Rye and Canadian Whisky

Bourbon and Scotch may be the superstars of the whisky world but the judges were pleasantly surprised by how good these offerings were. There was real complexity here, with a wide variety of styles represented. The best examples were spicy and intense, often with hints of butterscotch, flowers, and white pepper. The Ninety 20 Year from Highwood Distillers was the category winner and not only was it delicious, rich and satisfying but it’s also incredibly affordable for a 20 year old whisky. There’s a lot to like in this category and savvy consumers have some terrific deals available to them. Tim Harder
