Whisky Review: Schenley OFC Canadian Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 3, 2009

Schenley OFC Canadian Whisky
(The OFC stands for Original Fine Canadian)

Schenley OFC bills itself as the most decorated of Canadian Whisky boasting of 25 medal Selections at the Monde Selection Awards.  These awards, while impressive, only tell the story of previous Schenley bottlings.  I say, ‘previous’, because I notice a difference in the new bottles I have seen as opposed to the older Schenley OFC bottles.  The age statement, in the past, proudly stated ‘8 Years’.  That age statement is now entirely missing.  It remains to be seen whether some of the famous Schenley quality is missing as well.

I should note that Schenley OFC is distilled at Schenley Distilleries which have facilities in Valleyview Quebec, and Lethbridge Alberta.  It is my understanding that the facilities in Quebec are responsible for the distillation, aging and bottling of this whisky.

    This is excellent whiskey. 8 years old. Very light and flavorful. This has become my favorite Canadian. Value for money is very high. Makes a great rye and ginger. Good for sipping with a touch of branch water.

    I have a bottle of 1959 OFC by Schenley Canadian Whisky, with the originial packaging box. The certificate of age says 6 years. Neither my husband or I drink. I was wondering if this is worth anything and or if is there someplace that buys/sells old whisky. If not, the septic tank will be happy.


    • Hi Debra,

      Unfortunately, I have no idea as to the value of your bottle, It definitely should not go into your septic tank, as 1959 was part of the golden age of Canadian whisky. If you want to sell it I would check out ebay, as I have heard that they have a section for spirits now. Unfortunately there are various tax and border issues, which may have to be addressed of which I am not qualified to speak on except to say that the issues exist.

      Let me know whether you have any luck.
