Just ordered a bottle of Weller 19YO and thought I'd better get something else as the postage is the same.

JM rated it as 93. Two higher than VWFR rye 13YO but the same as JB rye

Anyway its my first bottle of Canadian for many years and, well, I'm not that impressed. Its like a mixture of American rye and Vodka. In fact it really does have a Vodka-ish edge to the palate. I have a feeling it will probably make a decent whisky sour as it does have some edge to it.

On the plus side it is very drinkable and unoffensive but does not compare to American whisky or Scotch in terms of complexity or intensity (IMHO).

I have a feeling the Weller may make ammends

Cheers,
