Review: J.P. Wiser’s Wendel Clark Alumni Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 10, 2019

A couple years ago J.P. Wiser’s and the NHL Alumni Association (NHLAA) got together to bring whisky fans something uniquely Canadian. One time edition Canadian whiskies which are each blended with the aim of containing characteristic links to specific NHLAA members who helped to design the blend.

J.P. Wiser’s Wendel Clark Alumni Whisky is similar to Lot No. 40 (also produced by J.P. Wiser’s) in that it is a Single Grain Rye whisky. In the case of this Alumni Whisky, unmalted rye is used. The spirit is distilled once upon a column still and then distilled a second time on a pot still. The spirit is then aged for 11 years in ex-bourbon barrels. The product has two obvious ties to the character of Wendel Clark, the first is the robust rye grain selected by Wendel himself for this whisky, and the second is the bottling proof 41.6 % alcohol by volume which is the Toronto area code of Maple Leaf Gardens Where Wendel played hockey for much of his career.

Here is a link to my latest review:

Review: J.P. Wiser’s Wendel Clark Alumni Whisky

“… The breezes above the glass bring me impressions of oak sap and cedar with vanilla and rye, honeycomb, canned fruit all joining in the fray. Wood spice builds with marmalade and sap melding together to form a yummy aroma that has my mouth watering just a little …”

Please enjoy the review, and stay tuned for my reviews of the newest Alumni releases, Yvan Cournoyer, Mark Messier, and Dave Keon.


Note: As part of the partnership with the NHL Alumni, a potion of the sales are be donated to NHLAA to support their philanthropic causes. This whisky was exclusive to Canada and marketed primarily in Quebec and Ontario.
