Review: Mister Sam Tribute Whiskey

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 10, 2019

Yesterday, Sazerac unveiled Mister Sam which pays homage to Sam Bronfman, who is considered to be the pioneer who founded of the modern-day distilled spirits industry. Bronfman immigrated to Canada from Imperial Russia in the late 1800s, and went on to propel Seagram’s into the largest and most successful distilled spirits company in the world at that time. Sam was apparently focused on making and blending the finest whiskies possible, and maintaining the highest quality standards in the industry. “Mister Sam” as he was affectionately known created some of the world’s most iconic spirit brands while at the helm of the Seagram’s empire until his death in 1971. As a tribute to Sam Bronfman and the vast contribution he made to the spirits industry, the Sazerac Company has developed a highly limited blended whiskey expression made with some of Sazerac’s finest American and Canadian Whiskeys.

The “Mister Sam” blend was created by Sazerac’s Master Blender Drew Mayville whose career included a 22 year stint at Seagram’s where he was the fourth and last Master Blender under the Seagram dynasty. Mayville had the vast array of Sazerac’s American and Canadian Whiskey stocks at his disposal while developing the final blend.

According to Drew Mayville:

“I was thrilled to be able to work on the blend for this exciting tribute whiskey.  Mister Sam was known to say ‘Distilling is a science; Blending is an art,’ and he’s right.  Creating the elusive perfect blend is every bit about experimentation and precision.  We’re very proud of the whiskey we’ve created.”

Yesterday I gave everyone a teaser and promised that today I would publish my full review of the Tribute Whiskey. Here is a link to that full-page review:

Review: Mister Sam Tribute Whiskey

“… Upon the palate, Mister Sam arrives with the brute force of a sledge-hammer threatening to knock your tonsils down your throat with unabashed whiskey fury. The resulting belt to the mouth leaves you wondering what just happened, but at the same time hoping it will happen again. The whiskey might have rattled my taste buds, but the rich robust flavour is undeniable …”

I hope everyone enjoys the review as much I enjoyed the whiskey!

Chimo!
