The Wiser's whiskies are currently distilled at the Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery in Windsor, Ontario.
Nose: strong aroma of pleasant old sweet maple coupled with not-so-pleasant undefined astringent cleaning chemicals
Body: thin body, maple syrup consistency, coating the tongue
Taste: very sweet,like maple syrup. There is a lot of wood flavour and very noticeable spiciness, probably from rye, but, as with the nose, it tastes like there are cleaning chemicals mixed in with the taste of the maple syrup.
Finish: the flavours last quite long and fade away together. The chemical flavour is the strongest flavour at the end.
Balance: I have sampled from this bottle for 3 1/2 months now. For the first 3 months I thought this was quite possibly the worst whisky I have ever had in my mouth. For 3 months all I could taste was the industrial chemical taste, and some obscured spice in the background. At 3 months the flavours opened up a lot and mellowed out somewhat, with more sweetness becoming apparent, and an easier access to the wood and spice flavours. Now I would consider this drinkable, but at the low end of desirability.
