Over the next several months, I plan to complete a review series of Wiser’s Canadian Whiskies I will start with a relatively new member to the Wiser’s portfolio, the Wiser’s Small Batch Canadian Whisky, and then I will wander through their whisky family, reviewing the Wiser’s Special Blend, The Wiser’s Deluxe, and the Wiser’s 18 Year Old in no particular order. I will also complete a full review of a brand new Wiser’s Canadian Whisky, Wiser’s Legacy. ( I have previously provided a first impression of the Legacy (click the link to read this first impression), and now that the Wiser’s Legacy bottles will hit the store shelves soon it seems a good time to do this review series.)

A second review so quickly is hardly necessary. If you are interested, The review for the Wiser’s Red Letter whisky can be found here.
I confess that I look forward with great anticipation to this review series. I have always enjoyed the Wiser’s Whisky brands and the chance to give the entire whisky family a good once over with my review system is an opportunity that I cannot resist.

Corn and light rye flavours provide the foundation upon which the sweeter flavours are carried….

As usual I have a few cocktail suggestions for this whisky. Enjoy the review.
