very different from taste, smell, and quality.

@MadSingleMalt Disappointing? I'm not so sure. Maybe if every distillery in Scotland dropped age statements, I'd be worried or disappointed. So there is a downside, for sure. But the processes for each expression, even within a single distillery, are different. If Redbreast was made in a different building than Green Spot, would they be "more different" than they currently are? I'm not so sure. Knob Creek and Jim Beam are both Beam products, but they taste different. The flip side is that Four Roses sells their Single Barrel under one label, even though the barrels and warehouses are different, effectively making them different whiskeys, yet they bear the same name.

Edit: I guess the whole thing would bother me if I found out that J.P. Wiser's 18 YO and Wiser's Dissertation contained literally the same juice in the same proportions that makes up Wiser's Deluxe. If I was being sold the same juice for more money under a different label, yeah I'd be upset. But having tasted Wiser's Deluxe and Wiser's Dissertation, I'm 99.99999999999999999999999999% sure that they're quite different.

@MadSingleMalt Not sure what your concern is. As @OdysseusUnbound and @Nozinan said; if all the expressions all tasted the same there would be cause for concern, but even though they come out of the same distillery they are all (or mostly) distinctly different. I gather you find this an issue with Irish, American and Canadian whisk(e)ys but not Scotch whisky.

There's just something ... unappealing? bland? ... about how the diversity suggested by the brand selection on the shelf doesn't actually represent the diversity of distilleries making the stuff. I suppose there are some rhymes and reasons to it...

What's usual deal with bourbons, that the better barrels become X and the lesser barrels become Y? Or some deal with warehouse location? Like with my example above where OGD and Basil Hayden are both Jim Beam products named after the same guy (right?), what's the difference? Is that difference explained on the label?

What's the typical differentiator among a Canadian distillery's brands—recipe?

With Irish, you do have some truly different whiskies being made at the same place thanks to Midleton's different stills and whatnot, but you also have a lot of brands that, from what I can tell, are just Jameson wannabes in a different label. I think this has gotten better over the past few years as the few major distilleries have been canceling contracts with NDPs.

With Scotch, I do indeed find it clearer (and just more appealing) with the single malts from the malt distilleries, as @BlueNote suggests. But with blends, yep: an opaque mess. I just Googled this, but beyond Johnnie Walker, Diageo blends also include J&B, Bell's, Black and White, White Horse, Vat 69, Dimple Pinch, and more?

Anyway, maybe we should just stop this conversation. I prefer straightforward distillery labels like you typically get on malts from Scotland, Japan, India, France, and Taiwan over the branded presentation of most other whiskies around the world. But nobody else seems to see the point I'm making or care either way, and that's fine.

Cheers to @paddockjudge for giving a substantive reply on the subject and confirming what we might have guessed about how a small number of Canadian distilleries ended up producing a large number of different brands.

@MadSingleMalt i agree with you on the inherent confusion in American and Canadian whisky (vast number of BRANDS distilled in the same building). However, as you admitted, 90% of Scotch Whisky (ie blends) suffer from the same problem. In addition, a large number of Single Malts mature in warehouses nowhere near where they are distilled! Furthermore, we now have peated Balvenie/GlenDronach/etc, unpeated Caol Ila... How are those BRAND extensions much different from the branding exercises perpetrated by Bourbon and Canadian "Rye"?

I'm less bothered by not knowing where the stuff is made than what they put in the bottle. As @Nozinan point out, the bigger problems with Cdn Whisky are "Low ABV, filtered, coloured, sketchy 1/11 rules...", and calling 100% corn whisky "rye", LOL

When I got into this "hobby" in 2010 Corby's Wiser's Legacy was the only Canadian whisky worth buying/sipping ... until the release of Lot no 40 in ~2012. Turns out this was not a coincidence since, according to scuttlebutt, one the component whiskies making up Legacy is what goes into Lot 40.

Despite the problems of filtration, colour, 1/11 rule, and lack of distillery disclosure continuing, Corby's is in the forefront of (finally) giving whisky geeks what they want: high abv, age statements, sipping whiskies.

Small steps but we how have: Lot no 40 CS - single grain, pot still, with an age statement (12), and high proof (55%). Wiser's 35yo - age statement, high proof (50%), cheap compared to Scotch ($165) Wiser's Dissertation/Last Barrels - high proof (45-46%), interesting despite the marketing backstories Gooderham & Worts Little Trinity - age stated (17), high proof (45%), grains disclosed

... shockingly, Canadian Club has just released a 40 year old whisky bottled at .... are you ready for it? ..... 45%!!!

... changing times for Canadian Whisky indeed. Is it a case of too little, too late? Time will tell but one thing is for sure, I'll be buying much less of these releases than if they had been available 5 years ago ...

@65glenfarclas, of course I agree with what you have said. I also remind all not to forget that high ABV distillation prior to extreme dilution is responsible for much of the low flavour density issue with many Canadian whiskies. But I do have to say, it is only with Canadian and Irish whiskies that 45% ABV is ever referred to as "high proof".

It's a relative thing, of course. If all you've had is 40%, then 45% ABV is a huge step up. And it IS a huge step up from 40%. But most connoisseurs are looking for a lot more flavour density than is delivered at 45% ABV. For a while there I got so used to drinking whisky in the 62-70% ABV range that I rejected some releases at 45% ABV that turned out to be excellent. My conditioning was that 45% ABV was "low proof". I accept 45% ABV more now, but it is still about 25% ABV below the drinking strength which I prefer.

@Victor Absolutely spot on. Being a "high proof snob" probably delayed my entry into the Canadian whisky market by a year or 2. It was almost "too late".

I think though, that some Canadian whiskies get more flavour into their product at 45% than a lot of single malts at the same strength. Then I met Macallan 12 and 18.

My education continues...

@65glenfarclas: "as you admitted, 90% of Scotch Whisky (ie blends) suffer from the same problem."

If you'll excuse a small protest from a word nerd, I gotta object to your use of "admitted" when I never expressed any enthusiasm for the branded world of blended scotch to begin with. It's just the straightforward "Distillery X 12 Years Old" labeling like you typically see in Scottish single malts that I'm a fan of.

That little bit of pedantry aside, I do see your points about some Scottish single malts being ...less "pure" maybe?... due to things like centralized warehousing and outsourced malting. I'm not sure what label to put on the continuum we're talking about, but on one end is something like Springbank 10 (or even better, Springbank 11 Local Barley) where the majority of production is done onsite and the straightforward label tells you where it came from. On the other end is something like JW Red mystery meat. In the middle would be the branded stuff cranked out of the big Canadian and American distilleries.

I disagree with your point about things like peated Glendronach, though. For a distillery that sells straightforward labels to try a new style of whisky under a similar straightforward label seems very different to me than an American distillery to try a new bourbon named after their latest favorite historical figure. I think a better parallel in the world of Scottish single malts would be the "Stronachie" single malts produced by Benrinnes.
