    Not sure about old versions but have to agree with Gillman on the current version of Wiser's 18 - though I prefer the nas Legacy.

    Agree with Gary also being mindful when I refer to a Canadian Whisky as being rich, full and complex that's in comparison to other Canadians and not to Bourbon.

    Re: Report on Some Old-School Canadian Whiskies

    I've come around to Canadian as its own thing, so I won't be expecting an American richness going in. And as we don't have Legaccy here will go grab a VO this week. Thanks guys!

    True as well - keeping in mind that the 18yo is 40%. The higher abv (45%) may be the a key reason the Legacy is the better of the two whiskies.

    It's a candy store in the bottle - but don't expect any finish. Not sure I would call it a rich pour. Perhaps relative to other Canadians, I don't have much experience with them.

    Ive virtually no exp w Canadians, but have come to adore my old Lot 40. Finish is the one area I find lacking, however. What to attribute that to?

    Its own thing, exactly.. (i.e., vs. other Canadians).

    The reason the finish is different than bourbon? The main reason is the Canadians do not use the new charred barrel, or not for 100% of the aging.

    I suppose it may simply be that. Nonetheless I will grab a bottle this week and give her a go.

    Sean if you're going to grab a VO I recommend the 8 year old VO Gold.
