Distillery: Corby Distillers of Wiser’s, Toronto ON
Age: 7 YR
Nose: A Complexity of sweet dried fruits, underlying peppery spice, subtle toffee notes.
Palate: A well balanced blend of vanilla and toffee, dried fruits.
Notes: Late in the 1990s, Corby Distillers did something bold. Having recently taken over management of North America’s largest distillery, the Hiram Walker plant in Windsor, Ontario, Corby’s began to work on developing some new, high-end Canadian whiskies.The result was the short-lived and sadly missed Canadian Whisky Guild. Three whiskies comprised the guild: a soft Canadian blend called Gooderham and Worts, the all-rye-grain Lot No. 40, and a fruity, port-finished ten year old called Pike Creek.
