Wayne Gretzky No. 99 Red Cask


WAYNE GRETZKY NO. 99 RED CASK
STYLE: BLENDED WHISKY
REGION: CANADA
ABV: 40%

It would be easy to dismiss this as yet another celebrity endorsement, but fans of both hockey and ‘rye’ will be pleasantly surprised by this elegant blend of corn and for-genuine rye, finished in Cabernet wine casks. Light in body but long on flavour, the wine lends a spicy sheen as the palate flirts between fruit and pepper, closing out with a playful bite that nips at the heels. A well-balanced whisky that grows on you, and a welcome – and long overdue – addition to the Canadian whisky pantheon.
