Review: J.P. Wiser’s Guy Lafleur Alumni Whisky 

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 3, 2019

A couple years ago J.P. Wiser’s and the NHL Alumni Association (NHLAA) got together to bring whisky fans something uniquely Canadian. Regionally marketed whiskies which were blended with the aim of mimicking characteristics of each region’s favourite Hockey Players.

J.P. Wiser’s Guy Lafleur Alumni Whisky is a pretty special whisky as it is one of only a few single grain 100 % corn whiskies released by J.P. Wiser’s to date. In keeping with the chosen alumni member it is meant to represent, the spirit has been aged 10 years (Guy Lafleur wore number 10 on his jersey), and the whisky is described as ‘Naturally Smooth” which is in keeping with how Guy’s playing style was often described. The spirit was matured in a unique manner being aged for 10 years in American Oak and then finished in Speyside, bourbon, and rum barrels.

Here is a link to my latest review:

Review: J.P. Wiser’s Guy Lafleur Alumni Whisky

“… The breezes bring initial impressions of oak spice and corn with light vanilla and butterscotch accents. Although this is a 100 % corn whisky there is nevertheless an impression of spicy rye grain in the air and as the glass breathes I also notice impressions of rich maple and marmalade with hints of marzipan …”

Please enjoy my review, and stay tuned for more on the J.P. Wiser’s Alumni Edition Whiskies.

Chimo!

Note: This whisky is a Canadian only release and is almost completely sold out across the country. Grab some while you still can if you are a collector.
