The Corbyville plant was closed in 1989 (to be replaced by stock distilled in Windsor at Hiram Walker - HW was the majority shareholder after Allied Lyons bought control of Corby). I recall the older dram being more fruity and the current one is more smooth and non-estery but is still very good - almost Cognac like. Great value again.

Heck yes, Wiser's 18 is nice.

And cheers to you too, Joe
