J.P Wiser’s Introduces A Couple Of New Canadian Whiskies

By Nino Marchetti / June 30, 2018

J.P. Wiser’s is a relatively popular blended Canadian whisky that’s created and bottled in Windsor, Ontario at Hiram Walker & Sons, one of the largest distilleries in North America. The brand, managed by Corby Spirits and Wine, has recently introduced two new limited edition bottlings.

The first, known as J.P. Wiser’s Canada 2018, was created to celebrate Canada’s birthday. The bottle it comes in features a Canadian map to pay tribute to the 200th anniversary of the 49th parallel – the border that defined Canada as a country. It is said to offer a palate of sweet green apple, dried fruit, oak and subtle clove with a slight rye spice finish. The whisky is available in stores throughout that nation.

“As a Canadian brand that has been around since the very beginning of Canada’s history, we wanted to continue the legacy of commemorating milestones and to celebrate the country we call home.” said Keeshan Selvakumar, Senior Brand Manager, Corby Spirit and Wine, in a prepared statement.

Joining Canada 2018 is J.P Wiser’s Seasoned Oak. It is a rather interesting 19 year old Canadian blended rye whisky “that was finished in casks, where the white oak was dried in the natural environment for over 4 years before the barrel was constructed.” It is said this seasoning step helps breakdown the wood extracts, creating “a unique balance between the whisky and the premium oak casks.”

Seasoned Oak is bottled at 48% ABV and pricing around $100 CAD. It is available exclusively in LCBO stores in Ontario, Canada.
