2019 Rum Howler Favourite 20 Canadian Whiskies: #20 – High River Canadian Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 3, 2019

This year I have shortened my list of favourite Canadian Whiskies considerably as I have selected only 20. The main reason for this is that I just ran out of time to do a comprehensive list especially in a year where I wasn’t as active doing reviews as I normally am. This years list doesn’t necessarily reflect the 20 best Canadian Whiskies, rather it represents my favourites. Some are mixer’s, some are sippers, and some are somewhere in between. But all are whiskies which I would have no hesitation sharing with my friends or enjoying on my own.

Let’s start with number 20, High River Canadian is owned by Sazerac, the producers of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

Here is a link to my recent review:

Review: High River Canadian Whisky

“… There is a light impression of maple and cedar which combine with grain to give me an impression of graham wafers dipped in syrup. Oak builds with vanilla and almond making me think of marzipan. Marmalade and chocolate complete the nose which seems to be rich and full of whisky goodness …”

Please enjoy my review which includes a nice recipe suggestion, the Bitter Chocolate Old Fashioned.


Note: As we get further along in this list (I hope to publish one whisky per day through until December 22nd), I will introduce 20 more of my favourites. The listing is roughly in order, although I would be the first to caution you that I don;t really have an overall fave. Some days I like to sip, and some days I like to mix.

    Are there any agricole rums coming?

    • Yes indeed, although it is getting harder to figure out what a true agricole is. A lot of the ‘agricoles’ appear to be of mixed linage. But stay tuned….
