Nose: Citrus Fruit. Marshmallow. Dried Fruit. Cashew. Sweet Vanilla
Palate: Creamy entry gives way to a spritz which I could only accredit to the 43.4% abc…but it was distracting. Butterscotch flavors were sidelined by the overwhelming butterscotch aroma lifting like a cloud.
Honey and a cranberry fruitiness preceded burnt toffee.
There’s a heavy corn influence at the end.
Finish: Medium to short. The alcohol and tannin remain on the gums.
Overall, I’d say Wisers Small Batch Canadian Whisky makes a better mixer than sipper.
The corn is very pronounced at the end, lingering in the throat likes it’s waiting for something to wash it down.
I’m a big fan of the Wiser’s 18 to pair with cigars.
Wiser’s Legacy is one of my favourite sipping whisky’s.
So Small Batch fills that niche of one of the Wiser’s for mixing.
