WAYNE GRETZKY NO. 99 RED CASK
STYLE: BLENDED WHISKY
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.
