Wayne Gretzky No. 99 Canadian Whisky

Now we have 3 expressions!

Wayne Gretzky No. 99 Canadian Whisky...$29.99
Whisky made the Canadian way – locally sourced grains are individually distilled, matured and blended, then finished in red wine casks from our Wayne Gretzky winery.

A bright straw gold colour with a ruby red hue. At first swirl of the glass look for top notes of toasty new oak, almond nuttiness, caramel and vanilla. Then underlying notes appear suggesting nutmeg spice and stone fruit. After adding a touch of water, added notes of sweet spice and dark raisin develop. The mouth-feel is smooth, round and robust, with a touch of woody tannins for structure, along with deep notes of toasted nuts and allspice. The finish is long and lingering with a delicately sweet, smooth texture and flavours of nut and allspice.

Wayne Gretzky No. 99 Canadian Whisky 99 Proof...$69.99
The most premium of whiskies, 99 proof is a whisky to sip neat or with a drop of water. Our local grains are individually mashed, distilled and aged in 100% American Oak barrel, and finished for more than 100 days in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from Wayne Gretzky Winery. Each barrel is hand selected by our Master Distiller for the quality of the spirit, and finished in our rickhouse.

Wayne Gretzky No. 99 Canadian Whisky Ice Cask...$44.99
This rich, inviting whisky is barrel aged according to Canadian tradition and finished with Wayne Gretzky Ice Wine Casks.  It opens with a nose of English Toffee and dark chocolate with hints of clove and spice.    Subtle sweetness imparted by the double maturation and Icewine casks works in harmony with the rye spice.   The finish is long, lasting and complex.
