CANADIAN CLUB PREMIUM
If you’re going to enjoy whisky made in Whiskytown, Canada, you have to sip the whisky that started it all. It’s the classic known around the world and will set the stage for everything else you’ll taste while wandering throughout the city.
J.P. WISER’S TRIPLE BARREL RYE
The Triple Barrel Rye whisky offers a finish that’s silky smooth and long lasting, combining distillates from used whisky, first-fill bourbon, and virgin oak casks.
However, you can’t officially call yourself great without any accolades. Good thing the Triple Barrel was the winner of a gold medal at the 2017 Canadian Whisky Awards and also named the 2017 Sippin’ Whisky of the Year.
Lot 40 is my absolute go-to whisky on my shelf at home. Instead of rambling on about how much I love this whisky, I’ll let Mark Bylok of Whisky Buzz tell you more about Canada’s most award-winning whisky: “Lot No 40 is for whisky enthusiasts that love Canadian ryes…it is an unapologetic rye-forward Canadian whisky that set the bar back in 2012 and continues to hold the lead.”
WOLFHEAD COFFEE WHISKY
Wipe that preconceived opinion of flavoured whiskies out of your mind. This bottle from Wolfhead Distillery can be the perfect introductory whisky for those on the fence about enjoying the golden nectar of the gods. It smells just like a cup of coffee in your hands.
